The new steel models come with a frosted silver-coloured, navy-blue or anthracite dial, and circular brushed rings around the sub dials.

What makes these models especially unique is the hand-engraving of the ‘claw’ of the rose gold-plated rotor, which was done by famous engraver Jochen Benzinger. This sublime rotor, with its outer guilloche décor on rhodium plated steel can be admired through the sapphire case back.

This beautiful watch is driven by the CVDK7758 chronograph caliber with Ariadne complication. The chronograph indicates the elapsed seconds, minutes and hours. In addition, the watch has a full calendar (day, date, and month), a moon phase indication at 6 hours and the indication of time on a 24-hour scale. The position of the Moon can be read at the 6 o’clock position.
