Timepieces for travel
At first glance, this ingenious watch combines classic and timeless shapes with a modern dial, but does not deliberately highlight its functional advantages. However, this timepiece not only has UTC function-a popular term now used to define a watch with independent adjustable dual time zone display, often referred to as GMT function. The Tortue multi-time zone watch goes beyond this popular feature since its inception in 1953, becoming a member of the ‘World Time’ watch family. This type of watch is even more precious. The dial usually has a dial engraved with the names of different cities to show the time in the time zone where these cities are located. However, in order to avoid overly complicated dial design, the watchmaker at Cartier Workshop chose to present the city name on the outside of the dial and display it through the window on the shoulder side of the Tortue multi-time watch.
The watch’s modular movement is based on the 1904 MC movement developed by the Cartier La Chaux-de-Fonds workshop. Time information. In order to avoid any complicated thinking, the time of the watch’s wearer is displayed by the main hand for reading, while the time of departure is displayed in a semi-circular window below the center of the dial by the day / night hand with the sun and moon signs. This compact device is connected to the pushbutton at 2 o’clock, which can display the time of the representative city corresponding to 24 time zones on a 24-hour basis. Not only that, the Tortue multi-time zone watch also inherited the design concept of the Calibre de Cartier multi-time zone watch introduced last year: taking into account the daylight saving time adjustments of different countries, another reference scale is used to display the 7-month effective daylight saving time To ensure the accuracy of the time zone time.
