These are my actual favorite wristwatches with a “Multiple Time Zone”, “Worldtimer” or “Unitime” feature.

Breguet Classique Hora Mundi

Having such a watch on your wrist means you can surf through the world´s time-zones instantly without the need of any battery or processor. It´s magic, it´s mechanical, it´s pure watchmaking!

Many of us travel round the world. Traveling very often means we have to adjust our watches when arriving at our destination. Having friends and business partners around the globe also means that we need to know the local time at our friends and partners location.

If you want to combine both, seeing the zone-time in the 24 most import timezones and always read the correct local time, and wear a technical interesting timepiece that also looks great I recommend you to have a closer look at my personal favorite “Multiple Time Zone” or “Wordtimer” or “Unitime” watches.

I would recommend you each of them, since they are all easy to read and adjust. And what makes them really special is the fact that mechanical movements combined with or without special time-zone/zone-time-modules (depending on the way how the movements were designed) drive them all. So there are no batteries, no processors involved, just clever, good and traditional watchmaking applies …

  • Lovely bling & a good way to get mugged or worse in a lot of countries. Any of the cheap Casio type watches are good for travel. If you get sweaty wrists because of the plastic band, remove it, replace the pins & thread a short length of ribbon ( same width as the band) through them & then use the watch as a fob watch. Another good way to find the correct time in any country, regardless of the time zone or whether DST is active, is to ask someone. A big no no in many countries is to keep using your mobile phone to check the time, keep it hidden & on silent ring.

  • What a compilation, Alex! Spoilt for choice,I thought the NOMOS Zürich Weltzeit is also worth a mention as well.

  • I think you missed out on Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time, which does not deal with just 24 time zones but 36 or 37 time zones.

    Moreover, it is a mechanical watch and not a quartz one.

    • Did you see any other “simple” GMT model here? This is about Worldtimer and Unitime watches and not “simple” GMT’s. So of course NO Rolex GMT here, I am very serious about that 🙂

  • I have a Jeager reverso home time and love this watch. The benefit with watch, you can change to local time and keep the home time the same.

  • I really love the Breguet! What about the Alpina World Timer which is not on your list? I think is easier to read than the IWC.

  • Very nice choice, the Breguet is superb but there is another world timer that you may have over looked and that is the Ball Trainmaster Worldtimer Chronograph. This watch even has tiny micro gas tubes for night reading. This watch can be bought for only £1800.

  • Thank you for the broad spectrum. I’m unemployed, so won’t be getting anything, & time is irrelevant when you don’t have schedules & deadlines hanging over you. I still enjoy looking @ the unattainable.
