For the Frequent Traveler

A 9 A.M. board meeting back home and bourbon and cigars in London—no problem. Be in two places at one—if only in your dreams—with the GMT Traveler. At least you will know what time it is in London. 

The GMT Traveler, conceived to meet the needs of long-distance travelers: Ours is a globalized world of air travel and worldwide communications networks. It is a perpetual dilemma for the jet-setting watch enthusiast to choose just which watch to bring along on that all-important trip. In this world, it’s an advantage to wear a watch that tells you what the time is when you are away and the time at home.

If you've been checking this page periodically youve known that we have been out of stock of the GMT TRAVELER for some time now.  We were out for two reasons.  1.  It was a widely popular model and 2.  UPDATE:  Due to a miscommunication between with our movement supplier the new GMT Travelers will be directly outfitted with SOPROD C125 GMT movements. http://soprod.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/C125-GMT-Date-F.pdfIs it going to increase the price of the Traveler? Not for the customers who secured their slot, but in the future the price will have to be increased due to the movement which is on par or exceeds an ETA 2893-2 (These are not clones either).   We are still committed to bringing you a high quality timepiece at an affordable price. Everything is still the same on the dial except for the wording on the dial which will now say GMT TRAVELER (see the pic directly below) and the bracelet will now be the same as the one on the Aquamariner (brushed with screws and divers slide lock extension).  We are also offering two new ceramic inserts, red/blue or red/black bi-colored bezel inserts.  We have only 60 RESERVE slots.  Because we will sell out fast it is best that you RESERVE your GMT now. Please order only from this page.

In a Class of its Own


Rather than doing the time zone shuffle with your watch when you travel, we’ve designed a Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) watch that has a rotatable 24-hour graduated bezel and 24-hour hand that allows those who travel the world to read three different time zones. Two simultaneously. The TRAVELER completely transcends its price category by offering features found only on other luxury watches. The TRAVELER is impeccably well built, solid and is suitable for almost any setting.

In addition to conventional hour, minute and seconds hands, the 24 hour hand (blue hand with red arrow) or “GMT” hand, can be easily set from the 12 hour hand by “jumping” from hour to hour, and the rotating ceramic bezel, used in conjunction with the 24 hour hand, gives the ability to display multiple time zones at the same time. The distinctively colored 24-hour hand displays the “home” or “local” reference time in a first time zone that can be read on the graduations on the bezel.


24 Click Bi-Directional Bezel

Like other luxury brands, the Traveler uses a 24 click bi-directional graduated ceramic bezel, with a notched ring and spring that provides constant torque resulting in a fluid and reliable rotation of the bezel in both directions and one click for each hour. The rotation system that allows the bezel to be turned in either direction and locate with a positive click in each of the 24 hour positions, without any possibility of an intermediate stop or accidental changes. The powerful spring mechanism allows crisp, precise movements, and works reliably over time. Apart from securely indicating home or reference time, the bezel can also be rotated to read a third time zone using the 24-hour hand.

Lumed Ceramic Bezel

Unlike many other luxury brands, the GMT bezel is also luminous which provides legibility no matter what the conditions when you’re traveling.

The GMT Traveler offers an unprecedented combination of complexity and simplicity for a fraction of the cost that other brands are charging.
