We already know that RALF TECH equips many Special Forces units throughout the world. But before the "operators" become operatives in their units, the majority of them go through prestigious military academies. Similarly, the new ACADÉMIE model is the entry point into the RALF TECH universe.
Military academy, police academy ... RALF TECH naturally dedicates this novelty to those who decide one day to risk their lives to protect our own. More traditional than its predecessors, easier to wear thanks to more accommodating dimensions, ACADÉMIE pays homage to the cadets and their instructors.
Aesthetically vintage, ACADÉMIE is both classic and timeless. Its round case shows a decidedly simple shape; fully polished or satin, the case is thin and adorned by slightly elongated lugs that ensure elegance of design and comfort to the wearer.
Equipped with an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve, ACADÉMIE is assembled in France in a Parisian workshop. "Made in France", again a first for RALF TECH.
ACADÉMIE remains faithful to its origins as a "scuba diving" instrument with a screw-down crown guaranteeing a real water resistance of 200 meters. Thus, still in the remits of a classic timepiece, ACADÉMIE is ultra functional and can be worn on a daily basis.
For its first edition, ACADÉMIE is available in 2 variants, polished or satin steel, and in 5 dial versions, with and without date window. Each finish is produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces. At last, ACADÉMIE comes in a precious pouch entirely made of vintage calf leather which includes an additional strap and a strap tool.
