Travel watches are currently having a moment. From dive watches with 12 hour bezels, to a new generation of affordable GMTs, there hasn’t been a time where there has been this many options for a watch that can help you stay on track as you jump across different time zones (more divers with a GMT function, please). But what about Worldtimers? They deserve a little bit of attention too, right? The complication allows the user to decipher the time in any part of the world at a glance and the traditional design between the globe on the dial and the cities surrounding it symbolizes the curiosity and romance of travel.
Montblanc distinctly captures the world time complication in their Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum. The watch uses a series of discs, one of which displays various cities and the other a 24-hour day/night scale that works in tandem with the central hands to tell the time anywhere in the world. The model itself was incepted back in 2014 and has seen three previous configurations – a blue dial in steel, a brown dial in rose gold and a green dial United Arab Emirates limited edition. Recently, Montblanc released their newest addition to the Star Legacy Orbis Terrarum line in a handsome gray and gold dial combination.
