First ever-mechanical watch to be perfectly readable under water regardless of the viewing angle:

-    Mechanical, Self-winding 36h power reserve
-    41 jewels – 25 gears – 3 ruby ball bearings
-    324 components in total
-    Designed to comply with the ISO 6425 ( diver watch norm )
-    Full grade 5 titanium ( excluding the base movement )
-    10 ATM water resistant
-    87 grams

Dial Functions:

-    Hours, Minutes, Runner 90”, Oil temperature, Rotating Bezel

Innovations:

-    ROCS 5 ( patented complication module )
-    142 components
-    Convex grade 5 titanium bridges and discs ( 125 mm radius ) with 3 eccentric biaxial satellites inclined at 3° ( hours ) and 4,75° ( runner and oil temperature )
-    3D bridge architecture
-    Completely submerged in Oil ( 142 components )
-    Driven by the minute axle of the base movement ( 2824-2 custom modified )
-    Oil filled ( 37,5 ml )
-    Bellow system ( to compensate for oil volume changes due to temperature variations )
-    Magnetic transmission ( 12 micro magnets transmitting the minutes from the dry–base movement section to the oil–ROCS module section )
-    Magnetic shielding and flux concentration ( for higher connection power & movement protection )
-    Hydraulic shock absorber ( to avoid an uncoupling of the magnets due to a shock - 5000G ISO norm )
-    Two separate sealed of chamber architecture ( air & oil )
-    Crownless ( winding and setup via case back )
-    Locking system ( gasket compression system )

Relevance of the Type 5:

-    Only ever made mechanical watch that is readable under water regardless of the viewing angle.
-    Oil eliminates the internal mirror effect. All other mechanical diver watches must be viewed straight on.
-    Oil enhances the readability of the dial > main function of a watch.
-    Oil compensates for water pressure ( oil is uncompressible ) > light weigh watch for daily use ( 87 grams ).
-    Oil lubricates the ROCS components > less friction.
-    ROCS components are in suspension in oil. Lighter components > better precision.
