Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface
Here are four watches to suit any globetrotter as they criss-cross time zones.
The Reverso Tribute Duoface from Jaeger-LeCoultre is modern yet distinctive, with its steel case and blue hour-markers. Swivel the case, and the second face is a more daring dark blue guilloché dial, making this watch an accessory to be worn on any occasion. The watch runs on a mechanical hand-wound movement and indicates a second time zone.
If your travels include a dip in the sea, here's the watch for you. A new addition to the Tudor Heritage Black Bay family, the Heritage Black Bay Dark comes in matte black, satin-finish steel, and has the signature elements of the first Tudor diving watches, including a domed dial, angular snowflake hands, and a prominent winding crown. The watch is waterproof to 200 metres.
Displaying 37 time zones, the Vacheron Constantin Overseas World Time is an ideal travel companion. The centre of the watch pictures the Earth in a conical projection map, plus a translucent lacquered disc carrying the names of cities. This model has a self-winding movement and bears the Hallmark of Geneva, the ultimate certification of quality in fine watchmaking.
Unveiled during Baselworld, Hublot’s Big Bang Meca-10 is a fun timepiece inspired by Meccano, the model-making system familiar to generations of children. The watch houses the HUB1201 new manufacture movement and can be seen on the case back, behind the Meccano-inspired bridges. The movement gives the watch an immense 10-day power reserve.
