  • 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.
