The world has become smaller and most people travel frequently now for work or vacations. Most especially for people in Southeast Asia, there is a huge increase of regional companies being established out of Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines as regional headquarters where businessmen are always on the go hopping from one country to another for overnight meetings and conferences.
With all the flying around, there’s always that hassle of keeping the right time with the differences between time zones, whether it’s as obvious as 12 hours across the United States or just a few hours in East Asia. Here are our recommended watch sets that will make sure you’re on time every time you land:
Philip Stein Signature Collection
The collection made its claim to fame in 2003 with its dual time zone dials. Currently endorsed by 2015 Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach, the watch allows people caught in between two time zones to keep track of the time wherever you are. Further, with the brand’s Natural Frequency Technology, the watch helps the wearer find balance in the chaos of travelling back and forth.
Rolex GMT Master-II
For the robust and versatile travelling man, the Rolex GMT Master II is perfect for travelling. With a simple twist of the bidirectional bezel, it can show a second time zone for ease of use. It still features the iconic Oyster bracelet for that perfect combination of form and function.
Baume & Mercier Capeland Worldtimer
For the ultimate globetrotter, Baume and Mercier’s Capeland Worldtimer collection displays 24 time zones on its face. It has a sophisticated and classic design to go for business or casual looks, especially paired with its alligator strap. As a good travel feature, it is also water resistant up to 50 metres.
Patek Philippe 7130G Worldtime
The stylish Patek Philippe 7130G Worldtime is perfect for the posh woman travelling for business or pleasure. It showcases a white gold case, prong buckle set with 27 diamonds and gold applied hour markers. The elegance is further depicted with the hand stitched peacock blue alligator strap.
Breguet Classique Hora Mundi
For those looking for that dashing explorer look, Breguet Classique Hora Mundi is for you. The face channels the spirit of a natural voyager seeking adventure around the globe. It features an intant-jump time zone display which allows the person to switch from one time zone to another preset time zone with just a click of the button.
