The Globetrotter Watch - A Classic Watch for your next Adventure
April 5th, 2020
The Globetrotter was conceived just before the national lockdown in Denmark. The Globetrotter is our take on two variations of the classic tool watch. First, A divers watch with no bells or whistles. it is based on the idea of a true tool watch.
The second iteration, The GMT is an homage to the beautiful pilot watches from the 1960s, unlike the Diver, the GMT version of the Globetrotter also features a date function.
Other than that, they share the same characteristics, they stand out, without screaming for attention, they are affordable but don’t sacrifice great quality
(believe us, you will notice when you have the watch in your hand!). It is what you expect from Scandinavian design, toned down, elegant, made to last.
All models comes with 1. Rubber strap, 1. Leather Strap and 1 Steel Bracelet
We love to change the straps of our watches according to a given situation like an activity or an outfit.
Both the straps and the bracelet are interchangeable and are easy to change, in a matter of seconds. cSo you can match your watch to anything from your t-shirt to a suit.
We use the black leather strap two tones down the watch and make it more formal. The Black Rubber strap gives the watch a more sporty look and is perfect for whatever sports activity you decide to throw yourself at or for everyday use, the same goes for the bracelet.
The Globetrotter comes in a Diver and GMT specification
Although GMT watches gained its fame in pilots watches, GMT watches have since earned the reputation as a necessary tool for the ultimate everyday adventurer.
They are especially useful to men and women who often find themselves in the air toward a new destination, traveling in a time zone far away from the loved ones you want to call back at home.
The Globetrotter Diver in Emerald Green
We love this green color, called Emerald Green. We spent properly too much time om picking the exact green that we wanted, but it was important for us to find our ‘own’ green.
Green watches are on fire right now according to the current trends in the watch industry. What we particularly love about this green color is that when the light hits the watch just right, you can not help yourself to just go “wow.”
The Globetrotter Diver in Dusty Blue
A blue diver - it doesn’t get more classic than that. Inspired by the faded bezels of vintage Tudor diving watches this 'Dusty Blue' Diver quickly became an office favorite.
It’s a watch that doesn’t call on unwanted attention, but those that know, will appreciate its elegant and understated looks and most likely wants one for themselves.
The Globetrotter Diver in Black
There is absolutely nothing innovative about making a diver with a black bezel. Some might even call it boring. We disagree. Its elegance in its purest form. Get ready for receiving those compliments when wearing it out.
The Globetrotter GMT Electric Blues
Duo-tone bezel on sports watches is hot, and there is absolutely no way of getting around that. The Blues used for the GMT version of The Globetrotter was offsprings of the search for ‘our own blue’ that we used for the Diver. But it’s like with kids, you end up loving them equally as much.
The Globetrotter GMT Leaf Greens
The bezel for the Green GMT might be one of the best in the Globetrotter Range. It’s balanced to perfection. The difference in hues is small enough that it doesn’t seem out of character and big enough that you can see the difference. We used this design technique as an indicator of night and day. We love it!
The Globetrotter GMT Black
Like with the Black Diver, we wanted to have a no-nonsense version of the GMT.
The choice of the purist. Unlike its Blue & Green brothers it doesn’t feature a duo-tone bezel. It’s black. It’s crisp. It is what it is.
Lumen for when the night comes
Lume is slang for the luminous phosphorescent glowing solution used in watchmaking. Both The Globetrotter Diver & GMT comes with a powerful swiss made lumen that makes the watch legible even in low light conditions.
So at this point, you might wonder, what do The Globetrotter Diver and GMT costs? We wanted to make it a simple choice for you, therefor both the Diver and GMT retail for €249, that is including free express shipping and returns.
