With names like “The Beast,” “Wilde-Beast,” “T-Rex,” “Stallion,” “Vulcan,” “Jackal” and “ the Beauty,” you know that Renato watches are offering you something out of the ordinary.
When he first set out, designer Mink Renato wanted to design luxury watches that were not cut from the basic mold. He succeeded with the release of “the Beast” in 2005, and has gone on to expand his line with unique combinations of colors and materials to create collectible watches for men and women.
Renato Watches, a private company headquartered in Sunrise, Florida, burst onto the scene in 2005 with its Collezioni line of luxury watches. That first year, it generated more than $1.1 million dollars in sales. Today, its lines are greatly expanded for men and women.
Renato Watches use high-grade materials for these expertly crafted timepieces, such as sapphire crystals, Swiss-made movements and 316L stainless steel, which can be refinished by a jeweler and will not oxidize or turn black. To back up the high-quality materials and workmanship, Renato Watches carry a five-year warranty. So if you want something different on your wrist, do as Renato Watches suggest: “Unleash the Beast within You.”
· A classic Renato Watch is the Men’s Beast X Sport World Traveler, with Swiss ISA movement and analog and digital functions. This bracelet watch features two rubber straps that look like anything but rubber. The two straps are different lengths and widths – 9″ long by 26mm wide, tapering to 20mm – and a 10 ¼-inch length by 31mm wide, tapering to 24mm W. It also features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and four bold color choices for the dial – black, blue, purple and yellow.
The Beast X Sport World Traveler has luminous silver-tone index markers at 10 of the hour positions. It features EL backlight illumination of its various digital functions, such as daylight savings, alarm, day and date, and voyager time. Setting off all of this is a pave-set diamond Arabic number 12 at the top of the dial. A knurled center complements the bezel and crown. This beautiful timepiece is water resistant to 990 feet.
· If you want all eyes on your wrist, consider the striking Limited Edition Mostro Swiss chronograph quartz bracelet watch. It comes with a black or blue dial. Part of Renato’s Mostro collection, the watch features a numbered, octagonal black ionic-plated stainless steel case indicating its limited availability. Four black screws secure the bezel, which is available in rose-tone or gold-tone and black accents.
Luminous index markers appear at all hour positions, except 12:00 and 8:00 where Arabic numerals are used. You will find a date window at 4:00, an alarm dial at 6:00, a seconds dial between 2:00 and 3:00, and an hour and minute dial between 9:00 and 10:00. The bracelet, connecting with a push-button dual deployant clasp, is 9 inches long by 30 millimeters wide.
· Renato’s gold-tone Beauty Petite Swiss Quartz stainless steel bracelet watch reflects what the watchmaker has in mind for the ladies. This classic design is part of a limited edition – and it says so, right on the dial. The round, gold-tone stainless steel case has a coin edge screw, brushed gold-tone bezel and stainless steel back. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the soft mother-of-pearl etched dial.
That dial comes in your choice of blue, pink, purple or white. The dial has diamond indicators at 10 hour positions, with a gold-tone Arabic number 12:00 and sparkling pave diamonds at 8:00. You will find the date, set off with a gold border, at 3:00. All of this beauty is powered by a Swiss quartz Rhonda 775 movement. The gold-tone stainless steel bracelet is clasped with a push-button dual deployant clasp.
· If you want to see a watch that sets Renato apart, check out their Lady Crystal Topaz Swiss quartz alligator strap watch. Wow! This is a watch you will not run across very often. First, it comes with a choice of genuine blue, green or pink alligator strap – fitting up to a 7 ½-inch wrist. Any of the straps set off the dazzling, sparking dial adorned with 93 green, 102 blue and 51 pink pave topaz gemstones. All this color is contained in a round, silver-tone case. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the dial, and a Swiss Ronda 782 Quartz movement powers the hour and minute hands.

The dials are some of the brightest on the market – for both men and women. Look at the collections and you are bound to find a watch that truly matches your personality.
