Toolbox: Hugo Boss Black Watches – The Worldtimer Chronograph


BOSS Black Watches presents its first chronograph with universal time function: the World timer.

Previewed at Baselworld 2011, this timepiece is the ultimate embodiment of a vision of sport and luxury. The watch has a chronograph function with seconds and minutes display and a 24-hour counter. However, its special feature is the simultaneous display of two different time zones and its instant calculation of the precise time in 24 of the world's major cities. This easy-to-use functionality is activated by using a crown positioned at 10 o'clock. The crown moves a disc, allowing the time on the other side of the world to be calculated immediately.

Even more impressive than its technology are the aesthetic appeal and refinement of this piece. A true homage to travel, this timepiece has everything it takes to make a classic model: a seamlessly integrated strap, a screw-down crown with modern design, a characteristically high-end dial featuring the city names and a time calculation ring, aligned to within a tenth of a millimetre.

The design of the Worldtimer remains beautifully restrained. The hand indicating the second time zone is the only detail of bright, sporty red - a reminder that BOSS Black Watches is one of the few watch brands capable of successfully combining sport and luxury, as well as refinement and audacity.

The Worldtimer is available in an "All Black" version with a black dial, black PVD-coated steel case and black leather strap. A version with a silver dial, steel case and brown leather strap is also available for a more timeless look.
