Russia's 11 Time Zones On A Wristwatch

Postby koimaster » October 20th 2015, 9:34am

The largest country in the world, Russia has 11 time zones - all of which can be conveniently read on the dial of the Russian Time wristwatch by independent watchmaker Konstantin Chaykin, best known for his spaceship inspired Lunokhod Bulat. Each of the time zones can be read according to city names representing each time zone, or by a map of Russia.


Central hour and minute hands on the Russian Time wristwatch show local time anywhere in Russia, while the other 10 time zones can be conveniently read off the displays on the top or bottom half of the dial.

Because each time zone is one hour from the next one, the time zones progressively advance in one hour intervals across the country. This is shown geographically with a Russian map at six o'clock, with the time zones corresponding to each area of the country outlined and shaded.

At 12 o'clock the time zones are denoted by the names of major cities in each time zone: Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Norilsk, Yakutsk, Chersky, Samara, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Anadyr, and Vladivostok. Because the two time zone discs are synchronised with the hands, advancing the time will also change the time zone display correspondingly.

They can't even figure out a quick change date. This bastard must take a month to set up.

Most Russkis are so jaked on brake fluid they don't know the time zone they're in, anyway.

Tough crowd! I reckon this is pretty cool, but I don't know why.

It's very beautiful, and I like it very much. It is very easy to set up, as long as you know what the time is in Moscow, or any of the other major cities in Russia. Unfortunately, you have to be a Russian gangster/thug or Putin -- ah, but I repeat myself -- to afford the $13.5K price tag. C'est le mort...

One would have to be pretty jaked on brake fluid to pay nearly fourteen grand on a Russian watch.
