This year points numerous commemorations. For example: 75 years prior, D-Day occurred in Normandy, France. That turned the destiny of the Second World War to improve things and brought about freeing Paris soon a short time later (have you perused our D-Day related watch survey of Tockr? ).
In August, the rowdy world will commend the 50th commemoration of the unbelievable Woodstock Festival. It was seven days of free love and incredible music. In conclusion, something more watch related, July 21 will stamp the 50th commemoration of the Moon arrival. We Speedy Tuesday folks realize this obviously, however Omega isn’t the solitary watch maker that plans for the event. During SIHH 2019, RJ (once in the past known as Romain Jerome) acquainted us with their understanding of a Moon watch, the ARRAW 6919. Indeed, another watch connected to the arrival. What’s more, somehow or another, with a more grounded “association” to the occasion than some other brand.
As I have just referenced in the presentation above, RJ (tragically it has nothing to do to our RJ Broer) used to bear the name Romain Jerome. Some of you may recall that 10 years prior the brand previously had a moon-related model. It was the Romain Jerome Moon Dust-DNA assortment, a progression of watches with genuine Moon dust on their dial. Delivering themed watches (simply think about their Batman or Joker watches) has consistently been the specialty of the company. They remained on a similar way even after the renaming. Along these lines, it is nothing unexpected that another oddity of SIHH 2019 was their Two-Face, motivated by another Batman scoundrel; Harvey Dent otherwise known as Two-Face. Be that as it may, how about we return to ARRAW 6919. The name is really clear as crystal (1969-2019) yet where is the unique association, I discussed above, is coming from? Indeed, that is the cool piece of the story.
RJ got their hands on certain pieces and pieces that came from the real Apollo 11 shuttle. Be that as it may, where would you be able to get such things? – you wonder. All things considered, at specific sales. Furthermore, this is the way it finds a way into the watch; the bezel is a similar material simply like the remainder of the 45mm ordinary RJ – style case. You can see little gaps all around the bezel surface. These patterns are covered by acrylic glass “windows” and under in an exceptional lightweight composite material untruth the Apollo 11 shuttle pieces. Envision it like a mosquito caught in golden, where the golden is the composite material and the mosquito is the piece of the spacecraft.
We’ve been informed that the pieces and pieces from the Apollo 11 space creates that RJ got their hands on, were placed in a blend and blended in with different metals. From this material, they made within the straightforward bezel. RJ didn’t need to comment on the weight or measure of Apollo 11 material they had the option to obtain, yet by dissolving it and combining it with different materials, it was clearly enough to top off bezels of 300 watches (see toward the finish of this article). I do consider how one is ensured that your bezel totally contains material of the Apollo 11, or that the material your bezel has quite recently missed those spots of shuttle material. Maybe the sentiment is additionally in the way that you never know for sure.
The ARRAW 6919 comes in 3 case materials, dark ceramic, grade 5 titanium or 5N+ 18k red gold. The showcase case back is similar material fixed with 6 screws. The water opposition is 100m.
360 moon phase
With a case like that it is extremely unlikely, the RJ ARRAW 6919 would have a basic dial. However, the highlights are not flooding the watch face. We make some straightforward memories just watch with date and moon stage sign. The gap for the date is at 3 o’clock anyway as the dial is straightforward the entire date wheel is noticeable. The moon stage pointer isn’t fixed as you’d see on most watches. It pivots around the dial in 29.5 days (one full Moon cycle). The brand logo plate is over the moon plate, so as the 2 plates turn around, the RJ logo plate consistently remains in an upstanding position, while the moon plate gradually vanishes under it when they arrive at the 6 o’clock position. At that point for the second piece of the cycle, the moon plate gradually shows up and becomes completely noticeable when they arrive at 12 o’clock.
A marvelous case and dial merit a similarly amazing development. The base type of the ARRAW 6919 is Sellita’s SW-280. That is a programmed development with moonphase sign, 26 gems and 36 hours of force hold. Nonetheless, RJ alters the SW-280 in-house to accommodate their licensed 3D pivoting moon stage show work. The new type RJ-2180 has 41 gems now and a force save of 38 hours. The recurrence stays as before at 28,800vph. There are no correctors on the case, everything from the chance to the date and the moon stage can be set through the crown. Oneself winding rotor is noticeable through the showcase window working on this issue back. At the point when the moon stage plate is covering the 3 o’clock position the date can be perused at an optional date-outline between the 4-5. Simply add +4 as it says underneath the frame.
Strap and more
If you might want to change the lash on the RJ ARRAW 6919 you can do as such by their fast change framework. Press the two catches on the carries at the same time to deliver the tie. The polyamide lash has an elastic decorate making it water safe and more comfortable on the wrist. Every one of the 3 renditions come in a restricted release of 100 pieces each, the quantity of your watch is outwardly of the situation back. To the extent the costs go, for the ceramic form you need to pay €18,300, for the titanium the tag is at €18,900. As you’d envision the most costly is the gold at €31,400. We’ve seen various moon stage watches at SIHH 2019 however it’s protected to say that the most significant was the RJ ARRAW 6919.
