The start and stop functions of the chronograph are activated by pressing the crystal at 12 o’clock, while setting the counters on cero is intervened by an analog gesture, directed this time on the crystal’s 6 o’ clock. An integrated technical concept.
The vertical start system is a prodigy without precedent, gallant of a facility and simplicity of use that are simply great, based on a new integrated mechanism in a revolutionary watch case.
