This recreation brings the 1959 Alpinist back to life down to the last detail. Similar to the original model, large hour markers are placed on the glossy black dial, with the white minute markers creating a second circle inside. The bottom of the case is screwed down to prevent sand and dust particles from getting inside. A sturdy leather cuff protects the watch from perspiration. The hour markers as well as the hour and minute hands are all equipped with luminous markings to ensure excellent readability in the dark.
