Italian watch brand Out of Order presents a new series of GMT watches inspired by world’s most popular destinations like the ancient city of Rome, the markets of Marrakech, the gorgeous hillsides of Medellin and the metropolis of Tokyo.
Out of Order GMT ROMA CAPITALE
Rome, the capital of the Italian Republic, has influenced the globe with its cultural, artistic and architectural achievements. Out of Order dedicates the Swiss GMT Roma Capitale to the Eternal City.
The Out of Order GMT ROMA CAPITALE watch features a bright blue dial with a sandblasted Full Lume texture with glossy black indexes, matte black hands and black PVD GMT hand with a scarlet red Superluminova® insert.
The rotating bezel shows off green and red Arabic numerals and a white luminous dot at 12 o’clock, all echoing the colors of the Italian flag. The strap is crafted from genuine, vegetable-tanned vintage leather in homage to the archaeological area of the Imperial Forums to remind us of the power of the Roman Empire.
The laser-engraving on the caseback depicts the Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Lateran Obelisk and part of the Imperial Forum in the foreground, while the majolica tiles used in the floors of Roman houses during the Roman Empire are reproduced in the background.
Out of Order GMT MARRAKESH
Marrakech, the ocher city of Morocco has attracted people from points near and far with its colors, architecture and dense, labyrinthine streets connection a network of souks offering everything from fabrics to traditional slippers, food, spices and the famous Moroccan ceramics desired worldwide.
The Out of Order Swiss GMT Marrakech watch impresses with its light brown, sunburnt finish on a dial struck like a coin. The coin motif is inspired by this Moroccan city’s use of cash as the preferred method of exchange over ATMs or credit cards.
The indexes, applied with a multicolor Superluminova® insert, reflect the colors of Moroccan majolica. At night, each of them offers a different brightness to recall the multi-colored lanterns of Marrakech that light up when the sun goes down.
The two colors chosen for the rotating bezel are sand and dark green; the first in homage to the desert, the second in homage to the traditional mint green tea, a symbol of Moroccan hospitality.
The laser-engraved caseback faithfully reproduces the traditional designs of Moroccan majolica.
Out of Order GMT MEDELLIN
This model pays tribute to Colombia, a South American nation rich in contrasts. The Swiss GMT Medellin features a frosted white dial with a sandblasted texture. Adorning this honest surface you’ll find applied indexes and a gold-plated GMT hand filled with Superluminova® BGW9.
The words Damaged in Italy are spelled out in yellow, and 330 ft = 100 meters in blue, and finally GMT is rendered in red to reflect the traditional yellow-blue-red color scheme of the Colombian flag.
The bezel is crafted from IP Gun aluminum to reinforce its solidity and durability, while the laser-engraved caseback recalls the speedometer of an airplane used by Colombians.
The strap is cut from genuine, vegetable-tanned vintage leather featuring a fire print that echoes the typical jungle vegetation.
Out of Order GMT Tokyo Shibuya
The Out of Order GMT Tokyo Shibuya watch is dedicated to Shibuya, the historic district of Tokyo where tradition and modernity coexist side by side. Walking down the street of Shibuya, you’ll see enormous LED screens, towering shopping malls, and an assortment of luxury hotels and restaurants of all types.
It is using the traditional patterns found on the walls of historic Japanese restaurants that our Out of Order designers have reproduced, and which represents the Rising Sun on the dial.
Looking at the light gray sunburnt finish on the Full Lume effect dial in the absence of light, you will notice that only the dark gray part illuminate, creating a fascinating wave effect. The laser-engraved caseback depicts the design of a uniquely Japanese art form: the manhole cover. The one you see here sports an image of Osaka Castle during cherry blossom season.
All four models are equipped with a Swiss Ronda 515 24h quartz movement. Each one is guaranteed waterproof up to 10 ATM (100 meters) and boasts a 2-year international warranty.
They have a 316L stainless steel cases (44 mm x 1.25 mm), bi-directional 316L steel rotating bezels with hand-brushed two-tone aluminum inserts and colored engraved numbering. Each cover is crafted from flat sapphire-coated glass with magnifying lens at 3 o’clock.
The screw-down crowns are made from 316L stainless steel embossed with our logo and featuring a black date window. On the reverse you’ll find a 316L stainless steel caseback with engraving unique to the design and a strap cut from genuine, vegetable-tanned and hand-stitched vintage leather.
