In addition, the design of the small second dial is also for the classic aftertaste. In the original timepiece, the second, minute and hour hands were independent small dials. Due to the inconvenient reading time, all three hands were moved to the center of the dial, and the small seconds Pan is the best testimony of that era. The small seconds dial adopts the orbital design, and the iconic element of the industrial era-the track finish, highlights the historical charm.
