Off the Cuff: RZE Ascentus GMT

Watchmakers around the world must be anticipating a lot of travel in 2023, if the sudden proliferation of new and affordable GMTs is any indication. Seiko may well have gotten the ball rolling with their 5 Sports SSK line, but following hard upon we have seen GMTs from YEMA, Formex, Jack Mason, Nodus, Maen, Serica and Monta. Not to be outdone, RZE is the latest to throw its hat into the ring with the all-new Acsentus GMT, available for preorder today.

Off the Cuff: RZE Valour

RZE may not need an introduction although the brand is barely over two years old. It has made a name for itself as soon as it released its first model, the Resolute, a rugged full-titanium field watch with great specifications and an attractive price tag. Following the success of the Resolute, RZE released the Endeavour, another full-titanium watch--this time designed to take on the underwater world. In 2021, the brand released its third model, again in titanium but this time aiming for the race tracks with their Valour meca-quartz chronograph, which we’re taking a look at here. 

Off the Cuff: RZE Resolute 2022

Almost a year ago to the day, I received my first look at the RZE Resolute--the brand's popular titanium field watch. Just last week I received its successor--the Resolute 2022. Clearly born from the same DNA, the all-new Resolute is still an ultra-durable field watch wrought from titanium and 8 times harder than 316L stainless steel. It's light weight and fashioned for exploration. Like a fighter, it's been training in the off-season and is back--slim, trim and prepared to take a beating.
