Last summer, Maurice de Mauriac joined forces with Racquet for a limited-edition pink-dialed Rallymaster watch. In reprising their successful partnership, both parties have reunited to announce the new Rallymaster II in tandem with the U.S. Open.
Similar to the preceding timepiece, the Rallymaster II is also designed by Carlton DeWoody, who brings the same ’60s and ’70s pastel-hued graphics to the new reference. This time around, the 39mm watch’s hardcourt dial arrives in an ice-blue hue, complete with a rally-style flange, and applied indices that are reminiscent of tennis balls. Across the dial features a depiction of a tennis court, which alongside the indexes and handset are lume-filled to glow in the dark.
With an underwater resistance of up to 30 meters, the Rallymaster II operates on the Swiss-made Landeron 24 automatic movement that offers 40 hours of power reserve. The caliber can be observed via the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback, where it’s topped with a graphic imprint of Racquet’s logo.
Two pastel-hued NATO straps accompany the timepiece, one in blue and the other in pink. Inside each packaged box, a co-branded tennis ball will also be included.
Priced at $1,950 USD, the collaborative Rallymaster II is currently available for pre-order on both Racquet and Maurice de Mauriac’s official websites. The ordering window will remain open until September 10, 2023.
