Hamilton Khaki Aviation X-WIND GMT Chrono Quartz
The Khaki Aviation X-Wind Automatic Chronograph, designed with pilots in mind and intended for a life of adventure, soars through the crosswinds in a striking new form, with camouflage patterns and new color options spreading throughout the dial, strap, and case. This high-performance item offers combat-chic aesthetics and forceful style, with an inner rotating bezel and an anti-magnetic Silicon hairspring.
Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT
With the Conquest V.H.P. (Very High Precision) watch, Longines marks a return to the sophisticated watchmaking technique that the company initially pioneered. Invented in the 1950s, quartz timekeeping became commercially available in 1969 with quartz wristwatches. Current innovation includes a line that combines high accuracy with a movement created especially for the company, providing the wearer cutting-edge technology and a sporty appearance.
Mido Ocean Star GMT Automatic
This version of the Ocean Star diving watch series from MIDO now has the incredibly useful GMT feature. The time in two separate time zones—home time and your current local time—is displayed in a simple and elegant way. The time-zone indicators have been engraved on the back of the case. The Mido Ocean Star GMT is powered by the Caliber 80 automatic movement and has an 80-hour power reserve. A very sporty look with a relatively larger case width (44 mm) makes it an excellent statement piece!
Raymond Weil Tango 300 Quartz GMT
Raymond Weil’s Tango 300 Quartz is a serious dive watch where functionality meets beautiful and lasting design. A double-push safety folding clasp is used to attach the band of this Tango 300 GMT diving watch, which also has a 42mm stainless steel case, a black and grey anodized aluminum bidirectional rotating bezel, and scratch-resistant sapphire windshield. The black dial has bright silver hands and indexes, as well as a date window at 3 o’clock. Due to its amazing 300 meters (1000 feet) of water resistance, the stainless steel Tango 300 GMT, which has a Swiss quartz movement, is the ideal timepiece for exploring the ocean’s depths. The bi-directional bezel continues the diving watch legacy by fusing style and utility.
Certina DS Action GMT
The incredibly durable DS Action GMT Automatic is the ideal travel companion since it is renowned for accuracy and exceptional toughness. The GMT hand doesn’t take the attention away from the overall design, yet remains highly visible, so it’s easy to track time in a second time zone. The 80-hour power reserve is as impressive as the black and dark green combination, which makes the Certina DS Action GMT a very unique watch.
Zeno Magellano GMT
We all love watches with great stories. The Zeno Magellano GMT is a tribute Ferdinand Magellan, the Portuguese explorer who lead the expedition in the early 1500’s to go around the globe. The design of the Zeno Magellano GMT is the original design from the 1970’s, and it comes with the reliable ETA 2893 automatic movement. Vintage design made for the modern explorer; we love it!
