Renato Watches Launches Master Horologe Swiss Made Collection Written byWatchTimeMarch 28, 2013 After seven years in business, Renato Watches, a brand known chiefly for modestly priced timepieces sold on ShopNBC, is stepping into the higher-end, Swiss-made watch arena with the introduction of the Renato Master Horologe Swiss Made collection. The line will offer watches with complications at affordable prices, with each watch being produced as a limited edition of 99 pieces. Headlining the new collection is the Renato Master Horologe Mostro MKII. The hexagonal case, in 316L stainless steel, houses a multi-layered dial, highlighted by a big date at 1 o’clock and a retrograde day indication with a small hand pointing to the day of the week, inscribed on lines radiating from the center of the subdial at 12 o’clock, which snaps back to Monday after reaching midnight Sunday. The lower half of the dial has a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock and two diamond accents on either side. The Mostro MKII is powered by a Swiss-made quartz movement, and also features Swiss-developed PVD plating on the case. The limited-edition watch is available in a variety of PVD finishes and retails for $1,495. More versions of the Mostro can be seen on www.renatowatches.com.
