The dial is made of a whole piece of the inner shell layer of a Pinctada maxima shell also called the silver-lipped oyster.

The watch is equipped with the Swiss Made Sellita SW200-1 self-winding caliber with a power reserve of 38 hours. This “Chronometer” movement comes with premium components such as a Glucydur balance wheel which is exceptionally hard and stable, very resistant to deformation, non-magnetic, and non-corrosive.

The movement is fully decorated, has thermally blued screws and is wound by Formex’s custom-built skeletonized rotor. Each one of these movements is certified by the COSC (the official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) and undergoes the meticulous 15-day rate test to ensure extraordinary levels of mechanical accuracy and precision.

The patented Carbon Fiber Composite Folding Clasp with its fine-adjustment system allows on the go strap adjustment for a perfect fit in all conditions and temperatures.
