Ochs und Junior announces the Due Ore British Racing Green

Last Updated: December 24, 2023Tags:

Ochs und Junior is excited to announce the newest colour in the Due Ore line-up, British racing green.

What was the motivation for the design?

A GMT hand are often the most used way to read the second time zone. This configuration is usually set up as the 4th hand on top of the hour, minute and seconds. However, GMT watches are also divided into two kinds, confusing the whole thing.

Ludwig Oechslin wanted to read the local time and a second-time zone with a glance. His solution was not only ingenious but also very simple.

Mechanics

Ludwig Oechslin replaced the standard ETA 2824-2 31-tooth date disk with a 48-tooth, user-adjustable time zone disk to make this possible.

Reading the functions

The first time zone is straightforward; you’re just reading the markers. The second time zone would be reading the adjustable time zone disk. For example, if the second time zone is ahead by 3 hours, you adjust the time zone disk until it displays the number at 12:00. If the second time zone is behind, subtract. Do note that this is not a 24-hour solution similar to other GMT solutions, you need to take into consideration if it’s morning or evening.
