Swiss watch brand DAVOSA presents a GMT version of its best-selling Ternos Professional watch.
In the GMT version, a 24-hour display, the distinguishing feature of the second time zone, is displayed prominently on a rotatable diving bezel, giving the Ternos its characteristic sporty yet functional appearance. The coloured bezel inlay is made of high-tech ceramic and is extremely scratch-resistant with a hardness of 1250 HV. It is also heat and corrosion-resistant, and proffers a fine feel thanks to a high-gloss polish.
Until now, DAVOSA has offered the Ternos Professional GMT in a monochrome black version and in combination with a brilliant blue, but fans of the brand requested additional options. DAVOSA has now succeeded in producing a deep red, high-tech ceramic that contrasts superbly with black or dark blue, and yet forms a lasting unit with the dark nuances.
The scale of the 24-hour display, which consists of a triangle, Arabic numerals and dots, is then engraved into the bezel by a high-precision laser before being filled with the contrasting colour. This creates two new variants of the Ternos Professional GMT TT in red-blue and red-black. At DAVOSA, the appendix TT stands for ‘two-tone’.
The proven quality features of the Ternos Professional GMT, with some additional refinement, can also be found in the two new additions to the series.
The well-proportioned, 200 metre-deep, (20 ATM) water-resistant case made from surgical steel with a screw-in crown proffers a moderate diameter of 42 mm and a height of 15.5 mm. From lug to lug, the Ternos Professional measures 50.5 mm across, and hides a reliable automatic DAVOSA calibre DAV 3032, which scores with a power reserve of 42 hours, under its fully threaded, screw-in case back.
The flat sapphire crystal with a magnified area has an anti-reflective coating on the inside. It permits an unimpeded view of the gloss-black, polished dial, with indices and hands equipped with Super-LumiNova in BGW09 quality. This guarantees excellent readability at all times, even in poor visibility.
The GMT hand stands out clearly against the dark dial in either red or blue, depending on the colour of the bezel.
The Ternos Professional TT GMT with its 22 mm wide lug also offers a wide variety of strap combinations: it comes as standard with either a 3-link stainless steel strap: the TriaLink strap, or a 5-link version: the PentaLink strap. Thanks to a denser use of materials, improved clasp mechanics and individually screwed links, the TriaLink and PentaLink straps are stronger and more durable than all previous versions.
Moreover, you still have the additional option of purchasing a textile NATO strap or a newly developed, integrated rubber strap, so every wearer can personally configure their desired model and equip it as they see fit.
This lightweight, 204-gram mechanical masterpiece is available from specialist retailers from late July, starting at a retail price of 1,398 Euros.
