The watch in brushed titanium, with brushed titanium pushers and crown protector and a rubber-coated titanium crown, features the brand’s familiar shock-absorbing case (52.10 by 43.50 mm) but with a distinctive new dial design, featuring a one-piece applique that comprises the rings for the continuous seconds and chronograph counters, 11 integrated hour markers and an over-sized Arabic 12 in the appropriate position. This rhodium-plated element has a sun-brushed finish that contrasts with the black dial, with orange SuperLuminova dots used for the hours. Brushed rhodium-plated skeleton hands with orange SuperLuminova tips complete the look. A sectorial date window at 4.30 indicates the day’s date with the previous and following dates visible to avoid any confusion when the date is changing. This new model is powered by a self-winding Swiss-made chronograph movement, with a power reserve of 42 hours. Suspended in a sealed titanium container, the movement is guaranteed water resistant to 50 metres. Black rubber bracelet with pushbutton-operated foldover clasp in steel and titanium.
