inspiration
 In 1884, the International Meridian Conference in Washington decided to use the Greenwich Meridian as the starting point of longitude to divide the world into 24 time zones. In order to allow people to read the time in multiple time zones at the same time, watchmakers have since designed and created a number of different timepiece complex functions. In versions ranging from dual hour hand to world time display, the Sporting World Time watch incorporates one of the most respected features in the watchmaking industry. The Sporting World Time is equipped with an engraved dial showing all 24 time zones. It also comes with a day / night display, power reserve display and calendar. From New York to Paris, Hong Kong to London, and Tokyo to Dubai, the Sporting World Time watch fully showcases the art of travel. The wearer can simply travel around the world to turn the crown.
 Citizens of the Global Village are becoming more and more enthusiastic about all kinds of leisure activities in the field of sports and adventure, and their tastes have been continuously improved. The Sporting World Time watch has been born. The Sporting World Time watch is a subtle blend of timeless elegance and functional features. It is a good companion for long journeys, and the time in the world is under control.

Appearance and function
 The Sporting World Time is available in stainless steel and has a sturdy look. The bezel with six function screws adds a lot to this classic model. The dial with Roman numerals and the track-type minute ring is even more unique. This timepiece features a 45 mm diameter stainless steel case that is water-resistant to 100 meters, and comes with a cobalt blue alligator strap and a stainless steel pin buckle.
 This watch is equipped with a day / night display and can display both the local time and the second time zone time, the latter of which can be selected by means of a disc engraved with the names of 24 cities. The bright red seconds hand adds a lively touch to the dark blue lacquered dial.
 The internal RL939 caliber was developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre for Ralph Lauren. It has a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and a 40-hour power reserve.
