Out of Order GMT New Models

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.

Out of Order GMT ROMA CAPITALE watch

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.

Out of Order GMT ROMA CAPITALE

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.

Out of Order GMT ROMA CAPITALE

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.

Out of Order GMT MARRAKESH

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.

Out of Order GMT MARRAKESH

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.

Out of Order GMT MEDELLIN

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.

Out of Order GMT MEDELLIN

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.

Out of Order GMT MEDELLIN

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.

Out of Order GMT Tokyo Shibuya

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.

Out of Order GMT Tokyo Shibuya

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.

Out of Order GMT Tokyo Shibuya

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.

Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White

Bell & Ross has released a white dial version of the BR 05 GMT watch.

The BR 05 collection was launched in 2019 with a classic three hand watch with a 40 mm case. In 2021, the first BR 05 GMT with dual time zone was introduced. This 41 mm watch features a black dial.

White is a common colour in watchmaking. It is however quite rare within the Bell & Ross range. This shortcoming has been remedied with this BR 05 GMT White which follows on from the first Bell and Ross BR 05 GMT watch with a black dial.

Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White

In addition to the hour, minutes and seconds functions, the BR 05 GMT White has a red hand for indicating a second time zone, displayed on a 24-hour scale with day/night indication. Additionally, the watch indicates the date via a large aperture at 3 o’clock.

Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White watch with steel bracelet

The 41 mm case of the Bell and Ross BR 05 GMT White is entirely made of steel. Its finishes alternate between polished and satin-brushed.

The hour and minute hands, numerals and indexes are covered with photo luminescent Super-LumiNova. The open caseback with sapphire crystal, characteristic of the BR 05 family, allows the original oscillating weight to be admired at 360°. Its design is inspired by a sports car rim.

Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White watch with rubber strap

The Bell and Ross GMT White is powered by the self-winding BR-CAL 325 calibre. The second time zone hand completes one revolution of the dial in 24 hours. It displays the time via a 24-hour scale, painted on the flange ring. This element is painted in two different tones: one for the day (between 6am and 6 pm) and the other for the night (between 6 pm and 6 am).

Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White

Designed in steel, the integrated bracelet adopts a satin finish. Only the centre attachment links are polished. A second rubber strap is available, for a more sporty style and a more attractive price.

CuleM Skyline GMT

British watch brand CuleM has launched its second collection, the Skyline GMT. These timepieces showcase the iconic skylines of London and New York City.

Founded by British entrepreneur Matthew Cule, CuleM creates Swiss made automatic GMT watches with unique designs inspired by the world. In 2019, the brand made its debut with the World GMT collection, which offered three unique interpretations of the world map.

The CuleM Skyline GMT watches feature the stunning and instantly recognizable cityscapes of London and New York City on both silver and black sunray dials.

CuleM Skyline GMT watch London with Black Dial

The timepieces feature a top-grade ETA2893-2 automatic movement and are housed in 40mm stainless steel or black PVD cases. The dials are protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, and the open case backs display an engraving of 24 world time zones.

CuleM Skyline GMT watch London with white dial

All CuleM Skyline GMT watches also boast a five-year movement guarantee. They are water-resistant up to 50 meters. Each watch comes with two Italian leather straps with interchangeable pins, plus a third strap or bracelet of your choice, and a unique travel trunk watch box.

CuleM Skyline GMT London Watch

London was a natural choice for the Skyline GMT dials as it is the home of Greenwich Mean Time. The Meridian line in Greenwich is depicted on the London Skyline GMT, starting at 12 o’clock and finishing in the centre of the dial. The dial showcases CuleM’s distinctive interpretation of London’s landmarks with intricate detail, and these include the London Eye, the Tower of London, the Gherkin, Tower Bridge and Big Ben, amongst others.

CuleM Skyline GMT watch New York with black dial

New York is another inspirational global city, and like London is a world class centre of culture, an economic powerhouse, and a beacon of freedom and inclusivity.

CuleM Skyline GMT watch New York with white dial

Iconic buildings displayed with exquisite precision include Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Uniquely, the sunray dial is centered on the torch of the Statue of Liberty.

CuleM Skyline GMT New York Watch

CuleM remains committed to donating 3 percent of its sales to conservation and humanitarian charities. For the Skyline GMT Collection, CuleM has pledged to make contributions to charities which have a local impact in each of its showcased cities.

London based charity Blueprint for All, formally known as the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, runs high impact inclusivity programmes which “work with disadvantaged young people and communities, providing tangible opportunities that enables them to thrive, whilst driving systemic change in organisations and society”.

New York City charity GrowNYC has a mission “to improve New York City’s quality of life through environmental programmes that transform communities and empower all New Yorkers to secure a clean and healthy environment for future generations”.

CuleM will also continue to donate to its usual UK based global partners, The Rainforest Trust, Ecologi, and Action Aid. To date, CuleM has planted over 18,000 trees and protected over 5.7 million square metres of rainforest.

The CuleM Skyline GMT watch has a retail price of £1,095.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT

MONTA presents the second generation of its successful Skyquest GMT series.

Dedicated to globetrotters, the MONTA Skyquest watch was first introduced at Baselworld 2017. However, that prototype never made it to production. The first production Skyquest was released at Baselworld 2018.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch with pepsi bezel

Sportier than its predecessor, the new Skyquest comes with enhanced quality features. In addition to the new case design, new dial, new GMT hand, and new patent pending bezel technology, this automatic watch also features a refined quick-adjust clasp as well as the aluminum bezel-inserts from the previous generation.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch

The new solid red GMT hand comes with BGW9 Swiss Superluminova applied triangular tip. It is unique to the Skyquest when compared to the other GMT models in the MONTA collection.

To maintain true sport watch heritage, the dial has been completely redesigned with new markers, a minute track, and the updated MONTA logo first introduced on the Noble model in 2020. New hour markers with full gold or rhodium surrounds filled with BGW9 Swiss Superluminova were drawn inward from the rehaut to increase legibility.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch

The model designation and depth rating were inverted to provide better balance with the MONTA name and logo above the hand stack. Two dial choices are available: matte black and gilt (gold) black. The MONTA Skyquest GMT watch has a date window at 6 o’clock.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch with blue and red pepsi bezel

The anodized aluminum bezel-insert enhances the sportiness, and its matte finish perfectly complements the dial. The color tones are warm, and the printing is sharp. The new bezel is wider with larger printing of the 24-hour scale. Swiss made, the Skyquest GMT is available with three bezel options: Blue + Red, Black + Red and All Black.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch with coke bezel

MONTA worked directly with Sellita to create a unique hand height allowing the case proportions to balance with the space required under the crystal while maintaining an adequate thickness. The team at MONTA reshaped the case by focusing on a softer crown guard, a reduced lug-to-lug measurement and removal of the previous inner lug chamfer. However, they kept the same thickness and beauty that was so obvious in the first generation.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch with black bezel

Finally, the renowned MONTA clasp was updated with a new flip lock mechanism and a greater curve to the deployant pieces, further maximizing comfort on the wrist.

MONTA SKYQUEST GMT watch with new bezel design

The completely redesigned bezel offers a tactile feel that is precise and memorable. Three patents have been filed to protect the ingenuity of this easily serviceable bezel assembly.

MONTA Skyquest GMT watch movement

The new Skyquest GMT watch is powered by the Swiss made MONTA M-23 (Sellita SW330-2 ) self-winding mechanical movement. Visible through the exhibition case-back, this calibre offers a power reserve of 55 hours.

MONTA has acquired enough Sellita SW330-2 movements for manufacturing at least 300 total units in the preorder. Delivery is expected to commence the first half of November 2022. More units will be available in 2023.

Presently, this timepiece can be pre-ordered for a price of $2,190, with estimated delivery in November 2022. Thereafter, the suggested retail price of the new MONTA Skyquest GMT watch will be $2,435.

Equipped with a reliable automatic movement offering very practical GMT function, this sporty-elegant watch is fitted on a steel bracelet that can be quickly interchanged with its second strap.

The Mido Ocean Star GMT special edition watch has a lustrous high-tech ceramic bezel that perfectly complements the deep velvety blue of the dial. The dual time zone display allows the wearer to read local time and the time in a distant destination.

Mido Ocean Star GMT Special Edition

The diamond-cut hands with central grooves indicate the hours and minutes in the first time zone. A red varnished hand points towards the flange of the dial, which is marked with 24 hour intervals, to create an intuitive and clearly legible second time zone. Its display places daytime hours against a red background, and night-time hours against a blue background.

Mido Ocean Star GMT Special Edition

White Super-LumiNova® on each of the hands, the indexes, and the dot at 12 o’clock on the bezel allows the wearer to keep track of time, even in the dark. An aperture at 3 o’clock displays the date. A sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment protects the dial.

The screwed-down stainless steel case back of the new Ocean Star GMT Special Edition is engraved with time zones and serial number.

Mido Ocean Star GMT Special Edition

The self-winding Caliber 80 provides up to 80 hours of power reserve. Its components are finely decorated in line with watchmaking tradition, with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo on the oscillating weight.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT

Swiss luxury watch brand TAG Heuer has added a new GMT model to the Aquaracer Professional 300 range, which was re-launched last year.

The new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT comes with a stylish blue, yellow and white color palette. These shades represent the sky, the sun, the water and the crashing waves near the shore.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT watch with three links steel bracelet

Boasting the signature horizontal lines, the deep midnight blue dial is offset by white lume-filled hands and hour markers. The rhodium-plated central sweep seconds hand has a yellow lacquer tip, and a luminous insert designed to inform divers that the watch is running during a dive.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT watch with blue rubber strap

The two-tone (blue and white) bi-directional rotating bezel in ceramic is extremely scratch-proof and fade-resistant. The 24-hour GMT scale is engraved into the ceramic and then filled with contrasting colors: black for day time and white for night. The GMT hand is finished in yellow lacquer and tipped with luminous material.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT watch with bi-color ceramic bezel

Beyond these fresh, peppy details and the addition of a second time zone, this automatic GMT timepiece carries the same form and functionality of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 diving watch collection introduced in 2021.

The instantly recognizable 12-sided bezel ties the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional family to previous generations. And as before, every other facet has a fluted edge so that the wearer can grip and adjust the bezel with ease and confidence. The crown is still screwed and protected, and the 43-mm case continues to offer 300 meters of water resistance.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT

The new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT is driven by the Calibre 7, a Swiss Made automatic GMT movement with a power reserve of up to 50 hours. The watch displays the date at 6 o’clock under a ‘Cyclops’ magnifier.

The solid stainless steel case back is decorated with a repeating hexagon motif and the famous scaphander diving suit that also first appeared on the TAG Heuer Aquaracer case in 2004.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

Swiss watch brand FORMEX presents the new REEF GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M collection.

An evolution of the original REEF diver, the FORMEX REEF GMT blends refined styling with rugged durability. This adventure-ready travel watch displays three different time zones. It still maintains the REEF collection’s robust build quality, patented interchangeable bezel and bracelet systems. The timepiece comes with an exhibition case back to show the beautifully decorated SW330-2 GMT movement.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

Its distinctive case shape provides protection for the screw-down winding crown, while also offering a stunning visual symmetry.

Despite now featuring a sapphire display case back and being capable of simultaneously tracking three different time zones, the 42mm case of the new FORMEX REEF GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M still measures just 11.4mm thick, and it also offers an identical water-resistance rating of 300 meters / 1,000 feet.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

The new FORMEX REEF GMT features the patented tool-free interchangeable bezel system that first debuted on the REEF diver, and all bezels are interchangeable between the two models. This permits owners to instantly swap out their bezels to customize their watch, or to quickly remove them for easy cleaning. Since the REEF GMT is not explicitly a dive watch, its bezel system has been updated to include a piston ratcheting system that provides it with bidirectional motion.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

Additionally, as the bezel itself features a 24-hour scale, it now offers a 48-click design to perfectly correspond with its intended GMT functionality. To ensure maximum durability, the bezels are made from zirconium oxide ceramic or stainless steel with a unique sunburst finish, with engraved 24-hour scales filled with gold and black lacquer or luminous Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 Grade A.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

FORMEX REEF GMT owners will also have the option to purchase additional bezels separately from the FORMEX Online Boutique.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M on Mesh bracelet

The FORMEX REEF GMT marks the introduction of a new Milanese mesh bracelet to the collection, further expanding the strap and bracelet possibilities for REEF owners. Unlike traditional mesh bracelet designs, the FORMEX Milanese bracelet includes the same multi-position adjustable clasp that can be found on the bracelet of the REEF dive watch.

Formex Reef GMT 42mm Automatic Chronometer - Black Dial on Bicolor Ceramic Bezel with and Mesh bracelet

Additionally, since the bracelet itself features a screw-in link construction, the actual length can be adjusted to a specific wrist size, allowing owners to take full-advantage of the clasp’s 10mm fine-adjustment extension system.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

In addition to the new Milanese mesh bracelet, the REEF GMT will also be available with the option of either the solid-link bracelet from REEF diver, a rubber strap or three new leather straps that feature a carbon fiber composite folding clasp with a patented fine-adjustment system.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

The dials and color-matched date wheels fitted to the REEF GMT collection are created entirely in-house by FORMEX’s own dial manufacture, located in the Jura mountains of Switzerland. Each dial requires a complex process of hand-applying individual layers of color on top of a radial sunray finish in order to achieve the subtle Dégradé (gradient) effect that gently darkens towards the outer edge.

Formex Reef GMT 42mm Automatic Chronometer - Black Dial with Rose Gold elements on Black Ceramic Bezel on Black leather strap with croco pattern

The bold rehaut-style hour markers are triangle shaped and hand-applied to the surface of the dial, clearly pointing towards the broad hour and minute hands for maximum legibility. Additionally, each one of the individually finished indexes features the same detailed finishing that can be found on the hands, consisting of beveled mirror-polished edges with brushed top surfaces.

Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M

The FORMEX logo is also hand-applied to the dial. All of the hour markers along with each one of the hands are filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 Grade A to offer a long-lasting blue glow, even in the darkest of conditions.

The FORMEX REEF GMT is equipped with the Swiss-Made, self-winding Sellita SW330-2 movement. Offerig a power reserve of approximately 56 hours, this automatic calibre is fully decorated, complete with blued screws and a custom-manufactured skeletonized rotor. The Chronometer certified SW330-2 is produced in Sellita’s highest quality grade, and it offers GMT functionality with an independently-adjustable 24-hour hand.

Montblanc 1858 GMT Automatic Date

Montblanc presents a brand new series of GMT watches from its 1858 collection.

Where most GMT timepieces indicate the second time zone with an additional hand, the new Montblanc 1858 GMT model presents its GMT indication without hands that is very intuitive and highly legible.

Montblanc 1858 GMT Automatique Date 42mm Blue

This ingenious system indicates the second time zone with a red square that moves around the outside of the dial. This red square is positioned next to a fixed black or blue anodized aluminium bezel that shows the 24-hour clock so the user immediately knows if it is day or night in the second time zone too. The beauty of this system is that it also indicates the half-hours with a red rectangle for the half-hours and a full red square for the hours.

Montblanc 1858 GMT Automatique Date 42mm Blue

There is also a date at three o’clock and a central seconds hand indication, but the Montblanc 1858 GMT watch isn’t just about cool functions, it is also about good looks as this attractive everyday sports watch is made to impress. It comes in a 42 mm stainless steel case with a choice of a black or blue sunray dial, both of which are adorned with blue luminescent hands and indexes.

The Montblanc 1858 GMT watch now also comes with a tapered, interchangeable, stainless-steel bracelet with a fine adjustment system for precision fitting, which can be switched out for a black or blue rubber strap in seconds.

Montblanc 1858 GMT Automatique Date 42mm Black

Another nice surprise is the titanium engraved case back showing the planet’s continents and oceans, along with the names of cities in each of the 24 time zones, offering a worldtime indication.

Montblanc 1858 GMT Automatique Date 42mm Black

The engraving of the planet is achieved using an engraving technique that is rare on such a small scale. This complex process begins with the titanium being structured by laser to create the relief of the image. The texture and colour of the engraving are also achieved by laser, creating an authentic 3D rendering that provides depth and realism.

The case back can be customized to include the owner’s hometown in red and their local time zone. Another nice touch is that Central European Time, which is usually represented by Paris, has been changed to Villeret, Montblanc’s Swiss watchmaking headquarters.

Seiko 5 Sports GMT

Seiko has expanded its Seiko 5 Sports family by adding a new GMT series.

Introduced in 1968, Seiko 5 Sports series of mechanical watches has been renowned for their durability and reliability. In 2019, the collection was relaunched, by introducing new active and youthful watch models.

Now, for the first time, Seiko 5 Sports collection welcomes a new GMT series powered by the Caliber 4R34. Based on the tried and trusted platform of Caliber 4R, this new series offers the convenience of a GMT hand in a case that is just 0.1 mm thicker than the existing one.

Seiko 5 Sports GMT watch SSK001
Seiko 5 Sports GMT SSK001

Designed for the international traveler, the Seiko 5 Sports GMT watch is now available in three color ways: black, blue and orange.

To enhance readability, the GMT hands and bezels use different colors. For example, the GMT hands are in bright red on the black and blue dial versions and in black for the version in orange.

Seiko 5 Sports GMT watch SSK003

Just like the time of day hands and indexes, the GMT hand has a generous layer of Lumibrite to ensure legibility in low light conditions. The two-toned rotating bezel allows the user to quickly differentiate the night and day hours.

The bezel-insert is made of Seiko’s Hardlex glass to deliver the high level of durability for which the Seiko 5 Sports collection is renowned.

Seiko 5 Sports GMT watch SSK005

The design of the case and dial draws inspiration from one of Seiko’s best-loved sports watches, known to enthusiasts as the Seiko SKX series. The five-row bracelet is a new design also inspired by the original SKX series in which the middle rows are polished to create a contrast with the solid feel of the rows that bind them.

All the three Seiko 5 Sports GMT watches will be available at selected Seiko Boutiques and other retail stores worldwide in July 2022.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

Unveiled at Watches and Wonders 2022, the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante watch unites the minimalist character of the collection Tonda PF with an innovative yet simple-to-use second timezone complication.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

Useful for globetrotters, this world-premier complication features two superimposed hour hands: one in rhodium-plated gold and the other in rose gold.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

Pressing the pusher at 8 o’clock causes the upper rhodium-plated gold hand dedicated to local time to jump one hour forward, thereby revealing the rose gold hand which displays time in the wearer’s place of residence, known as “home time”.

Once the second timezone information is no longer required, pressing the crown-integrated rose gold pushbutton repositions the rhodium-plated hand on top of the rose gold hand in the same manner as a split seconds chronograph hand. This makes it an extremely user-friendly complication entirely in keeping with the brand spirit.

The innovative flyback function is achieved through the integration of a sophisticated mechanism. Operating this intuitive complication enables purists to free the dial surface from an additional time display when it is not necessary. This action reduces the amount of information down to the essentials, encourages instinctive reading and helps reveal the quality and care lavished on each and every detail.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

This timepiece is driven by Calibre PF051, a self-winding movement with rose gold micro-rotor. Visible through the sapphire crystal case-back, the movement employs decorative techniques like Côtes de Genève, Perlage and Grain d’Orge guilloché.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante watch

The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante has a 40mm diameter stainless steel case and a knurled bezel made of platinum. The watch is secured on a stainless steel bracelet enhanced with brushed and polished finishing.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

The fine barleycorn guilloché pattern dial features a subtle “Milano Blue” shade. It can be carried away by the refined visual effect of the guilloché work surrounded by the sandblasted minutes track.

Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda PF GMT Rattrapante

The angle taken by the light draws the gaze out from the centre towards the rim. Such light effects serve to highlight the interaction between the shiny and matt surfaces of the finely knurled single-piece platinum bezel.

TUDOR BLACK BAY PRO

Boasting advanced aesthetic and technical features, TUDOR BLACK BAY PRO comes with a 39-millimetre diameter case, a fixed steel bezel and a Manufacture Calibre with built-in GMT function.

Black Bay Pro is an entirely new model with a dual time zone feature, a technical complication that establishes local time without losing sight of the time in another time zone.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro Reference 79470 with black Jacquard strap with a yellow band

Compact, robust and sporty, this model boasts many unique aesthetic details and celebrates the spirit of the technical watches that TUDOR has produced for professionals throughout its history.

TUDOR BLACK BAY PRO watch with a black Jacquard strap with a yellow band

Recognisable by its 24-hour graduated satin-brushed fixed bezel and its yellow 24-hour “Snowflake” hand, Black Bay Pro is powered by the TUDOR Manufacture Calibre MT5652 with built-in GMT function.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro Reference 79470

Inspired by the iconic Tudor watches like Oyster Prince, the Black Bay Pro is a tool-watch designed for professional use.

Whilst this model is part of the Black Bay line, it introduces many new and unique aesthetic details, starting with its winding crown which has been entirely redesigned for maximum grip. Reminiscent of the curves found on the crowns of the brand’s historical technical watches, this new component is set flush to the middle case band so that its tube is not visible.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro Reference 79470 watch lume

In another new feature, the applied hour markers on the dial are made from monobloc luminous ceramic. This feature enhances the technical aesthetic of Black Bay Pro whilst considerably increasing the luminous surface of the hour markers.

A new bracelet clasp, with a TUDOR “T-fit” rapid size-adjustment system, completes the list of new innovations included in this model. Easy to use, requiring no tools and offering five positions, the “T-fit” system allows the wearer to carry out a fine, instant adjustment of up to 8mm on the clasp.

TUDOR BLACK BAY PRO watch with steel bracelet

On the Black Bay Pro model, the reference time is indicated by an angular yellow “Snowflake” hand, an aesthetic hallmark of TUDOR, which completes a lap of the dial every 24 hours.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro Reference 79470

Local time is indicated by another, shorter “Snowflake” hand set by a jumping hour, which can be moved either backwards or forwards. The date, displayed through an aperture positioned at 3 o’clock, is coupled with the local time hand so that when setting the time and passing midnight in retrograde, it instantly jumps to the previous day.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro Reference 79470

The Manufacture Calibre MT5652 with built-in GMT function was developed by TUDOR for the Black Bay Pro model. It illustrates the technical development process which is unique to TUDOR, drawing on adaptable architecture capable of including new functions into its manufactured movements rather than resorting to additional modules.

It has been designed to ensure robustness, longevity, reliability and precision, as has its variable inertia balance, which is maintained by a sturdy traversing bridge with a two-point fixation.

TUDOR BLACK BAY PRO watch with a hybrid strap in black rubber and leather

Together with its non-magnetic silicon balance spring, the Manufacture Calibre MT5652 is certified as a chronometer by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), with its performance going beyond the standards set by this independent institute.

In fact, where COSC allows an average variation in the daily running of a watch of between -4 and +6 seconds in relation to absolute time in a single movement, TUDOR insists on between -2 and +4 seconds’ variation in its running when it is completely assembled. The power reserve of the Manufacture Calibre MT5652 is about 70 hours.

For the Black Bay Pro, TUDOR has selected a black Jacquard strap with a yellow band woven by these traditional craftsmen.

The model is also available with a stainless steel bracelet inspired by the folding riveted bracelets made by TUDOR in the 1950s and 1960s. These were famous for having visible rivet heads on the side of the bracelet that held the links together.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro with Riveted steel bracelet

The links also had a distinct stepped construction. These two aesthetic details are found on the current bracelet, which also integrates modern manufacturing methods with solid links and laser-finished rivet-style heads. Finally, the Black Bay Pro is also available with a hybrid strap in black rubber and leather with a folding clasp.

TUDOR Black Bay Pro watches all straps

The Black Bay line features dials inspired by the TUDOR divers’ watches produced during the 1950s. It borrows the characteristic angular hands known to collectors as “Snowflake” from models that appeared in the brand’s 1969 catalogue. Its unprotected crown and the characteristics of its case are reminiscent of the first generations of TUDOR divers’ watches.

For this timepiece, TUDOR offers a five-year transferable guarantee with no requirement for registration or periodic maintenance checks.

TUDOR BLACK BAY GMT S&G

The TUDOR Black Bay GMT model with integrated Manufacture Calibre MT5652 is now also available in an S&G (Steel & Gold) version.

On the Black Bay GMT S&G model, the reference time is indicated by an angular “Snowflake” hand, an aesthetic hallmark of TUDOR, which completes a lap of the dial every 24 hours.

Local time is indicated by another, shorter “Snowflake” hand set by a jumping hour, which can be moved either backwards or forwards.

TUDOR BLACK BAY GMT S&G

The date, displayed through an aperture positioned at 3 o’clock, is connected to the local time hand so that when setting the time and passing midnight in retrograde, it instantly jumps to the previous day.

With the 24-hour graduated bidirectional rotating bezel and “24-hour” hand, this timepiece can also keep track of a third time zone. On the anodised aluminium disc of the bezel, the graduations for the twelve daylight hours are gold-coloured on the brown section with the night-time hours on the black section.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II New Model (reference 126720 VTNR)

Rolex has launched a new variant of its Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II watch. Endowed with an eye catching green and black theme, this new reference (126720 VTNR) comes with a number of surprising design features. Firstly, its crown and crown guard are on the left side of the watch case. The date aperture and the Cyclops lens have also moved and appear at 9 o’clock.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II New Model (reference 126720 VTNR)

This new Rolex GMT watch in Oystersteel features a bi-colour monobloc Cerachrom bezel insert in green and black ceramic. Equipped with calibre 3285, the new the GMT-Master II displays the hours, minutes, seconds and date, as well as an additional time zone in 24-hour format.

The black lacquer dial features 18K white gold hands and indexes. The GMT hand is green lacquered. All the hands and hour-markers are filled with Chromalight, which offers a striking blue glow.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II New Model (reference 126720 VTNR)

With traditional hour, minute and seconds hands, a triangle-tipped 24-hour hand, and a bidirectional rotatable bezel with a 24-hour graduated Cerachrom insert, the GMT-Master II can display the time in two time zones simultaneously: either the local time and the reference time, or the local time and that of an alternative time zone. The date is synchronized with the local time.

The moulded, recessed graduations and numerals of the GMT bezel are coated with platinum via PVD. The bezel can also be turned with ease thanks to its knurled edge, which offers excellent grip.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II New Model (reference 126720 VTNR)

The 40 mm Oyster case of the new GMT-Master II is waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). Its middle case is crafted from a solid block of Oystersteel. The case back, edged with fine fluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The Triplock winding crown is protected by an integral crown guard. The sapphire crystal is fitted with a Cyclops lens for easy reading of the date.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II New Model (reference 126720 VTNR)

The beating heart of the new Rolex GMT-Master II watch (Calibre 3285) incorporates the patented Chronergy escapement, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic fields. The movement is fitted with an optimized blue Parachrom hairspring, manufactured by Rolex in a paramagnetic alloy. The blue Parachrom hairspring is equipped with a Rolex overcoil, ensuring the calibre’s regularity in any position. The oscillator is fitted on the high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, increasing the movement’s shock resistance.

Rolex Calibre 3285

Rolex Calibre 3285 is equipped with a self-winding module via a Perpetual rotor. The power reserve of this in-house self-winding movement is approximately 70 hours.

MING 22.01 GMT

MING presents its latest dual time watch, the 22.01 GMT.

The 22.01 bridges the gap between the new 37-series and outgoing 17-series, with design cues taken from both dial architecture and case design.

MING 22.01 GMT

The dial itself takes inspiration from two very different sources. Firstly, the serene Kyoto dial reflects the textures and colours of traditional Japanese gardens with placed stone and perfect moss, overlaid with the impression of water conveyed by an intermediate sapphire dial. The dial has a dark green outer chapter ring and grey center, both with grained texture, and GMT markings in silver.

MING 22.01 GMT

The second Gilt dial is a punchier, modern take on early brass and gilt watches. It features with a dark cyan chapter ring, dark gold center, gilt GMT markings and grained texture.

MING 22.01 GMT

As the base metal dial is overlaid with sapphire, it exhibits the brand’s signature inversion under certain lighting conditions. During inversion, the underlying colour disappears completely, and multiple internal reflections deliver dynamic layering.

The metallic GMT markings are on the top of the sapphire dial to retain legibility, and hour indices are on the underside of the top crystal in HyCeram X1 formulation. Both dials are accompanied by colour-matched GMT hands and the highly legible handset from the 20 Series and 17.09.

MING 22.01 GMT watch

The 38mm case draws inspiration from both the 20-series and 37-series and features alternating brushed and polished layers; it is a monobloc construction in grade 5 titanium and without spacers, and water resistant to 100m. The lugs retain the signature flare and feature a continuous twist highlighted by brushing that runs continuously from the case flanks through the underside of the lugs.

MING 22.01 GMT watch case back

MING 22.01 GMT features a sapphire display back. The watch is equipped with the automatic-winding Sellita SW330-2 in a black circular grained finish with a skeletonized rotor. The intermediate crown position adjusts the 24-hour GMT hand unidirectionally in one-hour increments, and the third crown position hacks the movement and adjusts all hands simultaneously.

MING 22.01 GMT

The 22.01 is assembled by Manufacture Schwarz-Etienne in Switzerland, finished with Barenia leather straps by Manufacture Jean Rousseau and accompanied by a leather travel pouch by Studio Koji Sato. The keeperless tuck buckle with half-hole micro-adjustment provides a comfortable wearing experience.

MING 22.01 GMT

The brand is offering 300 pieces of each variant for existing customers, and a further 700 of each variant for the general public.

MING 22.01 GMT

The MING 22.01 GMT is priced at CHF 3,250 for either variant, inclusive of shipping worldwide.

In August 2020, Grand Seiko released a limited edition Quartz GMT watch exclusively created for Isetan Shinjuku department store in Japan.

The Grand Seiko Isetan Shinjuku limited model SBGN017 features a 39mm diameter stainless steel case. The hand-finished white dial spotlights a unique stamped pattern inspired the bark of a large tree. This dual-time wristwatch is equipped with the 9F86 quartz movement, a recent addition to the brand’s illustrious 9F family.

Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series New Models, References SPB303, SPB305, SPB307, SPB309 and SPB311

Seiko expands its Presage Sharp Edged Series by launching five new models inspired by the traditions of Japan. One is a limited edition GMT, two feature a new open heart movement and two offer a multi-hand dial with power reserve, day and date displays.

Like all the existing watches in this series, the dials of these new additions are adorned with the Asanoha (hemp leaf) pattern that has been used in Japanese fabrics ever since the Heian period over a thousand years ago.

The new Seiko Presage Sharp Edged GMT boasts a wide dial opening allows the time of day, GMT function, power reserve and date to be read at a glance. The dial’s rich texture is complemented by the depth of its color, a blue that Ukiyoe artists over the centuries made famous in images of Mt Fuji in high summer. The GMT display ring shares the same blue and is in ceramic.

This Presage watch is offered as a limited edition of 900 and will be available in July at the Seiko Boutiques and selected retail partners worldwide.

The other four new watches in the 2022 Sharp Edged Series all share a new case design. While it retains all the strength and angularity that gives the series its distinctive look, there is a new face with a mirror finish between the top and side surfaces that adds a new sparkle to the watch. The elegance of the new design is further enhanced by the inward tapering of the case.

Both SPB305 and SPB307 are powered by Caliber 6R38, which is a new addition to the 6R family of movements. It is specially adapted so as to allow the wearer to see the beat of the escapement through the opening at the 9 o’clock position. Furthermore, it offers a power reserve of 70 hours.

Seiko Presage Sharp Edged SPB309 and SPB311 models feature Caliber 6R21. It displays day, date and power reserve indicators at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions respectively. This is the first appearance of this multi-hand movement in the Sharp Edged Series.

Each of the four dials is in a different traditional Japanese color. Shironeri, the white of unbleached silk and Aisumi, the blue of indigo for are used in the open heart watches. Geppaku, the white of the full moon, is used in one of the two multi-hand creations while the sub-dials of the other are in Kuritobi, the color of the black kite. These four new timepieces will be available in June at the Seiko Boutiques and selected retail partners worldwide.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

Porsche Design has launched an all black edition of its 1919 Globetimer UTC watch.

Introduced two years ago, Porsche Design’s 1919 Globetimer UTC is a GMT watch that offers intelligent functionality, optimized legibility, and convenient, easy operation. Previously available in three different color variants, the chronometer-certified timepiece features black titanium carbide coating and a black leather strap made of Porsche interior leather.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

Derived from the simple and precise handling of the Porsche double-clutch transmission, the display of the world’s 24 time zones can be adjusted in 1-hour increments – without the loss of the current time display – by simply pressing the form-fitting push-button which is ergonomically embedded into the case.

Each push of this button causes the short, local-time, hour hand to advance clockwise one position. When flying east, each push of the “+” button advances the second time zone by an interval of one hour. When flying west, pressing the “–” button causes the UTC hands to move in the opposite direction. All the while, the UTC hands automatically move, remaining in synchrony.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

To ensure this occurs at midnight and not at noon, the time needs to be set correctly just once. A circular window on the left-hand side of the dial facilitates this task: a white dot appears here during daytime hours, while the aperture remains black at night. Porsche Design has also taken into account the reference time indicated by a second, and clearly distinguishable hour hand with a distinctive luminous tip. This hand turns once every twenty-four hours, displaying the home time.

Perfect legibility is another essential feature. To intuitively display the time from any viewing angle, the dial’s radius was designed to be as large as possible, while the titanium case was made uncommonly slim. Well-balanced styling imbues this watch with a unique lightness, further enhanced by the handsomely shaped wristband.

Color contrasts, distinctive hands, indices and numerals combine with the generous use of nonradioactive Super-LumiNova luminous material to minimize the chance of misreading, even in poor visibility conditions. In addition, a sevenfold antireflective coating and an extra hard-coated treatment protect the sapphire crystal.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

The 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black is also powered by the Porsche Design Caliber Werk 04.110. The movement is equipped with a bidirectional winding rotor. It builds up a 38-hour power reserve with its balance paced at four hertz. The front of the caliber is equipped with an innovative time-zone mechanism specially developed by Porsche Design and manufactured by the Swiss complication specialist Dubois- Dépraz.

Before starting serial production, the mechanisms underwent several long-term tests in compliance with the strict criteria of Chronofiable®. The impact test’s candidates receive a blow equivalent to nearly 5,000 times their own weight, while each push-piece must withstand at least 10,000 switching cycles.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

Before encasing, each movement must also prove its timekeeping accuracy for fifteen consecutive days at the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The caliber must not lose more than four, nor gain more than six seconds per day, throughout the fifteen- day trial. During this time, the movement undergoes testing in five different positions and at three different temperatures.

The 42-millimeter titanium case with a black titanium carbide coating perfectly pairs with the black leather strap made of high-quality Porsche car leather. The watch is water-resistant to 100 meters.

The 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black is available at a starting price of 6,250 EUR (RRP).

Greubel Forsey GMT Earth Titanium (Final Edition)

Greubel Forsey During Geneva Watch Days 2021, Greubel Forsey launched the third and final interpretation of its GMT Earth. Made of titanium, this intense black version is a limited edition of 11 pieces.

The GMT Earth by Greubel Forsey is an extraordinary wristwatch that, for the first time, makes it possible to appreciate the entirety of the world in a single glance.

This technical feat first appeared in 2011. At the time of the first “GMT”, the Earth was not yet fully revealed. Seven years later, the design of the Earth was finally complete: visible from all angles in its new sapphire alcove, it appears as though it is floating in space. On the front as well as the back, the laser-engraved Earth shows world times that are both quick and easy to read.

The first version of the GMT Earth was in white gold. The second was in platinum. Now, this timepiece is available with a new titanium case. The GMT Earth in titanium will be available in a limited edition of 11 pieces, three times less than the original version. Weighing just 117g, the weight of the strap has been reduced by two-thirds. The case has lost just over a third of its weight.

Greubel Forsey GMT Earth Titanium (Final Edition)

Titanium is used not only for the entire case, but also the bridges, the GMT push-piece, the crown and the folding buckle, the latter two being the components most exposed to shocks and scratches.

To accompany the light and matt tones of titanium, Greubel Forsey opted for a black finish on the dial. It is applied to the spotted bottom plate and to all the frosted bridges, with straight flanks, polished bevelling and countersinks. This finish is also featured on an all-black natural rubber strap, whose inner face is engraved with the cardinal values of the Greubel Forsey Atelier and which are visible on the bezel.

Greubel Forsey GMT Earth Titanium (Final Edition)

The GMT Earth displays four key pieces of information on its dial side. The first is the off-centre hours, minutes and seconds display. The first two feature large openworked hands finished with a Super-LumiNova tip, complemented by a small seconds hand on a sapphire disc at three o’clock.

On the left is the GMT indicator, whose red hand effortlessly stands out against a hand-engraved black gold disc filled with lacquer. The third, located opposite the crown, is the power reserve, designed following the same process: a black, engraved gold segment, filled with lacquer and covered by a silver-polished steel hand.

Finally between 7 o’clock and 9 o’clock, the Earth occupies the largest space, completing a full rotation in 24 hours. The engraved sapphire ring around the equator acts as a day / night indication and allows you to instantly see which hemisphere is in the daytime and which is at night.

Greubel Forsey GMT Earth Titanium (Final Edition)

Located on the side of the caseband, a final window opens to show the equator. Thanks to this, the Earth really can be seen from all angles.

Finally, on the caseback side, the worldtime display indicator completes the design. 24 time zones indicate the UTC of 24 major cities – with those that observe daylight savings on a white background.

The GMT Earth boasts Greubel Forsey’s third invention Tourbillon 24 Secondes, which uses a fast rotation speed and is set at an angle to resolve the positioning problem in relation to gravity and which is crucial for the operation of the oscillator. The 25° angle and the rapid rotation of the tourbillon cage significantly improve the chronometric performance of a system containing only one tourbillon, especially those in fixed positions.

NORQAIN ADVENTURE NEVEREST GMT

Subsequent to the successful launch of the NEVEREST collection, Swiss watch brand NORQAIN presents the first GMT timepieces in the brand’s renowned Adventure line. Three models are available now and each one is fashioned from stainless steel. They feature the brand’s signature NORQAIN dial pattern. One variation has a striking all-black appearance with DLC finishing.

NORQAIN ADVENTURE NEVEREST GMT

The new creations are all equipped with the independent brand’s Manufacture Calibre NN20/2, produced in collaboration with movement manufacturer Kenissi.

NORQAIN ADVENTURE NEVEREST GMT

The NEVEREST GMT models are adventure-ready with the ultra-robust NN20/2 Manufacture Calibre and sporty design. Two 41mm models in polished and satined stainless steel feature a black dial with the recognisable NORQAIN pattern and date window at 3 o’clock.

The sturdy crown protection enhances the watch’s robustness. The polished NORQAIN plate on the left side of the case, engraved with “NEVEREST”, can be personalised with a name, motto or date. The wearer can choose from two compelling design codes: royal blue or forest green.

NORQAIN ADVENTURE NEVEREST GMT  with blue detail

Both timepieces are available with a stainless steel bracelet (USD 3,900.00), a fabric strap (USD 3,690.00), or a black rubber NATO strap (USD 3,760.00) produced by BIWI, a Swiss industry leader known for its innovative vegan-certified products.

The GMT movement boasts a jumping hour feature to easily set the local time and change the date forward or backward at any time of the day without losing a second.

Affirming the exclusivity of the movements are the unique NORQAIN decorations visible through the transparent caseback such as the golden “double-N” NORQAIN logo, symbolising the Swiss Alps, on the oscillating weight and “Adventure – Freedom – Independence”, the brand’s core values and NORQAIN collection names, engraved on the bridge.

NORQAIN ADVENTURE NEVEREST GMT

NORQAIN also offers four-year international warranty, which can be extended to five years when the customer joins the NORQAINER Club within one month of their purchase.

10% of the earnings of NEVEREST sales will be donated to the Butterfly Help Project, created by Norbu Sherpa and Andrea Sherpa-Zimmermann of Wild Yak Expeditions.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT

Engineered for easier and faster setting, the Roadmaster Marine GMT by BALL Watch Company features quick-set GMT push buttons that revolutionize the way the GMT hand is adjusted.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT

Simply by turning and pressing either one of the patented quick-set buttons, the GMT hand can be easily set instead of using the main crown.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT watch with green bezel

The button at 8 o’clock moves the GMT hand backward, while the 10 o’clock button moves it forward. Combined with a bi-directional 24-hour bezel and main hands, the Marine GMT allows for three time zones to be tracked simultaneously.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT watch with tritium tubes

In the darkest conditions, time can be read thanks to the self-powered H₃ gas tubes used by BALL. This cutting-edge Swiss technology consists in encapsulating H₃ gas in glass micro tubes. Light energy is released when the H₃ molecules strike the internal colored surface of the tubes. This phenomenon doesn’t require recharge from any external light or energy source. The 28 tubes are carefully mounted onto the dial at each hour marker as well as the main hour hand, minute hand and GMT hand.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT watch with Pepsi bezel

The markers at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock are shaped as Arabic numerals forming one of the most iconic BALL dial designs. In combination with the ceramic bezel’s Super LumiNova coating, the three time zones can easily be read in total darkness.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT with blue and black bezel

The Marine GMT features the chronometer certified automatic caliber BALL RR1203-C with day-date functions. It is water resistant to 200m/660ft, anti-magnetic to 4,800A/m and shock resistant to 5,000Gs.

BALL Watch Roadmaster Marine GMT watch with green and black bezel

Its case is made of titanium while its bracelet combines stainless steel and titanium parts. The movement can be admired thanks to a see-trough case back and the crown screws in for better resistance.

This 40mm Roadmaster Marine GMT watch model is available in several harmonious color variations. It comes on a bracelet but can also fit a rubber or NATO strap.

Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT

Bell & Ross presents BR 03-93 GMT, a new addition to its traveller’s timepieces.

In 2007, Bell & Ross launched its 1st GMT Instrument, the BR 03‑51 GMT TITANIUM. Two complications at the service of the long-haul traveler: a second time zone and a large date for optimum readability. The use of high-tech materials like brushed titanium for the case and carbon fiber for the dial optimizes the watch performances. A carbon version was released later in 2013.

This complication has subsequently been chosen to equip the Vintage series. Following on from the BR V2-93 GMT 24H launched in 2018, Bell & Ross has completed its range of watches targeted at modern frequent travelers – both professionals and civilians – in search of a chic and functional timepiece.

The Bell and Ross BR V2-93 GMT Blue – launched in 2020 and picked by Air France pilots – adorns a galvanic blue sunray dial as a nod to the world of air travel and long transatlantic trips, while the second-hand counterweight is subtly styled in the shape of an aircraft.

True to its iconic square flagship model, the new BR 03-93 GMT replaces the existing version. Redesigned, more modern, more functional, more readable. This “tool watch” goes back to basics in terms of design and shape which were influenced by two keywords: functionality and legibility.

Its black sunray dial contrasts with its large white photo-luminescent numerals and indexes. This color scheme is ingrained in Bell & Ross’ DNA. It echoes the colors used for on-board flight instruments. Cockpits are in fact dominated by black, which prevents reflections, and white, which guarantees optimal reading.

This new updated version differs in many ways from its predecessor. The new BR 03-93 GMT timepiece provides the time in three different locations around the world.

The GMT hand now stands out with its large red triangle which is perfectly visible both day and night. Spinning around the dial in 24 hours, this fourth hand displays a second time zone (or the local time on a 24-hour scale). For the first time, the iconic square shape is completed with a bi-directional bezel.
