For its new generation of alarm watches, the manufacturer has revised the self-winding calibre 956. The transparent sapphire back demanded a complete redesign of the striking mechanism, with the gong now attached to the case side. The additional Timer function enables the owner to set the alarm based on the number of hours that should elapse before the alarm rings.
The dial is laid out in concentric rings, in two shades of blue with a sunray finish, complemented by an inner ring engraved in bas-relief with polished numerals. On this inner ring, the elapsed hours-until-alarm are indicated by a small hand tipped with a red JL logo.
