Rue Watches

When we look for new timepieces for our wrists here at Coolector HQ, we typically gravitate towards those with a minimalistic design aesthetic and that’s certainly something that makes these superb looking Rue Watches appeal to our sensibilities. They are the brainchild of Christian Rue, who is the founder of Rue Watches, who looked back in time for his inspiration. His French ancestors carried the Rue name with them to Britain and took pride in its meaning. In French, Rue is the word for street, but it symbolises so much more; from the starting point to the final destination, it’s all about the journey.

Rue Watches are understated in their design and this gives them a compelling air of elegance and sophistication that we’re big fans of here at The Coolector. These stylish timepieces our designed in the UK alongside Swiss manufacturing partners so the quality is unquestionable and they look fantastic on the wrist to boot. Their first edition is limited to just 95 pieces and cost between £299 and £349 depending if you want an additional Milanese strap with your watch and you can get 5% off with the code COOL5.

Road to Success

The first edition watch from Rue uses nothing but the best materials and high quality craftsmanship, and this includes 316L stainless steel, sapphire crystal glass, and Swiss movements; which have been carefully assembled by Swiss artisans. One of the most distinctive design features of this top class timepiece, and something which feature on all future Rue watches, is their iconic traffic red dot on the end of the second hand. This reminds Rue wearers of the importance to stop, rest, and recharge along the way.

Designed in Britain, made in Switzerland, there is a real sense of quality flowing through the stylish looking Rue Watches and the fact that you can one on your wrist for under £300 is the real icing on the cake – just remember there will only be 95 being made available with their first edition so be sure to move quickly if you want to secure one of your own. With excellent features from top to bottom which includes a gold plated Swiss Made ETA F05.111 movement and a 55 mAh battery which will last up to 94 months before it needs replacing.

If you like elegant, minimalistic timepieces, these Rue Watches are sure to tick all of the right boxes for you as they do for us here at the Coolector. The case is 40mm diameter, with 9mm depth and the glass is double curved sapphire crystal for great strength and scratch resistance. Eye catching midnight black hour/minute hands with luminous inserts, second hand with signature red dot finish off the look of these uber-cool watches and for anyone after an affordable and well-crafted watch in 2019 need look no further.

Understated Excellence

We love discovering new watch brands here at The Coolector and if you love minimalistic lines and a clean aesthetic, you’ll get all this and more with the majestic looking timepieces from Rue. These supremely sophisticated watches have certainly caught our eye and this flagship launch is exclusive in nature with less than 100 being made available to purchase. Quality components and intelligent design combine to make these a great investment for anyone after an affordable, impeccably crafted watch for their wrist.

Rue Watches are brand new to the world of horology but if their flagship launch is anything to go by, they will be around for many years to come. Infinitely cool and with the sort of streamlined aesthetic that we’re huge fans of at The Coolector, we’re in no doubt that Rue Watches will sell out of their debut collection of timepieces in double quick time.
