The Renato Watches brand has been around for about eight years, but now, under the leadership of SLB LLC, the brand progresses to the Renato Master Horologe Swiss-made collection. For those who know this industry well, the brand was co-founded and is designed by Daniel Mink—no newcomer to the business. In fact, back in the 1980s Mink was behind the Daniel Mink watch line (including the then-innovative wood watches). The goal with the new line is to offer function and Swiss-made timepieces at more affordable prices.
Among the newest pieces is the Renato Master Horologe XTR Diver, which features a registered design, big date function, and water-resistant case to 10ATM. Underwater legibility is enhanced by the dial’s large, luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers—all protected by a sapphire crystal. The Renato Master Horologe XTR Diver is created in a limited edition of 100 pieces, each retailing for $695. A few other new watches are still under wraps, but we will be unveiling them on ATimelyPerspective.com soon.
