VOGARD has reached its 3rd milestone with the DATEZONER PILOT a watch that sets a new benchmark for world timers by combining date, time zone and chronograph functions.
The date is set via the bezel and is synchronised with every city on the bezel. Eventually, it always displays the right date even when you turn the bezel over the dateline, clockwise AND counter clockwise.
IATA airport codes
The bezel is engraved with UTC and all major metropolitan IATA airport codes. The bezel may be customized with your own favorite airport codes for a moderate extra cost.
The linking of the time zone with date is a world first in the history of Swiss mechanical watch making. This ingenious solution became possible thanks to the development of a complex, angled synchronisation wheel.
The calculation of the exact angle for the positioning of the wheel on an inclined plans is a secret known only to VOGARDs engineers.
Extra large hands
The Datezoner Pilot is equipped with extra large skeletonised hands in order to read all instruments instantly and to give the watch a very masculine look. The hands are covered with strontium-aluminates, a substance known for its strong fluoresence at night.
The date window positioned at 6 o'clock is extra large so that the date is very easy to read. Its functionality is enhanced by a day/night disc positioned over the date. The date changes clockwise and counter-clockwise when you turn the bezel over the midnight line.
The new Datezoner Pilot is available in 2 color variations.
