My current top 15 GMT/ UTC /Dual Time watches

 

 

Sinn 857 UTC Testaf LH-Cargo: Indicating the second zone time (our home time) through the 24-hour-hand with the yellow airplane as arrow. Sinn uses an ETA-calibre. The watch is a special and limited edition of 777 pieces realized together with Lufthansa-Cargo and it is tested as a pilot watch according to TESTAF in Germany.

Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Manufacture Edition Hübner: Indicating the second zone time (our home time) through the little window at the “9 o´clock” position. The two push pieces will make the hour hand move in one-hour-steps forward or backward. The push piece in the crown is a pre-selector for the crowns functions: winding, setting the date or setting the hours/minutes.

Guys, this is a world premier (!) in an Ulysse Nardin watch.

The special edition with a Grand Feu enamel dial is limited to only 30 pieces and is only available here in Vienna at Uhrmachermeister Hübner who celebrates his 100th anniversary this year. Ulysse Nardin uses an in-house calibre.

  • 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.
