Richtenburg is best known for its big collection of classically designed models. All of them are available in a large variety of colours and styles attending to every taste. One of the most popular models in the current collection is the Fastpace, which comes as no surprise. With its sleek exterior and powered by an automatic movement, this wristwatch stands out.
The Richtenburg Fastpace offers a whole variety of different functions. These include a day, month and 24-hour display as well as a date window. They are arranged on the dial as follows: At 9 o’clock is the subdial for the day, at 3 o’clock is the subdial for the month and at 6 o’clock is the 24-hour display. The latter also has a built-in day/night indicator. Richtenburg has placed the date window at the 4.30 o’clock position. Hours, minutes and seconds are traditionally indicated by central hands and with the help of large Roman numerals. The numerals do not harm the legibility of the watch overall, but they do cause some crowding on the dial. Smaller numerals or perhaps a switch to indexes would probably not have harmed the face of this watch. Keeping the date window on the smaller side and using a cyclops lens in the glass above it complements the design beautifully.
In order to guarantee good legibility even at night, the hands are equipped with a generous amount of lume.
The stainless steel case has a diameter of 42 mm, which is almost a moderate size for a modern men’s watch. This should make the Fastpace suitable for really any wrist. Inside the watch works a powerful automatic movement.
The case is also water-resistant to 5 atm and has been equipped by Richtenburg with a robust, low-maintenance stainless steel bracelet.
Richtenburg offers 10 different versions of the Fastpace; four of them classically in stainless steel with dials in different colours: silver, black, dark blue and dark green. There is a model entirely in black as well as a gold-plated version with a black dial. In addition, there are two gold and rose gold models with silver dials and two trendy two-tone models with matching hands, numerals, crown and pushers. This way, Richtenburg ensures that everyone who likes the basic design will find a version that suits them.
