    Re: FC Worldtimer - Comparisons?

    Hello,
    Aesthetically, it is an attractive watch, but functionally, not so much. This is especially so for all the cities obliterated from view by the huge date dial. I've not heard any complaints so either it is not a problem, or no one cares about the time in those places. It is not a true "Travel" world time watch because it has no independently setable hour hand; more a stay at home watch and see the times in other world cities (the Baume et Mercier version is a true travel world time watch, that's way its retail price was so high).

    Enjoy your watch.

    I just have the time set to Vancouver at all times, when I travel, I can just look at the relative time zones and at the same time, I still know the time at home (Vancouver), my relatives' (Hong Kong and Australia), and also my boss' (Geneve) and my clients' (Calgary, Toronto) and my associates' (Chicago, New York).

    I have never owned a travel world time watch, so I can't really compare, but as a traveller myself, I find it rather useful~ and I don't have to set it every time.

    The only thing is Daylight saving, it would be interesting to see how one would including daylight saving in the movement.

    Yep, and still awaiting an answer. Any reason or a major oversight?

    It is a major oversight, plain and simple.
