Dressed on a classic silver dial, a date watch is also provided at the third hour. A UTC hand has been finished in a vibrant red tip to differentiate it from its accompanying rose gold coated central hands. The gentleman will take delight in operating the chronograph functions with two professionally polished push buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock, fitted to a perfectly round bezel.
