The hours and minutes of the local time zone circle around a raised, decorated dome located at the centre of the dial where the hour of another time zone is viewed through a large aperture.

An additional theatrical touch is a dial side rotor, visible beneath the dial’s colour-matched sapphire crystal hour ring.
