The watch features a silvered dial with blued pear-shaped hands, mustard brown Arabic hour markers, a small seconds at 6 o'clock, an interior railway minute track, and a solid 18kt hinged watch case.

This piece of experimental watchmaking history is the result of a collaboration between Frédéric-Emile Blancplain and Léon Hatot.
Of the two commercially available versions of this model, this is the "large" men's version, rather than the 17mm "small" version.
