An exceptional timepiece with an amazing focus on each detail beginning with the mechanics and ending with the spectacular decorated finish of the movement.The movement nicknamed the "Dual Wing" is powered by 2 separate mechanisms that drive the two features of the watch (Time & Chronograph), while a single regulating mechanism ensures equally high accuracy of all features. Each of the two mechanism have their own 50 hour power reserve which are independent of each other. Winding both mechanisms are facilitated using the single crown, winding the crown clockwise will wind the time feature of the watch, winding the crown counter-clockwise will wind the chronograph feature.This watch features:
Solid polished finished 18kt Rose Gold case & lugs, the sides of the case have a fine brushed/satin finished.
Silvered dial with a fine grain finish.

Combination of applied Rose Gold Arabic Numeral hour markers & painted black index hour/minute markers.

At the bottom of the chrono sub-dial is a window that the displays a rotating disc indicating the minute in units of 0-9 allowing an even more accurate reading.
A 1/6th of a seconds "Jumping Seconds hand" is located in its own sub-dial at the bottom center of the dial.
