A twist on previous versions of this watch was the opting for square sub-dials with red accents, reminiscent of aviation control panels, instead of keeping them round. The black dial has index markers with luminescent coating highlights, just like the hour and minute hands possess in order to tell time at a glance. The three sub-dials are a: 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position, a 12-hour counter ate the 6 o’clock position and a sub-seconds dial at the 9 o’clock position.
