Launched at the end of 2019, TPS, which stands for Tachymeter & Pulsometer, has been dedicated to the vintage watch aficionados who look for modern interpretations. The new model is based on the early sixties refined and detailed chronographs.
ROUE TPS is a tribute to the Porsche 910, winner of the Nürburgring 1000 kilometer race in 1967. This car gave Porsche the most sentimental of its victories after a decade of trying an overall win in Germany’s most prestigious sports car race.
The homage is present in an elaborated embossed car front drawn on the screw case-back. This new ROUE watch houses a reliable Seiko VK63 meca-quartz movement. Manufactured by Seiko Instruments Inc. in Japan, this hybrid mechanical-quartz movement incorporates a mechanical module for chronograph function and quartz technology for other indication.
The ROUE TPS watch dial features centre hour& minutes hands, small seconds at 6 o’ clock, 24 hour indicator at 3 o’ clock, 60 minute counter at 9 o’ clock and chronograph centre second hand. Featuring a triple-layer design, the dial features Swiss Super luminous hour indexes and Tachymeter & Pulsometer scales.
The model has a round stainless steel case with circular brushing on top, horizontal on the sides and polished details on the sharp lug edges. With large chronograph pushers its measures are 40 mm in diameter, 13.4 mm thickness, and 48 mm lug to lug. It fits 20 mm wide straps.
The crystal is a double dome K1 mineral glass with anti-reflective treatment inside and sapphire coating outside. The screw-in case-back of the watch is embossed with a 3D art-work.
The ROUE TPS watch is available in three color-ways: TPS 1 (Black dial), TPS 2 (silver dial) and TPS3 (blue dial). Each timepiece is delivered with two straps: Genuine perforated Driver style leather and Sports silicone.
With the help of Easy interchangeable bands system, the straps can be swapped quickly. TPS 1 comes with a black leather strap and a black silicone strap. With TPS 2 & TPS 3, the brand offers a caramel leather strap + grey silicone strap.
Retail price of the ROUE TPS watch is approximately US$ 290.00. The ROUE TPS watch is limited to 1000 pieces and individually numbered.
