RGM Adds Skeleton to its 801 Lineup



(USA, Mount Joy, PA) April 30, 2019 –

RGM introduces the PS-801-Skeleton

 The Caliber 801 was introduced in 2007 as RGM’s first in-house movement. Now, after more than a year in development, RGM introduces a classic skeleton version of its most famous movement.

 A solid gold plaque at the bottom of the dial divides the minute into thirds. The three arm second hand enables a clear view of the movement and the escapement. The different lengths of the arms of the second hand allow for easy reading of the seconds as they pass.

 All of the components of the movement are hand finished using traditional techniques. The matte grain finish and polished bevels (anglage) on the bridges and main plate require many hours by a skilled craftsman.

Inspiration was taken from skeleton watches from the early 20th century which were less ornate with clean lines and a functional aesthetic.

The watch is housed in a polished stainless steel Pennsylvania series case. With its large lugs and ribbed sides, the watch is architecture on the wrist. Like most of the components of the Caliber 801, the case is also made in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA, and finished by hand.
