Timepieces Ready for the Road

Take time off this summer for a road trip adventure with watches from Hing Wa Lee Jewelers that are the perfect copilots.

Watches are essential for a road trip. They are handy both in and out of the car with their myriad of helpful functions and tools. They are also highly fashionable, ensuring that their wearer looks excellent regardless of circumstance. Watchmakers from all over the world craft a diverse range of pieces, some better suited for travel than others. No matter whether you are driving down Route 66 or California 1, make one of these watches from our Hing Wa Lee Jewelers showroom a guide to fun on your road trip.

The Stops

The road is long and full of destinations. Springs, pools, and beaches are great places to rest during an adventure. Their cool and refreshing waters can revive a tired mind, all while surrounding you with the majesty of nature. If you plan on making stops in nature, we recommend getting a watch made of water-resistant materials like silicone and rubber. That way, you won’t have to take them off.

This Breitling Superocean Automatic 36 is an excellent choice for the outdoors. It has high water resistance, due to its stainless steel case. The watch is also highly attractive with an unusual yet modern design. Its easy-to-read dial ensures that you will not linger in the water for too long, tempting as it is.

The Mountain Road

While adventuring through this beautiful state, you are likely to encounter some changes in elevation. The highest mountain road in California is about 10,320 feet high, while the lowest is 282 feet below sea level. A rare complication, some timepieces have altimeters. They can measure the altitude from the comfort of your wrist, as well as tell the time and other features. Note that this isn’t just an interesting tidbit: altitude sickness can start as low as 5,000 feet, so it’s best to prepare.

This Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar II Watch has a rare altimeter complication, as well as an alarm, chronograph, and perpetual calendar. Made of stainless steel, it's guaranteed to survive the elements. For added functionality, it has a digital display. It is also gorgeous, ensuring that it won’t stick out and throw off your sleek road trip ensemble.

The Great Adventure

Sometimes a road trip is about the destination. Whether a loved one’s house or a national park, you are determined to get there and do so quickly. Since you will likely be heading through a number of different time zones, it’s advisable to wear a watch with a GMT complication. This lets your watch show multiple time zones, which is convenient while driving across the country. It can also show your home’s time, ensuring you won’t wake them up by accident with a late phone call.

The Hamilton American Classic Spirit Liberty shows the GMT in style. With a polished steel case and leather strap, it’s a sophisticated yet bold timepiece. In addition to the GMT, it features a chronograph and a small second hand for added functionality.
