At the WWDC 2021 Developers Conference on Tuesday, Apple accidentally disclosed an unreleased Apple Watch dial called World Timer in the UIKit session. When introducing the new features of UIKit, the developer Duraid Abdul pointed out that the world time zone dial adopts a classic design, with 24-hour hands inside and the ability to track multiple time zones. Many people speculate that this “world clock” dial design will be launched with watchOS 8 this fall.
Apple Insider added that the classic world time zone watch will arrange 24 well-known cities by time zone on the outer bezel, while the internal 24-hour clock moves in sync with the main hand. Users can set the home city by rotating the outer bezel until their time zone city is at the top of the dial. At this time, the main screen displays the time of the current city, and the clocks of other cities can be known through the 24-hour bezel.

As for the history of the world clock watch movement, it can be traced back to the 1930s. With the adoption of major watch companies, this technology has also developed rapidly. And friends who are familiar with the history of watches should also be able to see the shadow of Patek Philippe ref. 5231J, Montblanc 4810 Orbis Terrarum, or Vacheron Constantin on the dial of the World Timer.
However, compared with traditional mechanical watches, the new Apple Watch dial also accommodates four complex functions in the corner area.
