With a refined, stainless steel case, the IWC model features a navy-blue dial and a co-branded folding clasp. They have also incorporated the white and red accents which are recurrent colors in the Orlebar Brown’s product range.

This marine chronograph is mounted on a blue rubber strap, which is encrusted with textile. Due to the robust design and its water resistant nature, this piece is ideal for experiencing thrilling adventure on the deck of a yacht. The watch also offers a 68-hour power reserve.
