The gray gold or 5N red gold dial features a large instantaneous date that offers optimal readability thanks to an aperture of 4.7 x 2.6 mm. On the right, the hours, minutes and seconds are indicated within an off-centre guilloche silver sub-dial. The knurled crown, enlarged in order to perfect the balance of the case, allows the adjustment of the Automatic. These elements, together with the blue-toned hands in the shape of an elongated drop and the counter bezel, in polished steel screwed onto the dial, are all features that make the watches unique.
