Central hour and minute hands on the Russian Time wristwatch show local time anywhere in Russia, while the other 10 time zones can be conveniently read off the displays on the top or bottom half of the dial.
Because each time zone is one hour from the next one, the time zones progressively advance in one hour intervals across the country. This is shown geographically with a Russian map at six o'clock, with the time zones corresponding to each area of the country outlined and shaded.
At 12 o'clock the time zones are denoted by the names of major cities in each time zone: Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Norilsk, Yakutsk, Chersky, Samara, Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Anadyr, and Vladivostok. Because the two time zone discs are synchronised with the hands, advancing the time will also change the time zone display correspondingly.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
