These look really cool but I don't know anything about them. The 24 hour reading gives you a GMT functionality? Is the 24 hour hand independently adjustable? Presumably the internal 24 hour bezel rotates, but to what end? What are we looking at here?!?!?!

The Purist can show two timezones at once. The crown at 4 o'clock unlocks the bezel; it can freely move in either direction.

There's also the Airman which can show three timezones. https://www.gnomonwatches.com/products/ ... ref-gl0245

Cheers mate. I always liked the SST 'pumpkin'. But these with the steel 24 hour bezel also look really cool.

Good day sir!!..well, because these are 'Purists' models, the hour hand rotates across the dial once every 24 hours. There is no internal bezel. As BBattle states, the outer bezel is adjustable, allowing one to keep track of time in a 2nd time zone. Highly recommended..
