Dual Time-Zone Watches
Have you ever wished you could be in more than one place at a time? Modern technology can’t quite make you appear in the fresh on separate continents simultaneously, but there are plenty of unique timepieces that can at least help you keep track of two different time zones. If you’re like most men, you wear a watch practically every day. And if you’re a constant traveler, a dual timer becomes a necessity. These jetsetter musts may feature an extra arm, a twisting bezel or even an entirely separate dial to keep your clocking on schedule.
When deciding on a timepiece, think about the way your watch is powered. A Swiss-quartz, battery-run watch is extremely accurate and often lower in price. Automatic versions, because of the intricacy that enables them to run without a battery, carry prestige along with a higher price tag—however, that doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily keep better time. Constant, gentle movement powers automatic watches, so if you leave one on your dresser for a week, it’ll require resetting and a wind or two to get it up to speed.
Finally, make sure that you feel comfortable reading your watch. Are you at ease with Roman numerals or with none at all? Can you work the crowns and buttons to make use of all of your watch’s functions? Whether you prefer a clean, simple design or love the bells and whistles of a wearable gadget, you’ll have no problem finding a dual time-zone watch that keeps you punctual and fits your style.
