MOVEMENT

The Argonite 705 is a force

The high-accuracy quartz movement — hand-assembled in Detroit with 43 components — drives the hours, minutes, seconds and date function with precision. It is built in Detroit with Swiss and imported parts.

CASE

BACK IN BLACK

The quiet strength of a Sandblast PVD Black case with a classic pumpkin crown and sapphire crystal. Sapphire is second only to the diamond in hardness and much more durable than mineral glass when it comes to protecting the watch from scratches.

DIAL

A HANDSOME FACE

Applied Arabic numerals accentuate this smooth black dial with Super-LumiNova hands.

STRAP

Tan Aniline Latigo Leather

Smooth and sophisticated, this leather strap will develop a patina over time, enhancing the overall character of the watch for a look unique to you. This strap is cut and sewn in America and is removable and customizable with the purchase of an additional strap.
