Tissot T-Navigator 3000 Watch Gives Instant Access to 24 Time Zones

Magellan. De Gama. James Cook. Lewis & Clark. Navigators of legend who all relied on accurate instruments to keep their journeys of discovery on course. Today’s modern travelers are equally intrepid and demand the same accuracy from their instruments. The T-Navigator 3000 watch is the ultimate instrument for these voyagers, tracking all 24 world time zones with 150 cities and countries stored in memory.

The T-Navigator 3000 is like no other world-timer ever introduced. Using the tactile crystal technology (think ATM screen), so successful in the T-Touch, the traveler using the T-Navigator 3000 has access to any time zone literally at their fingertips. Apart from the “home time” displayed on the analog face, four additional “travel times” are on standby on the digital readout for quick reference. The watch also features a countdown timer so you know exactly when that flight will land, a stopwatch function, and two separate alarms, among other features.

Tissot has been navigating time zones since 1853, when it launched its first dual-time zone pocket watch. In 1953, the company introduced a world timer that offered the option of all 24 time zones.

The world was divided into 24 time zones in 1884 when representatives from 27 countries met in Washington DC to adopt a standard system of keeping time throughout the world. This was most notably needed in the US because, as expansion of the railroad linked towns together, it became increasingly necessary to eliminate differences in local solar time between towns in order to decrease the number of accidents. It is interesting to note that countries still determine what time zone they are in. For example: China, a country roughly the same size as the US and covering 4 time zones, elected to adopt only one time zone.

Cased in polished stainless-steel with linked steel bracelet or leather strap, the T-Navigator 3000 comes with a crimped bezel and black, grey or blue dial with white stylized modern roman numerals at the four quarters of the hour, and white-edged hands for heightened legibility. The case back is engraved with the map of the world. The T-Navigator 3000 retails for $525 on strap, $575 on bracelet.
