Traveling is a luxury but it can also be quite challenging. If one’s travels bring them to the other side of the world, they’ll experience a different timezone. Travelers have to constantly be on guard of the differences in time of the destination they’re in from the home that they’re used to. Good thing various luxury timepieces now make it easier to switch from one timezone to the next. They even look astoundingly beautiful, particularly the Ulysse Nardin’s GMT Perpetual watch.

Ulysse Nardin was actually one of the first of the upscale watch brands to formulate a timepiece that’ll be easier to change time zones. Thus, their GMT Perpetual model was born. They debuted it back in 1999 but it’s still as popular today as it was back then. At times, the Swiss luxury label even offered special edition variations of the piece, some with more sparkle and shine. Today, each of these magnificent timepieces costs around $30,000.

Specifications:

  • Diameter: 38.5mm
  • Movement: Caliber 1354
  • Water Resistant: 30 meters
  • Power Reserve: 48 hours
  • Frequency: 28,800 vph
  • Strap: Anthracite dial leather
  • Buckle: Buckle clasp

Pros

With just a few twists and turns, one can easily change the time zone in their Ulysse Nardin GMT Perpetual timepiece. It’s all within the crown of the watch, which handles both the hands and the large date feature of the entire item. All the details indicating the time and date are legible and elegant, which make for an exquisite timepiece. Design-wise, the GMT Perpetual has seen countless variations through the years, each more beautiful than the next. It’s been encased in 18-karat rose gold, shimmering silver stainless steel, and with dark-toned dials that are all the sights of pure sophistication.

Cons

While it’s easy for wearers to change the time with the GMT Perpetual, the actual changing takes quite a bit of time. Changing the day and date will take around 45 hours, while changing it from February 28/29 to March 1 can take up three hours in total. In comparison, digital watches—which are beginning to be a dominant force in the watchmaking business—takes no more than a couple of minutes to accurately change the time and timezone. Although luxury timepieces such as the GMT Perpetual are still more beautiful, practicality seems to favor the faster digital watches.
