Daniel Roth Metropolitain

Already well-known to seasoned travellers for its double display of the 24 time-zones thanks to a patented mechanism that is extremely easy to use, this model appears in 2004 with a new dial depicting a world map in the centre. The mechanism, providing a 42-hour power-reserve, drives the hour and minute functions, indication of the 24 cities with AM/PM aperture, and summer/winter time correction. The case comes in a choice of pink gold, white gold or steel, and the dial features a sunburst engine-turned pattern. It is teamed with a steel bracelet or alligator leather strap.
