For being a brand so skilled in produced watches of all types, Shinola hadn’t turned out a dedicated travel watch — until it introduced the Rambler GMT. Featuring a turning topring bezel designed to keep accurate time when venturing across time zones, the stainless steel case is a beefy and tough 44mm. The timepiece is complete with a handcrafted leather strap, and on top of that, the screw-down crown ensures the watch is water-resistant to 100 meters. The handsome dial is classic and crisp, finished off with Super-LumiNova hands and indices for maximum readability. The Detroit-assembled Argonite movement adds another dash of the high-quality attention to detail for which the brand is known.
Perhaps the defining feature of this watch is that it can take you across time zones, through the airport and straight to a well-dressed dinner party without you needing to switch timepieces. Given the stunning good looks and great functionality of this watch, it should be on your wrist for years of traveling to come. – $750
