Gevril 5850 Men’s Serenade Dual Time Zone Automatic Watch


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Gevril WatchesIn the Gevril watch collection, each pillar pays tribute to New York City. For the Avenue of Americas, it’s the long street that winds its way all through Frank Sinatra’s town. The Gevril Serenade 5850 model features the characteristic Deco styling with the wrist hugging case and curved dial with the jaunty scripted Arabic numerals marking the hours. However, more than just one watch, the Serenade qualifies as two.

In addition to keeping time where you are, the Serenade will also let you know what time it is in London or Hong Kong or whichever city you choose for your second reference. One of the most practical of all complications, the two time zone watch comes in handy for travelers, business people and those with family in other parts of the country or world. Instead of counting the time difference on your fingers, just glance down at the Serenade before you make that phone call to ensure it’s a convenient time for your recipient.

In a luxurious 18K white gold rectangular case with 44 x 34 mm dimensions, the Serenade 5850 features a gorgeous dial decorated with 18K white gold numerals. While the majority of two time zone watches mark the second location with just another hand concentric to the hour and minutes hands, the Serenade goes the extra distance in both functionality and design. An elegantly designed skeletonized blue second time zone hand links to a day-night indicator at 9 o’clock so there isn’t any guessing whether or not it’s 12 o’clock in the afternoon or it’s midnight. Another day-night indicator at 3 o’clock for the first time zone adds convenience as well as balancing out the design.

The white disk in the corresponding windows indicate daytime, while the blue disks indicate nighttime. Every detail is considered with convenience in mind. A pusher on left side of case at 10 o’clock clicks the skeletonized second time zone hand into the correct position so you can adjust the hour before you leave for the airport or as the jet’s wheels touch down on the ground. Conveniently, the date at 6 o’clock orients you to which day you’re in because what use is the time if you’ve got the date wrong.

While sometimes watches with a lot of complications on the dial can come off as messy and hard to read, the layout here is easy on the eyes to catch the desired information at a glance — which is the ideal situation. The Gevril Serenade 5850 is limited to 50 pieces and comes with a Louisiana crocodile bracelet with an 18K gold deployment clasp buckle.

Powered by an automatic movement with a 40-hour power reserve, the Serenade 5850 is right on key no matter what part of the world you’re in.

by John Sealander  

The Fortis F-43 isn’t just the world’s first mechanical GMT alarm chronometer with dual power reserve.
It’s the only one!

Fortis WatchesFortis Mens 703.20.92 LC05 F-43 Flieger Limited Edition Chronograph Alarm GMT Chronometer C.O.S.C. Dual Power ReserveFortis has a long history of innovation and technical achievement, but they’ve outdone themselves this time. The new Fortis Limited Edition F-43 is not only the world’s first mechanical GMT, alarm, chronometer with two separate power reserves, one for the movement and another for the alarm complication; it is the only one available anywhere. Moreover, this amazing dual-time alarm chronometer is fully certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, a formidable achievement in its own right.

Few timepieces ever produced have been able to display the wealth of information provided by the F-43 in such a readable, easy-to-understand fashion. With a dedicated GMT window at 12 o’clock, a large triangle-tipped hand to indicate the alarm time, two separate power reserve indicators for the alarm and time functions, along with a date window with alarm “on-off” indication, this watch has it all. There is also a free-running small second hand at 9 o’clock; an AM/PM indicator at 1 o’clock, and 30-minute and 12-hour subdials for timing virtually any length event.

The mechanical complexity of the F-43 is unprecedented. The watch is powered by a proprietary 39-jewel Fortis calibre F 2012 alarm GMT movement. There are two independent spring barrels to power the alarm and time functions, along with a premium Incabloc shock absorber. There are four convenient protected stainless steel pushers to control the time and alarm functions and scratch resistant sapphire crystals on both sides of the watch.

The impressive 43mm two-piece stainless steel case is water resistant to 165 feet and has been fitted with a spectacular blue padded crocodile leather strap that matches the embossed blue numbers and indices on the silver opaline dial. Only 100 of these amazing timepieces will ever be produced. If you’re the type of person who appreciates mechanical perfection, you won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to acquire the world’s first and only mechanical GMT alarm chronometer.

Gevril Men’s 5850 Serenade Dual Time Zone Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Gevril’s Sensational Ensemble

Gevril WatchesJacques Gevril traveled to Spain with watchmaking partner Pierre Jaquet-Droz in 1758, carrying an assortment of musically themed complicated clocks and watches to present to King Ferdinand VI. The king was mightily impressed and bought everything the two men carried. Jaquet-Droz returned to Switzerland while Gevril was appointed Spain’s royal watchmaker, based in Madrid, where he resided for many years thereafter.

Had the Gevril Serenade 5850 existed more than two centuries ago, it might have been the legendary watchmaker’s ideal timepiece during his Spanish sojourn. A traveler’s watch at heart, the Gevril Serenade 5850 from the Gevril Avenue of Americas Collection features a dual time-zone complication with day-and-night indicators and a date function. The primary time zone is represented by central second, minute and hour hands, all in white gold; the hour hand of the second time zone is blue and skeletonized, which is an effective juxtaposition.

Each of the time zones has a corresponding day-and-night disk that indicates if it is daytime or nighttime in the respective time zone – the white part of the disk indicates a.m. hours, while the blue part denotes p.m. hours.

Deco styling is a signature aspect of the Avenue of Americas collection, and the Serenade encapsulates the best of the art movement’s qualities. The 44 x 34 mm curved, rectangular case and bezel in 18K white gold are a dapper duo. The dial, also curved, features a profusion of silver guilloche, while the Arabic scripted serif numerals, also in 18K white gold, add a glamorous splash. The watch’s functions are purposeful, and inside, a modern mechanical engine with a 40-hour power reserve keeps it beating – indeed, a sensational ensemble.

The use of precious metal is not limited to the case: the Serenade 5850 houses a 22-jewel automatic movement with a guilloche-engraved 23K white-gold rotor, visible through the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback. The black Louisiana crocodile-leather strap fastens by way of a folding deployment clasp, also made of 18K white gold.

The Gevril Serenade is also available in 18K rose gold or platinum. All three versions are limited to just 50 pieces worldwide.

by John Sealander  

Classically Styled for Continental Travelers

RSW WatchesRSW Mens 9140.PP.PP.1.00 Consort Collection Dual Time Black Dial Oval WatchThe classic elegance of the RSW Consort is something that is appreciated in every time zone. The clean lines, functional dual time zone dials, and effortless beauty of this watch has universal appeal for watch aficionados around the world.

Instead of a second hour hand like many dual time watches, the Consort has an independently set second dial at the nine o’clock position. Both the traveler’s departure and destination times zones are clearly delineated, and with the use of this smaller, subordinate dial, there is never any question about which dial is showing local time. There is also an easy-to-read big date display at the six o’clock position, along with a small continuous second hand.

You’d expect this perfectly proportioned timepiece to have something equally appealing on the inside, and it does. A precision Swiss made ETA 902 movement powers the watch, while a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and rugged stainless steel case protect it.

The RSW Consort Collection is available in a variety of finishes, including solid stainless steel, rose gold PVD, and stainless steel set with up to 74 diamonds. The Consort Black Dial Oval Watch comes equipped with your choice of a matching stainless steel bracelet or fine leather strap.

If you’re a worldly person with a love for travel, you’re going to want to make the RSW Consort a permanent part of your travel plans. To acquire one of these classically beautiful creations, contact an authorized RSW dealer today.
