With a more muscular and bold silhouette, the watch leans on more interesting, industrial like forms which captured the imagination of watch designers in the 1970s for practical as well for aesthetic reasons. A strong octagonal watch chassis is topped with mineral crystal 120 click uni-directional turning bezel with luminous calibrations.

The bezel serves to frame an unfussy, utilitarian dial featuring round and rectangular hour markers topped with Swiss Super-LumiNova for increased low light legibility. The oversized minute hands, serve the watch as a clear read out of time elapsed, delivering the watch as a unique piece of diver instrumentation.
