A key part of the model’s identity is the bezel moulded with a tachymetric scale for measuring average speeds of up to 400 miles or kilometres per hour. Blending high technology with sleek aesthetics, the black bezel is reminiscent of the 1965 model that was fitted with a black Plexiglas bezel insert. On this original edition, the number 100 in red ceramic is an homage to the centenary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
The monobloc Cerachrom bezel in high-tech ceramic offers a number of advantages: it is corrosion resistant, virtually scratchproof and the colour is unaffected by UV rays. This extremely durable bezel also offers an exceptionally legible tachymetric scale, thanks to the deposition of a thin layer of platinum in the numerals and graduations via a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process – apart from the number 100, which is filled with red ceramic. The monobloc Cerachrom bezel is made in a single piece and holds the crystal firmly in place on the middle case, ensuring waterproofness.This watch has a power reserve of 72 hours. You can enjoy the movement of the watch with its now sapphire glass openwork view case-back. This is not a custom piece and comes with the original certificate and boxes.
