RSW, a brand known for atypical, futuristic and conceptual watches pays homage to its hometown of La Neuveville with one of three new watch collections at Baselworld 2012.
La Neuveville, the medieval city located on the shore of Lake Biel, is the home of RSW. To celebrate the city’s 700th anniversary in 2012, RSW introduces the city’s watch namesake, La Neuveville, a vintage-style dress watch featuring the RSW patented fold-out crank crown on the automatic model with an ETA 2824-2 movement and a traditional crown on the quartz-powered model with an ETA 955.112 movement. The case is available in steel or steel coated with yellow PVD. There are three dial variations: white, black and an exceptionally elegant sunray pattern in gray.
The newest model in the RSW High King collection, which features classic watch complications, is The Regulator. The hours and minutes are, of course, separate, as the complication dictates: a Roman-numeral counter at 12 o’clock tracks hours while the long minute hand stems from the central pivot. Different case and dial combinations are available. Each features the RSW patented fold-out crank system. The movement is an automatic RSW 1912 ETA based Dubois Dépraz 14070.
In the Urban Contemporary line, RSW takes its ultra-solid Diving Tool above ground with the Diving Tool Camo Limited Edition. Like every RSW Diving Tool, the watch retains its water resistance to 980 feet and has a screw-down crown. The movement is an automatic ETA 2824-2. The dial comes in two versions, Woodland (green) and Oceanic (blue) –- available in solid steel or in PVD-coated steel. Each combination is limited to 49 pieces. The watch comes packaged in a special case that includes a camo-style Swiss army knife and both a rubber and NATO strap.
