Features of equal importance include the movements merging of the melodic, chime alarm setting showing a sub-dial at 2 oclock that indicates the hour and minute alarm setting with a countdown indicator positioned above 10 oclock. The countdown indicator is based on a 24-hours mechanism, allowing the timepiece alarm to be set 24 hours ahead. It calculates the time left on a 24-hour scale until the alarm chimes. This permits easy reading of whether the alarm is set for a.m. or p.m., with the hand at 9 oclock denoting whether or not the alarm is activated.
Also showcased is the important dual time system with the instant time zone adjustor; the sub-dial located above 6 oclock displays the 24-hour dual time functions. This patented dual-time function permits time zone adjustments forward and backward by a simple press of the pushers plus (+) or minus (-) to change the position of the hour hand. The original home time, or reference time, stays displayed while the date, alarm and countdown adjust automatically when a time zone adjustment is made. The second time zone is synchronized with the oversized date, as well as the countdown function.
