My current top 15 GMT/ UTC /Dual Time watches

 

 

Breitling Navitimer GMT: Indicating the second zone time (our home time) through the 24-hour-hand with the red arrow. Breitling uses an in-house calibre.

Hermès Dressage L’Heure Masquée: Unless you use the push piece that is integrated in the crown the Hermès watch will only show the current minutes and indicate the word “GMT” in the little window at 6 o`clock position. When you use the push piece that is integrated in the crown the correct local time will be shown and in the little window you second zone time. For its “masked time” Hermès uses an in-house calibre.

IWC Ingenieur Dual Time: Indicating the second zone time (our home time) through the 24-hour-hand with the blue arrow. IWC uses a Sellita automatic calibre with an in-house module. (In contrary to what was published elsewhere you can change/set the time through the hour hand in one-hour-steps. You will not loose your minutes and seconds.)

  • You might also want to consider many of the really nice Grand Seiko GMT models. Some of them are truly stunning. I have the SBGM027, which kind of looks like a more elegant Explorer II.

  • None of these have day of week complication unfortunately. What about Longines Master Collection?

  • Been eyeing the new Grand Seiko high-beat GMT’s (SBGJ). First few weeks of release and they are all sold out for the year! That says a lot, I think. Looks amazing from photos but I’m sure will be so much better on my wrist!

  • My top 3:

    1. Hermès Dressage L’Heure Masquée (simplicity at its best)
    2. Rolex Cellini Dual Time (classy)
    3. Sinn 857 UTC Testaf LH-Cargo *(the most practical & readable around there). Too bad ths is a limited edition.

    PS: Thank you for sharing those.

  • That Zenith Type 20 GMT does not belong on the list. It has a tiny 25.6mm Elite movement swimming in a 48mm case. Either make the case smaller, or if they want to make large watches, start spending money on developing appropriate movements.

  • The Zenith Captain GMT and the Montblanc TimeWalker GMT missing from this great list. Thanks so much for all your great work and attention to this wonderful arena.

  • The two Rolexes are my favorite… I’m also very curious how the IWC looks in person.
