Gold, platinum, silver – as expensive as all of these elements are, perhaps the most valuable resource is one without weight: time. It’s not only precious, but it’s scarce, and it’s not the same for everyone. Living in America while having relatives in Europe means you’re going to have to do some mental gymnastics to find out when you’re both awake for a Skype chat. But not if you own the Time Traveller, of course. This unique watch allows you to see the time all over the world using 16 landmark buildings instead of hands to mark time in different regions. It doesn’t have all the features of other wearables like a Fitbit, but you’ll definitely know what time your friend in Paris is waking up.
While the Time Traveller (left) is cool, it’s certainly not orthodox in the world of horology. If you’re more of a traditionalist then you might want to check out this list of the most popular watch brands sold by Chrono24. If popularity and looking good at a party are your concerns, then a solid Rolex or Omega is the way to go… just don’t expect to know what time the sun is rising in Cape Town.
