The sapphire scratch resistant window ensures that you can work or play without worrying about scratches. Sapphire crystal is very hard, next to diamond, and though it’s difficult to get a scratch on it, it’s not entirely impossible.
IWC had managed to pull off a good one by showing the month, date and time in the separate windows without having a heavy top. The anti-reflective coating reduces light reflection which is a drawback of the sapphire crystal.
On the dial, the hands move on the Pellaton winding system, Arabic numerals, and feuille hands.
The power driving IWC’s automatic movements had come from the pawl-winding system invented by Albert Pellaton.

The scratch-resistant dial is beautifully bound by alligator strap. Alligator leather is known for its durability, exclusiveness and easy maintenance.
