The new Andersen Rodinia World Time GMT watch pays homage to the long-gone Rodinia (misspelled “Motherland” in Russian,) a supercontinent that existed between 1100 and 750 million years ago, was torn apart by tectonic forces and later reassembled as the well-known Pangaea.
Powered by the Technotime AG 600 automatic caliber (the movement is visible through a sapphire-covered display back, but, frankly, there is nothing really interesting to look at,) the watch features a split-dial interface.
The inner part of the dial is a chased blue gold disk with a military-style 24-hour scale on its edge. Featuring day and night indication, the dial makes one full rotation in 24 hours indicating current time at a given time-zone, which is represented by names of 24 cities printed on the outer white rim.
The main time zone is indicated with a pair of polished A-shaped hands.
Although the hour and minute hands are cut to different sizes, the difference seems to be not particularly impressive, which makes reading time somewhat difficult until you get used to it.
The whole construct is enclosed in a moderately-sized case 42.40 millimeters in diameter. Done in a mix of rose gold (bezel and the fluted sides) and white gold (the horns and the winding crown,) the case looks refined and even graceful.
Overall, the watch leaves a pleasant impression and may become a nice purchase for those who do not care about how well-advertised a brand is.
