Greubel Forsey has combined its Second Fundamental Invention, the Quadruple Tourbillon, with its rotating globe GMT indication into the GMT Quadruple Tourbillon. It displays three time zones together with universal time.
The first occurrence of a stylised terrestrial globe as an integral part of a wristwatch was in 2011, on Greubel Forsey's GMT. Others have since followed suit, and Planet Earth now adorns the wrist of travellers and makes an inspired addition to astronomical timepieces. Enjoy a closer look at these eleven watches - Copernicus would have approved!
At Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in January, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced the Polaris collection, channelling a 1960s watch. This new range is now joined by the Polaris Geographic WT with a worldtime function.
Introduced in 2015, this watch for globetrotters, which indicates local and destination time in each of the 35 world time zones currently in use, is now available in a steel version.

Van Cleef & Arpels adds to its range of men's watches with a new version of the Heure d’Ici & Heure d’Ailleurs in a Midnight case. Driven by the company's own dual-time movement, it suggests a more poetic time, hovering between two horizons.
