Le Rhöne’s first model is the Road Racer. Its shape and design evoke the glorious days of American Pony cars of the 1960s. More specifically, for its first collection, the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1969 is the source of inspiration as considered as a mythical car, awakening passion, strength and freedom.
The Road Racer, defined by charming curves, contemplating its soft case from side to side, one perceives a family resemblance with the Hood of the Camaro 1969, reflecting then both attractive force and aggressiveness of a powerful V8. The chronograph counters are crafted as the mythical car’s Dashboard, the hands beeing the steering wheel, the bracelet / the strap echoes the tires ‘s DNA. The interior of the watch reveals an oscillating weight, inspired by the Camaro SS 1969 rods. Even the vertical guilloché of the dial reminds you the headlights of this iconic car.
The secret lies in a real and magical detail: the brand has managed to acquire a Camaro SS 1969’s original engine, and thus , has embedded its material parts on the left side of the case, creating a slab with the original engine block number engraved; a certified fragment from one of the greatest American pony cars of the sixties will be linked forever to your life, from the day you will wear a Road Racer on your wrist.
The back side is open to reveal an customized oscillating weight and a Dubois-Depraz movement.
