Andreas Strehler - Sauterelle à heure mondiale

| No comment
After three years dedicated to the development of timepieces with moon phase complication culminating in the Lune exact model offering an incredibly precise moon phase indication which deviates just one day in two million years - a Guinnes World Record - and gives the age of the moon in days and further increments of three hours, Andreas Strehler is "back to the earth" with the new Sauterelle à heure mondiale.


The fascinating engine turned dial is available in blue or silver and can be matched to a red gold or platinum case whose typical shape has dimensions of 41.00 mm x 37.30 mm, or 43.40 mm x 47.20 mm if you include the crown and lugs.

Like all Sauterelle models, the Sauterelle à heure mondiale has the patented Andreas Strehler remontoir d’égalité at 10 o’clock which charges the escapement every second with the exact same amount of energy while indicating the seconds.




At 8 o’clock on the dial, under Andreas Strehler’s sapphire crystal minute ring, there is a three-dimensional view of the northern hemisphere as seen from above the north pole, rotating counter clockwise once in 24 hours, as the earth does.


On the movement side of the watch, there is a ring with 24 names of individual cities, representing the 24 time zones.

To set the home time, you just need to pull the crown to the first position and set the central blue arrow to desired time zone.


Then, while turning the watch and looking at the dial again, you can pull the crown to the second position and set the hands and the earth to the exact time, with the earth serving as 24 hour and day/night indicator.


To set the local time - imagine that you have reached your destination in a different time zone - just pull the crown to the first position and set the hour hand in one-hour-steps independently from the minute hand and without stopping the movement. Simultaneously, the hand in the middle of the destination-disk at the back of the movement is moved to the correct time zone. Home time and day/night indication remains visible at a glance on the dial.

And although in this model the emphasis is on the earth, Andreas Strehler’s world record moon phase find space on the movement side of the watch, next to the crown.


Winding the watch is particularly pleasing thanks to the use of true conical gear wheels in the winding mechanism. When the twin mainspring barrels are fully wound, a stop-works system limits the mainsprings to their sector of linear energy discharge.

Beating at a frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vph), the 206-part hand-wound movement offers a power reserve of 78 hours.





Completed by a hand-sewn alligator leather strap secured by a buckle made from platinum or gold to match the case, the Andreas Strehler Sauterelle à heure mondiale has a price of Swiss Francs 112,000 in red gold or Swiss Francs 125,000 in platinum. All prices are before local taxes. astrehler.ch
