GIVEAWAY: Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Triple Time Watch   watch giveaways

For April we have a very unique watch from Ritmo Mundo available for one lucky winner. This is the Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Triple Time. It starts with a huge 52.5mm wide steel case that has a middle section that "orbits" around to reveal one of two faces. The watch contains three total movements, each being a Swiss Ronda quartz. One side has two distinct dials each with their own time, and the other side has one time zone with the hours and minutes on separate dials. The architectural case has skeletonized lugs and an interesting style. Despite the large size, the Persepolis is quite wearable with the snug rubber strap and angled lugs. Retail price for most versions of the Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Triple Time is $3,600. Enter for a chance to win your choice of either the black or steel and gold tone Persepolis Triple Time watch below.

Easy to read.  Multiple time zones, of which the time zones are either:  A. auto correcting, or B. easy to adjust.  Comfortable.  No need for a 50mm dial, but not a wimpish 32mm dial, either.  Atomic.

The perfect travel watch must be able to keep the time in at least two timezones. Without that, you really cant call it a travel watch !

In my opinion the perfect travel watch would be water resistant to 300m, since you never know when your plane may be shot down, and you may end up in a very large body of water.  The watch should also have a GMT movement, so you can always be aware of the time in the country you will not be able to go back to since your raft was captured by the North Korean military.  This perfect travel watch should also have an emergency beacon, so that you can keep your hopes high while waiting to be rescued. and a smooth surface for "hiding" the watch. so it will not be taken away from you while in a North Korean prison.

Two features I'd love in a travel watch:  

1. Your current time can advance (or retreat) one hour at a time easily.

2. It has a one "reset back the 'home' time" button.

A perfect travel watch needs to incorporate multiple features. Depending on ones needs, travel watches need to be durable, waterproof, have multiple time zones and ultimatley withstand ones endeavours. For example as a watch enthusiast i personally travel with a breitling emergency.

Hi, and thanks for providing this GiveAway!

The perfect travel watch for me, depends on what type of traveling I would be doing.  Flying to a nice hotel, in a resort area, would require less consideration than traveling to the jungles of the Amazon.  In either case, the watch would need to be as near water 'proof' as could be, and also an automatic.  I would want to be able to keep the watch on me at all times, through different environments, both hot and dry, or wet and humid and I don't think there will be too many watch battery stores in the Amazon.  For that matter, the strap will need to be as resilient to the environment as the watch, so a Nato, or a maratac type strap would also be necessary.

Very nice.  Quite a unique design.

I think it would be great to have while dealing with meetings at my present location and web meetings in different time zones. It would keep me from panic times when I'm in different time zones.

A perfect travel watch must be readable in lower light, comfortable, and water resistant in the event that you get caught in the rain.  It should be able to handle both casual and dressier occasions, and look fantastic.

A perfect travel watch is one that automatically sets itself when a new time zone is detected.  The problem with that is there is no way to incorporate atomic technology with a mechanical watch.  So then the perfect mechanical watch needs to easily read for multiple time zones, and needs to be easily set.  Legibility is also key.  I will enjoy wearing this watch, as I travel regularly across the 3 time zones.

A perfect travel watch, first of, needs to keep impeccable time, in multiple time zones..  It should be rugged (where are we traveling to, and what are we doing?), easy to read, mechanical, and versatile.  It should be able to transition easily between boardrooms and impromptu hikes.  Waterproof would be a large plus, as would a low profile.  An alarm is essential, as hotel wake-up calls are not always reliable.  Comfort is a must!  In short, Ritmo Mundo would be the obvious winner!.

A perfect travel watch shows 2 or more timezones LEGIBLY and is easy in operation.

MarkFenimore

Perfection in a travel watch can be summed up in a few simple characteristics. The watch should be legible, and not only easy to read but easy to set. That's what I find intriguing about the RITMO - it takes all of the effort out of setting and resetting time zones for travel. I would set an east coast , central, and west coast US time and be done with it! A good travel watch should also be comfortable enough to wear on long days, and durable enough to stand up to whatever job or task its wearer has to perform on the regular. I would wear this one with pride on my travels!

A perfect travel watch is one that is legible, and easy to read.  It shouldn't be like deciphering the da vinci code just to tell what time it is in 2 (or more) time zones.  The watch should also be rugged and up for adventure while away on trips, but also stylish enough to wear to formal meetings and dinners.

Uniquely designed, this would be an ideal timepiece for the traveler.  Having owned a RM Centurion, I can assume that the quality is superb as are the fit and finish.  This piece would definitely stand out in a crowd.

Must be rugged, comfortable and easy to take off/ put on.

My perfect travel watch is one that can be worn with multiple attires and durable enough to never leave my wrist when I am abroad. Multiple time zones work well too :-)

Perfect travel watch would be easy to see home time (ideally with day night indicator), be tough (when I am drowsy I bump my watches), big and easy to read and look unique (as I like my watches to be distinctive)

A perfect travel watch should be comfortable but durable, waterproofed, with dual time-zones, of course, easy to set, with a dial easy to read in different light conditions. I like this Ritmo Mundo watch and I would wear it even in my own country, not only when travelling abroad.

Hi , perfect travel watch must be simplistic in use & dial reading , ive come across so many watches which are hard to read , too much going on on the actual watch . Must be water proof , easy on the wrist to wear , but above any of the above is the time keeping of the watch .

T_I

A perfect travel watch for me would be:

- tough (no scratching, water proof to some extend)
- light (not to heavy to wear)
- not to big (< 44 mm) or to thick
- good contrast between hands/hour indicators and the dial. (easy to read in bright sunlight as well in darker places)
- mechanical (not depending on a battery or sunlight to keep it running)
- nice (IMHO an almost clean dial)

With a watch like that you can travel and see everything you could want to see.

It should be unobtrusive and capable be being worn without having to be taken off for sleeping washing etc

a watch with dual timezomes, should be easy to adjust, should be cofortable and tough...

My Tissot allows me to change only the hour hand.  Very useful when changing timezones.

For a travel watch I would look for something comfortable but durable, easy to read and adjust.  For any collection I appreciate unique designs something that is not similar to something I already have.  The Rimo Mundo Persepolis certainly fits these criteria.  Thank you again Ariel.

The perfect travel watch must balance function and form. It should be a conversation starter, but should not detract from its surroundings. It should provide utility (i.e. the ability to follow multiple time zones simultaneously), but be versatile enough to wear in any situation that may arise.

Nice watch. I really like the idea of the different time zones.

Well,to answer the question, as a watch enthusiast I'm asking myself this question:


What features should a wristwatch have to be the perfect travel companion?

And my answer,since I'm an aviator it should be...

...rugged
...waterproof
...have different time zones
...have an alarm
...automatic or solar powered so u can't run out of battery while traveling
...looking cheap and understated to avoid being mugged for it
...digital or analog or both

Well, I'm in the mood for something new.. Just in case I crashed in the Atlantic, hope Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Triple Time Watch makes it PERFECT all day long buddy !!!  

PandaBeat

Perfect for travel?  worldtime function, obviously... reliable, comfortable... I have a watch in mind: in case the plane crashes in the Andes or the boat sinks leaving me floating on top of a piece of wood, I want to be wearing a Breitling Emergency II.

A good travel watch must accommodate time zones based on GPS, home time zone being constant.. Must be rugged and light at the same time.. Needless to say other features like alarm, water and weather resistant are a must! 

ChemEnger

A good travel watch should be comfortable,  easy to set, have a clear view of two time zones and have an easy to set alarm.

Ideal would be to have a dual time zone watch. The Ritmo is certainly an interesting case..I can't imagine running into someone else with this unique timepiece.

Very interesting watch.  For me, water resistance, date, and simple to set, all make for a good travel watch.

time zones, weather resistant and the ease of reading the dial for a travel weary watch wearer make the most sense to me.

I would go foe a robust GMT. I don't want to have to worry about a ding or a scratch.

For me, the perfect travel watch needs good luminosity, like my Traser big date pilot.

To me, the perfect travel watch would be one that could display a minimum of three time zones... #1 Home, #2 the time zone you're currently visiting and #3 the time zone you are enroute to.

The perfect travel watch is one that isn't too shiny and attention getting but is unique and beautiful. As well as dual time zones of course.

I would go for multiple time zones and alarm, to avoid oversleeping or being late at meetings.

I just got back from Vegas. Instead of constantly trying to figure out the differences between the time zone I live in and the one Las Vegas is in, I could have used that watch!!! If I win, it will give me an excuse to take a special trip back there to utilize the watch.

Perfect travel watch needs to flexible, functional and look good dressed up or down.  This would definitely fit the bill.

Perfect travel watch - 

- Not a watch I am going to worry about dinging/scratching (e.g. 

- A GMT or something like this Ritmo Mundo!

Must be small enough to not draw attention to itself (thieves), water-proof (snow and rain), automatic or mechanical and able to show multiple time zones (at least home time).
