“Opinions are like wrist watches..everyone’s watch shows a different time from others,but everyone believes that their time is correct.”- deadroses

GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time, which is actually an antiquated idea that uses pre-1955 technology to determine time zones. The name was applied to timepieces that bore a 24-hour clock and a secondary hour hand, allowing travelers to keep track of time in two separate places. In spite of the acronym no longer having any bearing, GMT watches still carry the moniker honorably, and are more brilliant today than they were when they first began.

Watches are the only jewelry men can wear. so when you wear a wrist watch wear it with pride. It should be a style statement.

presenting world class GMT wrist watches around the world.

Named after inventor Samuel Pierpont Langley, this was the first watch civilians could purchase that had real quartz movement. It’s made of sturdy stainless, complete with impact resistance mechanisms inside that allow it to absorb a lot of punishment without missing a minute.

Most commonly associated with James Bond, the Diver 300M is a serious diving watch that just happens to carry GMT elements to it. The mixture creates a dynamic operation that is hidden behind steel and sapphire. Also comes in petite 28mm women’s models which bears quartz movement.

46mm of self-winding silver masculine glory, the Navitimer will let you plot a course, create algorithms, and solve a few equations. It might also tell time, but we haven’t gotten that far yet.

 

 

Grand Seiko Hi-Beat 36000 GMT  (Priced at: $7,626)

It’s easy to get transfixed staring through the sapphire crystal on the back at the oscillating titanium weight in the back of this watch. Hypnotically beautiful, it has a 10 beat caliber 9S85 that barely loses time through its automatic movement, and can quickly be hand-wound so it won’t drop a second, even after days of layovers in the airport terminal.

 

 

Baume & Mercier Capeland 10106  (Priced at: $7,900)
Baume-and-Mercier-

Self-winding Swiss automatic movement on a striking blue leather strap, you’ll likely spend the first week just marveling at it every chance you get. Below the looks, front and rear sapphire crystals with a satin finish make it tough to damage, even after a few hundred reckless TSA searches.

 

 

Rolex GMT-Master II  (Priced at: $7,995)

A similar model to the watch that started it all, the Master II uses 904L stainless steel for the body with Swiss 3186 movement. Cerachrom on the exterior shifts with the lighting, appearing blue then black as you move it through different lighting arrangements. Just as good in the office as heading into the wild blue.

 

 

Breitling Navitimer GMT   (Priced at: $9,055)
Breitling-Navitimer-GMT

Using an immense 48mm face, the Navitimer shoehorns in a buffet of information. It has a bi-directional slide rule like a pilot’s watch, a fistful of chronos like a racer, and the extra time-zone tracking that gives it its name. Supremely comfortable for extended red eye flights around the globe, it’s in for the long haul.

 

 

Chopard L.U.C. Regulator  (Priced at: $33,530)

Styled after the clocks used by watchmakers to set their creations, the Regulator takes a little time to learn, since it splits up measurements all around the dial. Once mastered, it can be used as a basic stopwatch or minute-minder without needing any adjustment.

 

 

Breguet Hora Mundi 5717 (Priced at: $55,595)

1337178

GMT watches are often focused on simplicity rather than grace, but the Hora Mundi seeks to break from that tradition. The striking global background is reminiscent of professorial globes and the roman numerals call to mind ancient texts (or Super Bowls). Done in platinum, it’s the juxtaposition between modern and archaic.

 

 

Greubel Forsey GMT (Priced at: $565,000 – $630,000)
Greubel-Forsey-GMT-Black-watch-2

More than just a gimmick, the GMT carries two barrels with a 72-hour power reserve and works at 21,600 vibrations each hour. The body is 950 platinum backed by an alligator band, but all you need to know is it is amazing and worth the money to collectors seeking bragging rights..
