The dial includes a second time-zone indicator at 6 o’clock, and an aperture for the date along with an aperture for the date. The two-position crown can reset the second-time-zone indicator by moving the central hour hand without affecting the minute hand. With the crown in that position, the date will continue to reflect the time displayed on the main dial. A 24-hour night-and-day indicator at 3 o’clock indicates whether it is daytime or nighttime in the second time zone. The subdial at 9 o’clock displays the dynamic tableau of the running seconds making their swift, 30-second rotations. The Type XXII 3880 comes fitted with an integrated brown leather strap that complements the dial and harmonizes well with the rose gold of the case. The price is $35,500.

Most of the watches operate at 4Hz i.e. 28,800 vph, whereas this Breguet operates at 10Hz i.e. 72,000 vph, I think this watch is truly outstanding!
Keep it up Breguet!
