The material of the case is black titanium contrasting nicely with the soft black strap. The watch has a mechanical mechanism and automatic winding.  A striking feature of this watch is its unbelievable 7 day power reserve that even comes with its own display. This makes the watch unique and unbelievably efficient. The watch comes with four dials a perpetual calendar with four digit year display month and date dials and even a double moon phase display for when the moon is in the northern or southern hemisphere. All these are adjustable by the crown. The crown itself is a defining element of this watch; being oversized and uniquely stylized it gives the watch a lot of its strong, manly character. The sapphire crystal is convex and has a double anti-reflective coating on both sides making the watch very easy to read.  It is water resistant for up to 6 bars making it perfect for any type of water activity, be it simple swimming or diving.
