The 1972 chronograph is based on a famous German chronograph that was designed for military use and inspired by motorcycle racing and culture. The sleek 41mm barrel case design stays very true to the original. Understated, but masculine, it looks great on wrists of all sizes. The dial speaks to the purpose-driven ethos of the original but mixes in additional functionality with an alarm function. Featuring a remarkably detailed relief of a motorcycle on the back, the 1972 will charm fans of the original watches, and impress those who are looking for a retro design that is off-the-beaten-path.
The 1972 is powered by the Miyota OS80 Quartz Chronograph caliber. This Japanese-made movement mixes a 1/10th second chronograph mechanism with an additional alarm function. About the center of the dial are four hands, including hour, minute, chrono-seconds and alarm-time indicator.
The watch is accompanied by a steel bracelet and a canvas strap roll.
