Traveling to different hemispheres presents no problem for this watch. The solar compass works by first pointing the hour hand to the direction of the sun. Then, one moves the internal bezel by turning the crown to match the hours on the bezel to the current hour of the day. The orange markers are for the Northern Hemisphere, and white markers are for Southern Hemisphere. Finally, holding the hour hand pointing towards the sun, the internal bezel will show the cardinal points of North, South, East, and West.
The manufacturers suggested retail price is $1,499 with a limited edition run of 100 units. A five-year warranty is offered on all Ocean Crawler watches.
