New Core Guard Structure
An inner case is installed in a box-shaped frame formed by screws that securely connect the bezel, case back and band connection pieces. A stronger structure is realised by absorbing shocks with the exterior instead of the core.
Fine-resin parts are firmly fixed by screws to the base of the thick, soft urethane band, which is then securely attached to the case by metal parts and large bolts. This unique, newly developed tough structure has reinforced the band connection section, where metal and resin intersect.
Sallaz polishing, said to be the ultimate polishing technology, produces exceptionally smooth mirror-finished surfaces on sloping parts of metal products. Other processing techniques such as hairline, knurling (crown) and honing (screw shafts) processing are also included in the thoroughly detailed finishing conducted by the skilled hands of craftsmen.
Refinement of the exterior design by improving the connection structure and developing a smaller module has reduced the case to 55.4 mm vertically (12:00–6:00 axis), 51.92 mm horizontally (3:00–9:00 axis) and 14.39 mm in thickness.
The dial’s look of quality is enhanced by the texturing of the index and inset dial ring and by the grinding and installation of a laser-engraved minute hand.
Dual Dial World Time - two city simultaneous time display
The times in two different cities are displayed on the main dial and an inset dial. This enables at-a -glance checking of the current time in either location with no troublesome operation.
Five-motor drive including a dual-coil motor
Nimble operation is achieved by driving each hand independently. A small hand at 6 o’clock is driven by a dual-coil motor that presents unique hand movements.
Super Illuminator (High-brightness LED light)
An LED illuminates the dial with bright light to ensure visibility in the dark.
