Master watchmaker Johannes Jahnke has modified the ETA 2893 automatic movement To make both time-zones function on a 24 hour basis unlike the usual variant of one at 12 hours and only the GMT hand rotating once every 24 hours, Johannes has modified the gearing of the 2893. A rotating disc, in this variant of the C900, has the time-zones indicated by individual airport codes in a window at 12 O'clock. The same disc indicates the geographic location on the C900's magnificent 3-dimensional world map dial.

The C900 World Timer is an open series and may be ordered directly from Christopher Ward London. ... -sbbr.html ... -sbbr.html
