The Timepieces Made for Travelers

By Kristen Shirley

This story originally appeared in the Elite Traveler Luxury Escapes Edition 2017/2018.

Watches with a changeable strap allow you to travel the globe with just one timepiece that works for every occasion, whether it’s swimming in the ocean, hiking a mountain or a black-tie dinner. Take yours on an-around-the-world private jet trip.

Baume & Mercier Classima Chronograph

Responding to clients’ desires to change straps without using a tool, Baume & Mercier recently revamped the Classima collection to include a push-pin function to swap straps at home or on the go, making it the perfect timepiece for a far-flung vacation. The alligator strap easily comes off and can be changed to a sporty Nato strap or a matte calfskin strap. The chronograph will come in handy on your adventures.

Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time

Dedicated to exploration and travel, the Overseas collection features a simple mechanism to change straps—choose between a bracelet, alligator or rubber strap. For its latest version, Vacheron Constantin introduces a dual-time watch so you can always keep track of time at home. The second time zone, at 9 o’clock, is set with the crown. The date is synchronized with local time. Water-resistant to 150m, the watch is ready for all manner of water sports—perhaps snorkeling or scuba diving in the Galápagos Islands or the Seychelles.
