Powered by a GL224 Swiss automatic movement based on either the ETA 2824-2 or SW200-1 which operates at 28,800 bph (4 Hertz) with hacking and hand winding capabilities, the Combat Vintage Blackout Bi-Tone is built with 25 jewels and a power reserve of 38 hours. This timepiece also features a flat sapphire crystal with three layers of anti-reflective coating on its underside for greater legibility under any lighting conditions.
Finished with a full satin-brush, this watch sports a unidirectional rotating bezel with a gilt-tone aluminium insert and a screw-down crown at 3 o’clock which works more smoothly due to a larger screw tube used. This signed bronze crown and its steel screwed case back engraved with essential information that characterises this timepiece are responsible for the Combat Vintage’s impressive water resistance of 200m.
