The young luxury watch brand WRYST is well known for their Swiss Made luxury sports watches. Designed especially for motor race and sports loving customers, these trendy and luxurious watches are mainly powered with the highly reliable Swiss made quartz movements.
Now, the Swiss watch brand expands their lineup by introducing RACER AUTOMATIC collection with an aim to attract watch connoisseurs who are passionate about sports watches driven by mechanical movements.
For its case and strap, the new RACER AUTOMATIC watch takes inspiration from the brand’s other collections such as Elements, Isle of Man TT and Force. Made from the rugged 516L stainless steel, the 50mm diameter watch case features polished or brushed finish. For Racer SX4 version, the watch case is treated with DLC to enhance scratch resistant properties.
Other features of the watch include curved and AR coated sapphire crystal front glass with 2mm thickness , screw-in-crown, screw-in-case back with sapphire crystal window and the crown protection system integrated with the watch case. Each timepiece is rated for a water resistance up to 100 meters. Each timepiece comes fitted with a matching double-injection silicone strap and the package also includes an additional strap.
Powering each WRYST RACER AUTOMATIC timepiece is a Sellita SW200-1 calibre, a state-of-the-art mechanical self-winding movement manufactured in Switzerland. Bearing 26 jewels and beating at 28’800 vph (4hz), this highly reliable automatic movement features sweeping seconds hand and displays basic time with a date window at 3ó clock. The Sellita SW200-1 delivers 38 hours of autonomy when fully wound. The oscillating weight of the mechanical movement beats inside the watch is visible through the round smoked crystal window on the case back.
A major aesthetic highlight that differentiates this collection from other WRYST timepieces is its open-worked multi-layer dial, which fuses traditional watch making techniques with the racing car engine themed design. The dial details match the exterior colour theme of each version and some dial elements are inspired from the engine parts of racing cars.
