In various different forms the World Time has been available for around 80 years although for 2016 the new 5230G-001 has been updated in a number of key areas. The case shape has been changed most noticeably around the lugs - now much more traditional in appearance. The hands have also changed the hour hand now has the appearance of the 'Southern Cross' constellation as opposed to previous 'ball' hand. Another update is the time zones themselves as from 27th March 2016 Russia 'moved' from GMT+4 to GMT+3. Changes for the sake of accuracy had to be made. The 5230G-001 in white gold comes with a hand-guillochéd charcoal grey lacquered dial.

Cut

An understanding of diamond cut begins with the shape of a diamond. Largely a matter of personal preference, diamond shapes can vary from a marquise or a pear to an oval or a heart. Diamond cutting is a highly skilled craft and all cut shapes have specific guidelines to ensure they are considered ‘well cut’. The angle and placement of the facets used to create these distinctive cuts is very precise. Any deviation from the ideal proportions will affect the value of the finished gem.

Colour

As the world’s respected and foremost diamond grading laboratory, the GIA’s colour grading scale for diamonds is followed as the industry standard. Beginning with the letter D – representing completely colourless – the scale graduates in colour right through to Z. Even though each letter grade has a clearly defined range of colour appearance, the colour distinctions are so subtle that they are invisible to the untrained eye. However, these slight variations make a significant difference both in diamond quality and performance. The minimum colour requirement in our Diamond Collection for GIA certified diamonds is H.

Clarity

Every diamond is unique. Another of the 5Cs is diamond clarity, which refers to the absence of inclusions or blemishes. It is rare for diamonds not to have any of these ‘birthmarks’, so it is this rarity that determines a diamond's value. Using the GIA International Diamond Grading System™, diamonds are assigned a clarity grade ranging from FL (flawless) to I3 (obvious inclusions) – with inclusions becoming visible to the naked eye at SI2. The minimum requirement in our Diamond Collection for GIA certified diamonds is SI1 (slightly included).

Carat Weight

In terms of the 4Cs of diamond grading, the first to spring to mind for most people is the carat. The name derives from the carob seed, which was used by early gem traders as counterweights in their balance scales. Today, the size of a diamond is measured in carat weight, with 0.2g equalling one carat. This is divided into 100 points, so a diamond of 75 points weighs 0.75 of a carat. Although carat weight is the most obvious factor when determining a diamond’s value, two diamonds of equal size can in fact have disparate values, due to differences in their colour, cut or clarity.
