Pre-sale campaign: launching March 20th 2021 (17.00 gmt)
Delivery: during June 2021

Following the successful release and delivery of my previous models, I’m now excited to bring you my fourth timepiece: The DRZ 04 “Mondial”.The arrival of jet planes revolutionized the world of air travel, a Boeing 707 was able to travel from Paris to New York in eight hours with 180 passengers – twice as many as a propeller-driven Super Constellation, which took over 14 hours for the same journey. The DRZ 04 “Mondial” draws inspiration from this exciting time.

 

Dial:

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 dials come in either matt (white or meteorite) or sunburst fumé with applied indices. The calendar disc comes in a matching dial color. The 04 comes in a Meteorite limited edition option as well.

Bracelet:

The DRZ 04 “Mondial” features a 316L stainless steel integrated bracelet (all links are articulated). This bracelet is extremely comfortable. Of course, this watch is my personal homage to one of the greatest watch designers of all times: Gérald Genta, who designed iconic timepieces such as Patek Philippe’s Nautilus, or Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak.

There will be 5 variants, all with date positioned at 6 o’clock. 

– Grey with BGW9 Super-LumiNova

– Blue with BGW9 Super-LumiNova

– White with BGW9 Super-LumiNova

– Green with BGW9 Super-LumiNova

– Meteorite with BGW9 Super-LumiNova (limited to 40 units) name of the Meteorite : Muonionalusta.

Swiss Made:

Throughout the world the reputation of Swiss made watches is unrivalled. Know-how, impeccable quality, aesthetic prowess, technical innovation: the indication “Swiss made” reflects all this, and much more. Assembled in Switzerland, the DRZ 04 “Mondial” sports the Swiss automatic movement Sellita SW-200-1 and comes in Elaboré version with an Incabloc protection system, a high quality and accurate mechanism for three hands with 38 hours of power reserve and a 28’800 A/h (4 Hz) frequency. Aside from the assembly and quality control undertaken in our Swiss atelier, each watch is inspected personally by me before being dispatched, allowing a final check to be carried out on the movement’s precision and options.

    I think it would be better to improve it to quick release.

  • Gerard says:

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G design, great colors. Still, I think I might just fall for the grey variant. Now we’ve got more than spring to be looking forward to!

  • Raphaël says:

    Superb. I”ll be there on March 20th!

  • Pawel says:

    Oh my God… those are stunning! Sergio You out mastered Yourself!

  • Anthony says:

    Hi Sergio, I am loving my eclipse, will the new release take a deposit or is the full amount due on preorder?

  • Rod Moore says:

    Stunning watch! Love the design but I am torn between the grey and the white dials. Both are my favourites, so I now need to make a choice.

  • Sam K says:

    Blue or Green … 💙 Or 💚

  • Robert S says:

    Lovely watch and bracelet, but I prefer a fold-over clasp. Butterfly is fiddly and harder to adjust.

  • Oscar says:

    Really looking forward to these. Great Job Sergio. It’s going to be hard deciding on just one…

  • Carlos says:

    Great looking pieces!!

  • Wayne Ratliff says:

    That meteorite dial with red pops is calling to me loudly. That is beautiful – but, all the dial choices look great in this run. Very well done.

  • Mateusz says:

    It’s a shame there is no red/burgundy one.

  • Jon Sigurd Smith Johnsen says:

    Very beautiful!

  • Pawel says:

    Sergio, one question.

    Pre-sale will be on 20th or 21st? You have 2 different dates here – please correct it 🙂

  • James Ackner says:

    Looks great, I better start saving. Thanks

  • Larry Grupp says:

    I truly think this is a very beautiful timepiece. That said, I do not see any way to micro adjust the bracelet. not even any half links. Am I missing something, or is this the case?

  • Isaac Menda says:

    stunning

  • Jerry Harris says:

    While I was hoping you were cooking up a GMT, this looks very clean and appealing.
    I would have jumped on a blood red, since I went grey with the eclipse, but the green is probably calling my name.

  • Will the scratch resistance coating be applied on the bracelet too ?

  • Fabrizio says:

    Il meteorite è semplice spettacolare, complimenti ai designer… vorrei sapere quanto bisogna versare al momento della prevendita… grazie

    • sergio says:

      Cia Fabrizio!

  • EA says:

    How’s the lume?

  • Franck says:

    Amazing watch. Can’t wait to see a test video. I’ll be there on March 20. Price is VAT included or you have to add the fees ?

  • Edwin says:

    I am in again! 3 out of 4.
    Steady in top 3 favorite micro watch brands.
    EZA- Direnzo-Feynman.
    Keep going.

  • Imbiton says:

    Instead of spring break, I will buy a couple

  • Ian Masterton says:

    Hi Sergio, Are the hands and indices on the white dial variant outlined in black or chrome? Continuing best wishes, Ian.

  • Joab says:

    Lovely watch, you have outdone yourself again Sergio!
    I especially like the Eiffel Tower looking hands.
    Is it sapphire crystal for the display caseback also?
    Any lume shots to share?
    Looking forward to pre-ordering in March.

  • Adam C Hyde says:

    It’s a nice clean design, attractive. My only criticism of the last two DRZ03 watches I bought, is that the date window is too small and the lume is poor. Too bad the date window is the same size again. Missed opportunity not being a GMT watch considering the aviation inspiration. If it were GMT I would probably buy, but as is I won’t. Go with a Selita SW330 please…..

    • Jeroen says:

      Beautiful watch, but you make some valid points. A gmt would be great. The lume in the drz03 is indeed underwhelming. Especially considering it’s a diver. The date size is fine imo.

  • cem says:

    beautiful colors. I need volume discount:)

  • Darren lathrope says:

    Not got a Direnzo yet ,but this looks great .
    Now is my thinking time .
    Well done on a beautiful looking piece.

  • Mark Miller says:

    Just a beautiful design Sergio, all the variants are special, may have to purchase 2. Only concern is the bracelet clasp, not a fan of this style, with no micro-adjustments.

  • Edward Martin says:

    Wow! Absolutely love it, it’s like DRZ-2 and DRZ-3 had a gorgeous baby!
    Definitely see that unique Direnzo styling combined with some homage love, that meteorite version would look sweet! Beside my blood moon. 😍

  • Can i ask of you re planning to offer a no date for the Gray version and all others as well?

  • Rich Gibbs says:

    Lovely design Sergio I might just have to pull the trigger on a white dial version. Any chance of a leather strap? The aged tan strap shipped with the DRZ03 is fabulous. It would pair well with this watch.

  • Richa Gibbs says:

    I study Micro brands all the time and your DRZ03 is by far the best. In terms of aesthetics and design inspiration, it punches far above its price bracket.

  • Arsen Melikyan says:

    i want you watch like a millennial wants starbucks

  • Yong Geng Ma says:

    Great looking watches!

  • Gary Hobday says:

    Can’t wait!

  • Big D says:

    I wish that the meteorite version will have it all the way to the edge for 3D look. The rest of the colors do……. too hard to “bend” meteorite?

  • Geordon says:

    The white dial just seems to work so well with this design. Though, I am no fan of the butterfly clasp.

  • Chris says:

    Are planing one with no date?

  • Antonios Agiovlasitis says:

    Congratulations Sergio on another stunning timepiece release! You have managed to strike a balance between paying homage to Genta’s design while giving the piece a distinct peronality of its own, without going overboard on the styling. A true architect’s (arch-builder) piece of work!

  • Rob says:

    These are truly stunning once again. The dial shape and hands are really interesting and unusual.
    As others have commented it’s a shame there’s no red dial but they all look great.
    This one isn’t for me personally as I am put off by the integrated bracelet (makes it difficult to change-up the look) and the butterfly clasp (I find them uncomfortable and they remove the micro adjust).
    Here’s hoping the 05 comes in red with a milled folding clasp and a standard lug width 😉
    All the best.

  • Brian says:

    Beautiful! Would be awesome if you made a rubber strap available as well for those who aren’t able to get a perfect fit with the butterfly clasp.

  • Mac says:

    I’ve had a desire to get a watch with this case style for years. I was very excited when I saw a post about these on WatchUSeek. Unfortunately the butterfly clasp means no sale for you. Bracelets need adjustment. If the bracelet had a clasp with at least 3 rows of holes I would have ordered a white one yesterday.

  • Necati says:

    Such a great evolution on the DNA of the previous versions. I love the retro-futuristic hands and the bowl looks even more concave than the Eclipse (maybe because of the steel bezel?). All models look great, I’m tempted with the grey/meteorite dials (despite having the grey Eclipse). The blue one also looks stunning, like a mini-ocean on the wrist.

    I’m also on the fence regarding the clasp (I’ve got tiny, bony, and hairy wrists) but might gift one to my older brother (large and hairy wrists).

    PS: Sergio, is there any chance the DRZ 05 might come in a smaller shape? Asking for a hairy friend.

  • Bob Jones says:

    Very nice, probably will get the white dial.
    However, I’m not a fan of the red logo on the caseback crystal. I hope it will be removed and added to the rotor, or at least make it black or white.

  • Vladislav says:

    Hello, Sergio!
    I am a big fan of your designs and own two of your watches (DRZ 02 and DRZ 03). I have had thoughts for a while, that it was time for steel sports watch with an integrated bracelet. And here you are with your fourth watch, what a surprise 🙂
    I like the case of the new watch, but I must say there is something I dislike about the dial – hand shape combination. I am very sorry for my guess, but what if:
    – the dial was matt (not only white one) with some bold contrast colors
    -the hands were not skeletonized, but the same shape as on the DRZ02 – matt metal (I do like those F.P. Journe reminiscent hand the most)
    -and all the hour markers were of the same size.
    I can imagine that with this combination of very small changes the watch could have been even dressier and more outstanding.

    All the best and thank you for your great work!

  • Derrick Luck says:

    Let me know order date and How I am in

  • Ian Holyhead says:

    Hi Sergio, my son gave me an Eclipse gray for my birthday I’am very pleased, I have never heard of micro watch companies before, now I’ am inspired to have a small collection of wrist watches. Great designs thank you.

  • JP says:

    Great watch! Blue or grey for me, good that there is still don’t time for the decision…
    A more technical question: is the dial-pan made from one curved piece or is it a flat disc and an additional curved rehaut?
    Thanks!

  • Seth Zweig says:

    Hello Sergio 🙂 I love my 02 and 03, thank you very much!

    Will this model also be limited quantity or are you planning to make this one in perpetuity like the Type 250F?

    Thanks again – this looks lovely!

    • sergio says:

      Hi Seth!, well the 250F is a limited edition with serial numbers…just didnt sold as fast as the others mainly because it was my first watch. The 04 will be a small run but not limited edition (except for the meteorite version) so I’d be able at some point to produce more if needed.
      thanks!

  • Dirk says:

    Hi Sergio,

    Maybe a stupid question: Is the meteorite dial made of material out of a meteorite or what is the origin?

    • sergio says:

      Hello Dirk, no stupid question at all…it’s taken from a real meteorite. they ave a specefic patter: “Widmanstätten patterns, also known as Thomson structures, are figures of long nickel–iron crystals, found in the octahedrite iron meteorites and some pallasites. They consist of a fine interleaving of kamacite and taenite bands or ribbons called lamellae. Commonly, in gaps between the lamellae, a fine-grained mixture of kamacite and taenite called plessite can be found. Widmanstätten patterns describe features in modern steels,[1] titanium and zirconium alloys.”

  • antonio says:

    ciao, mi piace molto il green dial, credo che sarò presente il 20/03; come mai non hai pensato a produrre anche una versione senza datario? grazie

  • Edwin says:

    Sergio. I accidentally commented twice due to computer incident. Please disregard second. Was almost same.
    Keep safe
