Retaining its highly-wearable 40.5mm case, this time around, the company opts for the use of a precious metal over its previous stainless steel counterpart. Replacing the deep blue dial is a slate-gray anthracite one with a fluted outer ring, highlighted by the white gold hands and applied indices. The day and date indicators sit comfortable at three and nine o’clock respectively, while the small seconds subdial graces the six o’clock position, also accented with a textured rim. The watch is then powered by the brand’s in-house L 155.1 Datomatic movement, a 31-jewel fully-automatic mechanic operating at 28,800 vibrations an hour with a power reserve of 50 hours. Completing the watch is either a hand-stitched dark brown integrated leather strap or a sportier black silicone strap, the latter being perfect for the 120-meter water resistance.
