Share Replica Watches — Unveiled at the SIHH, the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph permits the user to set a new time zone using just the bezel.
The Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph is the only watch manufacturer to offer a watch that enables the user to set another time zone, together with the date and 24-hour hand, in a single movement.
All you need to do is push the bezel down, turn it to the desired time zone and release. The movement is conveyed synchronously to the hour hand and a smaller 24-hour hand that always shows whether it is day or night in the selected time zone. The date display is also synchronized correctly, regardless of whether the watch is advanced or turned back, and whether the 24-hour hand passes midnight.
The watch movement and the advance of the minute hand, however, are not affected, which has the advantage that the watch shows the correct time even after repeated functional tests. Press, rotate and release: setting the world time with a mechanical wristwatch could not be easier than with the city ring.
A system like the external/internal rotating bezel, now part of the IWC Aquatimer watch line, provided IWC’s engineers with a means of connecting the bezel with the gear train inside the Swiss replica watches. Rotating the city ring advances or turns back the white hour hand in one-hour steps and shows the time in the desired time zone. At the same time, the blackand-red 24-hour hand on the inner 24-hour ring shows whether it is night or day. Finally, should you cross the International Date Line, the date also advances or reverts by one day, depending on the direction in which the bezel moves.
Since the hour wheel is connected directly to the 24-hour hand and the date advance, all the displays can only be moved at the same time.
The Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph also solves the problem of summer time. The rotating bezel has a small “S” to indicate the names of cities that recognize summer time, such as London and New York.
Thanks to the new IWC manufactured 89760 calibre, this model has an innovative display that provides the user with a fast, intuitive means of displaying stopped times between 1 minute and 12 hours.
The hours and minutes recorded by the stopwatch can be read off on the totalizer at “12 o’clock” as easily as on any analogue timepiece. Stopped times up to 60 seconds are shown by the central stopwatch hand. The integrated flyback function allows wearers to return the running stopwatch hand to zero and to start another timing sequence immediately.
