The Australian - Wish Magazine - - TIMEPIECES -

Ask a dozen glo­be­trot­ters for their top travel tips and you’ll get a dozen dif­fer­ent an­swers. Travel, like all things in life, is a mat­ter of per­sonal taste and in­deed, a state of mind. Nowhere is this more ap­par­ent than in what we travel with, from the essentials to the lit­tle lux­u­ries.

Your watch man­ages to be both, es­pe­cially if it fea­tures a GMT or dual-time com­pli­ca­tion. When you’re jet­ting across con­ti­nents the sec­ond time dis­play comes to the fore, be­cause what­ever time zone you might be in right now, you’ll al­ways know what’s hap­pen­ing at home. In ad­di­tion to be­ing a use­ful tool for the jet-lagged trav­eller, the right watch also makes the per­fect state­ment.

The new CT60 Dual Time from Tif­fany & Co. has been cre­ated for the stylish trav­eller with a pen­chant for old-world charm. Un­like many watches of this va­ri­ety, this one doesn’t look like it has been de­signed by a mil­i­tary pro­cure­ment board. In­stead, the in­spi­ra­tion was a watch from 1945 gifted to Franklin D. Roo­sevelt, which is ev­i­dent in the CT60’s re­strained de­sign and stylised Ara­bic nu­mer­als.

The brand has done well in adding in­for­ma­tion, while keeping it un­clut­tered. The slen­der blue hand points to a 24-hour scale on the outer sec­tion of the dial, with num­bers in red and blue to in­di­cate day and night. What’s more, the two push­ers mean you can quickly ad­just lo­cal time with­out need­ing to take the watch off your wrist. It’s re­ally the per­fect way to travel in style. RRP $22,900
