The dark blue alligator strap is hand-sewn with a unique thread made from silk combined with a fine strand of 950 platinum. Platinum’s remarkable malleability makes this possible. A single gram of the metal can be drawn out to form a thread more than one mile in length. The folding clasp is also made of 950 platinum.

Its fine watchmaking finishes include Côtes de Genève, beveled and rhodiumed bridges, and a circular-grained mainplate. The watch and movement bear the Hallmark of Geneva, an independent certification of origin, craftsmanship, durability and expertise.
