The self-winding Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ adopts a logical and intuitive method of displaying two time zones simultaneously: the hours and minutes of the home time zone are displayed by peripheral, open-worked hands rotating around a raised, decorated dome located at the centre of the dial. The hour of the second time zone can then be viewed through an aperture at the centre of the dome. This jumping hour second time zone is displayed using a small 24-hour numerical disc mounted on the reverse of the watch’s Agenhor-developed AGH 6924 calibre. Only the current hour numeral is visible through the aperture, optically amplified to a bold, legible format by a magnifying element and brought into sharp focus by the mirror-finished interior of a cone that runs from the back of the movement through to the uppermost point of the dial. The clever use of the 24-hour disc means that no AM/PM indication is needed, keeping the dial free of superfluous registers. Two versions of the Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ are offered: one in titanium and 18K rose gold and the other in Anthracite DLC-treated titanium and 18ct white gold.
