Today’s wrist- check is one of two Red Line watches I own - the Red Line Meter Automatic RL-50013-11-BK
Red Line design their watches with a racing theme - plenty of call backs to gauges, dials, switches, buttons, treads,, and dials. Red Line also incorporated many primary colors like bold yellows, basic blacks, and fast reds.
Red Line owned now by the Clearlake Capital Group - previously owned by The SWI Group (Swiss Watch International) is kinda hanging out there in null space, meaning that the brand might be dead and no longer being developed or sold.
I picked this watch because it lacked most of the styling found across the Red Line Line of watches. My Red Line Meter is basic looking with a fixed 60min external bezel, 24hrs fixed internal bezel, black satin dial, date window at 3oClock, and a rubberized red crown.
My two Red Line watches look fine, keeps good time and did not suffer from poor build quality that plagued the rest of the Line. Once again I wish I knew more about the movement but I just can’t find any info on it.
Movement: 21-Jewel Japanese Automatic Movement includes hand winding and hacking.
Case: 45mm 316L Polished Stainless Steel
Crystal: Scratch Resistant Mineral
Band: 21mm (odd) Black Leather Strap
Note: I snapped this pic at 4:06AM while at work this morning, I have yet to adjust the date (only 30 days in Sept). Also, I hate the driver-side (window) racing safety net print that’s covering the movement exhibition window on the case back.
