Silicium Hora Mundi

    The Silicium Hora Mundi displays 24 capitals symbolizing the 24 time zones in the world. The second time zones are adjusted by means of the push piece at 2 o’clock. The time itself is adjusted by means of a discreet corrector flush with the middle part of the case at 5 o’clock. The Silicium Hora Mundi’s dial is made of pure silicon, a material that makes up nearly 28 percent of the earth’s crust and remains the most common element on Earth after oxygen. Inside Information: The dial requires 50 separate operations to be completed.
