Case and Dial.
The stainless case has a diameter of 40,7 mm and is a mix of classic and modern design. It’s nicely finished and polished.
A unique, timeless and design determining feature is the convex hard plexiglass with sicralan coating. The Sicralan MRL UV coating method was developed for suppliers to the automotive industry. This transparent coating causes a functional and aesthetic value: increased scratch resistance, improved UV and chemical resistance and a more intense deep gloss. The downside of the convex hard plexiglass is that it’s not as scratch resistant as a sapphire crystal. The shape of the crystal is part of it’s distinctive design but also increases the risk of scratches.
The 5 times screwed back of the case is provided with a mineral glas and the case is water resistant up to 3 atm/30 meters.
The dial has sunray brush finishing in anthracite-grey color and is slightly bended following the crystal.
There is a day and date window in the dial. The minute and hour hand have a stripe off Super Luminova.
Because of the reflections due to the crystal in combination with the shiny parts and grey colors of the dail, the time/chronograph sometimes are difficult to read. A very positive aspect is the SuperLuminova on the hands, which is not seen on many other comparable dress watches.
The strap is made of horse skin. It’s nice, comfortable and durable.
Unfortunately there is no folding clasp and at this price range my opinion is that it has to be standard available. Certainly for this watch it would almost be a necessary safety feature to prevent the watch from falling down when you put on your watch with it’s scratch sensitive crystal. You can find several cases at internet forums where unfortunately this occurred.
