The upgrade to a yellow UTC hand offers not only a point of difference in the overall design but also facilitates legibility via the colour contrast. This small feature brings a good deal of clarity to an otherwise highly functional aviation timepiece.
The large, 42 millimetre diameter of this chronograph and its strikingly domed sapphire crystal glass lend it its elegant form.
In terms of features, the DIAPAL Technology makes for a lubrication-free escapement, the Ar-Dehumidifying Technology for enhanced freedom from fogging and specified functional reliability at temperatures between -45 °C and +80 °C ensures maximum reliability even under extreme conditions. The display features an important additional time measurement function in the form of a second time zone on 12-hour basis. The unusual quality of this watch is also underlined by the charcoal grey electroplated dial.
