This universal time model is equipped with an automatic mechanical movement, bearing the Poinçon de Genève. Thanks to two meridian indicators placed either side of the centre, which indicates the local time in hours and minutes, we know the time simultaneously in two other cities (Hong Kong and New York in this picture).

This little technical marvel has a flamboyant dial with a rhodium-plated background featuring large transfer Roman numerals. The two meridians and the dial rim are encircled by an additional rose gold plate secured by four screws. The two hour counters are anthracite with red transfers at 3 o’clock and white transfers at 9 o’clock. Both have a day/night indicator.

Completed with a hand-stitched alligator strap with adjustable rose gold folding buckle, this rose gold model is limited to 88 pieces.
