The heart of the watch is the in-house developed movement P4000, the first in-house movement of the brand, as the demands of the luxury watch market become more and more challenging. It was built in 2014 and it stands out by the use of an off-center bi-directionally winding rotor that can offer a 72 hours power reserve.

So the love for the smallest details and the desire to brand all the components of a piece, in order to offer an original model, can be admired through the back of the watch, made from see—through sapphire crystal.
The mechanism is accommodated in a 42 mm AISI 316L polished steel case, the lugs and the middle section being carved basically from the same piece of material, a detail that makes it very compact but also contributes to the representative aesthetic, being a sport watch that can be easily fitted with a suit. It also sits formidably confortable on the wrist, as the black leather alligator strap with white stitching stays in place due to a removable bar, very mobile, embracing the wrist without strangle it.
