2012/06/11 - Fortis Limited Edition B-47 World Timer GMT

And yet it moves

Improved new technology enables to communicate in an international network on all continents.

More and more it is essential to know a certain time in a certain place in our world. The B-47 WORLD TIMER GMT with its specially engineered FORTIS caliber F-2022 is the solution 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.
