The Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph puts a new twist on functionality with a combination of three technologies that makes setting a second time zone as simple as turning the bezel.

For IWC’s engineers, creating the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph meant bringing together three technologies: the city ring from the Pilot’s Watch Worldtimer; a sprung rotating bezel, which cannot be moved inadvertently; and, from IWC’s latest Aquatimer generation, the external/internal rotating bezel mechanism that transfers the rotational movement to the inside of the watch. The result is a world time watch that shows its owner a new time zone and the time of day together with the 24-hour display and the new date, all with a simple twist of the wrist.

The watch movement and the advance of the minute hand, however, are not affected, which has the advantage that the watch shows the correct time even after repeated functional tests. Press, rotate and release: setting the world time with a mechanical wristwatch could not be easier than with the city ring.
