MWC GMT DUAL TIMEZONE MILITARY WATCH IN BLACK PVD STEEL
There is nothing like a GMT watch when travelling in different time zones.
This GMT dual time zone watch in stainless steel finish is one of MWC's latest watches and has a high performance quartz Ronda 515.24 movement housed in a robust 300m water resistant casing.
The concept behind GMT watches is quite simple. On a conventional watch, the hour hand is designed to travel around the dial over a 12 hour period, all that is needed to create a GMT watch is to add a second hour hand which travels around the dial in 24 hours instead of the usual 12 and then to add an additional 24-hour time scale to a bezel hence the reason most GMT watches at quick glance look like divers watches. How you use the watch could not be easier because the 24-hour hand circles the dial once a day instead of twice with a normal hour hand, its tip indicates the corresponding hour and because it’s operating on the 24 hour timescale there can be no confusion between a.m. and p.m.
MWC initially produced these watches for airline and naval pilots because the watch enables them to see the time in two different time zones. Because this watch uses a quartz movement it is ideal for people who require a hassle free low maintenance watch and who tend to travel frequently or work in two different timezones.
The watch measures 46mm including the crown and 43mm excluding the crown and uses the a 20mm NATO strap.
