Nowadays, a single orbit around the globe can take as little as 92 minutes. However, travellers who would rather sit back and enjoy a less hectic ride in style are sure to appreciate the elegance of Mühle’s Teutonia World Time watch.
The Teutonia II World Timer is a watch for true connoisseurs! When George Francis Train travelled around the world in 80 days back in 1870, he became a major sensation, so much so that he was the inspiration behind Jules Verne’s famous novel. The same impressive journey can now be completed by an aeroplane in just a few days and by the International Space Station in a speedy 92 minutes.
If we live life in the fast lane, we run the risk of missing out on the journeys encountered during transit. Thanks to Mühle-Glashütte’s Teutonia II World Time watch we are reminded of the various states of time across the globe and how important it is to be aware of other destinations, people and cultures whilst travelling.
The World Time shows 2 time zones via the dial as well 24 different time zones across the globe with indication on a bidirectional bezel. The ‘city ring’, positioned on the outer edge of the dial, provides not one, but two impressive functions:
- It shows the time in an impressive 24 time zones worldwide when used in combination with the watch’s inner 24 hr scale and GMT hand
- Together with the gold-plated index at the 9 o’clock position, it reminds wearers of the zone time the main hands of the watch is currently set to.
The Teutonia II World Time features a stunning midnight blue, sunburst effect face and uncluttered dial. Legibility of different time zones is enhanced by the use of unpolished & raised surfaces to give the face a clear layout so that each of its different time measurements stands out and is easy to read.
The watch’s stunning dial is perfectly complemented by its high-quality stainless steel case featuring Mühle’s characteristic vertical finish, carefully applied by hand, and scrolled lugs, the top surface of which is finely polished to match the bezel. The carefully considered design allows the abundance of details on the dial to remain uncompromised, resulting in an impressive overall appearance and optimal functionality.
Mühle-Glashütte’s Teutonia II World Time watch is extremely elegant and highly functional but most importantly it is a reliable and easy-going travel companion you can rely on.
