Unique Messi touches

This long-term partnership between two leaders of their respective fields has created limited editions and unique pieces based on the Epic X Chrono. On every timepiece are the blue and white colors of the flag of Argentina, Messi's home country. Messi's famous number 10 is highlighted in red on the bezel, and his stylized "M" logo is at the six o'clock position on the dial. And in an extra-special touch, Messi's signature is on the exhibition caseback. 

The movement 

The high-quality movement is a Swiss Made column-wheel chronograph movement, partially skeletonized. Controlled by two pushers (start/stop and reset), the seconds are counted by the central chronograph hand and the minutes are clocked by the right-hand subdial. 

The case

The 47mm White Gold and Titanium case features anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a ceramic bezel and rubber pushers. Water resistant to 200 meters, the case also has a screw-down crown and an inner rotating bezel, controlled by the push-down crown at 10 o'clock. 

The dial

The Epic X Chrono Messi has a bi-compax layout, with the right subdial for the chronograph minutes and the left subdial for the running seconds. The dial itself is blued mineral crystal, allowing a glimpse into the column-wheel chronograph movement below.
