Andreas Strehler unveils the Sauterelle à heure mondiale with a phase of the moon indication. Inspired by the moon and its journey around the earth, Andreas Strehler has created masterpieces under the Sauterelle collection. In 2017, it has launched the Sauterelle à heure mondiale.
It has the patented Andreas Strehler remontoir d’égalité at 10 o’clock. At 8 o’clock is the 3D view of the northern hemisphere as seen from above the north pole. It rotates counter-clockwise once in 24 hours. This earth on the dial rotates under the Andreas Strehler’s familiar sapphire crystal minute ring,which here indicates nigh on earth. The watch has a ring with names of 24 cities, representing the 24 time zones. At the centre of the ring is a blue arrow.
Travel with Sauterelle
The conical gear wheels in the winding mechanism makes it a pleasure to manually wind the watch. Once the movement starts to work you see the remontoir d’égalité coming into action. Before embarking on your journey, you need to turn the watch around and pull the crown to the first position. You then set the blue arrow to London/GMT. Then you pull the crown to the second position and adjust the hands and earth to the correct time for GMT. Thereafter, GMT is your reference time and you are ready to take-off.
While setting the watch to local time, you can adjust the hour hand in one-hour-steps independantly from the minute hand, without stopping the movement. On the movement side of the watch, next to the crown, sits the world record phase of the moon.
The case is available in 18k red gold or platinum while the dial is silver with sapphire chapter ring. The hands are made of blue polished steel.
The Sauterelle à heure mondiale by Andreas Strehler is a Jules Verne tale in the reverse – it’s a voyage from the moon to the earth.
