DIAL & HANDS

The matte black dial serves as a fantastic backdrop to the chunky tritium indices at every hour, which have aged to a creamy golden color. The rectangular white hour and minute hands complement the design of the case and are in great condition with lume still intact, the lume has aged slightly lighter than the dial which is common in this era. The center chronograph hand offers a fantastic pop of red. The grey mirrored registers are ultra unique and are in excellent condition. The date window at 12 o’clock completes the view.
