RGM 801 Replica Corps of Engineers Watch


Truth to be told, my insight is restricted with respect to American watch brands. Obviously I know the huge brands, some of their breakthroughs maybe some more in subtle element, yet that is essentially it. Not that I am not inspired by them, but rather since I live and work in Europe and am being “secured” in Swiss and German observes here, there are very few events I can use to find out about them. In addition, their accessibility here in replica watches Europe is exceptionally constrained. Extremely constrained. I assume that our donor Michael Stockton, who really has its attaches near to the American watch making zone (close RGM) in Pennsylvania, will do an inside and out article on American watches and its industry sometime in the future, to educate our European perusers all the more about it (or possibly me).

As indicated by RGM, the United States joined “The Great War” on April 6th 1917 and sent over their US Army Corps of Engineers to offer assistance. They swiss replica watches  realized with them 1000 American-made Hamilton railroad watches (receiving the General Railroad Timepiece Standards of 1893). Simple winding, readability and precision (inside 30 seconds every week deviation).

You have to know that “The Great War” is better known as World War I at this side of the pond. A dirty war, that went on from 1914 till 1918. Dirty as industrialization and new technologies resulted in the slaughter of millions of people. Who doesn’t know the historical movies in black and white with soldiers in trenches looking scared or grabbing for their gas masks. Tanks, submarines, machine guns, chemicals and military planes were developed and produced in rapid tempo on both sides.

However, it was also this First World War that “made” the wrist watch. Although it was already a bit more common for ladies to wear their watches on the wrist with a small bracelet, for men there were still mainly pocket watches. Being in combat meant to had to use both hands, especially in those dangerous trenches. In those days, wrist watches were merely pocket watches with soldered lugs and a thin leather strap around your wrist. This way, you could read the time without having to put your rifle away for a moment.

Like I wrote in the presentation of this article, I require some getting up to speed to do with America’s history in watchmaking. Notwithstanding, what gets to be clear is the measure of pride that RGM puts into their watches. Further more, the development has 19 gems, 18,000bph, either Rhodium or gold plated, roundabout Damaskeening, perlage and anglage. RGM bore 801 has a 40-44 hour force save.

RGM utilized the Grand Feu (“Great Fire”) system to deliver these white dials for their 801 Corps of Engineers timepiece. White powdered glass is connected to a metal plate and warmed to high temperatures. Thusly, the connected fake watches powder will soften and will transform into this new smooth surface. Utilizing the Grand Feu strategy, to a great degree high temperatures are utilized when including layer after layer of lacquer to get the best results. Most dire outcome imaginable is that amid this methodology of re-terminating the veneer layers, breaks or undesirable softening begin to show up.

With a measurement of 42mm, the RGM 801 Corps of Engineers is an exceptionally wearable look throughout today’s benchmarks. The good thing is that it is just 10mm in tallness, so it will really wear like a rich timepiece. The watch is either cheap replica watches being conveyed on a decent cocoa Tuscan calf strap ($9,700.- USD) or a stainless steel armlet ($10,450.- USD).
