Find Time in 37 Time-Zones with One Wristwatch


If you dream of travelling all over the world, Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has created the timepiece just for you. The Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time watch keeps its owner aware of the current time in 37 time-zones of the world. The list even includes the countries that have a half-hour or quarter-hour difference from Universal Coordinated Time (UCT).

The dial of the watch features the names of 37 cities, with cities having full time zones written in black, and the cities having half-hour or quarter-hour zones written in red. The day/night indication is also provided.

Despite its technical sophistication, the wristwatch is really user-friendly. The watch user has to select the reference time and place it opposite the black triangle positioned at 6 o’clock. This way he reads off the time in the reference city with help of the hour hand, or the 24-hour disc. And the time in other 36 cities is also readable.
