Under the high pressure, the small glass balls are applied to pressing on the steel and thus, forming a unique texture and a flat and slippery protecting coat. This techniques are also applied to other components, including crown, chronometer button, case button and clasps.

The big time scale is a little higher than the central bezel and is covered with luminous materials to provide a perfect effect for reading time. Deep grey hand is an obvious contrast to the black dial, and chronometer second at the middle dial is dotted with red dot. At the 4:30, black setting matching the white Arabic numbers can be seen clearly.
Different functions are displayed in different layers: in the middle of the dial it is processed delicately with circular pattern; the outside of the dial are marked in 1/4 seconds which precisely correspondent to the frequency of the movement, 4 Hz. The three small dial are set separately in 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock which displays 12 hours, small second and thirty minutes.
