A 45mm stainless steel and matt black PVD case allows the timepiece to be modern and on trend providing a sleek feel to the wearer’s wrist and encases a dial whose color radiates with little alterations in design.

Simplicity in design is what keeps the Urban Class front and center for the world to see and admire. The subtle 8-filigree motif that marks the dial reflects luck and fortune without being ostentatious in design.

A jet-black leather alligator padding strap completes the piece adding the seamless balance to the “day to evening” wearability.
