The Chronograph variant displays a green sunburst dial, which to the hands and date window of the Automatic version adds three counters faithful to the flyback chronograph consummated in a 30-minute register, a running seconds and a 12-hour counter at 3-6-9 hours respectively. The 37-jewel F385 automatic movement offers up to 50 hours of power reserve.
