It is a column-wheel chronograph and has four screwed gold chatons and a lever escapement. Shock-resistant balance wheel with eccentric poising weights; balance spring manufactured in-house, precision beat-adjustment system with lateral set screw and whiplash spring.

It is decorated and assembled by hand; precision-adjusted to five positions; plates and bridges made of untreated German silver; balance cock engraved by hand.

Functions are: hours, minutes and subsidiary seconds with stop seconds; flyback chronograph with precisely jumping minute counter; a pulsometer scale.

The dial is solid silver, argenté with hour and minute hands in rhodiumed gold; seconds, chronometer sweep seconds and minute counter in blued steel. In addition to deep-blue printed dial elements, it features a pulsometer scale at its periphery. It is used for heart-rate measurements. This is done by stopping the time while counting 30 heartbeats. Then, on the pulsometer scale, the chronograph sweep-seconds hand provides a direct reading of the number of beats per minute.

It comes on a dark blue hand-stitched alligator leather strap with an 18kt white gold prong buckle.
