By TLex Summer is already upon us and in celebration of arguably the best time of the year not least of all in France where RALF TECH’s headquarters are, is a new vintage diver –
named after the summer playground, the French Riviera or Côte d'Azur with its literally azure Mediterranean coastal waters that have been so beautifully echoed in the dial markers and hand stitching on the calfskin strap of the new WRV ‘’V’’ Auto 1977 Riviera.
Then there’s the clean white dial perhaps a reference to RALF TECH’s love of sailing and all those stunning white yachts that visit the Riviera in the summer months. And a splash of orange for the bezel pip, the seconds indicator and dial text just because ;)
This is the latest model in the 1977 family of vintage inspired divers. We’ve seen the: 1977 Vintage SERIES I and SERIES II, the red hot VOLCANO, the chic PARISIENNE, the PIRATE and now the new « Riviera the 5th 1977 Vintage model.
Specification of the new RALFTECH WRV « V » Auto 1977 Riviera is the same as any other model bearing the 1977 name: so that’s combination brushed and polished 43.8mm surgical-grade Stainless steel case, a 3.9mm thick Sapphire crystal, 200 of water-resistance and a Swiss automatic RTA002® movement based on an ETA 2836.
The new RALFTECH WRV « V » Auto 1977 Riviera is available, now in a Limited Edition of just 77 pieces priced 2250 €.
