Albert Riele Family 1881 Collection

This jubilee collection from Swiss watch brand Albert Riele offering uniquely styled watches with additional functions commemorates the birth of a brand that will celebrate 135 years in 2016. Each model honors the Albert Riele brand its own unique way, whether through its sublime design or the elegance of its technology. The collection also offers four pocket watches in a limited edition of 135 timepieces.
The heart of every Family 1881 timepiece is its Swiss mechanism – a self-winding movement in wristwatch models, engraved ‘Albert Riele’ on the rotor, and a manually-wound one in pocket watch models, signed with the brand logo on the bridge. The mechanisms are discreetly ornamented, and the workings can be observed through the sapphire-crystal caseback.
With each detail refined, these movements are complemented by the eye-catching nuances of their settings, from dials with sunray finish and ideal indices through to stylized crowns sporting the AR logo.
Family 1881 Limited Edition: These unique pocket watches are the flagship timepieces from the Family 1881 jubilee collection, some in a limited edition of 135. Their exquisite and ingeniously constructed movements are the perfect embodiment of the Albert Riele brand’s character.
They pay tribute to tradition and yet are at the same time an expression of the company’s approach to form and presentation. This duality is further emphasised by the watch construction, allowing the wearer to read the time and observe the workings of the mechanism through the transparent caseback, and in two models, through the dial, thanks to the skeleton construction.

The Family 1881 also offers men’s and women’s models equipped with Swiss quartz movements.
