Designed for users practising various sports which makes it necessary to use a compass or simply for a type of customer who wants to wear a watch "unlike all the others", a watch with a very aggressive styling and an extreme sturdiness which has been tested many times by the military and by the professional hikers (Paris-Dakar, Trailraid).

The lower case contains the compass which is revolving in order to ensure finding the right direction on a geographic map. The connection between the upper part and lower case is ensured by an axle and the locking by a patented mechanism.Compass: this is a precision instrument which required several years of development. The liquid contents is under constant pressure, i.e. approximately 3 bars at 28°C. The pressure may reach 30 bars at 78°C under extreme conditions, i.e. approximately 90Kg of pressure on each glass of the compass. The latter are held in place by screwed rings. This compass requires no maintenance for many years.It can endure pressures exceeding 30 bars without any difficulty. Precision is +/- 1°.
