Lutecia, the centrepiece of the SAINT HONORE collection, now comes in an exclusive GMT version. In watchmaking, GMT refers to watches that display a second time zone. Also known as Dual Time, this new quartz complication adds a GMT hand that completes a rotation every 24 hours, allowing the wearer to view the time in two different places on the globe simultaneously.
The first SAINT HONORE timepiece to feature a GMT complication, the new Lutecia will enthral globetrotters around the world. Its dual time zone indicates the time in the country in which the wearer is located, on the main dial, while simultaneously displaying the time in the country of origin on the disc around the dial, which has a 24 hour graduation in contrasting colours (blue/grey in the steel version pictured) to represent day and night. All of the watch functions (time, GMT time, minute, date) are easily activated using the crown.
With its “cushion” shape and round opening, the 41 mm case is available in several finishes: stainless steel, two-tone, rose gold, or PVD with a titanium or bronze finish. The sapphire crystal offers a stunning view of the magnificent dial with its exceptional finishes, which include applied steel hour markers, oversized Roman numerals, the prestigious GMT mark, an auxiliary 24-hour counter with day/night indicator and a large date aperture at 6 o’clock. The "glaive”-style hands are covered in luminescent white pigments, making it easy to read the time in all light conditions. The GMT hand is a different shape and thickness, ensuring the two time zones can be distinguished at a glance.
As ever, SAINT HONORE designed this timepiece with perfect readability in mind. Incredibly, the GMT hand also serves as a compass: when the watch is held parallel to the ground and the hour hand is pointing at the sun (previously adjusted to the same time as the 24-hour GMT display), the GMT hand indicates north in the northern hemisphere. Mounted on a brown or black leather strap, this new GMT timepiece is ideal for both elegant urbanites and keen travellers and adventurers, who will be thrilled to wear this unique complication. Resolutely upmarket yet positioned at a very competitive price, the Lutecia GMT is a prestigious addition to the SAINT HONORE collection of men’s watches.
