The Le Grand features a brushed and polished 316L surgical stainless steel case measuring Ø 43 mm. This watch boasts a remarkable water resistance up to 1200 meters. The screwed crown with crown guard protection and the Automatic Helium Release Valve ensures the safety of the watch during diving.

The Le Grand diving timepiece is powered with a 25 Jewel Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement with date wheel, and offers a power reserve of 40 hours. The specially designed bezel enables the easy setting with diver gloves. It can only be turned to left with 120 clicks. The bezel indexes and numbers are imposed with luminous material and the bezel insert is made of sapphire crystal.
Dial and hands are coated with Swiss C3 and C1 Super Luminova. The big minute hand and hour hand have silver facets. It is also supplied a second kit of hands in white/orange colour. The Le Grand features a comfortable 22mm mesh bracelet with signed buckle and double locking clasp.
