With its slim beveled bezel, slender lugs and pure case housing a chronometer-certified self-winding caliber, the Transocean Day & Date admirably reflects the spirit of both long-distance travel and urban sophistication aboard luxurious long-haul airliners. The silver dial displays the date at 3 o’clock, and the day through an arc-shaped aperture at 12 o’clock. This model, epitomizing balance and understated elegance, is adorned with applied hour markers and a subtle cross-shaped dial arrangement reminiscent of the original Transocean – a grand classic launched in 1958.
