People are travelling like never before and crossing time zones has almost become a way of life. World timers are the perfect accessories for all globetrotters.
World timers have a very important role to play in today’s times! Today, the world is a cocoon. Our lives unfold across countries and continents as we move about in today’s global world. As our lives are increasingly conducted on a global scale, it becomes extremely important to keep track of time, which can indeed become a monumental task. But the finest watches are here to the rescue. Modern timepieces provide the global traveller with all the tools that count—right on the wrist.
World timers display the time in key cities around the globe. Note that all this is at a mere glance. So, it would be correct to say that they actually depict the world on the wrist! Some brands even incorporate quickset modules that enable the wearer to change the time forward or backward when traveling, while other brands offer patented easy-to-read systems. There are watches for different hemispheres, those that connect to GPS network to tell time with precision, those offering simultaneous reading of world time zones, special world time watches for aviators and special ones for travellers. Today, these timepieces are more user-friendly than ever before.
The GMT, dual timer and the world timer
Frequent travellers also use the GMT watch quite often. In simple terms, a GMT watch is a timepiece with a 24-hour format hand that indicates a second time zone in addition to the other hands. It must be noted that this is not just any multiple time zone watch with more than one 12-hour format dial. For a GMT watch, the 24-hour scale is a must.
There is a subtle distinction of the world timer from a regular dual timer. The dual time zone watch is intended to have both zones adjusted more frequently. The world timer, by contrast, shows many time zones at once.
Drool worthy designs
It is not only the function but also the designs that are talk-worthy. Featuring beautiful, exquisite and classic designs that demonstrate impeccable craftsmanship, these timepieces pay homage to the traveller. A buyer is truly spoilt for choice when he has to decide which timepiece to buy.
At the first glance, world timers may appear a bit daunting, but all it takes is a little time and effort to understand its workings. A quick lesson from the retail expert will do the trick! So, the next time you are travelling the world, make sure you do it in style!
