The dial maintains the distinctive two-counter layout: 30 chronograph minutes at 3 o'clock and small seconds at 9. Just like in the original model, the chronograph minute counter marks the 3, 6 and 9 minutes, a feature that was originally designed to measure the duration of telephone calls. The large date window at 6 o’clock features a fast-changing date. The red details contribute to the sporty look of the watch.
Four dial variations are available: black or white, with or without sub-dials in contrast.
The steel case - 42 mm wide, 14,70 mm thick, and water resistant to 50 metres - houses the 8147 calibre based on an ETA 7750 13¼, a movement that guarantees reliability and precision. that have made Eberhard & Co. one of the points of reference for mechanical chronographs.
The unidirectional bezel has a steel base and a black insert in ceramic with engraved numbering, small indexes of the hours scale and triangle at 12 hours.
The caseback is attached with screws and contains the inscription "Tribute to Contograf - 1960s".
