The dial design is inspired by the FC Barcelona emblem. By unifying the vivid coloring of the emblem with the metal color, it expresses the pride and unwavering strength of the club’s steel. The “FCB” logo in the center and the football icon at 6 o’clock are beautifully finished with a mirror surface, while a small window with visible movement balance is placed on top of the “Cross of San Jordi” at 10 o’clock. San Jordi (or Saint George) is the Patron saint of Catalonia, Spain.
