Les plus

  • Size of the 42X14.3mm case, fits confortably and has a good presence on the wrist.
  • Black dial and very neural and classical white hands: ordinary with a good contrast for the reading.
  • Well-worked lugs with brushed and polished finishings.
  • Easy handle crown.
  • Regular 20mm bracelets : the watch fits with almost all kinds of bracelets.
  • Crystal Hesalite is more tolerant of impacts than sapphire.
  • Tested movement that had proved succesful, very robust general construction.
  • Legendary space exploration watch : very well-highlighted at the back of the case.

Les moins

  • Some may say it looks a bit too sobre.
  • Crystal Hesalite is less tolerant of scratches than sapphire crystal.
  • Rising price, less affordable than it used to be.
  • The counters are not visible in the dark.
  • Slight jump of the second hand due to the 21600 bph : not as supple as a movement with 28800 bph.
