Originally used in marine chronometers, the power reserve indication soon became an established feature of wristwatches too. It displays the current state of tension in the mainspring and the residual power in terms of hours.

The power reserve of the Manero Power Reserve is indicated by a hand in a
semicircular indication at 3 o’clock. As the power is used up, the hand slips into a red shaded area. The day of the week (at 9 o’clock) and the special big date (at 11 o’clock) can also be read at a glance, as can the integrated small seconds at 6 o’clock.

The black dial is divided into an outer ring and an inner ring, which are differentiated by color. While all functions are to be found on the lighter-colored inner circle, the outer darker circle is segmented by rose gold markers. This optical variation provides a pleasing transition to the 18 Kt rose gold case, which is 42.5 mm in diameter and 12.54 mm in depth.

The watch houses the CFB A1002 Manufacture automatic caliber, which in this model is integrated in a Manero for the first time. A particular feature of the movement is the peripherally mounted and bidirectional oscillating weight, which supplies power to the automatic gear train. The patented dynamic shock absorption system known as “Dynamic Shock Absorption” (DSA) offers the ultimate in efficiency and reliability.

The timepiece is complemented by the black alligator-skin strap.
