The model’s dial is finished in gray with sub-counters laid out in classic Tri-Copmax style with and addition of full chapter power reserve indicator. Despite the rich features of the model, the dial is still simple enough to read all the information with ease. The sub-counters located at 4 and 8 o’clock feature a lighter tone background for improved legibility. Hands are rhodium plated and blued while the appliqué hour markers are made of white gold in line with the case. The night time legibility on the hand is limited to the hour and minute hands the rest of the hands and indices are not lumed.
