No, it’s not the latest claim of the senior food supplement manufacturer DoppelHerz but a free interpretation of Goethe’s Faust, with the Swiss watchmaker Davosa for its new quartz model Cuore ² advertises. Twohearts souls the Cuore has square but in any case in the luggage: equal to two Swiss Quartzwerke Davosa installed in the new model. Optical functional Davosa will probably shake off the Tributes-manufacturers-image and score more independence to watch fans with something…
Davosa Cuore square quartz: A simple fourth pointer for a second time zone? PAH…!
Two Quartzwerke in a watch? Yes, read: in the Middle of the dial with solarisation, a small secondworks. Thesecond hour with rotating second wheel is screwed with her (the red arrow marks the hour position). The dial leaves enough room for a second time zone, which is displayed by two sword hands in the upper half of the dial. Die manually applied indexes are geared to the upper half of the dial out.
It all sounds more complicated than it is: ultimately Davosa tinkering here two time zones on a dial without on the 4th GMT hand, additional digital displays or similar. Accordingly there are also Two crowns for each timezone. The design provides while not just for readability, but at least for a varied look.

Assessment and alternatives to the DAVOSA Cuore square quartz
A clock with two Quartzwerken at the same time – something I see honestly for the first time.

Under the heading of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), you will find uncountably many automatic and quartz models, which simply remove a second time zone with a further central (and different colored) hour hand. This example of similarly expensive Seiko Sportura Kinetic GMT…

I’m pretty sure that the Davosa Cuore ² the opinions will not be divided. My personal opinion: With an ordinary four-pointer GMT clock would Davosa fallen is not done and would can withdraw maximum in nuances from the competition. The design will please certainly not everyone, I but think it is refreshingly different.
