Movement The Argonite 5050 is king of multi-tasking

The high-accuracy quartz movement—hand-assembled in Detroit with over 100 components—drives the hours, minutes, date indicator, stopwatch function and all three sub-dials with split-second precision. It is built in the USA with Swiss and imported parts.

Case Titanium tough

A strong case for quality time. This solid titanium case epitomizes strength and features a classic pumpkin crown, a turning top ring bezel, and double curve sapphire crystal. Sapphire is second only to the diamond in hardness – making it ideal for protecting your watch from scratches and perfect match from a timepiece this tough.

Dial Quiet strength

A black dial with matte velvet finish, this dial gets a bold look from 3 subdials, a stopwatch function, and Super-LumiNova printed dial details. Other attributes include applied Arabic numerals and Super-LumiNova hands with a remote second-hand sweep.

Strap Solid Titanium bracelet

Talk about a strong finish. This three-link bracelet light, versatile, and made from brushed titanium. It is also removable and customizable with the included additional rubber strap.
