There is a day/night indicator inside the day-of-the-month sub dial at 2 o'clock, and the second time zone sub dial is at 6 o'clock, with a red indicator for any of the alternate world cities that are bi-directional on a rotating disc between 5 and 7 o'clock. There is an up-and-down 40-hour power reserve indicator at 10 o'clock. The dial is silver with applied steel dart hour index markers, Arabic numerals at 3, 9, and 12 o'clock, luminous silver dauphine hour and minute hands, and a blued center hand for the complications. It's water resistant to 50 meters/165 feet, and the 12mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.
