London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. has unveiled a new Swiss-made wristwatch, which just like the company’s rifles is built to exacting standards and designed to stand the test of time, no matter where the road to adventure leads. They say time waits for no man and this eye-catching piece is set to be a continuing reminder to venture to all the places you ever dared.
Renowned for watch making, this Swiss timepiece features a circular 36mm Rigby blue face, displaying the Rigby ‘double R’ logo and date, with steel hands and indexes, filled with luminous Super-LumiNova® charged by light. Housed in a brushed and polished marine-grade stainless steel case, with a circular brushed and polished fixed steel bezel and screw-down crown, it is water resistant down to 15ATM (150m).
Powered by Sellita SW200-1 movement, a Swiss self-winding movement that comes with a ball-bearing rotor and 26 jewels, each watch boasts a 38-hour power reserve and a five-year warranty. Similarly to Rigby guns, each watch comes engraved with the Rigby logo and a unique, traceable serial number.
Completing the look, the watch is secured by a vintage oak leather strap and traditional buckle, which is not only contrasting and eye-catching, but comfortable to wear and comes presented in an elegant Rigby blue case.
Marc Newton, managing director of Rigby, commented: “Built from the finest materials available and to the highest standards possible, at Rigby we don’t compromise in terms of quality when it comes to our guns or accessories. Designed to blend into the wilds of Africa just as it would at the office, this is set to be a timeless, statement piece we hope you’ll want to wear everywhere and perhaps, pass down through generations”.
£2,340, plus P&P.
