FORTIS B-47 WORLD TIMER GMT Limited Edition

Swiss watch brand FORTIS presents a perfect world traveler watch on the occasion of its 100th anniversary. The B-47 WORLD TIMER GMT with its specially engineered FORTIS caliber F-2022 is capable to monitor three different time zones simultaneously. Equipped with an automatic movement this practical world timer is independent from batteries, as the wearer generates the energy by the movements of his wrist.

Three time zones can be monitored at once. The first by using the center hands, the second by a rotating blue dial disc showing the continents. The earth seen from space is turning counter-clockwise, just like the authentic rotation of the earth. The red line represents the zero meridian in Greenwich/ England and indicates as a rotating disc hand the second time zone on the inner 24 hour scale. The current time of every time zone can be seen at a single glance. The 24 city names engraved on the bidirectional turning bezel represent the 24 different world time zones. The 3rd time is indicated by setting the bezel on “home” time.
To commemorate the centennial this edition is coming in silver and black design, each limited to 2012 pieces. Both models appeal through their precise and well thought design. The eye catcher is of course the center dial part representing the Earth as seen from the North Pole, with all 24 time zones indicated. Like the earth itself, the globe is turning anti-clockwise and applies to the 24 hour scale next to it.
