Today is the 1-year anniversary reveal of the RGM Model 151-PR “Professional Pilot.” The following describes the watch in the press release:
This new model has a very technical but traditional pilot style dial with large Super-Luminova numbers for low light visibility. Two versions are available: one with a date window at 3 o’clock and a more period look without a date. The dial displays hours 1 thru 12 and the minutes 5 thru 60. The dial and second hand have red accents which blend nicely with the classic rhodium finished sword style hands.
A prominent element of all 151 models is the American-made stainless steel case, or option titanium case. Each case part is cut from a solid block of 316L surgical stainless steel or aircraft quality titanium. The 151-PR is a functional, technical and aesthetically pleasing pilot watch which fits very comfortably on the wrist. It is a welcome addition to the RGM 151 lineup of technical Pilot watches.
Watchmaker and owner of RGM Watch Company Roland Murphy had this to say about the success of the watch. “Our 151 models sell well, and it is often split between models. The 151-PR gives another look that is a bit dresser with the rhodium hands. The character of the watch changes a lot with a dial and hand change. If you look at all our 151 models they all have a classic pilot feel but they express it in a different way.”
As time ticks on WatchNews looks forward to celebrating more anniversaries with Mr. Murphy and RGM Watch Company.
