RALF TECH WRV Automatic 1977 Diplomate ROYALE

Fewer colour combinations are more royal than those of Navy Blue and Gold – RALF TECH has absolutely nailed it with the look of their newest WRV 1977!

Boasting a stunning lacquered Navy Blue dial with appliqué gold indexes, the WRV Automatic 1977 Diplomate has more than earnt the name, Royale.

It makes even more sense when you consider, Royale is also what the French Marine Nationale or French Navy is known as.



RALF TECH, a Franco Swiss brand famously equips the majority of the Special Forces in the French Navy – this model you could say is tribute to them.

This new version of the 1977 series, like its predecessors has been produced in Limited Edition of just 77 pieces.

It is characterized by its lacquered Navy Blue dial adorned with 2N18 Gold indexes, an alloy composed of yellow gold, silver and copper, recalling the blue cloth and the stripes and buttons of the French military sailor’s ceremonial uniforms.



With its screw-down crown positioned at 4 o'clock, its 3.5mm thick Sapphire crystal, diver’s bezel and 200 meters of water-resistance, the watch needn’t only stand on ceremony – it is also ready for action.

But should the occasion call for it a black Barénia calfskin strap, hand-stitched in the French Jura, offers the 1977 Diplomate Royale just the right amount of elegance. What do you think?
