TOP 5 Vintage GMT Watches

Post by koimaster » November 2nd 2020, 10:05pm

Most watch complications are related to our actual whereabouts. Take the chronograph, power reserve, and alarm or minute repeaters as examples. I always found it fascinating that the GMT presented a complication that referred to the events or reality related to you, just happening in any far corner of the world. Today we look at my favorite vintage GMT watches.

I like simple solutions. That’s why I prefer Rolex ref. 1675 from 1959 to the ref. 16750 introduced in 1983. Pointing to its primary feature, which was an extra GMT hand, the later GMT Master II ref.16710 allowed it to be set independently. That resulted in the possibility to read not two, but three time zones.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
