    why does the EMII Worldtimer include both Moscow and Dubai (both UTC +4:00)?

    Apologies if this has been broached before, but in looking at examples from Patek, IWC and others, you'll notice Cairo (UTC +2:00), Riyadh (UTC +3:00) and then Dubai/Moscow (UTC +4:00), but my Ball Worldtimer goes Cairo (UTC +2:00), Moscow (UTC +4:00), then Dubai (also UTC +4:00).

    Anyone know if there's some DST or geographical phenomenon with regards to Moscow and Dubai, or is this another error on the WT bezel (like the "Dahka" spelling preference)?

    For reference:

    Yeah... Just read they went to permanent daylight savings to improve citizen morale. Found a few other world timer examples on the old standard.
