Albert Riele was established as far back as 1881, but in more recent times have been acquired by Apart, one of Poland’s largest jewellery chains. The brand will be exhibiting at Baselworld, and one of the watches on show will be the brand’s flagship Premiere collection.
Its design is rooted in classic lines, with orchestrated details that instil a contemporary touch. Elegant contrasts take form such as the matte black chronograph counters that stand out against the silvered dial. These are echoed by the inner bezel ring that is circled by a date scale.
The expressive hands with their robust architecture offer maximum legibility, including at night thanks to the luminescent coating that also covers the hour-markers. All this is brought to life by a quartz movement, the Ronda 5040.F calibre. The watch is delivered on a leather strap with an additional steel bracelet.
Albert Riele is involved in a range of different sports. Their presence in sailing, equestrianism chess, the Arts, Music, and Movies gives the brand a more impressive presence than those unfamiliar with the brand might have imagined.
Premiere runs on a Ronda Quartz 5040.F movement. It’s a 44mm watch enased in 316L. Features include hours, minutes, seconds, date, day, month, and a chronograph.
If you don’t like this particular model, the Premiere collection offers 25 models to choose from, and in addition there’s the more dressy Concerto collection.
