A curious code engages the global mind. The dark blue leather strap of this intricate Irony Chrono Retrograde presents a textured surface and white stitching and meshes snugly with the polished case and bezel, both in stainless steel 316L. The bezel features an engraved maroon band from which a series of three-letter airport codes from around the globe are raised in relief. A metallic blue flange with a light blue minute ring showing Arabic hours (13, 14 … 24) frames the maroon dial; a parallel white-on-maroon ring on the upper half marks minutes at two-minute intervals; on the lower half, white-on-maroon Arabic numerals (05, 10, 20, 25) and indexes mark the retrograde 30-second counter scale, and a white-on-black date aperture shows three days at a time. Polished metal appliques present the Arabic hour 12 and form a series of intersecting arcs against the maroon ground; the arcs outline the 30-minute, 5-minute and 30-second chrono counters and the continuous seconds counter; all subdials feature white numerals and indexes. Tapered shiny metal hour and minute hands and a slim white chrono seconds hand mark the time.
