The new Geography’s colorway has been dubbed “Sparkling White,” and I think that’s an apt description. White dials can sometimes feel a little boring, but the black and blue elements, both now a bit more obvious, add contrast and visual interest. More importantly, however, is the structure of the dial itself, with an outer section that has been given a brushed treatment that plays against the stark white of the dial’s interior. Sector dials are all the rage right now, and this yet another riff on that theme, and I think it’s implemented really well.
The Geography is powered by “caller” GMT movement by Sellita or ETA, depending on availability (the watches are built to order, with delivery currently running into December). This type of GMT movement, with an independently set GMT hand rather than local jumping hours, is useful for keeping track of a second time zone from a stationary point (the opposite is better suited to frequent travelers). Even if you don’t make use of the GMT feature, however, the Geography is still just a really nice looking watch with elegant vintage cues. Bravur
