This unique world timer displays 24 different time zones with a nocturnal view of the Earth, showing twinkling city lights across the globe.

A half globe

The Arnold & Son Globetrotter Night features a half-globe that is fixed using a sculpted arch and is positioned under a spectacular crystal dome.

Three-dimensional map

The three-dimensional map features raised parts that have been colored a deep-gray with a galvanic treatment and then hand-lacquered in a dark-gray color. The oceans are lacquered in a shade of gray/blue, while the twinkling lights are hand-applied silver sparkles.

24 different time zones

A sapphire crystal ring around the globe indicates the 24 different time zones. The daylight hours are transparent, while the night-time hours have been darkened using a special treatment. The time is read geographically following the position of the continents.

Easy-setting mechanism

The timepiece is powered by the A&S3022 automatic manufacture movement, which has an easy-setting mechanism with a three-position crown. The first position winds the movement, the second adjusts the local time in one-hour increments (in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions), and lastly, the third position regulates the hours and minutes along with the planet’s rotation.

Northern hemisphere

The Globetrotter Night shows the Northern Hemisphere, but a Southern Hemisphere version is available on request at the same price.

The Brand
