With its 39.5 mm. case, this watch stands well out of the crowd of its counterparts of the time, when a 37 mm. timepiece was considered oversized. The generous case is wonderfully preserved, with the step on the bezel well defined and crisp. The dial shifted color to a deep chocolate hue, a "tropicalization" process that adds charm and character to an already remarkable watch. Furthermore, the outer rim of the dial, better protected from sunlight, displays a lower degree of color shift. The final result is that the dial acquired an incredibly attractive two-tone brown effect. While the beauty of this watch is undeniable, the technical aspects of the piece are noteworthy as well: the two chronograph buttons in the band deceivingly lead the casual observer to think this is a normal chronograph. Actually, however, this is a single button chronograph, with the pusher at 2 o' clock used for the start-stop-reset cycle. The pusher at 4 o' clock is in effect a slide that, when activated, stops the chronograph in its track.
