Since 2009, Frederique Constant has collaborated with the Riva Historical Society: a Milan-based association founded in 1988, dedicated to the preservation and restoration of classic Riva boats. Piero Mario Gibellini and Carlos Riva founded this non-profit organization, whose purpose is to preserve the worldwide patrimony of the established Riva heritage.
Protected by a convex sapphire crystal, the navy-blue dial bears Frederique Constant’s classic hobnail pattern with a central guilloche which breaks up the dial. The Arabic numerals, indexes, and hands are completed with a luminous treatment. The final detail on the dial is the date window at 6 o’clock with a magnifying lens. Around the outer rim of the dial, the minutes are displayed.
Both the stainless steel and rose gold-plated Runabout models are exclusively limited to 2’888 pieces. Faithful to its tradition, each of the models are delivered in a special limited-edition box including a miniature wooden replica of the Riva boat. Paying tribute to the iconic designs of the elegant roaring twenties sports boats.
