Travel watches are typically seen as a rough-and-ready affair, a style dominated by hardy steel pieces that often seem to speak a language of adventure rather than luxury. But honestly, while this reflects a romanticised notion of travel, the reality, especially at the pointy end, is a much more civilised affair.* If civilised travel is more your speed, you might be interested in this beautiful Blancpain, which brings dual time utility to Villeret's dressy style. The 40mm red gold case is well-sized, and the double stepped design is sophisticated, as it must be said is the movement tech inside. The 5A50 movement looks good, and offers a very solid 100 hours of power reserve and a silicon balance. The Blancpain Villeret GMT Date makes a compelling argument for travelling in style.* Blancpain Villeret GMT Date price Blancpain Villeret GMT Date, red gold on leather, $26,300 AUD Made in partnership with Blancpain.
