Commando cool: Ralf Tech WRX 'A' Series Hybrid II

Ralf Tech have recently released their new WRX 'A' Series Automatic. The series is the result of two years of joint cooperation between their engineers and the French Navy's specialist combat divers of 'Commando Hubert'.

The WRX 'A' series was developed by RALF TECH with three main objectives:

Accuracy with an RTA001 automatic movement, based on an ETA 2824-2.

Legibility with Swiss C3 SuperLuminova for its hand and markers.

Reliability with 316L surgical stainless steel case construction, and a water-resistance of 500 metres.

The Hybrid II is available in two models "day" and "night". Both are equipped with the exclusive hybrid RTE001 movement and a strengthened crown. The watches are water resistant to 500 metres and equipped with real NATO straps reinforced with leather and a hypoallergenic silicone bracelet.

The Hybrid II is a limited edition of 300 numbered engraved pieces. Price is expected to be around $1,700.00.
