    It’s a limited edition version (”Cadence”) of the L.U.C Pro One GMT model.
    Inhouse microrotor calibre, 300M WR, 65 hours PR, integrated (not glued) cyclops.
    Great watch IMO, only shortcoming is the slaved GMT hand so not what is often referred to as a ”travellers GMT”, 2nd TZ set by bezel rotation only.

    Good thread for me, as I have a GMT itch that needs scratching, but can't decide what I want.

    Meanwhile, I think this just about qualifies for inclusion here as an 'office' GMT

    Thanks for the info. It's going on my want list. Just read an interesting article on watchfinder of all places about it. It's right up my street.

    Thank you, I had not seen that article before.

    For anyone else interested there is a video review (well, more of a reflection perhaps) of the watch, beginning at approx 5.30 minutes in: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=...&v=RgTCuCH58iY
    Though I suspect the bezel is sapphire rather than ceramic, at least the top part, since there is no transparent ceramic AFAIK.

    A red SUS GMT was on my radar for a mo, but with how scarce they'd become I soon realised there wasn't much point in chasing.

    Here's mine:



    And this one, no hand but works fine as a GMT, too:

    Simon, it is a Temption Olympic. "OLYMPIC (CMO2). GMT watch (second time zone). Automatic. Stainless steel case with "satinized" finish. Black dial. Luminous. Screw down crown with integrated onyx. Water resistant to 100m. Sapphire crystal with anti relection coating (internal surface only). Sapphire back. Massive (20mm.) stainless steel bracelet secured by screws (leather strap optional). D= 38mm. H= 9.8mm. Movement: T16.1 based on ETA 2893-2. Superb time/date watch with the bonus of a second time zone."Sadly discontinued.
    I bought it from Pilotswatches.co.uk and was the first watch in my collection. It was chosen as an alternative to the IWC pilots watch.
    It has aged beautifully with creamy markers but bright white hands, making it easy to read the time. The makers logo can only be seen at certain angles. The
    bracelet is very comfortable, but has proved impossible to remove, so I have been unable to try it on the black supplied strap.

    So what's the behaviour of the central blue hand that looks like a regular GMT hand? Can you set the two separately?

    The blue hand tucks neatly behind the hour hand during normal use, i.e when in home nation, as seen here:



    When travelling, the ‘main’ hour hand can be set independently to local time without stopping the movement; it sets in a ‘jump-hour’ fashion, and this is also the mechanism via which the date is set.

    The blue hand is in effect the GMT hand, it stays put, thus displaying the time back home.

    Can honestly say I would happily wear any of the GMTs in this thread, some great shots of some great watches, keep them coming.
    Here's my last new to me, arrival.

    i guess this could technically be added to the list as a stealth gmt.

    You certainly have a way of distorting the images, that Tudor is about the best shot I have seen of one of those, you make the Red look really bright, but unfortunately you make the BLNR look like a Parnis

    Cheat - that's a world timer not GMT. Still I can live with that.

    I've had 5, split neatly between
    2 "office type" chronographs, both made by Fortis, which used modified Valjoux 7750 movements;
    A "poor-man's GMT" - a Stefan Johansson chronograph with an ETA 251.262 quartz movement, a qyickset hour hand for travel, and a 12-hour bezel;
    Two "traveller's GMTs" - s Seiko and a Rolex 16710.

    The Rolex is of course, the oldest design, and the most enduring model, but there's a good reason for that and it's lasted longer in my hands, too. Funnily enough, the Rolex is probably the least conspicuous, lowest profile of them all, especially with the black bezel.

    Some real stunners on this thread and very useful reference as I do love the GMT complication.

    Here's a very boring one of mine with stick dial... set to Singapore/UK

    Probably not considered a true GMT but this 12hr bezel is surprisingly versatile. Keeps dial uncluttered, and simple to change timezone! Think this is only the second pic on this thread of 12hr bezels..
