Known for their original designs and daring appeal, Wryst watches represent a new benchmark in the contemporary watchmaking. The brand has been acclaimed for its commitment in bringing in novel materials and innovative designs in the industry. Some of its key innovations include the introduction of 516L grade stainless steel for manufacturing of timepieces where as majority of the watch brands use 316L. The design of these wristwatches is mainly futuristic with some touches of traditional horology.
Like it counterparts from Wryst, the new Racer Automatic watch is made of 516L stainless steel. This timepiece has a diameter of 50mm, making it one of the imposing Mens luxury watches available in the market. Although an extra-large mechanical watch, this creation offers optimum comfort around the wrists thanks to its ergonomic design features.
The Racer watch is equipped with the well-acclaimed Sellita SW200-1 Swiss made automatic movement. This self-winding calibre has a beat rate of 28,800 vpz (4Hz) and provides a power reserve up to 38 hours when fully wound. It powers the hour, minute and center seconds hands as well as the date at 3 o’ clock. This workhorse calibre also offers Hacking Seconds, Quickset Date and Hand-winding functions.
In addition to its quickly identifiable exterior architecture, the Racer automatic timepiece incorporates several automobile-inspired elements. For example, the intricate multi-layer dial includes designs inspired from vehicle engines, gears and pinions, steering wheels, analogue dashboard indicators, seat-belt buckles, air vents and etc. The strap attachment system, which ensures seamless fitment of the strap, is shaped after the camshafts used in internal combustion engines of the automobile vehicles.
In addition to these striking features, the new Wryst Automatic SX4 Racer variant highlights a vivid red tone that has been associated with motor racing since long time. The Racing Red is the official color representing the Italian teams participating in the international motor racing events. This shade is traditionally called Rosso corsa in Italian language. It is also the preferred color of world-renowned supercar brands like Ferrari and Alfa Romeo.
The innovative, double injection silicone bracelet of the timepiece boasts a vivid red tone with black border lines. Usually, the dial of the Racer automatic watch possesses an industrial look with a neutral color theme, but the slight touches of red add some vibrancy to this new model. This distinctive color scheme makes the new variant a stand-out member in the brand’s popular Mens luxury watches collection.
The spare strap provided with this specific variant also merits considerable attention. Made of high-quality leather, this Formula 1 racing inspired strap features a carbon fiber motif on its surface. It also features dual-stitching with red and white threads as well as red colored sides.
Meticulously crafted by employing ultra-modern CNC machines, the barrel-shaped body of the watch maintains a curvy silhouette inspired by the shapes of high-performance sports cars. This new wristwatch is a perfect union of the ‘Design Meets Function’ principle. For example, the curved side contours of the case not only provide these Mens luxury watches a distinct aesthetic style; they also protect the crown from physical damages.
Protecting the dial side is a domed sapphire crystal glass. Virtually scratch-proof, this glass ensures the unobstructed view of the dial details. For night time readability, the hands and hour-markers employ Luminova coating. Through a smoked transparent case back window, the movement can be observed. Equipped with a screwed-down crown, this Wryst Automatic SX4 Racer model has a water resistance of 100 meters.
