RALF TECH The Beast Electric

The most powerful and exclusive of the RALF TECH watches is now available in an Electric version

This new series takes up the aesthetic codes of the Manufacture model. One of the most remarkable achievements of the model is to have succeeded in containing the thickness of THE BEAST to 17mm, a record considering the proposed pressure resistance. From its conception to its launch, everything has been thought out so that THE BEAST, thanks to its reasonable dimensions (47.7mm diameter) in view of its abilities, allows a daily use by professional divers and amateurs of fine watchmaking.

We also find the professional rotating bezel "Diamond Shape". Unidirectional, graduated over 60 minutes, it rotates in 120 clicks, which allows for exceptional time measurement finesse. This bezel is equipped with a matte ceramic insert, making it insensitive to scratches and abuse sometimes encountered in real working conditions under water. Finally, its shape, studied in cooperation with our professional divers, allows a perfect grip whatever the conditions of use. It thus makes the diver safe by allowing him to read the dive and decompression times with precision.

Different versions of this new THE BEAST are now available. The Ocean (blue), Tundra (green) or Original (black) dials will again be available on THE BEAST Electric. A model with a matt black beaded case is also new: THE BEAST Original Black Electric.

Like the Manufacture version, the new THE BEAST Electric is equipped with a "case back" with an integral "encapsulation" system. This system, inaugurated in 2019 on the WRX, is perfectly integrated into the back of THE BEAST. This innovation allows the back of the watch to be sealed to the case, guaranteeing optimal water resistance. This system also avoids the use of a helium valve for saturation dives, a system that weakens the cases.

In order to secure the maintenance of THE BEAST, only RALF TECH has the specific tools to open and close the case back of this new model, thus guaranteeing, revision after revision, the original water-resistance.

THE BEAST Electric is of course equipped with the recent RALF TECH electric movement. Developed in Switzerland for our company, this new movement works according to a micro hybridization system. It combines precision, reliability and energy savings. The RTE001 movement reduces the number of moving parts and simplifies the power supply to the quartz. Its autonomy can go up to 100,000 hours, i.e. almost 12 years, whereas most movements offer a power reserve of 40 hours for automatic watches and about 2 years for traditional quartz watches.

Tested water-resistant to more than 3,000 meters (like the Manufacture Automatic version), these new models reinforce RALF TECH's position in the race for extreme depths, since, as a reminder, THE BEAST Manufacture is one of the 3 deepest serial watches in the world. Assembled in France, completing the Manufacture version, the new THE BEAST Electric should logically become the essential reference of "Tool Watches" for adventure professionals, whether military or civilian. Their performance and design should finally seduce those who are passionate about alternative watchmaking.

The brand

In 1996, professional diver Frank Huyghe created the RALF TECH brand: diving suits, buoyancy compensators, regulators, masks, etc. In 2003, on the strength of his personal experience, he designed a watch that could withstand the enormous pressures of the ocean depths and beat the World Record of deep diving. This was the RALF TECH WR1.
