Modern urban grace signifies the vivid design of this Black Velvet. The 36 mm case, bezel and dial are made from robust but ultra light dark grey carbon with a unique wave-like effect. As a powerful contrast to this dusky background a setting of 66 Paraiba tourmalines adorns the bezel and lugs. The watch is equipped with a self-winding movement and has a satin-finish strap.
