The UN-153 movement, which is designed and developed by the watch factory, includes two functions of an annual calendar and a precise chronograph, showing the technical achievements of the watch; crafted by the enamel dial experts at the Donzé Cadrans workshop in Athens The large open flame enamel dial presents white enamel color, and through this complex process, it displays superb beautiful art. The Grand Fire Enamel is a craft that dates back to the 17th century and is extremely difficult to master, making these enamel dials a collector’s treasure.
The elegantly shaped dial is lined with two chronograph dials. This simple design has appeared in the antique chronograph models of the Athens watch. The nautical calendar chronograph conveys the DNA elements derived from the ocean with elegant beauty. The month dial at 9 o’clock also has a small second hand display, a 30-minute chronograph display at 3 o’clock, and a circular calendar window at 6 o’clock. The date can be adjusted forward and backward, providing convenient and quick setting functions.

The marine calendar chronograph is specially selected with blue steel hands, which is in striking contrast with the exquisite white large fire enamel dial.
