Tuofei Watch Lecture Hall – Glashütte’s Original ‘all-around’ Gmt Display Principle Analysis

The practical function that is very modern in the watch is the GMT ± display. In modern society, in order to reach an agreement or communicate a problem between people in different countries, it is necessary to use voice and video, and even one party needs to go directly to the other country to communicate and exchange face to face. Then people in the two countries need to have an agreement on time. At this time, we need a table that can display two places at the same time to know the time when you are going to the place, or the time when you leave the place. With a watch with this function, you can accurately schedule itinerary, better arrange your time, and improve work efficiency. Based on this background, watches with GMT ± display function based on regional time difference appeared.

Background and common sense

 The so-called GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) refers to Greenwich Mean Time. Greenwich is the original site of the Greenwich Observatory in London, the capital of the United Kingdom. Since the beginning of the 19th century, as the world has become more frequent, continental Europe, the American continent, and the Asian continent have their own time zones. In order to avoid confusion, representatives of various countries held an international conference in Washington, USA in 1884. Greenwich London was selected as the central point of global time through the agreement. Greenwich Mean Time was born, and the earth’s meridian passing Greenwich was determined to be 0 degrees. At the same time, the principle of division of world time was born. The principle of division of world time is actually the division of the earth’s longitude, which is defined as the angle between the line connecting a point on the earth and the poles and the plane where the 0-degree meridian is located, and extends around the 0-degree meridian as the reference. In fact, the longitude is the angle between the planes of the two meridians, so that each region on the earth can be distinguished, and the time zone of each place is divided by this. Every 15 longitudes differ by 1 hour. This division method can be used to Every major city in the world is based on every 15 longitudes, which is an hour difference. For example, Beijing time is GMT + 8.

Appearance characteristics

 The first is the most commonly used 24 o’clock display function. The appearance feature of this function is to use a 24-hour hand to indicate the time at the location. This hand can be adjusted, including pointer, retrograde and window display.

 The second is dual time zone display. The appearance of this feature is that there are two small dials to display the time. These two time displays exactly indicate that one is your time and the other is your departure time. Of course, I have also seen the appearance of too many time zones, that is to say, there are more than two time display small dials, this kind of appearance is an extension of the dual time zone, I will not take out the details;

 The third is the world time display function. The appearance of this function is combined with the 24 o’clock display or dual time zone display function that I mentioned on both sides, and the abbreviated place name display of major cities in the world appears. This type of display is the most user-friendly, and you can always check the time around the world to determine your schedule.

Glashütte Universal Time

 In 2012, Glashütte introduced a perpetual calendar tourbillon watch with 37 time zones at Basel. Travelers wearing this watch can know the day and night time and travel time of their hometown when they are in any two of the 37 time zones in the world, and can accurately grasp the daylight saving time and standard time in order to continue to The East advances clockwise or returns to the West counter-clockwise. Using the watch’s perpetual calendar function, you can record travellers clockwise or counterclockwise, and the time difference between forward and backward during travel. All time and date changes of the traveler as they arrive at their destination are displayed.

Appearance characteristics

1. Set the 24-hour day and night time display at 6 o’clock as the home reference time that can always be maintained;
2. The destination time is displayed in the center of the dial, which records the local time of the passing place during the trip;
3. When the traveler chooses home time, he can choose the time zone where the long residence is located from 37 world time zones, and then adjust to standard time or daylight saving time. These 37 world time zones are represented by three-letter international airport codes (for example: FRA stands for Frankfurt, LAX stands for Los Angeles, and DXB stands for Dubai). Two windows at 8 o’clock are displayed, one for standard time and the other for daylight saving time. Travelers can set the perpetual calendar that comes with the watch to display the day of the week (9 o’clock), date (4 o’clock), month (3 o’clock) and leap year (3 o’clock);
4. The traveler can adjust the destination time of this watch according to the needs of the itinerary. If walking to the east, you can adjust the 2-point crown clockwise; if walking to the west, adjust it counterclockwise. . If the destination time is one day earlier or one day later, the five display functions of the perpetual calendar will also be adjusted simultaneously, especially from March 1st to February 29th or February 28th. It explains that the perpetual calendar of this watch can be adjusted in reverse, and the function is more humane.

working principle

 Glashütte’s world time structure is very innovative. The core 37 world time zones are printed on a disc with cylindrical teeth, and at the same time, grooves 59 for positioning are distributed inside the disc. We can see that these time zones are not evenly distributed, but are set according to the actual time difference between regions. Under normal running conditions, the time zone driving wheel in the middle position drives the time zone positioning wheel 87 having 4 teeth through the gear train. This wheel is precisely positioned by the positioning rod 60, and the rear end 65 of the rod cooperates with the positioning groove 59 of the time zone disk. The time zone wheel 87, which is fixed with the time zone positioning wheel 87, drives the time zone dial wheel 63, so that the teeth of the latter drive the cylindrical teeth of the time zone disc, thereby achieving the purpose of changing the time zone.

 The crown 32 at 8 o’clock is used to adjust the world time zone. The adjustment structure of the crown is similar to that of the ordinary crown. The adjustment drive wheel 77 is connected to the over-wheel 78 in the time zone wheel train. Turning the crown 32 drives the adjustment drive wheel 77 to pass the aforementioned wheel train structure to achieve the purpose of quickly adjusting the time zone.

Author Reviews

 After reading the basic structure and working principle of Glashütte’s World Time Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon watch, I feel that this watch is really very practical. Although I haven’t actually played with it, but by understanding all aspects of the function, it is suitable for travelers who often need it. The user-friendly setting of the universal time gives travelers a convenient and accurate guide, and at the same time, with the same user-friendly perpetual calendar, it makes people wearing this watch more practical.
