Ril Concept presents its debut watch model – Ril Watch Scuba, a simple and robust diving watch.
Ril Concept is a brain child of Nathan Halfon and Roger Gilbert, two connoisseurs of life’s finer things, and watch collectors. Both have formed London-based Ril Concept – pronounced “real” – to create and offer desirable objects that accommodate sensible budgets. Ril Concept’s debut product is a mechanical wristwatch that combines style, functionality and horological appeal. Its look will communicate immediately to a watch enthusiast. Its name is Ril Watch Scuba.
The Ril Watch Scuba is a simple and robust diving watch conceived to address all of the requirements of a modern, unisex timepiece, at home on the beach, in the boardroom, at a club or a rave. Its size is a generous 38mm, small enough for a lady’s wrist, large enough to suit a man’s. The watch employs a stainless steel, three-piece case, with graduated, unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-down crown and sapphire glass; its ruggedness is indisputable.
Designed in London and manufactured in China, Ril Watch Scuba is powered by a high quality Japanese automatic movement with a generous 48-hour power reserve. Ril Watch Scuba is presented in a luxurious case, and all watches are supplied with both a regimental G10 NATO strap and a solid stainless-steel adjustable bracelet. Its dial is unadorned, showing no brand, for Ril Concept believes that the Ril Watch Scuba should say but one thing: “It belongs to you.” Only a Ril Watch Scuba’s owner will know the brand, its name relegated to the case-back.
Ril Concept’s primary mission is to design and sell purist objects manufactured to high standards, but at a price: an affordable price. Additionally, Ril Concept is global, so universal price parity means that Ril Watch Scuba will sell for USD $999, CHF 999 tax included, GBP £599 VAT or €699, whether purchased from one of Ril Concept’s appointed agents, or via the Ril Concept web site: http://www.rilconcept.com. For every watch sold, Ril Concept will donate USD $6 to the charity Shelter, to assist the homeless in England.
