Cross dual dial watch WUX07

I'd known about the company Cross for a while, but only as a manufacturer of fancy pens. It turns out that they also make watches!

Cross started out in 1846 as makers of fine writing implements. In 1997, they released their first range of time-pieces with a limited distribution, with the range being expanded the next year.

The watch has two Japanese quartz movements powering the two different size dials. I was travelling across time-zones today so thought I needed something that could cover both zones at the same time. The centres of the dials are covered by silver circles, the top dial also having the Cross logo. It is 100ft water resistant (30m), and it is unusual to see them using imperial units.

I think the model number is WUX07, but the watch also has the number 010.769 on the back.
