Strap: 19mm aged brown calf leather strap with hand-stitched sides; stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Valjoux cal. 7733 manual-winding chronograph movement (17 jewels); bridge is properly signed by J.P. Pingouin Co. as a private label for LeJour

Features: Stunning original gloss black dial has aged to an incredible tropical brown hue throughout; 5-minute red regatta countdown register; 30-minute chronograph recording capability; original rotating dive bezel displays elapsed time and a second time zone

Other: It is very rare to see a glossy black dial turn this tropical brown over time. Most of them are more of a dark-chocolate tropical hue, but this dial is extremely brown. It's no wonder why tropical dials are so hot right now and commanding huge premiums in the market - They look absolutely incredible on the wrist and this Rivita chronograph is no exception!
