Interestingly, the bezel only displays a black-and-silver design, the outer chapter ring on the dial has a tachymeter to calculate speed or distance. Placing this function on the dial creates a more sophisticated look than if it were on the bezel. The sharp angle of the ring towards the dial creates a good depth for this watch, with the negative side of the case thicker than it should be.

Long and thin chronographs remain at 12 o’clock unless used actively. Meanwhile, seconds are measured using a sub-dial at 9 o’clock. This setting can be confusing or annoying because you have to use both hands. The hour and minute are indexed, with silver lines surrounding the center of the white Lumibrite.
