The first core chronograph collection by the renewed Swiss brand appears to be heavily marine inspired.
Every watch possess the anchor-shaped indexes, the lugs reminiscent of the screws on a ship and, on the back of the watch, a helix shell engraving. The Arraw Marine collection is available in two case sizes: 42mm and 45mm made from a range of materials including titanium, black ceramic and red gold. And don’t forget the four RJ trademark bumpers in rubber, matching the composite elements ornamenting the satin-finished lugs. The case is completed with two push-buttons inspired by pistons from a ship’s engine room as well as a screwed-in crown guaranteeing water resistance to a depth of 100 meters. Some versions come fitted with diamond bezel.
The dials are sun-brushed, galvanized and gradient-painted, before being coated with transparent lacquer. The chronograph’s galvanic counters are integrated into the dial and are surrounded by circular displays that complement the satin-finished and arrow-shaped hands. The self-winding RJ-2040 movement displays a 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock, a 12-hour counter and a date aperture at 6, and small seconds at 3. The interchangeable strap system allows the strap to be released with a simple ‘click’ by pushing simultaneously on the two lug screws. A wide range of interchangeable rubber and alligator straps will be launched with the first models of the collection.
