Porsche Design has launched several new watches for the BaselWorld2019. They have integrated for example unique time-zone functions for global travellers.
– Porsche Design’s 1919 Globetimer UTC makes it very easy for frequent travelers not to lose a moment of precious time. The local time can be conveniently set with the aid of the ergonomically shaped, optimally positioned pusher. Each press of this button causes the short, local-time hour hand to advance clockwise one position. When flying east, each press of the “+” button advances the second time zone by an interval of one hour. When flying west, pressing the “–” button causes the UTC hands to move in the opposite
direction. All the while, the UTC hands automatically move, remaining in synchrony, the company says.
The 1919 Globetimer UTC is part of the exclusive 1919 watch collection and is available as of September 2019, in four model variants, starting at a price of 5,950 euros.
