Building on the recent success of the Master Control Calendar with blue dial, the latest Master Control Calendar with interchangeable strap comes in a palette of dial colors focused on purity and refinement. The sunbrushed silver dial features a tone-on-tone aesthetic, retaining essential Master Control design codes such as dauphine hands and Arabic numerals interspersed with dart-shaped hour markers.
