The new Caliber Xi movement is an automatic and features black gold in its construction. It has about 42 hours of power reserve and had the time with subsidiary seconds, and a world time indicator on a second 24 hour disc. A pusher above the crown cycles through the references cities on a partially exposes disc. The time for the city shown under the 12 o'clock hour indicator, is indicator at 3 o'clock in 24 hour format. Minutes for the second time zone are referenced via the main time's minute hand. A simple, but elegant system for offering a world-time complication.
The Zurich World Time watch will be about 40mm wide in steel, with a sapphire crystal and caseback window. The white dial is easy to read, contained in the tasteful, thin-bezeled case. Price will be 3,400 euros.
