RSW Unveils The Classic, The Regulator and The Rugged

RSW, a Rama Watch SA Swiss brand,  situated on the shores of Lake Biel in the medieval town of Le Neuveville, manufacture watches with a twist remaining unique in a burgeoning horological market.

Basel World 2012 marks RSW's  introduction  of three new watch collections.  Each collection attracts a different taste.  The Classic.  The Regulator.  The Rugged.

Le Neuveville Collection - The Classic

This Collection pays tribute to RSW's home town's 700th anniversary by naming an entire collection after its name -  "Le Neuveville".  Le Neuveville was founded in 1312 by the bishop of Basle - Gerard de Vuippens.

The Le Neuveville Collection is a classic analog display sporting a vintage design. This formal dress watch is a handsome steel or steel coated with yellow PVD timepiece equipped with a signature RSW patented fold out crank crown.  Beneath the case a highly efficient automatic ETA 2824-2 movement ensures maximum timekeeping precision.  A quartz model powered by an ETA 955.112 movement  is also available - distinguishable from the mechanical model by a traditional crown. 
The dial is available in white, black and gray sun ray pattern.

RSW High King Collection - The Regulator

The Regulator Complication must have the hours indicated on a different sub dial. On this model the Roman Numeral Hours are indicated on a sub dial located at the 12 'o'clock position, while the long minutes are indicated by a single central hand. The seconds hand sub dial is located a the 6 'o'clock position.
A discrete date aperture resides at the 3 'o'clock position.

 The bezel is an enigmatic display of steel work adding a futuristic charm to the timepiece. The watch is powered by an excellent automatic RSW 1912 ETA based Dubois Dépraz 14070.

Look for the watch in different case and dial combinations.

Urban Contemporary Collection: Diving Camo Tool Limited Edition - The Rugged

So here is the watch that caught my attention in the first place.  It breathes ruggedness and adventure.  Actually I am quite drawn to it.  The angular lines resemble a rocky outcrop on the African Savannah, and RSW is taken the theme further by adding a camo dial motif. Aside from its tough appearance this watch is one hell of a diver. Take it down 980 feet and the automatic ETA 2824-2 movement will keep ticking . Depending on your wanderings and the adventurers you seek - whether by land or sea - you have a choice of Woodland Green or Oceanic Blue surrounded by a case of solid steel or PVD coated steel. Only 49 pieces are available in each combination.  And to ease your journey, the Diving Camo Tool Timepiece is accompanied by a very handy Camo-style Swiss army knife as well as a rubber and NATO strap.
