A very modern take on the old “drivers” model idea where the wearer if driving a car for example can see the time clearly without moving the wrist on the steering wheel.

Relatively simple with the basics displayed elegantly and clearly of the dark display dial, surrounded by a gold tone sleek and modern case design. The standard layout shows most of what you need to get by.
This range of times to avoid should apply to most types of mechanical movements and even though this varies with movement Brands, hopefully I’ve allowed enough leeway to avoid any problems.
Look at the night shot and the dial clarity is something else, very good with no distractions at all. Others should take note! A good 120 click single rotation bezel with clear markings makes for a very practical watch and at 300 m Water resistance the Helium valve becomes a useful feature.
Overall the dial is as Classic as you can get. The inclusion of the modified Citizen movement is a good choice in my opinion and from experience I know these can be remarkably accurate, though I’m told can be noisy (I’ll check), but in practical terms performs better than many.
