Alessandro Salvatore Worldtimer Watch

Australia based young watch brand Alessandro Salvatore presents a world time watch inspired by the horology complication created by Swiss watchmaker Louis Cottier in 1930s. The mechanism was first seen in 1937 on a unique piece, a rectangular watch on display at the Patek Philippe Museum, Reference 515 by Patek Philippe.
The Alessandro Salvatore Worldtimer Watch is powered by the ETA 2893 Swiss Automatic Self-Winding movement. This 21 jewels movement, beating at the rate of 28,800 vph has a power reserve up to 42 hours.
The 50mm massive watchcase features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with glare reduction on both sides. Automatic winding movement can be admired through the transparent case back. Available in Silver, Gold, Rose Gold and Black, the DLC-Coated stainless-steel case is a hefty 50mm in diameter and water-resistant to 100 meters. It also has a soft iron inner case that protects the movement against magnetic fields.
The Alessandro Salvatore Worldtimer features an internal bezel using a peripheral 24-hour ring, which makes one full revolution a day to show local times across the world’s 24 time zones simultaneously. The ring is divided into coloured and white sections, which makes it easy to determine at a glance where in the world it is daytime and where it is night, and can be set easily by using the 2 O’clock crown. The names of 24 world cities representing the global time zones appear on a city ring that surrounds the 24-hour ring. In addition to the world time function, it includes a date function.
The user sets the time-zone bezel to align their home time zone with the correct hour of the day on the 24-hour ring. As time passes, the 24-hour ring rotates. The point where the 24-hour ring lines up with the time zone you’re looking for shows you the hour of the day.
The brand has launched a Kickstarter online crowd fund campaign to fund the initial mass production of the Alessandro Salvatore Worldtimer. Kickstarter price starts from AU$ 1,299 (Appx US$995)
