In the May 2018 edition of Viking Spirit, we took a brief look at the exciting new business of Old Boys Anthony Angeli (2011) and Michael Angeli (2014). The concept of Avgeli centres around watches that can instantly be restyled, allowing you to re-create a whole new look and feel, with the simple switch of a band.
It was family history that sparked the idea. In the early 1940s during a time of war and conflict, their grandfather Antony and his family fled their home in Greece on a small fishing boat into the great Mediterranean Sea. With no direction or destination in sight, he distracted himself from the unknown by weaving fishing line into different patterns. To share the significance of their grandfather’s inspiration and to pay homage to his journey to freedom, Anthony and Michael set about creating a range of simplistic, elegant and clean watches for both men and women. Every watch case is engraved with a man on a fishing boat and the double-weave perlon bands reference Antony’s woven fishing line, whilst also serving as a constant reminder of the preciousness of time.
