A sun satin-finished Daytona blue dial with chronograph counters makes for a splendid frontage, while an automatic movement featuring chronograph, tachymeter, day & date functions keeps things ticking over under the bonnet.

The hours and minutes hands are shaped like a steering wheel and adorned with Superluminova, while the dial is finished with subtle vertical racing stripes, completing the tribute to the legendary car.
