RJ, the Geneva-based Swiss watchmaker, proudly presents ARRAW, its first Horology collection, adding to its portfolio of RJ Collaboration and RJ DNA watches. The ARRAW collection which also happens to be the brand’s first core collection is available for both men and women as a range of cutting-edge chronograph watches. It embodies RJ’s passion and commitment to true sophistication and distinctiveness.

RJ design elements originate from four different universes – Marine, Earth, Air and Space. This year, the ARRAW collection is inspired by the Marine universe with every watch possessing anchor-shaped indexes, lugs reminiscent of the screws on a ship and, on the back of the watch, a helix shell engraving.

The ARRAW collection is available in two sizes: 42mm and 45mm cases made from a range of materials including titanium, black ceramic and 5N+ red gold. The sleek case is the base for four iconic bumpers – a key element of RJ’s design DNA – in rubber which match composite elements ornamenting the polished and satin-finished lugs. The case is completed with push-buttons inspired by pistons from a ship’s engine room as well as a screwed-in crown guaranteeing water resistance to a depth of 100 meters.

ARRAW dials are sun-brushed, galvanized and gradient-painted, before being coated with transparent lacquer to provide a true depth to the finishing. The chronograph’s galvanic black counters are integrated into the dial and are surrounded by circular displays that complement the satin-finished and arrow-shaped hands.

The self-winding RJ-2040 chronograph movement displays a ‘30 minutes’ counter at 9 o’clock, a ‘12 hours’ counter and a date aperture at 6 o’clock, and a small second counter at 3 o’clock.

Another hallmark of the ARRAW collection is the interchangeable strap system that allows the strap to be released with a simple ‘click’ by pushing simultaneously on the two lug screws. On the clasp, a lever releases the strap from the deployment buckle without having to resort to any tools. A wide range of interchangeable rubber and alligator straps will be launched with the first models of the collection.

RJ’s CEO, Marco Tedeschi, commented: “I am proud to present ARRAW, RJ’s first core collection. ARRAW watches are a true modernisation of the RJ design philosophy and constitute the foundation for further development as we integrate our own manufacture movements. ARRAW will enable us to bring our DNA and Collaboration concepts to the next level.”
