The watches present a distinctly Seventies character. The flowing curves of the streamlined steel case capture the spirit of the decade in a fascinating, iconic design. The dial, fashioned of German silver, is presented in galvanized silver, galvanized ruthenium, or blue. The ruthenium dial presents a sunburst surface, while the silver version is beautifully matt. The blue dial features finely graded shading passing from a lighter centre to a darker periphery.
The indexes on the dials are applied and come in white or rose gold, matching the hands. The watches feature central hours, minutes and seconds, a second stop and a panorama date at 6 o’clock. The automatic caliber 39-47 which provides the power for all of that is designed and crafted in the watchmaking manufactory of Glashütte in Germany. It provides a power reserve of approximately 50 hours.
