Many of our customers need to track time in two separate time zones easily, without the need for additional hands or complications. Traditionally, a dedicated GMT watch was the solution, but there's now a simpler alternative. Most dive watches feature a "count-up" bezel for diving applications. However, demand has increased for a 12-hour bezel instead. Modern divers often use a dive computer, making the traditional bezel function less critical. This change enhances the watch's flexibility while maintaining the 300m/1000ft water resistance and classic diver watch appearance.

The 12-hour bezel design is incredibly simple to use. Unlike dedicated GMT watches, which have an additional hand, you offset the bezel by the required number of hours. For example, if you are in Paris and want to know the time in Miami (6 hours behind), turn the bezel until 9 o'clock aligns with the 3-hour marker. This adjustment allows you to track time across different zones effortlessly.

Luminova and Historical Accuracy:

The watch uses Luminova instead of Tritium, common in the 1960s. For historical accuracy, it features an encircled "T" on the dial, mimicking the look of aged Tritium paint. Luminova does not deteriorate with age and is non-radioactive, offering a safer and longer-lasting luminescence.

Benefits of Sapphire Crystal:

Many customers ask about the benefits of sapphire crystal over standard mineral crystal. Synthetic sapphire is extremely strong, shatter-resistant, and scratch-resistant, making it ideal for those with active lifestyles, including military and security personnel, police officers, and outdoor enthusiasts. These groups account for over 70% of our customer base.

Our observations reveal that over 90% of cracked watch crystals involve mineral glass. Even hardened mineral crystals do not match the durability of sapphire. Sapphire crystals are strengthened through heat treatment to remove internal stresses and are then coated with two layers of anti-reflective coating. Although sapphire crystals are more expensive, they offer superior longevity, resilience, and performance, justifying their use in higher-end watches.


This watch meets modern needs for tracking multiple time zones while maintaining its historical and functional integrity. Its robust features and user-friendly design make it an exceptional choice for both professionals and enthusiasts.
