For all MELKUS sports car owners, C.H.WOLF offers the exclusive possibility to get the personal chassis number of their car engraved in the case. This makes your Racing RS 1000 MELKUS a unique and absolutely individual companion - whether for special occasions and trips with your jewelry or for the special in the everyday life.


The design of this high-quality mechanical watch is a tribute to the original Melkus RS 1000, with which Heinz Melkus wrote motorsport history in the 1970s. The black dial with its three pointers for hour, minute and second in a striking tacho-needle shape is reminiscent of the control elements of the display board in the cockpit. The pointers as well as the indices are provided with a light coating and guarantee excellent readability even in the dark. In addition, the hour and minute pointer are lacquered signal red.


This red is also found in a fine red frame of the dial as well as in the decorative seam of the bracelet. This is completely made from the original reference material of the dashboards of the historic RS 1000. The characteristic look is rounded off by the winding crown in authentic fuel cap form and the "MELKUS RS 1000" lettering on 9 o'clock on the dial.


Inside the 45-millimeter stainless steel case works the usual reliable hand-lift caliber Alpha CHW 306, which provides a 46-hour power reserve. The entire work is fine-crafted by hand in the C.H.WOLF-Atelier in Glashütte and the Glashütte typical three quarter plate is refined with a characteristic C.H.WOLF waffle pattern. Rhodium-plated Chatons, which hold the fine Rubin jewels, as well as precious sunray-brushed crown wheel and ratched wheel complete the technical look.


The Racing RS 1000 MELKUS is limited to 130 pieces and available from now until the end of this year with preemption right for MELKUS owners - on request with the engraved vehicle number - at a price of 3.750 € online or in the C.H.WOLF-Atelier in Glashütte.
