Dual Time Watches
Aviation sparked the development of dual time as pilots faced the challenges of changing time zones. Dual time watches display two time zones simultaneously with a main dial and a subdial. Discover these travel-friendly timepieces from luxury watch brands like Patek Phillippe and Rolex.
Whether you’re traveling to Japan for business or on your next getaway to Europe, every avid traveler needs a timepiece to keep up. Dual time watches simultaneously display the time in two different timezones. These watches allow the wearer to set a home timezone for easy reference. Most commonly you’ll see a subdial somewhere on the dial indicating the second timezone on a 12-hour scale. Some dual time watches feature a subtle day/night indication as well, allowing users to tell what part of the day it is in the second time zone. Occasionally, manufacturers will opt for a digital display of the second timezone. Discover some of our top dual time timepieces from luxury watch brands like Patek Philippe, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Rolex, Breitling, and more.
A Few of Our Dual Time Watches
Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time, Ref. 5164
Though using a central hand for its second time zone indication, the Aquanaut Travel Time is considered a dual time watch. One of the most practical luxury watches in a relatively compact case, this timepiece has a pair of pushers on the left side of its case to adjust the local time forwards and backwards.
Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Duoface
A beautiful dual time watch, the Reverso Duoface is a useful timepiece for traveling. With two sides, each indicating a different timezone, you flip the watch over to see the time in another zone. The second timezone is presented on an elegant dark dial, offering a different aesthetic depending on which side you choose to wear.
The Sky-Dweller is a dual time watch that also features an annual calendar. The bezel on the timepiece works in three positions, each one unlocking a different operation, which are all controlled through the crown of the watch. This means that reference time, local time, and the date can be set without additional pushers.
What’s the Difference between Dual Time Watches and GMT Watches?
Dual time watches and GMT Watches both display more than one time zone at once, making them some of the most practical timepieces on the market. The main difference between the two is a GMT watch relies on a 24-hour scale for time indication, while dual time watches are on a 12-hour scale.
