If its all about "it looks fancy" I'd vote against this, even using two dropdowns and dynamically change the second on the continent selected this is IMHO usability--.
Maybe there is some major advantage of having that much choice but I really don't see it, I only see a lot of pain. When selecting a timezone I only want to say that I'm UTC+1, not: I'm in Europe -> I'm in western Europe -> I'm in the Netherlands -> I'm in Amsterdam (what I'm not but its the only "php tz" here)
