Complicated timepieces with chronographs, chiming mechanisms, or ever more complex tourbillons are hugely impressive – but if there is one type of complication that has been enjoying more and more attention, that is going to the slowly but surely growing group of travel watches.
The so-called “travel time” indications are one of the most practical and genuinely useful features in a luxury timepiece. Today, we bring you five stellar examples of dual time zone watches for any adventure no matter where tomorrow brings you.
Hublot King Power Unico GMT
In contrast, Hublot takes things to the next level in terms of visual complexity with their King Power Unico GMT. The King Power Unico GMT uses four large, domed discs that rotate continuously underneath the set of main hour and minute hands. Printed on the bezel and on an internal ring around the periphery of the dial are a number of key city names associated with some of the more important time zones of the world. Red lines respective to each of these city names mark the actual hour on one of the four discs, allowing the wearer to quickly read the time in any of these places. Again, Hublot has really found a way to display world time in a bold new way and one that works remarkably well with the King Power aesthetic.
