Its both! Its gradient, lighter in the center, darker to the edges, but when you turn it it has a spotlight effect so to speak of two cones pointing to the center.

The steel 5711 does also but its more pronounced on the rose.

Big congrats Ken. You have the perfect trifecta of chronos - 5170, 5980 and platona. Amazing collection. Are we going to see a 5070p??
