From the creator of the Zeromaster, in Japan:
KEN TRADING BRAIN releases a brand "R-X-W SOLID" for western countries in the beginning of 21st century. "R" repersents "Rock," "X" is for "Excel," "W" means "Watch, and Solid as strong. That is "The watch stronger than rock." At the same time, the brand represents absolute confidence of Takeshi Sato, the owner of the company. For example, the stainless steel SUS316L is overwhelmingly stronger highest-quality type compared with standard stainless steel 304L. Magnetic force is must be avoided for the precision of watches but SUS316L has the property that is difficult to be magnetized. In addition, the material is left as it is for a long period, and only the one without bending or rust is used for the model. Further, to increase durability, more than 100t of pressure and heat are applied as "forging process," and the solid case with extreme durability and dense molecular structure is completed. ZEROMASTER is the memorial 1st model of such R-X-W SOLID. The model also features UTC World Timer with independently-moving 24h hand and antimagnetic dial plate. The model actively adopts new materials and technology including antimagnetic feature. On the other hand, unique antique index, Mont-Blanc-shaped acrylic crystal, and retrospective design are adopted. "Old" but "New" high-dimensional accord shows high integrity as the 1st model of R-X-W SOLID. Elaborate craftsmanship and performance specially prepared for "Modern adventures who explore big cities in the world" will surely attracts all the antique watch fans. Challenge to the 21st century, new sense of value, ultimate specifications, and the passion for watches without compromise--there are many keywords to express R-X-W. However, it is certain that the model ZEROMASTER created from such background will never be faded even after hundreds of years. Ultimate strong and retrospective UTC world timer watch is born here.

Hi, this is Alan, thanks for reading. My contact information is below. Here is a circa 2001 automatic GMT watch called RXW Zeromaster, designed as an homage to an extremely rare 1937 Rolex chronograph. The chrono was called Zerograph, and it has been stated that between 7 and 12 of these were ever made. That's pretty crazy.
It has also been said that only 100 of the Zeromaster were ever made.
