The RZE X Fratello Resolute Pro ‘Contour’ Limited Edition

The fine folks at Fratello Watches have just released their latest limited edition, and it’s the most affordable one yet. For this collab, the Dutch publication has worked with RZE to create the RZE x Fratello Resolute Pro Contour, a tool watch designed for adventure. Founded in 2020, RZE has become known for its titanium tool watches, so it’s collaborated with Fratello to create a watch fit for adventure. The RZE x Fratello Resolute Contour Pro features a grade 2 titanium case measuring 40mm x 10.5mm (46mm lug-to-lug). These measurements include the flat, AR-coated crystal. The lugs slope slightly down and have drilled lugs (swoon) for easy strap-changing. The Resolute Contour Pro comes on a titanium bracelet with no-tool micro-adjust www.highluxurystore.ru .

The dial is made of carbon, but it’s infused with a steel powder that creates a cool pattern that kind of looks like a topography map. It’s a theme that matches the engraved caseback. Inside is the Miyota 90S5 movement, the well-known automatic Japanese caliber with hacking seconds and a 42-hour power reserve that beats at 4 Hz.

Pre-orders for the RZE x Fratello Resolute Pro Contour begin on Fratello’s site on Thursday, March 14 at 10 AM ET and will stay open for one week. MSRP: €679 (for us Stateside, the EUR price will auto-convert to dollars at the time of pre-order). What’s not to love about an adventure-driven tool watch for under 1,000 bucks from a friendly enthusiast publication? Let’s tick off the things we like about this watch: a well-sized and wearable titanium case, drilled lugs, closed caseback, composite carbon dial, and no-tool micro-adjust. I could go on, but you get the point. It’s all the little details that enthusiasts ask for and love, delivered in an affordable, Miyota-powered package in collaboration with an upstart brand. The carbon dial, with those flecks of steel deposited throughout, gives the Contour a real character that stands apart from competitors and from the rest of RZE’s catalog www.highluxurystore.ru .

It’s a “limited edition,” but pre-order is open for a week beginning March 14, so there’s plenty of time to run over to Fratello and get your hands on the RZE x Fratello Resolute Pro Contour www.highluxurystore.ru.
