The 45mm case and a thickness of 14.25 mm is very wearable and vintage looking with its satin brushed finishing. Perhaps one of our favorite features on the case are the curved lugs and the engraved plate —showing the case number and secured with two beautiful rounded head screws in titanium— on the left side of the case band.
