One circle composes a watch. Another small circle sketches small second hand sub-dial. Twelve lines represent hours. Another twelve small lines show seconds. Finally three more sword-shaped lines add three hands. That's all it is – free from all ostentation or superficial embellishment. Hence the name Vanilla. Indeed it looks and feels like plain vanilla ice cream. 

This timepiece is built very thin - only 6mm thickness of the case, plus 3.35mm thickness of the domed mineral glass.

The surface of front dial is flat, actually. It is uplifted in a circle along midpoints on hour indices, thus creating a visual illusion the front dial is convex that it is curved or rounded like the exterior of a sphere.

Four lugs are curved downward so deeply that the overall convex feeling of front dial is maximized. The lug width is 20mm. 

1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 o'clock are printed in lines on the surface of dial. 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock are made of metal bars in either silver or rose gold. Hour and minute hands are sword-shaped. Independent small second is located at 6 o'clock.

The see-through display case back reveals ST17 movement polished beautifully in Geneva patterns. Initially ST17 is an automatic movement. Modified to be manual hand-wound after its self-winding rotor has been removed.
