The best part of the Datascope is the case, using a design that is as old as Moinet himself. The watch comes in three limited edition color variations with a silver, black, or bordeaux colored dial (60 pieces in each color). The case itself is grade 316L steel, while the hands are blued and rhodium covered. The unique engraving design on the dial and case back is know as "Côtes du Jura." The movement is a high-grade yet basic automatic mechanical movement with the date (seen through the banana shaped aperture). The craftsmanship and design of the watch are impressive, if not a bit pretentious, but then again you usually want this from watches at this price point (which I guess will be in the $10,000 range). Lastly, Louis Moinet is so confident about their watches, the warranties are supposedly hand written.
