    How to set +5:45 GMT on a Nighthawk

    So, i'll most probable be traveling to nepal in 3 days and I really want to take the Nighthawk with me and I was wondering how to set the time . I've tried google but wasn't successful at finding anything.

    Is this even possible? or is this where the GMT fails and a dual time is better?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Analog GMT watches can't deal with timezone offsets, it seems. Just go dual time, saves you the trouble.

    I would just set the regular hour and minute hands to Nepal time and the GMT hand to your home time zone, assuming that it isn't also in an oddball offset time zone.

    Not sure if I'm missing something here, but Nepal is in an oddball offset so wouldn't that simply reverse the problem and throw out the home time instead?

    Dual time...
    Or do what I do when I go to Adelaide and wear 2 watches.

    Too many watches, too little time...

    I'm not sure it matters because both the hour and GMT/dual time will advance according to the minute hand. One would have to make that 0:15 or 0:30 adjustment if both time zones are not in phase by a full hour.
