Red Army Watches Malaysia is looking to help everyone greet the coming Raya holiday season in style as they have unveiled their latest additions to their Laco and Gorilla timepiece collections in Malaysia. In a special showcase, Red Army Watches revealed the tough looking Squad Collection by Laco as well as distinctive looking Fastback collection exemplified by the Bandit from the Gorilla Fastback GT Collection.

Fastback by Gorilla collection

The Fastback collection by micro watch brand Gorilla is inspired by the iconic muscle cars of the 60’s and 70’s that are the epitome of power and performance wrought in steel and chrome. The iconic curves that are the hallmark of muscle cars design are all brought to life with impeccable design and exacting attention to detail and craftsmanship. Crafted from forged carbon, the Fastback collection consists of the Phantom Black, RS White and Acid Green Fastback watches, each of which comes with a matching strap.

The Phantom Black Fastback has a bead blasted ceramic bezel matched with a camo rubber strap. The Acid Green Fastback has a polished black ceramic case with a matching strap while the RS White integrates a white ceramic finish with matching strap. The centerpiece of Gorilla’s latest collection remains the exquisitely engineered Gorilla Fastback GT Bandit that is inspired by one of the most famous cars in American motoring history – the Pontiac Trans Am 1977 Firebird bandit. A Miyota 90S5 movement is encased in a forged carbon case with rose gold-tinted accents and a mirror polished ceramic bezel. Also available are a variety of alternative hued straps that can be swapped as needed that are sold separately. The Gorilla Fastback GT Bandit retails for RM5,070 while the Fastback in Phantom Black, RS White and Acid Green retails in RM3,870.


Squad collection + Navy collection by Laco

Known by aficionados and horophiles for their extensive history in crafting aviator and maritime watches, German brand Laco has rolled out the slick looking Squad Collection that combines superb craftsmanship with immensely practical design. The exoskeleton is coated to resist rust and water while the hands and dial are embellished in Superluminova for visibility under challenging light conditions. The Laco Squad collection comes in four subvariants, each sporting a name that evokes its intended environment where it will function best – Amazonas, Atlantik, Himalaya and Mojave.

Another new addition by Laco are their Navy collection which comes in two slightly different subvariants dubbed the Navy Cuxhaven and the Navy Bremerhaven. The Navy Cuxhaven is adorned with a classic looking white dial and a cream-coloured leather strap while the Navy Bremerhaven has a black dial with matching black leather strap. Both timepieces evoke the aesthetics of a 1940’s pocket watch and hints of the design of timepieces used by crew of a U1 submarine. In Malaysia, the Squad by Laco collection has prices that start from RM4,500 while the Navy collection retails for RM4,745.

All the aforementioned timepieces are available to admire and, of course, acquire at Red Army Watches outlets nationwide at 1 Utama shopping centre, Pavilion mall in Kuala Lumpur and in Gurney Plaza, Penang. For more details swing by
