Laine V38 is powered by Vaucher 5401 with highest level of finishing made by Vaucher. In addition tungsten rotor is engraved inhouse with similar motive as in G3 dial. As watch diameter is 38mm and thickness only 9mm it is answer to customers who prefer smaller case size than would be possible with Unitas based movement as in Gelidus line.
V38 can have all the same dial options as G3 or GG3: guilloche center with frosted outer dial, triple guilloche, Moonfrosting and meteorite.
Hands are made again from steel, but in this model hands are made inhouse from thicker material, then filed by hand to have round profile and polished to mirror polish.
