RSW Chasseral Mechanical Watch

RSW Chasseral Mechanical Watch
Chasseral - one of the highest summits in the south of the Swiss Jura - stands guard over a uniquely beautiful region of mountains and lakes, at the heart of the famous "Watch Valley". In winter, gusts of wind sweep through this land, sculpting the snow into pure forms. These same crisp, clean lines have permeated the Chasseral watch, RSW's ode to the region where it first saw daylight, exactly a century ago. An authentic guardian of Swiss tradition, this new timepiece captures the light that floods its surfaces in a subtle alternation of mat brushed finishes and shiny polished finishes.
