The Best IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph Replica Watch movement and the advance of the minute hand, however, are not affected, which has the advantage that the watch shows the correct time even after repeated functional tests. The movement is conveyed synchronously to the hour hand and a smaller 24-hour hand that always shows whether it is day or night in the selected time zone. The same thing applies to air travelers and pilots: no matter how often they change time zones, they can quickly show local time and then revert to home time. And since only one time of day is shown, it is impossible to mix up the different zones. The date display is also synchronized correctly, regardless of whether the watch is advanced or turned back, and whether the 24-hour hand passes midnight. It’s as simple as that. For example, if you wish to know whether you are calling your business associate in Tokyo or Mexico City during office hours or at night, you simply turn the city in question to the top of the dial and then back.All you need to do is push the bezel down, turn it to the desired time zone and release. Press, rotate and release: setting the world time with a mechanical wristwatch could not be easier than with the city ring.
The largest number of new IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Replica Watch releases this year at the SIHH 2016, came without a doubt from IWC. Not only the brand redesigned some of their most iconic watches within the Pilot’s collection, but they also presented a watch that is definitely worth talking about. The new IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph ref. IW395001, is the first in the world, that permits the user to set a new time zone using just the bezel. The hour hand, 24-hour display and the date also move automatically. Furthermore, this new watch is the only watch that enables the user to set another time zone together with the date and 24-hour hand, in a single movement. IW395001 features a stainless-steel case measuring 45 mm in diameter and 16.5 mm in thickness, a black dial and black calfskin strap by Santoni with a stainless-steel folding clasp. No other watch manufacturer has ever succeeded in making a world time watch that is so simple, practical and elegant. The new IWC Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph ref.
If you wish to set the IWC Pilot’s Watch Replica Watch to a new time zone, simply press down the city ring —the bezel— with thumb and index finger, turn the desired time zone to “12 o’clock” and release. When the ring is released, a spring ensures that it returns to its original position. It ensures that the bezel rotates only when pushed down and is thus protected against inadvertent rotation. Only then can the lock be released smoothly and the bezel turn in both directions.
It is important that pressure is exerted on two opposite sides. This mechanism is an extremely effective means of ensuring that the time zone is not moved inadvertently. Those countries with summer time are indicated on the rotating bezel by a small “S”. The inscription “UTC” below “London” shows the current Universal Time Coordinated. The detents on the rotating bezel ensure that it locks into precisely the desired position, or into the “S” necessary for showing summer time. The city ring itself was adopted from the IWC Replica Watch display: on the polished black ceramic rotating bezel are the names of 24 cities, from London via New York to Tokyo and Dubai, each representing one of the international time zones.For the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph, IWC’s engineers have combined and further developed a number of technologies. The sprung rotating bezel concept was first used for the Porsche Design Ocean 2000 in the 1980s.
