Around the World With The Ritmo Mundo Corinthian World Time

If there is one complication (or class of complication) that I have become an ardent fan of, it is the world timer. While this often takes the form of a secondary hand to track another time zone, this can also take the shape of a cities disc that rotates around (as with this Baume & Mercier Capeland), or even a second time register. When we have a secondary time register, this is often synchronized to the main time display, as on this Techne. With the Ritmo Mundo Corinthian World Time, that second register can actually be independently set.
