It houses a large balance wheel of which diameter is 12.6mm and the latest movement, which was modified and down-sized. As seen in the previous model, time is displayed in the separate sub dial. A power reserve indicator and small second are arranged on the left hand side. Two high speed rotating barrels are designed to achieve long power reserve of approximately 72 hours. Limited edition, only 33 pieces available.
