The new Model 600 Chronograph from RGM Watch Co. takes inspiration from military and pilot chronographs of the 1960s and ‘70s. Dressed in a 42mm diameter stainless steel case, this timepiece houses a customized Valjoux 7753 automatic movement.
The matte black dial’s military aesthetic makes it easy to read; the time and chronograph functions are legible with a simple glance.
Each detail was carefully crafted to reflect the appeal of vintage military watches, including the general layout, and replicating numerical fonts to achieve a bona fide military chronograph look. The dial and hands feature X1 Super-LumiNova for low-light visibility.
To maintain the vintage appeal of this timepiece, the brand has omitted date indication on the dial and transparent case back.
The M-600 is RGM’s first production model with a box-style raised sapphire crystal, bolstering the classic design element and allowing for a slimmer profile.
