The model is equipped with a high-end automatic ETA 7750 Valjoux movement whose oscillating swing-mass is visible through a transparent watch-case back. The round satin-finish case features a polished tachymeter bezel which surrounds and highlights a magnificent dial edged in two steps, a brilliant aesthetic achievement in a blend of brown and gray tones.

Appliquéd and facetted indexes echo the sculpted reliefs of the hour and minute hands, in a superb geometric synergy that is further accented by the three chronograph counters cast upon a finely snailed background. The DS Podium Chrono Valjoux Automatic is available in 3 distinct dial variations.

Worn with a leather strap or a matching stainless steel band, this simply outstanding model answers the keenest wishes that even the most discerning collector might have.
