RJ's new Marine Mykonos watch is inspired by the Greek isles
June 12, 2019: Swiss luxury watchmaking brand 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. This hue refers both to the color of the sea as well as the legendary 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 Marine family.
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.
Only 10 ARRAW Marine Mykonos special edition watches will be available throughout the world, sold exclusively at Kessaris in Mykonos and Nammos Beach.
