In the R-27, one of the strongest structures of nature, hexagon, is now forged into a distinctive shape of a valiant watch.
Design of the R-27 is clean and robust, and regardless of its substantial looks, the watch is reasonably sized; the smallest transverse distance of hexagon is only 41mm, thickness is 11.1mm, and lug-to-lug distance is 48mm. Watch weighs 89 grams without the strap.
The case of the R-27 is constructed of industry standard Stainless Steel 316L, and lugs are attached to the case with M1.6 machine screws. Along the lines of robust design, flimsy spring bars are rejected, the strap is instead attached with sturdy M1.6 machine screws.
Flat, distortion free mineral glass crystal is 1.3mm thick, and underneath it sits an engaging 3-dimensional dial with its uncluttered two layer steel design. Another eye-catching feature of the dial is mesmerizing ”Deepest Black” center - strongly light absorbing plate, treated with the world's blackest paint, absorbing 99.4 % of the light. In any lighting conditions less than perfect, the center of the dial appears to exist without any texture or surface, like a black hole.
Back of the watch offers a captivating view to a ticking movement through 1.3mm thick flat mineral glass crystal. The R-27 can house Miyota 9015, ETA2892-A2 or Sellita SW-300 movements.
