One Disk, Two Times, Luxury Replica Watches

Dual time zone watches are a type of time zone watch many friends are familiar with. Since the world time zone standard was determined at the International Longitude Conference in Washington in 1884, the concept of time zones has deeply affected the entire world’s activities in the 20th century. At that time, the most essential way to check time was with watches. The mechanical watch manufacturing industry also realized the need to develop a watch with a time zone function. Therefore, watches with time zone functions appeared in large numbers in the 20th century. Today, in time zones, the watch is even more exciting.

Some watches don’t play tricks.

There are two main types of time zone watches: the world time watch and the dual time zone watch (or GMT/UTC watch). There is an apparent difference between them. Generally speaking, world time watches will have 24 time zones worldwide (plus half-time zones, it will reach 37) displayed simultaneously on the dial. In contrast, dual time zone watches display only one additional time zone simultaneously: area time. In terms of movement structure, there are two systems. Luxury replica watches.

Rolex Cellini Dual Time Zone

Dual time zone watches are more flexible and straightforward than world time watches. Unless you want to fly around the world or do business in multiple countries, the World Time Watch will not be able to play its full role. As for the dual time zone watch, if the adjustment mechanism is cleverly designed, then it will be a perfect business travel watch. No matter where you go, you can adjust the dial hands according to the time zone rules. It can be easily synchronized. Look at the world time watch because when I go to another place, I don’t need to know the time in so many areas of the world, so that information will cause me trouble in reading time, which is also challenging. Takes up dial space. Of course, this does not mean that the World Time Watch is not good, but it needs to serve customers with such needs (obviously, I am not).

I only care a little about who made the first dual-time zone watch. I care more about the dual-time zone watches available now, which are better to use, more unique, and more affordable.

No need to spend more than 10,000. Several standard dual-time zone watches

Although dual time zones require some extra structure as an additional feature, they still need to constitute a large order of magnitude jump in price. In addition to electronic watches, mechanical watches with dual time zones have become very common. Several Japanese and domestic brands can be purchased for several thousand yuan. Most Swiss watch brands have such watches. On the one hand, thanks to the 2893 movement developed by ETA, the king of Swiss unified cores, many brands can launch dual time zone watches directly.

On the other hand, dual time zone watches are stacked on basic movements such as 2836 and 2824. The time zone module can also quickly realize the dual time zone function. Therefore, dual time zones have gradually become a straightforward and easy-to-purchase feature.

Tissot Junya series dual time zone watch

Tissot is the most well-known and affordable watch brand in China. Its relatively cheap price makes it more affordable for many people. Tissot watches can be purchased for two to three thousand yuan, and many choices exist. However, looking at some of Tissot’s watches in recent years, there are very few time zone watches with mechanical movements. The only impressive one is the 160th anniversary world time watch launched by Tissot in 2013. Other than that, Hardly seen anymore. Dual time zone watches almost always have quartz movements. Of course, the benefits of the quartz movement are self-evident. Accuracy and low failure rate are both excellent.

The Junya series dual time zone watch uses a Swiss-made quartz movement. At the 10 o’clock position of the watch, there is a sub-dial with a 24-hour scale, indicating the home time. The hour and minute hands in the dial’s center indicate the local time. The watch is priced reasonably. 3550 yuan. What needs to be explained here is that there is no such thing as a first-time zone and a second-time zone in a dual-time zone watch. Because it is easy to misunderstand, in English, Local Time and Home Time are used to indicate the local time (usually the most prominent one on the dial hour and minute hand indication) and home time, which is relatively easy to understand. In addition, not all watches with 24-hour indication are GMT watches, especially low-end quartz watches. It depends on whether it can be manually adjusted.

Hamilton Jazz Series Dual Time Zone Watch

Compared with other brands under the Swatch Group, Hamilton has more dual time zone watches. It uses dual time zones in high-end waterproof watches, the classic Jazz series, and other series of watches. There is use. The display forms are also quite diverse, ranging from window display to pointer display and integrated world time functions. Hamilton Jazz Series Dual Time Zone Watch H32585551, a classic men’s style, is also the most basic dual time zone watch.

The watch has ETA 2893-2 automatic winding movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. It is the GMT version of ETA 2892, so it can maintain a suitable thickness even after adding the corresponding time zone function (4.1 mm). It makes the watch easier to wear as a whole. There may be some reasons why this is not added to ETA 2824. This watch does not add other functions to the 2893-2. It has a standard 24-hour hand indication on the dial. The crown can adjust the hour and minute hands, date and time zone hands. The public price of the watch is 8,750 yuan. Compared with the ETA without the time zone function 2892 movement watch, the price is about 1,000 yuan higher.

Mido Helmsman series dual time zone watch

This is one of the few time zone watches and a dual time zone watch among all Mido watches and world time watches. This watch looks very complicated at first glance. It has a 24-hour world time zone mark and an additional 24-hour indicator hand, different from standard dual time or world time watches. Despite this, it is still easy to operate and read.

The T2 position at 9 o’clock on this watch indicates the home time zone and the 24-hour indicator hand indicates the home time. When you go from where you are to another area, you only need to adjust the hour and minute hands in the center of the dial. Still, it must be noted that when you adjust the hour and minute hands in the center of the dial, the 24-hour hand will also move accordingly, so you still need to change it back. Since the watch is equipped with the ETA 2893-2 self-winding movement, this movement does not have a world-time function in principle. Therefore, when you adjust the time zone dial, the hands on the dial will not move because there is no coherent structure. It is a dual time zone watch, which can temporarily display the time in two world time zones through adjustment when necessary. The public price of this watch is 9,100 yuan, which is close to the cost of a helmsman series week-date observatory watch.

In addition, many ETA 2893-2 brands launched more attra GMT watches, with prices ranging from 10,000 to 25,000, and even higher if they are precious metal models.

Classic dual time zone watch

Unlike GMT watches sold based on unified cores, high-end watchmaking brands often use their movements to carry GMT functions. These movement markets have tested them for a long time, becoming today’s classic dual time zone watches that are instantly recognizable. surfaceExplorer II and GMT-Master II

Most watch friends, when it comes to GMT watches, the first thing that comes to mind maybe these two Rolex watches. The Rolex Explorer II was first launched in 1971, continuing the spirit of the Explorer series. At the same time, for the first time, it used a very eye-catching orange pointer to indicate the second time zone. In 2011, the 40th anniversary of the advent of the Explorer II, Rolex launched a new version of the Explorer II watch. In addition to the enlarged size, the design was more modern, and the orange hands became a unique Rolex icon of the dual time zone watch.

GMT-Master II is Rolex’s professional GMT watch. The Rolex GMT-Master watch, launched in the middle of the last century, was designed by Rolex for pilots to understand the time between two places quickly. Since then, Rolex has upgraded it to the modern GMT-Master II watch, which is closely related to the Explorer II and has the same purpose. The most significant difference in its appearance is that the 24-hour bezel of Explorer II is fixed. In contrast, the bezel of GMT-Master II can rotate in both directions and has been given a unique two-color ceramic charm by Rolex. In terms of movement, the Explorer II uses the 3187 movement, and the Greenwich II uses the 3186 movement. The former uses Rolex’s patented Paraflex shock absorber, and the latter uses a KIF shock absorber. This reflects the essential difference between the two. The Explorer II serves professional adventurers, while the GMT-Master II is positioned for travel. It can indicate the time in three places. Both watches do not have a calendar quick adjustment function. The two gears adjust the hour hand separately, and the hour hand, minute hand, and time zone pointer are adjusted simultaneously.

Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT watch

The GMT watch has become a unique traditional function of Panerai. On the dial of modern Panerai, the time zone pointer appears from time to time. Compared with ordinary Panerai watches, they often only need an extra pointer. It is one of the simplest GMT watches. Panerai has launched four watches with a blue dial as the primary color, including two GMT watches, namely the Luminor 1950 3 Days Automatic GMT watch and the Luminor 1950 10 DAYS GMT AUTOMATIC ACCIAIO watch.

Both watches have their charms, and I think PAM00688 is more attractive for someone who advocates simplicity. This watch is a mini version of the previous 320 (44 mm) because the dial is 42 mm, and there is insufficient space to write nine at 9 o’clock. The watch has P.9001 automatic movement, providing three days of power. It is Panerai’s representative GMT automatic movement and is widely used.

This simple GMT watch style has become the standard for many dual-time zone watches. One hand can easily indicate the time in another time zone and is easy to adjust.

Unique features of dual time zone watches

Although we know that there are many dual time zone watches, and they are all straightforward, they all use the crown for adjustment, and not all of the above swiss models can make the hour hand jump forward in hours. This possible error is still a problem. Therefore, what kind of time zone watch is more convenient and distinctive has become a topic for many watch brands.

Ulysse Nardin Manager Series Dual Time Zone Watch

Once upon a time, Ulysse Nardin’s dual time zone watch was considered the most helpful style because Ulysse Nardin innovatively placed two buttons on the side of the dial, which can be directly pushed forward or backward in hours, overcoming many problems. The embarrassment that the dual time zone watch, adjusted by buttons, cannot be adjusted backward also improves the adjustment convenience. This convenient adjustment method and the disk’s simple time zone indication form have become unique among dual time zone watches. Although many brands today are constantly designing convenient dual time zone watches, the Ulysse Nardin dual time zone watch is still one of the distinctive watches.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso dual time zone watch

Regarding dual time zone watches, we have to mention Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso. The groundbreaking one core and two sides give Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso dual time zone watches a lot of room for development. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso dual time zone watch is less valuable than exciting because the fun of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso flip combined with the dual time zone function is clever. Each side displays the time independently. It will not be interfered with by any other unnecessary information; each side of the disk has ample space, and the time display is evident. Interestingly, Jaeger-LeCoultre has also launched a reverse design with one watch and two cores. The high-end fun is exciting.

2016 is the 85th anniversary of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso series. Therefore, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a batch of extraordinary creative reverso watches at SIHH. This Q3912420 watch is my personal favorite among them. The rose gold material is very Luxurious, with built-in Jaeger-LeCoultre 853 manual movement. The front is a full calendar plus moon phase, and the back also has a day and night display for another time zone time indication. Although there are many functions, they all have hidden adjustment buttons, so the overall appearance is still perfect. Perfectly coordinated.

Bvlgari Hora Domvs dual time zone watch

The Bulgari brand has launched a dual-time zone watch. Although it also uses an extra pointer to indicate the home time, all other information is displayed in a small window to avoid crowding the information on the disk. Unlike other dual time zone watches, it adds two additional windows to display the city and indicate the time zone. There are four remaining small windows. The one with AM/PM indicates the morning or afternoon of local time. The one with S/W indicates summertime or wintertime. The arrow indicates the local city. The window at 3 o’clock indicates the daytime or afternoon of home time. Night. The entire watch is adjusted through the crown and the button at 4 o’clock, which is very convenient.

Glashütte Original Senator Time Zone Watch

Of course, an example of a similar indication method is the World Time Watch, initially launched by Glashütte in 2015. This watch won the “2016 Golden Balance Award”. Through Glashütte’s original and exclusive design, this watch can gradually display the time in 37 zones. Despite this, it should be regarded as a very “smart” dual time zone watch. It cannot display the time in all time zones simultaneously, but it can switch to other time zones more quickly than ordinary dual-time zone watches and display the local time simultaneously. And day and night conditions during home time. In terms of design, the watch pursues a balanced aesthetic. Although there is a lot of information, it is well-organized under reasonable distribution.

When global trade and travel become the norm, more and more people are affected by time zones. We admit that other faster electronic devices can also solve this problem and are more accurate, but they can only display some of this information anytime and anywhere. Time zone watches still have their unique uses.
