two time zones
Two time stories on one hand.
Dr. Ludwig Oechslin’s two time zones watch uses an adjustable time zone disk to display two time zones on a single hand (interactive watch). If the second time zone is ahead of yours (for example, +3 hours), you adjust the time zone disk until it displays this number at 12 o’clock. If the second time zone is behind yours, you subtract from 12, and set the difference at 12 o’clock. Oechsin’s solution is executed as a modification of the standard 31-tooth date disk on the ETA 2824-2 (learn more).
Individually manufactured in Switzerland.
ochs und junior manufactures about 10 two time zones watches per year. The case, dial, time zone disk, buckle, and hands are individually-manufactured by Peter Cantieni in Hinwil, Switzerland, and each two time zones watch is hand-assembled and hand-regulated by Romana Fux at the ochs und junior workshop in Lucerne.
