Feature: TX 550 World Time Sport
June 4, 2009
The TX World Time Sport is great for keeping time in a second time zone. At the push of a button, you can select one of 24 cities from around the world. After selecting a city, the upper left (second time zone) hand moves to the correct time. In the lower right of the dial is the daylight savings time indicator. This hand is adjusted via the pusher on the left side of the case. You can toggle between "summer" and "winter" time on the lower display and the upper display adjusts accordingly.
The World Time Sport has a 45mm diameter stainless steel case, with both brushed and polished surfaces. The bezel is 18k rose-gold plated with a brushed finish. The crown and all three pushers are 18k rose-gold, and feature a polished finish. The bezel, hands and indexes all feature a bright Superluminova treatment. The crystal is a sapphire with a slightly beveled edge. Water resistance is 100 meters. The strap is a soft black rubber with a brushed stainless steel buckle. Movement is a German designed proprietary 6-hand quartz. Retail is $545.
