The catch at two o’clock is start/stop/reset while the catch at four o’clock is the rattrapante activator. The development is a completely new 15 ligne type made completely of rose gold with steel highlights. It has a force save of 80 hours and each switch and spring is reflect cleaned. That is 80 hours with the chronograph running, Journe rushes to call attention to. The entire watch, however 44mm in measurement, is very slight at simply 11.5mm top to bottom.
