Diesel DZ4028 Chronograph

Today, I'm wearing a chunky watch from the fashion brand Diesel.

This model is one of their chronograph watches, and is called the DZ4028 (or DZ-4028 or DZ 4028 depending on where it is written). The watch has a rounded square case, with very noticeable (and very solid) protrusions from the top and bottom of the case over the ends of the strap. The strap is also a chunky design, being made from thick black leather, and it has a Diesel branded buckle.

The watch has a 3 hand dial, but as with many chronograph watches, the main seconds hand is for the stopwatch function, and the seconds for the time are shown on a separate small dial. There are three small dials on the face with the bottom one covering seconds, and the other two (left and top) covering minutes and hours for the chronograph. There is also a date window at the 3 o'clock position. The face design is very recognisable as Diesel with the combination of black and splashes of colour, and the use of different styles of markers around the dials.

The back covers the usual information (solid stainless steel, 10 bar/330 ft water resistant)  and has the model number. There is also the Diesel name and the man with mohawk logo for the Only The Brave parent company but without the usual Only The Brave text.

For date, I've not found this watch in stock for sale in many places, which suggests it's not a current model. Based on the design, I would therefore reckon that it is either late 2000s or early 2010s.
