Crafted in platinum and titanium or in steel, the timepiece comes in a round case structure featuring a singular reinterpretation by Hermès of classic Haute Horlogerie complications roaming across the hours of the world, as the “Travelling time” mechanism developed exclusively for Hermès provides a disc-type display of 24 time zones.

It holds a fantasy map imagined by Colliard for the “Planisphère d’un monde équestre” silk scarf. Here, the mobile and home time indication can be viewed via 12 o’ clock. All of this is made possible with the help of the Hermès H1837 mechanical self-winding movement. The mechanism powers the hours, minutes and dual-time display with city indication.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

Simplicity meets purism with the all-new Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante. This timepiece is equipped with a world-first complication that features two super-imposed hour hands: one in rhodium-plated gold and the other in rose gold.

How does it work? “Pressing the pusher at 8 o’clock causes the upper rhodium-plated gold hand dedicated to local time to jump one hour forward, thereby revealing the rose gold hand which displays time in the wearer’s place of residence, known as “home time”. Once the second timezone information is no longer required, pressing the crown-integrated rose gold pushbutton repositions the rhodium-plated hand on top of the rose gold hand in the same manner as a split seconds chronograph hand,” as mentioned by the brand. This complication makes the watch extremely user-friendly and perfect for globetrotters who travel between timezones.

The watch is available in a 40mm polished stainless steel case that features a “Milano Blue’ dial decorated with fine barleycorn guilloché pattern surrounded by the sandblasted minutes track. The watch is strapped to a polished stainless steel bracelet.
