Singapore based RZE Watches is back after a rebrand (they were some time ago known as Reise Watches, and we covered their first delivery here ) with their first jump watch assortment. The Endeavor is a characteristic emphasis on the subjects we found in the Resolute a year ago, which was pitched as an extreme, present day, titanium field watch. Something we preferred about the brand’s past contribution was their daring utilization of shading and a proudly contemporary flavor that doesn’t lean too vigorously on vintage watch subjects, and that is to a great extent persisted into this new assortment of jumpers. Let’s take a look.
initially, the Endeavor seems to have a comparable structure factor to the Resolute. The case is overwhelmed by sharp points and has the extreme, dim tone that we’ve come to expect with titanium instrument watches. Like the Resolute, the Endeavor has a “UltraHex” covering applied to the case, which RZE claims gives the watch a surface hardness that is multiple times more prominent than hardened steel and will keep the case essentially scratch free. The utilitarian appearance of the watch is coordinated by its development, the Seiko NH38A, which is as solid a workhorse as there is for a watch like this.
The case width of the Endeavor is a wearable 40.5mm with a drag to carry length of 46mm, and the thickness is up only one millimeter from the Resolute, and comes in at 12.5mm. Water opposition is normally up also, at an entire 200 meters, and you can time jumps, frozen pizzas, or just divert yourself during those interminable Zoom gatherings with the meager turning bezel that has been shading coordinated to the case.
We’re glad to see that RZE keeps on contribution their watches in an assortment of tones. Four dial variations will be accessible at dispatch: Polaris White, Pacific Blue, Frigate Gray, and Medallion Yellow. The Yellow specifically is very decent, and may be a pleasant ease substitute if you’re longing for the mustard Oyster Perpetual that dropped a year ago, however don’t want to follow through on well over rundown cost for the Crown’s passage level watch. Additionally important, the white dial is completely lumed. Notwithstanding the shading decision, all dials highlight two-tone lume and applied hour markers.
The new Endeavor assortment dispatches today, with conveyance expected in May. The retail cost is $459, yet during a restricted pre-request period RZE is offering the Endeavor at an initial cost of $359. For more data, look at RZE’s site here .
