While just accessible in monochromatic styles, with sand-impacted matte cases/dial – regardless of whether in steel, in titanium, in gold or in dark artistic – the brand adds new forms this year .

Through and through, a develop item that keeps its attractive quality while adding some every day wear proofness. Conceivably the best release up until this point (and furthermore the most open one)
