By TLex Introducing the T•a•c•t•i•c•o Type RE, the latest project from Crepas Watches' military division, also responsible for the TC1 and TC2. The Type RE, however is not the TC3 that will hopefully come in the following weeks or months.
The Type RE is a collaborative effort between Crepas and a group of 'die hard' watch aficionados and collectors from Spain's largest and highest trafficked watch forum, Relojes Especiales. Hence the name 'RE' the first two letters of the forum's name. This is their 2nd collaborative project after 'El Buzzo'.
This very special 'Flight' Chronograph watch draws upon a number influences, both vintage and contemporary it has been designed with the input from the 'RE' forum members and overseen and executed by Crepas.
Crepas, BTW have only just recently released their 3rd model, the cayman 3000. The Type RE is packed with details, each of them carefully and tastefully chosen. I particularly like the 'Top Gun' style caseback engraving (see bottom) - very cool!
Specifications are as follows: 316L Stainless steel case with brushed, polished and sandblasted finishes, custom Sapphire crystal, divers bezel with coin-edging and choice of three inserts (aluminum, Sapphire or steel), a screwdown - caseback, crown and chrono pushers, an Swiss made ETAsa 7753 chronograph movement and 200meters of water-resistance.
The T•a•c•t•i•c•o Type RE is not being sold by Crepas Watches it is only available through Relojes Especiales. Interested parties should contact them directly.
