Clearly inspired by the 1970s, this new garde temps is a link between two epochs. At the same time vintage and actual, the new WRV combines with ease the best of two worlds: the complex and elegant curves that pay homage to the visual clues of the seventies while employing at their best the current technology.
The case of this watch represents a series of daring forms and structures. Its structure, halfway between barrel and cushion, is atypical and elegant. The new 1977 Volcano, with its concave and convex shapes, offers a series of perfectly mixed contrasts accentuated even more by the finish of the case that combines polished and brushed steel.
This unique model of RT Maison reaffirms its personality through a bezel in aluminium in «Rouge Volcano » and a hand-stitched, black calfskin Barenia leather bracelet. The red theme is repeated on the seconds hand adorned with a touch of elegant rouge to match the bezel.
The WRV Volcano keeps the crown at 4 o’clock. Such arrangement allows to protect the crown without overcrowding the case with a crown guard. In this way also the comfort is greatly increased avoiding the crown to rest against the top of the wrist.
The timepiece mounts a sapphire glass 3,9mm thick, such feature is normally reserved for timepieces able to conquer great depths, this is a clear indication of the reliability of this model.
Equally at home in the city and in deep water, the WRV « V » Automatique 1977 Volcano is a real statement of style and everyday originality.
