the "RM3" is now shipping!!!
Continuing the Rista Marka line we present to you the Rista Marka III aka “RM3”
The “Rista Marka”,
Inspired by a number of classic and modern styles, bits and pieces from automatic and manual wind pilot watches and divers to extravagant luxury timepieces. We call this beautifully engraved model the "Rista Marka", named from Old Norse language meaning Marked Beauty or Beauty Mark as we prefer.
This time around we have not only been inspired by the above, we brought them all together to create the "RM3".
The Movement: ST1901
The manual wind movement is rich in history and contains an integrated chronograph. The ST1901 chronograph complication is incorporated into the primary timekeeping mechanism It's the traditional method of movement construction, but it's also trickier. An integrated chronograph calibre is simpler to maintain and service because it works as a single unit.
The column wheel on the ST1901 is more labor intensive to construct than the alternative cam actuated approach and calls for extremely exact tolerances. But its main benefit is that it enables a smooth chronograph action.
The Case back:
While sticking to the Rista Marka theme and although this timepiece is a Manual Wind movement, we have kept the "AUTOMATIC" lettering around the case back and we have a beautifully engraved pattern directly around the exhibition glass as to keep the beauty of the movement as the main center piece and the star of the show.
Continuing on the Rista Marka tradition, we have the all to familiar white dial with logo printed at the 12 O’ clock position and RM3 hovering above the 6 O’clock lume plot. With lume plots sitting at 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 11 the 3 and 9 O’clock positions house the two black sub dials for the chrono functions.
