It has a similar full metal construction, but with an aged finish. Its case and band are finished with black ion plating that is partly removed to yield the distinctive well-used look.

Apart from the new finish, the watch is still equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and the ability to receive radio wave time-calibration signals. It also features LED backlight and world time.
