37 time zones…
The 2011 Vacheron Constantin collection is now up and available for your browsing enjoyment, and I wanted to highlight a couple of my favorites now. First is this impressive new “World Timer”, with a movement so sophisticated that it is capable of indicating not only the full time zones, but also the partial ones (such as those offset from Universal Coordinated Time (UCT) by a half – or quarter-hour) — 37 time zones it total (if you knew this #, I am impressed!). Not surprisingly, this exclusive mechanism is patented by Vacheron Constantin. The display consists of three dials: a sapphire dial with a unique day/night shading; a metal dial with a “Lambert projector” type map; and a metal chapter ring.
