It measures 46 mm in width and is 15.5 mm in thickness and is made from titanium material with two chambers which are separately sealed with oil in the upper part separating it from the lower chamber which is dry for the sake of the movement. The reason for the oil is to make the face of the watch legible regardless of the angle you’re viewing it from. When you flip the watch over the case back does away with the need for a traditional crown as it serves as he component that is used to set the time on the watch and for winding. The back of the case is a new development for the Type 5 line and it is called the Ressence Compression Lock system which makes use of a gasket and compression function offering the positions of both lock as well as set. The bezel is a unidirectional type.
