The first of their kind, rvnDSGN timepieces are manufactured using the latest in 3d printing technology. This process allows rvnDSGN to design parts that could not otherwise be made by conventional manufacturing processes. It begins with a bed of fine titanium powder, a laser then fuses the powder layer by layer until the final form is revealed. The sintering process leaves a subtle texture to the surface of the case telling the story of its manufacture. This texture can vary from a medium to dark gray, with a fine to medium texture; each piece is unique.
rvnDSGN has partnered with the venerable Worn & Wound to supply their straps. Their American leather nato style strap is rugged yet casual and perfectly complements the series:1 line. the 20mm straps are designed and made in New York City and come in two colors; the slightly pebbled graphite nubuck is complemented with matte silver hardware, the gold nubuck uses contrasting black hardware, and the smooth brick nubuck also uses matte silver hardware. a modern take on a classic style.
