Sailing is a challenging and exploration-based activity. In the medieval Europe, navigators and explorers sail to explore the world and treasures with sailing boats, nautical instruments and maps. Navigator 1 is a big watch (with a 50mm diameter watch face) with world time function. Sailing elements on the watch like nautical sextant, vintage map fonts and graphics comes from the history of “medieval sailing". Structurally, the watch mechanism uses two separate basic movements instead of a complex GMT movement. The movement on the left indicates the "hours" with a rotatable case. Another movement on the right shows the "minutes" with a fixed case. Normally, the arrow on the bezel of the “hour case" is pointed towards one’s hometown to show the home time. To know the time in another city, the user only has to turn the big crown to direct the arrow towards the city in question and the global time will show up immediately. The aim of designing Navigator 1 is to provide an eye-catching world-time timepiece for travellers with a classic style. Its unique external outlook and user-friendly GMT function showcases the user's personality.
