Bronze Vanguard Russia Limited Edition 3

The RLE3 represents the third iteration of the Russia Limited Edition made by Gruppo Gamma for AP Time Ltd. (also known as Gruppo Gamma Russia and Mi-Watch).

This time the watch has been co-designed with the support of our friends and clients. In fact the blue sunburst dial is a tribute to the first RLE launched back in 2016 and marine grade CuSn8 bronze has been chosen as the case material to meet the strong demand for bronze watches. Both the watch and the buckle will be delivered to you sealed so you can start your own patina journey.

The caseback is made of stainless steel and has engraved one of the symbols of Saint Petersburg, the pinnacle from the Admiralty building, which complements ideally the maritime theme of the model and the first RLE (that had the Kremlin). Moreover, we have recently started selling our watches at the Submarina Boutique in the historical center of Saint Petersburg.

Most Gruppo Gamma long-time fans will recognize the sandwich supernova dial, seen previously on Genesis and Ascent models. This time it will have a Swiss vintage ecru lume, which is vintage only in terms of look, as the brightness is very strong.

We designed a complete collection of straps for the RLE3 with our good friend, Brusnitcyn, a well-known artisan from Saint Petersburg that has made straps for our previous LEs. One strap will be included with the watch and you will have the possibility to choose and order additional straps that will be made to measure exclusively for you (any width/length, stitching, initials, etc). For the first time ever for a Gruppo Gamma you will be able to get a bund strap made to measure for the RLE3 (and compatible with many other models too).
