    I've been using a Diesel digital watch for all my dual time zone travel needs until its leather band gave out. I blame the frequent use due to airport check-ins :) Now I am on the market for a new watch and wondering what is the timepiece of choice for other travelers. I am targeting something below $120 since I expect to watch to be lost, but feel free to share whatever you use.

    Can you just replace the leather band?

    Yes, possible. But then it takes away an excuse to get a new watch :)

    I have used the Casio dual time watch for years. Until the band broke for the third time, and the crystal had taken a beating. Cost is around $30.00 dollars. I now have a Casio atomic G-Shock which I use. Can display dual time, but is a little more complicated than the earlier Casio I had. Price is around $90.00. I got mine on sale at Kohl s for $50.00. Of course YMMV.

    Doesn't meet the price point, but the Rolex GMT Master II does this the most elegantly of all I think. If you're worried about losing the watch, you could schedule it under a "mysterious disappearance" insurance rider as part of your homeowners or renters policy.

    I use a nice Roots world watch, where you set your time zone and what city it lines up with, and then you can display whatever time zone you want.

    I have a Citizen Aviator that I like quite a bit, but, it won't meet your budget.

    I'll probably look at the Casio atomic watches, but that Citizen watch might be something I'll put on my to get list long term. Rolex will be on the wishlist for when I win lottery.

    Casio G-Shock series.
    Swatch has some nice products.
    If you do decide to go the Rolex route- for the same money you can get a much nicer timepiece from Tag Heuer or if you really win the lottery just special order a Franck Muller and be done with it.
