The important things in life cannot always be kept in one time zone. To help its wearer keep tabs on time in a globalized workday, the TimeWalker World-Time Hemispheres simultaneously shows the different times in all 24 of the world’s time zones. The local time is shown by the hands, while the flange around the dial bears the names of 24 cities, each of which represents one of the 24 time zones into which our planet is divided. A 24-hour disc turns at the center of the dial to indicate the hours in the localities specified on the flange radially opposite the disc’s markings. While the time zones progress with the sun from east to west across the meridians of longitude, the Montblanc TimeWalker World-Time Hemispheres also brings the north-south axis into play, as it is available in Northern and Southern versions. These different perspectives naturally affect the time displays and require corresponding adaptations in the mechanical movements. Both models have immobile rings around their dials marked with 24 place names in the relevant hemispheres, but the 24-hour discs in the centers turn in opposite directions and are labeled clockwise or counterclockwise respectively.
