The Captain epitomizes RUF’s privileged ties with the world of aviation and pays tribute to the pioneers of aviation and the epic story of flight.
Although the Captain was designed essentially for professional use, its combination of peerless functionality and rugged good looks has attracted a wider travelling public. As well as appreciating its ability to display navigational time readings, these travellers admire the robustness and versatile appearance that make the Captain eminently suitable for globetrotting and, indeed, for any occasion.
The Captain features a generous 42 mm diameter with a rotating bezel covered by sapphire glass, accentuating its presence on the wrist and enhancing the originality of its chronograph design.
The Captain dial features a distinctive black dial with a combination of large 2, 4, 8 and 10 numerals marking the hours and a prominent minute scale for navigational time readings. The crystal is made of virtually scratch-proof sapphire.
The Captain has 3 complications: 12 hour, 60 second and 30 minute.
