Description On the back of this watch is a revolving disc of gold indicating the different times in different cities round the world, the names of which are inscribed in gold on blue enamel. The Geneva-made watch was perhaps made for the Italian market as the major city at the top is Milan. This is a very early example of a world-time watch.
