DIAL & HANDS

The deep black dial is simply gorgeous. Besides some very light spotting and a couple of missing radium dots, it is immaculate. It features an inner and outer dial, the former showcasing a beautiful crosshair design and small subseconds register while the latter houses the mix of applied steel chevron and arabic markers. The dial also shows off an applied steel Longines logo and gorgeous dauphine hands.
