Apollo 11 spacecraft successfully landed the first men on the moon on 1969 . Six hours after landing, Armstrong’s first-ever step onto the lunar surface became a legend worldwide. Just 50 years later (1969–2019), to celebrate this major milestone in mankind, RJ is launching its first watch made by materials from the very surface of the moon – the ARRAW 6919.
ARRAW 6919 is both highly horological and aesthetically rich. The SW-280 mechanical self-winding movement has been modified by RJ engineers to accommodate the patented RJ Moon Phase mechanism that shows a 3D moon rotating 360° during a complete cycle of 29.5 days. The hour and minute indications at the center of the movement also indicate the location of the earth. All settings (time, moon indication, date) are done via the crown. The date set at 3 o’clock can be read with +4/–4 when the moon is between the gibbous moon and the first crescent.
The bezel is made with super light and hard composite material combining a high-performance acrylic glass and parts from the Apollo 11 spacecraft. This first ever material created by RJ is fixed to the case by a metal grid, inspired by the Apollo 11 command module. The result is so natural and harmonious that it appears as if it were meant to be. The ARRAW 6919 is available in three different materials: polished and satin-brushed grade 5 titanium, ceramic and 5N+ red gold. The watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters or 330 feet.Each edition is exclusively limited to 100 pieces.
