Equipped with the automatic caliber El Primero 4052 B, the new El Primero Striking 10th is UN model in Pink gold 18 carats, with UN Case of 42 mm waterproof to 10 ATM (100 meters) and surmounted by UN crystal sapphire anti-reflective Treaty of each side.

The Dial Silver soleillé is distinguished by brushed surfaces and circular satin and have three counters. The gold version rose SE pare of three meters anthracite. The Hands and index of hours faceted coated with Superluminova are gold plated.

The chronograph to blistering second is distinguished by the fact that the needle of the chronograph performs its rotation in 10 seconds exactly, thus greatly improving the reading in 1/10th of a second. This new feature is accompanied by divisions of the internal bezel of the dial six times more large (10 seconds instead of 60) Ensuring a reading is extremely precise of the 1/10th of a second.

The movement El Primero of origin made the turn of the dial in 60 seconds by small jumps of 1/10th of a second. The needle of the chronograph then performs 600 jumps per minute. Stopping and Restarting ultra-fast of this great needle of chronograph 10 times per second require a large amount of energy. The functions of the watch had to be significantly improved and optimized to allow this increased consumption of energy. The reduction of this energy need has naturally involved in the manufacture of wheels of movement as lightweight as possible. This is the reason for which some are in silicon, UN material 3½ lighter than traditional materials

This model to the once elegant and sophisticated is proposed with UN Strap leather black alligator doubled of rubber and closing by a Tang Clasp in Pink gold 18 carats.

Perfect embodiment of an advanced technique that reflects its unique design, the El Primero Striking 10th becomes a new reference in the reading of high precision
