Captain Dual Time
Let us leave the ocean for a moment to explore navigation in the air. Watches equipped with the GMT function are the direct descendants of the conquest of the skies. In 1955, ZENITH presented a multi-time-zone watch intended for air pilots; this model was inspired by ZENITH’S aerial navigation instruments that had been integrated into the dashboard of cockpits since 1920. The Captain Dual Time model is equipped with a GMT hand with a different design with a blue pointer that ensures optimal readability. This hand is set using a push-piece at 10 o’clock. This mechanism makes it possible to adjust the second time zone with a simple gesture, without risking disturbing the time on the watch.
