Tudor Black Bay GMT Pepsi
The Tudor Black Bay is a classic dive watch with a 39 mm case diameter. The reason we like this Black Bay is the no-nonsense design. The Pepsi bezel with the red GMT hand is stylish and makes reading another timezone easy and effortless. The black dial with the silver snowflake hands make this watch a beautiful classic in our eyes.
Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 GMT
Travel the world with the TAG Heuer Aquaracer, which is the ideal companion for any adventure due to its sturdy, yet elegant design and Calibre 7 GMT. Whatever the time zone, this technical tool watch has a modern, athletic appearance that makes it an eye catching piece. The comparatively smaller case size (43 mm) ensures a very comfortable wear, yet due to its clean design the dial remains perfectly readable at a glance. The yellow GMT hand against the blue dial gives an exciting and dynamic feel – a great choice!
Raymond Weil Freelancer GMT Worldtimer Green
The Raymond Weil Freelancer GMT Worldtimer is a 40.5mm wide beauty. The watch has a rotating track on the dial that is inscribed with one large city for each time zone. The city disc is placed next to a 24-hour clock that displays the time in the location represented and whether it is day or night. The “local time” is shown by the barrel-shaped hour and minute hands.
A very unique design with an eye-catching color combination for the bezel and the dial. A fantastic choice!

Frederique Constant Worldtimer
Elegant men’s watches like the Frederique Constant Worldtimer are ideal for any (even formal) setting. The watch’s incredibly precise automatic movement has a 42 hours power reserve. A very classy choice from a reliable (and often overlooked) watch brand.
Breitling Avenger Automatic GMT
The Breitling Avenger Automatic GMT 43 is a bold, incredibly sturdy, and shockproof watch. The seriousness of this timepiece is amplified with the red GMT hand against the black dial. The Breitling Avenger, as expected, provides unmatched safety and dependability to any aviator explorer and can easily be operated while wearing gloves. The Avenger Automatic GMT 43 is equipped with Breitling’s own reliable Breitling 32 caliber automatic movement.
Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT
Bell & Ross designs are unique and eye-catching. The reason is because their expertise lies partly in the realm of aeronautical instruments, and that is very clearly where the design inspiration comes from.
The new BR 03-93 GMT watch provides the time for three separate time zones around the globe. With a bright red triangle that is clearly visible both day and night, the GMT hand spins around the dial every 24 hours, showing a second time zone (or the local time on a 24-hour scale). The bi-directional bezel completes the characteristic square design. This new functional bezel was specially adapted to fit the BR 03 case. It successfully enables the reading of the second time zone, as well as the third by rotating it clockwise (subtracts hours) and anti-clockwise (adds hours).
Bell & Ross has opted for Black & Red-hot colors for the anodized aluminum bezel, giving the watch a dynamic, sporty look. For even easier readability and visual contrast, the red section indicates daytime while the black indicates nighttime.
