Specifically, the Green Special Edition features the so-called King of Chronographs' signature lugs, domed sapphire crystal, polished pushers, and trifecta of subdials: a minute chronograph at 3 o’clock, hour chronograph at 9 o’clock and permanent second indicator at 6 o’clock.

On the caseback, there are touches of color-matched teal on the movement’s column wheel and in the “Calibre Heuer 02” and “Swiss Made” inscriptions on the oscillating mass, visible through a viewing window. A black alligator leather strap with a folding clasp and two safety push buttons rounds out the design.
