It has a dodecagonal (12-sided) titanium case with PVD-coated bezel and see-through back, vulcanized rubber crown guard, titanium strap with a folding clasp, black dial with luminous hands and nautical pennant hour markers.
The dial displays a magnified date window at the 3 o'clock position. It is powered by Corum's caliber CO 947 24 jewel movement with approximately 42 hours of power reserve.
