The new model uses a 6R35 calibre which comes with a colossal seventy hour power reserve, 21,600 beats per minute and sapphire crystal which has been reworked, now with a date magnifier and an anti-reflective coating on the inner surface. The anti-reflective coating helps to prevent glare on the watch which is particularly beneficial when climbing up a mountain on a hot summers day.The watch has a ‘go anywhere, do anything’ water resistance of 200 metres. On the side of the case is a twin crown setup, with the lower controlling the inner compass with the one positioned at 3 o’clock controlling the time and date.
