With you all the way: Ralph Lauren Sporting World Time
Inspired by Ralph Lauren’s own love of travel and international exploration, the Ralph Lauren Sporting World Time watch offers a complication that is itself an invitation to travel. At the turn of a crown, 24 cities display the sequence of time around the globe.
The new creation will be on show at SIHH 2013. The timepiece takes you throughout the world as it displays 24 time zones, engraved over a disc. Measuring 45 mm in diameter, and beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), the watch is powered by the Calibre RL939 movement made by Jaeger-LeCoultre with a 40-hour power reserve.
Water resistant to100 metres, the watch features a sparkling deep blue dial, a bright red second hand and day/night indicator. The deep cobalt blue alligator strap with matching pin buckle adds an elegant sophistication and style.
Over the years, the division of time into various time zones challenged watchmakers to create a new complication that could represent all 24 global time zones within one watch, something much more complex compared to the simplified GMT dual time zone.
The Sporting World Time model also offers a day/night indicator, a power-reserve display and a calendar. From New York to Paris, London to Hong Kong and Moscow to Tokyo, the Sporting World Time evokes the art of travel by allowing its owner to circle the globe at the turn of a crown.
The Sporting World Time is said to appeal to a growing interest and taste among well heeled travellers for indulging in both sports and discovery.
