This watch shows local time with the rose gold hand; the blued steel hand shows the second time zone (GMT). Contrary to other watches where two separate hands show the hours and the minutes, this piece only has one hand that shows the minute by means of the indexes between the individual hours. Time is shown in a 24h hour mode, the hour hand rotates once in 24 hours.
