There is something indescribably awesome about wearing a world-timer. It may have something to do with the increased functionality of a mechanical timepiece that does much more than just keep the local time (instead of just relying on a smartphone). It may have something to do with the added complexities of the mechanical movement, the design layout of its dial, or the extra crown which operates the internally rotating bezel to cycle through time zones. But for me, I think the awesomeness has more to do with the lifestyle wearing one suggests. It is cool to think of oneself as a man of the world - and having a wristwatch that keeps you appraised of international city times with a quick glance of the wrist gives the feeling that you’ve “made it,” and you know what’s up — everywhere.
