RE-DESIGN and DESIGN AWARDS

Three design awards have already been won by our DWISS R1 automatic watches: two awards for the RC1 models and one for the RS1 model. We are using the same case design that won these awards and completely re-de- signing the time display with a Wandering Hour module.

WANDERING HOURS

This concept was first created in the XVII century by the Campanus brothers for Pope Alexander XII. It consists of an arm with discs at the ends that rotate and show the current hour and point to the minutes along the arc-shaped track. In recent years, some of the most pres- tigious watch brands have used this concept to produce incredible watches, such as: Audemars Piguet with the Star Wheel, Vacheron Constantin and Urwerk.

DWISS is introducing this time display for the first time in its collection. Our model has a two-arm module with discs at the ends: one for the odd hours and the other for the even hours

The rotating satellite display shows the hours and points to the correct minutes around the dial.

SPECIFICATIONS

The RW1 uses a Swiss made automatic movement caliber ETA 2824-2, elabore grade. It is 4 times more precise than a Japonese Miyota movement, and also more precise than a Chinese Tourbillon.

20 ATM water resistance, meaning it is suitable for swim- ming, a sapphire crystal so you won’t scratch the glass of your watch, and a Superluminova BG-W9 so you can see the time in the dark.
