Let’s go for a new Pitch Watch
Moritz Grossmann has just introduced the Universalzeit, a time zone watch.
The Universalzeit does not follow the traditional line of other watches with the same function, opting instead to present the time in six different zones of the globe simultaneously, through a jumper hours mechanism supported by an ingenious wheel of six discs, each inscribed with numbers from 1 to 24, corresponding to the 24 hours of the day.
The watch is housed in a generous 44.5mm diameter stainless steel case with a polished finish, smooth bezel, crown at 3 o’clock that has the main function of setting the local time to which the other six-time zones are indexed, and a push bottom at 10 o’clock, which, allows setting the local time through the hour hand, and sapphire crystal.
The dial with globe motif with parallels and meridians, features a shade of sunray blue, representing the oceans, while the continents feature a shade of salmon over which the name of some major cities in the world stands out in white tones, in the same colour as the background windows of the six-time zones – Phoenix, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Dubai, Tokyo and Singapore. Finally on the dial, polished faceted hands and applied lipstick hour markers.
The watch is powered by the In-house manual movement Caliber 100.7, which offers up to 42 hours of power reserve, which can be seen through its open case back, from which the handmade decoration detail stands out.
The watch is offered with a hand-stitched brown alligator leather strap at the price of €42,000.
