Development of the watch

I direcly work with a top manufacturer in Hong Kong to redesign the watch and avoid the désigner cost. I didn't want to copy paste the watch but give it à touch of modernity.
I chose to increase a bit the size to fit with actual standards 40mm case, 20mm strap size.
I change the yellow gold to pink gold color.
I add a date between 4 and 5 hours, this is an hommage to one of my favorite vintage chronograph, guess which one is it.
The indexes are hand applied and are giving volume to the dial.
I chose to put in à very reliable Miyota japanese quartz movement that keep the price affordable without downgrading the quality.
The original chrono had a Plexiglas glass but I chose à double dome sapphire glass with anti scratching treatment. You can scratch sapphire only with diamond. It could have been à regular plastic glass but the quality would have been much more lower.
