The PVD-coated black bezel is fixed. It has circular brushing on top and high polished on the side and underside. The unsigned crown has a pull-push mechanism.

The solid screw-down case back is imprinted with Macchina Sportiva. Macchina Sportiva is an Italian word that means “sports car.”

Seiko SSC771P1 Dial

The red dial has a honeycomb texture with alternating deep and bright red sections. It has three subdials at the 12, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. The subdials at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions are used for the chronograph function. The chronograph can measure up to 60 minutes with an accuracy of 1/10 second. The upper chronograph pusher is used to start the chronograph, while the lower pusher is used to reset it. The subdial at the 9 o’clock position has a hexagonal style with crosshair markings. It displays the seconds of the current time.

On the dial’s outer side, a tachymeter is printed in white over a red background. The little date window is located at the 3 o’clock position. It is a little difficult to read.

The dial face is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The hour and minute hands are both lumed, and there is a lume dot at 12 o’clock. The lume color is green.
