Sauterelle à Heure Mondiale

Andreas Strehler 2017

Men's

Sauterelle à heure mondiale square

 

 

Jules Verne made his journey "from the Earth to

the Moon". Andreas Strehler took the opposite direction, beginning his

odyssey with the Moon, and a series of exceptional precision moon phases, and

ending it on Earth with the Sauterelle à Heure Mondiale complete with the

master watchmaker's patented remontoir d'égalité. At 8 o'clock on the dial, a

three-dimensional representation of the Earth's northern hemisphere, as seen

from the North Pole, makes a complete counter-clockwise rotation in 24 hours.

Turning the watch over to the movement side reveals a central hand which points

to the names of 24 cities, representing the 24 time zones, on a circular ring.

Strehler's stroke of genius is that the three indications of local time on the

dial, home time on the reverse side, and the corresponding time zone on the

globe are all synchronised; one glance suffices to situate oneself in time. The

much-admired "lune exacte" precision moon phase is also visible on

the back. Requiring adjustment by a single day after two million years, it adds

the final flourish to Strehler's high-flying mechanics.
