Sapphire crystal is reassuring and appreciable. The affordable price of the watch could have suggested that the glass would be mineral, but the creators had the good idea of ​​not giving in to this imperative. Well played.

The Italian red cowhide strap looks great. It is easily replaceable thanks to its flash pump system.


The bottom of the box is engraved with the brand logo.

On the machinery side, there is no extravagance with a classic swiss quartz movement Round 1069
