When looking at the face one will see a dragging minute indication displayed on a disc with a red indicator that has been transferred on the sapphire crystal that protects this intricate time piece. This however, is only a small part of the face, the majority, including the crown, is solid, black, PVD-coated, Titanium. The hour can be read laterally off the side of the watch. It is displayed by a linear retrograde jumping hour system with the hour indicated by a red-lacquered cursor. It’s innovative design gives the case a dimension of 50 x 44,5 x 18,5 mm. The beadblasted titanium plates that are elegantly integrated into the face of this timepiece add to this perfect dimension.

Only the finest anti-reflective metallised sapphire crystals were used. This contemporary timepiece is divine all the way down to its strap.
