A Runabout is a gentlemen's motorboat holding between four and eight people, well suited to moving about on the water. The first runabouts date back to the 1920s and were originally small, fast, powerful varnished wooden boats created to take advantage of the power of a V8 inboard engine. In order to gain speed, the hull shape had to be designed to take advantage of hydroplaning; a hydrofoil-like design would allow the boat to skim atop the water's surface at high speed instead of needing to push aside large quantities of water to move forward. A classic Runabout boat is a design icon, a moving sculpture in wood, chrome and glass that commands attention wherever it goes. This new model is available in a limited edition of 1'888 pieces. Featuring a case diameter of 43mm and presented in Stainless Steel, the new Runabout Riva Edition offers a finely decorated silver dial with a moonphase & date pointer for complications. Alongside the watch, a miniature reproduction of a classic Runabout boat can be found inside the unique gift box.
