TX 310 Classic Retrograde Perpetual Calendar

TX watches introduced the TX 310 Classic Retrograde Perpetual Calendar during Baselworld 2010. This all new timepiece features a round 44.5 mm stainless steel "classic" style case and a domed crystal.

One of the sample pieces at the show already had a scratch on the crystal.) Even so, this is a really nice timepiece, especially considering its price. The case and dial are more classic than most of the watches in the TX collection, and I think this is a good thing. It offers something different. The look is very simple, and the dial is easy to read.

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.
