Powered by the Tudor calibre 2784 (ETA), the movement is automatically wound and has provision for fast date adjustment and hack feature. When the crown is pulled out to the first setting, the date can be advanced by rolling the crown away from the wearer; pulling the crown out to the second setting activates the hack feature, the seconds hand will stop, the hands can be set; pushing the crown back in will then re-start the seconds hand. The hack feature allows the user to easily synchronise the watch to a time signal.
