Because the diameter of the watch has increased and the hands of the watch have not increased, the new look of the new watch The hand is short, and the minute hand is particularly noticeable. Then the 3, 6, and 9 luminous hour markers on the watch dial were cancelled and became stainless steel. The internal change was that the movement was upgraded from the 3130 movement to the 3132 movement. The old one offers 42300 yuan, the new one offers 51100 yuan, which is not expensive, and regardless of the price, we still recommend the new one.

The appearance of the second time zone pointer has changed from red to orange, and More stout.
