As for the movement, it is a Calibre F185, a 308-part mechanical self-winding chronograph with a 40-hour power reserve. It has hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o’clock. It also has a window-type date display as well as central chronograph seconds hand and 30-minute and 12-hour counters as well. The chronograph movement has a flyback function.
