Watch time New York 2022 returns to Gotham Hall in midtown Manhattan for the seventh time this fall from October 21-23. An impressive lineup of more than 30 participating watch brands includes the American watchmaker RGMCelebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
As part of the horological event, the esteemed American maker will showcase its latest Model 25 depicts USS Constitution leaving Malta in 1804. The watch is a unique limited edition piece that uses exceptional materials to honor the brand’s rich history as well as the long naval association between Malta, the United States and Great Britain.
The new Model 25 features a 40mm steel case with ribbed sides and a contoured bezel. The case is US-made and features a design inspired by the RGM Pennsylvania series. Through its simplicity, the case is designed to showcase the decorative dial that is the real story-telling part behind the watch.
True to the model’s name, the art on the dial depicts the USS Constitution’s departure from the naval dockyard in Malta during the Tripolitanian War, when the ship was granted permission by the Royal Navy to use Malta as a base. In particular, the artwork uses the wood marquetry technique, which is often used on furniture and finely detailed wooden objects. The technology is relatively new for its use in the modern world of watchmaking and this is the second example from RGM.
Impressive from its exterior, the Model 25 opts for the RGM modified Caliber 1120 to power its timekeeping. The movement has a 42-hour power reserve, with its attractive rotor and fine finish visible through the sapphire exhibition case back.
The new RGM Model 25 depicting the USS Constitution leaving Malta in 1804 is limited to a production of 3 pieces, each retailing for $13,900.
