| RJ celebrates the winds and waves of Mykonos Geneva,|
Switzerland, June , 2019 – RJ has captured the essence of summer life
in the Greek isles in a 10-piece limited edition series from the ARRAW
Marine collection. These timepieces were inspired by the most iconic
symbols of Mykonos, from the blue of the Aegean Sea to the Greek
windmills and the mighty rocks that form the Cyclades island.
Each ARRAW Marine Mykonos special edition case, crafted in grade 5
titanium, comes adorned with the signature rubber RJ Bumpers™ that
define the ARRAW collection. The unique composite bezel combines
sand with a high-performance resin created in-house by RJ. The
unique sand-infused bezel is secured to the case with a metal grid
whose shape alludes to the iconic windmills of Mykonos.
Many stages of dial treatment are required to impart the ARRAW
Marine Mykonos with its lustrous Aegean blue effect, first sun-brushed, then galvanized, gradient-painted and then coated with a transparent
lacquer. This hue refers both to the color of the sea as well as the l
egendary blue of Mykonos. The chronograph counters have been
rhodium-plated to coordinate with the arrow-shaped, satin-finished
hands, so that the limited-editions remain faithful to the ARRAW
The RJ-2040 self-winding chronograph movement displays a
30-minute counter at 9 o’clock, a 12-hour counter with a date aperture
at 6 o’clock, and a small seconds counter at 3 o’clock. The transparent
sapphire crystal case back allows a fascinating look at the oscillating
weight, designed to reference the iconic windmills of Mykonos.
The ARRAW Marine Mykonos special edition comes with a blue
alligator strap that has been manually patinated to project the same
casual ease that characterizes life in the Greek isles. The underside of
the strap has been reinforced with a rubber insert for durability and
comfort. The special edition timepiece also comes with a black rubber
bracelet, ideal for swimming or water sports. Changing out the strap is
easily accomplished thanks to the interchangeable strap system. This
hallmark of the ARRAW collection allows the strap to be released and
an alternate strap installed with a simple ‘click’. “The ARRAW
Marine collection draws inspiration from the universe of the sea.
Naturally, the first limited-edition ARRAW Marine series takes that
maritime theme in a creative new direction. We chose to reinterpret
the familiar codes of the RJ ARRAW Marine family and infuse the
10-piece series with the exotic appeal of Mykonos, one of the most
breathtaking seaside destinations in the world.” said Marco Tedeschi,
CEO and Creative Director of RJ.
Only 10 ARRAW Marine Mykonos special edition watches will be
available throughout the world, sold exclusively in the Kessaris shops
in Mykonos and Nammos Beach. ABOUT RJ
