ORIS Greenwich Mean Time Limited Edition
We’re in 1876, when Scottish born Canadian engineer, Sir Sandford Fleming got really frustrated when he missed his train, because the printed schedule listed p.m. instead of a.m. He proposed a single 24-hour clock for the entire world, he suggested that time zones could be used locally, but they should be subordinate to a single world time, the Cosmic Time. It was 130 years ago, in 1884 that his suggestion caught the attention of the world at the International Meridian Conference. It is this moment that ORIS is remembering with the Greenwich Mean Time Limited Edition.
Featuring one of Oris’ most advanced module movement to date within a redesigned Artelier casing, the new Oris Greenwich Mean Time Limited Edition incorporates a special feature which allows its wearer to jump back and forth between alternate time zones with the press of one of its dual pushers.
Designed to commemorate the introduction of GMT, a subtle globe depicting the world’s time zones lies behind its secondary time display.
