Panerai L’Astronomo Luminor 1950 Tourbillon Moon Phases Equation of Time GMT

The name may be a mouthful but there’s no denying the exquisite nature of this timepiece by Panerai. Housed in a 50mm brushed titanium case and boasting an out of the box design with a stunning skeletonised dial, the model incorporates an equation of time, sunrise and sunset times, a GMT function, a moonphase display on the back which can be personalised for the wearer’s chosen location. It also features a novel date display on a polarised borosilicate glass disc. It is a head turning timepiece for sure and one that will fit in with any ensemble of a seasoned traveller.

Montblanc 1858 Geosphere

Despite it being one of the most affordable world timers in the market today, the 1858 Geosphere also stands as one of the most unique timepieces ever made. The timepiece pays tribute to the 160th anniversary of Minerva and features a brand-new manufacture WorldTime complication developed internally at Villeret. It features a stylish 42mm case, with a contrasting black and gold colour scheme and rotating ceramic compass bezel. However, its most standout feature is its dual rotating hemisphere globes at 12 and 6 o’clock, which helps display the time-zones on both sides of the planet.

Breitling Chronoliner B04

A successor to the vintage 765 AVI and 765 Co-Pilot, the Chronoliner B04 is considered by many as a true ‘flight-captain’s chronograph.’ The latest edition arrives in an 18k gold case featuring a blue dial and ceramic bezel. It is a precision timepiece no doubt, with the Manufacture Breitling Caliber B04 endowed with an extremely functional dual time zone system. Chronometer-certified by the COSC, the timepiece keeps tabs on time at home in 24-hour mode, with the ultra-hard, scratch-resistant ceramic rotating bezel serving to read off a third time zone, also on a 24-hour scale.

Oris Big Crown ProPilot Worldtimer

The ProPilot needs little introduction as it remains one of the best dual time watches around. The appeal of this timepiece lies in its innovative and highly user-friendly time zone adjustment. Wearers  can adjust the main hour hand in single hour increments – forwards or backwards – with a simple twist of the distinctive coin-edged bi-directional bezel. Powered by the Oris Cal. 690 movement, the ProPilot sports a substantial 44.7mm case that sits 12mm high and features a dial that displays the time in the three o’clock subdial with local hours and minutes on the main dial.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic Universal Time

The world on your wrist. That best describes the Geophysic Universal Time, which was originally made for explorers and scientists in the mid-50s. Unmistakable in design, the timepiece features a world map on the dial with a world time ring around it. Sitting behind this unique dial sits a Jaeger-LeCoultre 772 automatic winding movement that shows the time, date along with a deadbeat seconds. The 42mm stainless steel timepiece is equipped with a sapphire crystal glass and features a black alligator strap, with a deployment buckle for added security and comfort.
