RZE’s First Chronograph Watch Was Inspired By ’70s Wedge Supercars

Watch microbrand RZE has quickly established a loyal following thanks to their ultra-tough titanium tool watches. The brand first released the Resolute field watch in 2020 and followed it up with the Endeavour diver in 2021. Now, RZE is releasing their first chronograph with the Valour, and it’s just as rough and ready as you’d expect.

Like all RZE watches, the Valour’s case is in titanium that’s been treated with the brand’s proprietary ULTRAHEX anti-scratch coating that makes it 8x harder than stainless steel while maintaining titanium’s inherent lightness and strength. The Valour has an angular case that was inspired by the wedge-shaped supercars of the ‘70s and ‘80s, with slick and uncommon integrated pushers that seamlessly blend into the design. Powering the watch is an SII VK64 meca-quartz movement from Seiko, which combines quartz timekeeping with a mechanical chronograph module for a tactile feel and a smooth sweep. The watch has an impressive 200m water resistance and is sold on a high-quality FKM rubber strap similar to what you’d get from certain luxury watches. Three variants exist at launch: A panda version with blue highlights, a vintage-inspired salmon dial, and a blacked-out “GT” edition with orange accents. The Valour will go on sale on July 31 at RZE’s website, and you can sign up for the waitlist now for early access.
