Encased within the 42mm stainless steel case is a deep blue sun-brushed dial, constructed completely out of ZrO2 ceramic and laser-engraved with wave patterns as a nod to the model’s diving heritage. The dial itself features the colors of the Olympic Rings, taking the form of numerous five-minute markers as well as some of the round applied indexes. The METAS-certified Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 automatic movement then sits between a sapphire crystal surrounded by a grade 5 titanium dive bezel and a solid, engraved caseback, boasting a power reserve of 55 hours while operating at 25,200 vph.
