> designed second time zone at 6 o'clock, will make this timepiece an eye catcher. The pocket watch inspired design it is complemented by the design of the crown, just like the one in the vintage pocket watches. The screw-in stainless steel back makes the timepiece water resistant to 10 ATM. It is secured on your wrist by a black genuine leather band that has a crocodile/alligator pattern to complement the classical design. The leather band closes with a Mercedes Benz star logo laser engraved stainless steel buckle.
> complication dates back to its use in pocket watches in the late seventeenth century. However it was not until the late twentieth century when it started to become a popular addition to wristwatches.
Simply put, a retrograde display doesn't indicate anything in a circular fashion be it the day, the date, the month, etc. , but rather in a semi-circle or arc. And because it doesn't conform to a circular design, the indicator hand will bounce (or "jump") back to the beginning when it has finished the sequence.High quality Japan made analog quartz movement.

I do have many watches, but you will get what is seen in the pictures. They are not stock photos.Please review the pictures carefully. They are part of the description. I try my best to provide accurate descriptions and pictures, but occasionally I miss something. I will consider that you accepted my terms and description. Please don't hold me responsible for the carriers performance. A never-ending source of misunderstandings often caused by the irresponsible advertising of certain competitors, who are usually the ones to refuse any responsibility when damage by water occurs. Here are the facts in plain English: 1. Every known brand submits the watch to a 2-phase test in a chamber, where it has to withstand to pressure for the minimum length of time required by industrial standards. It may seem a paradox, but low pressure-resistance, say at 0.5 bar equivalent to 50 cm depth is more critical to achieve, because increasing pressure tends to compress the seals, thereby increasing the resistance; the second phase test conducted at 3 bar 30 m. Because of a solid case-construction, the known brands watches will resist to 10 bar 100 m. Or 300 ft and we could confidently call it a «diver's watch» 2.
HOWEVER: The water resistance of a wristwatch is constantly challenged by mechanical wear caused by bumps, shocks etc. Rapid changes in temperature, caustic acids, chemicals, etc.And can therefore not be guaranteed as a permanent condition. I renounces to using inflationary «theoretical» claims; the decision to wear your valuable timepiece for swimming, diving or in the Sauna is yours.
On a side-note: only very few specially trained and equipped divers reach depths of 100 m and wear professional computers to indicate the life-saving compression- and decompression data; at such depths, normal watches will just not do.
