Functions: Date, hours, minutes, center seconds, 24 hour hand (not separately adjustable)

This is my one-of-a-kind watch.  It's priceless.  It started out as a Chronomat watch, probably made in China.  The case is basically a copy of the Rolex Explorer II case, and the original dial was a a pretty uninspired, very flat looking printed affair.  I chose the Chronomat because the case and bracelet are all stainless steel, and relatively high quality.

I sent the watch to Kent Parks at Everest Custom Watchworks, along with an idea for a red-dialed watch.  Kent took my idea and made it way better than I ever thought it could be.
