TIME HERE AND TIME THERE
Across the world, the sun is rising, while here the day is drawing to a close. While on the horizon the sun is setting into the night, on the Cellini Dual Time it gradually appears in the aperture at the bottom of the dial. The Cellini Dual Time model grants its wearers the gift of temporal ubiquity. With a quick glance at the dial, travellers are simultaneously aware of the time here and the time elsewhere. The small gold-rimmed sub-dial at 6 o’clock shows the minutes and hours in a faraway part of the world: the land of their loved ones when they are away from home, the location of business associates on other continents. To differentiate daytime hours from night-time hours, a sun or moon symbol transits the aperture at 9 o’clock on the sub-dial. The large centre hands, shaped like two-edged swords, always accompany the wearers on their journey. The hour hand can be set independently by successive “jumps” to adjust to a new local time zone, without disturbing the functioning of the watch or the chronometric precision of its self-winding movement.
The Cellini Dual Time model is offered in four versions: with a black or silver dial featuring a “rayon flammé de la gloire” guilloche motif, and with a 39 mm case in a choice of 18 ct white or Everose gold. It is mounted on an alligator leather strap, remborded and stitched, in black or brown depending on the model, and fitted with an 18 ct gold buckle matching the gold of the case.
