More than 18’000 visitors have discovered the exhibition “Tomorrow the birds will sing” since the opening on July 17th. This event by the Swiss filmmaker Eileen Hofer, organized with the support of Jaeger-LeCoultre, is still to be seen at Chaplin’s World, in Corsier-sur-Vevey (Switzerland) for a couple of days.
Plunge yourself in the daily lives of different generations in a Cuban ambiance, all touched by Charlie Chaplin’s universe. Let’s meet at the Manoir de Ban until August 17th to discover this beautiful exhibition!

However, there are small elements that could make or break a world timer dial. Many have dials with maps printed on these that are inclined to appear flat and a little dead but not in the case of the Geophysic Universal Time. Here, the map seems to be piled onto the dial just like a bas-relief and gives the dial a few texture. The applied markers are also a nice touch.Another common complaint with world timers that plenty of collectors have are the palms, which are inclined to be modest. This is again a result of design since the actual time-telling dial is very small and the hands must be limited to this radius. If you have discovered the hand span to be a problem in other world timers, then the Geophysic Universal Time may not be the ideal watch for you. The sword shaped hands are brilliantly polished and filled with Super-LumiNova. In practice, legibility should not be an issue in many situations.The Geophysic Universal Time is housed at a 41.6mm steel case. The case details and construction are rather straightforward but well implemented with a polished bezel, caseband and lugs, and a simple fluted crown. The new upgrade, while seemingly small on paper, makes a significant visual difference. The Geophysic Universal Time is now offered on a fine-link metal bracelet.
