Whether crossing time zones or making a fashion statement, a watch is a traveler's best friend. T+L asked four globe-trotters about their favorite timepieces and why they love them.

Jeff Probst

Host of CBS's Survivor

Favorite Watch: Tissot T-touch

"The touch-sensitive screen lets you switch easily between the altimeter, compass, barometer, and thermometer. I use it all the time when I'm on location—it's more accurate than the National Weather Service!"

Phillip Lim

Fashion and Accessories Designer

Favorite Watch: IWC Big Pilot's Watch

"The crocodile band and black face are versatile enough for casual or formal settings. I love its seven-day power reserve, and the dial helps me remember to wind my watch when I'm traveling."

Oberto Gili

T+L Contributing Photographer

Favorite Watch:Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean

"It's so indestructible that when I'm gardening on my farm outside Turin, I can just spray dirt off it with a hose. It also has a dial that I use for timing when I'm milking my two cows."

Gabrielle Reece


Favorite Watch:TechnoMarine TMY Ceramique Matte

"I wear this men's watch because I like its masculine style. Plus, I can beat it up when I'm working out and it still looks great."
