The Black 4 – the colour of the DLC coating that stands for ‘very black’ – of the new TimeWalker chronograph´s case covers the large planar dial. The various displays of this watch’s face are presented on different levels. The middle stratum, which covers the centre and  the  periphery   of  the  dial,  is embellished  with  a  fine embossed  pattern of  circular  striations. The periphery  bears  the  seconds  scale for the  chronograph’s slender  elapsed-seconds hand  and  is subdivided into  readily  legible quarter-of-a-second increments  to  match  the  4 Hz pace  of the  movement.
 
The  three subdials  –  one  for  the  continually running   second-hand and  two  for  the  chronograph’s  elapsed-time counters  – are positioned at the “6”,  the “9”  and  the “12”. The matte black hour-circle without textural embellishment is positioned slightly above the middle plane and bears strongly luminescent Superluminova numerals in the patented TimeWalker typography, along with equally clearly legible double indices. 
 
At the case back, the window offers a clear view of the automatic mechanical Calibre MB 4810/507. Equipped with an integrated chronograph function, this calibre ticks at a steady pace of 28,800 semi-oscillations per hour (4 Hz). So the chronograph’s elapsed-second hand advances in eighth-of-a-second increments – the exact measurement of brief intervals.
 
The black wristband deserves special attention because of the complexity of its material combination and manufacturing process. The strap’s inlay is made of black “Vulcarboné” cautchouc which gives the wristband extreme strength and flexibility.
