Suunto Ambit 2, £300

The Ambit 2 is everything you’d want from a travel watch. Made in sleek matte black chrome, it measures altitude, weather conditions, heart rate, helps you navigate - oh, and it tells the time, too. suunto.com

Christopher Ward Worldtimer, £1,575

For the refined traveller, the Worldtimer is a must-have. Beautifully designed, it features a world map inlay, 24-hour face and tells the time in two time zones at once. A “mould-breaking timepiece” indeed. christopherward.co.uk

Slowatch Slow Jo - £190

This military-inspired piece is about as stripped back as you can get. It also features a 24-hour face, but otherwise sticks to pure simplicity. Strap, cool octagonal bezel, hands - what more do you need? slow-watches.com
