24 TIME ZONES AT A GLANCE

In view of rapidly advancing globalization, it is becoming increasingly important for pilots, frequent flyers and international business people to be able to keep track of things in different time zones. The Pilot’s Watch Worldtimer surmounts this challenge in particularly elegant fashion. The dial shows current local time. If the wearer passes through one or several different time zones, the time can be adjusted forwards or backwards in one-hour steps to show the new local time, even when crossing the International Date Line. The date simply moves in sync with the jumping hour hand. Once set correctly using the crown, the rotating black-and-white 24-hour ring enables the wearer to read off the time in all 24 zones, including UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). The 23 place names on the external city ring each represent a time zone. If local time is changed on the dial, the time shown by the 24-hour ring remains unaffected and the movement continues to run during the changeover. With its vertically arranged numerals, the triple date display is reminiscent of the altimeter found in an aircraft cockpit. The Pilot’s Watch Worldtimer is secured to the wrist by a black alligator leather strap with a folding clasp.
