The Bezel only rotates in an anti-clockwise direction for added safety allows immersion times to be calculated. An engraved Slow-running torpedo is boasted by the screw-down case-back. To allow commandos to perform their underwater missions with agility and as effectively as possible the underwater vehicle created by the Italian Navy. The 30 ATM is guaranteed (a depth of around 300 meters).
