Welcome to Direnzo Watches, where timeless elegance meets retro-futuristic innovation. We are thrilled to announce the relaunch of the stunning DRZ 02R Aerolite (R stands for reduced). Building upon the success of our iconic DRZ 02, this reimagined model combines a smaller form factor with a striking metal bracelet, resulting in a timepiece that exudes sophistication and versatility.

For this new release, we’ll be offering most of the colors from 2023, plus a new red variant and a new Limited Edition with an incredible sandblast finish.

Practicality and functionality are key aspects of the DRZ 02R Aerolite. The SuperLuminova on the crown ensures optimal visibility in low-light conditions, while the precise automatic movement guarantees accurate timekeeping and exceptional durability. This fusion of vintage-inspired design and modern features creates a timepiece that is as reliable as it is visually captivating.

The most outstanding feature of the case is its elliptical elevation, a design element that pays homage to the sleek lines of vintage Bugatti automobiles. This unique shape accentuates the watch’s edges with polished fillets, showcasing meticulous attention to detail. Furthermore, the countercurve at the transversal section generates intriguing shadow play, adding depth and dimension to the timepiece.

Join us on this horological journey as we unveil the DRZ 02R Aerolite, a tribute to the past, designed for the present, and destined to become a cherished heirloom of the future.

The dial’s bowl shape was first introduced with the DRZ 02 back in 2018. This type of dial helps to create a seamless continuity between dial and case, it also creates a deep sense of depth and 3D effect on the whole watch. This kind of dial manufacture requires a CNC modelling process, unlike that used to produce a more conventional and simpler flat disc.


The DRZ 02R “Aerolite” features a 316L stainless steel bracelet. This bracelet is extremely comfortable. Your DRZ 02R will come with included half links and an optional folding clasp with 5 microadjustments and the proper endlinks so you can swap the butterfly easily in case you prefer to use your 02R that way. The extra clasp will come with the scratch resistant coating as well (and of course engraved logo)
