    Isn't this question academic since it's out of stock?

    To be helpful, when it is in stock 2 to 3 days. Amazingly quick. All the best

    THAT watch is out of stock, but luckily gnomon does sell OTHER watches as well. I remember seeing on the forum that the email on his website isn't his direct email? Could someone post it or pm me it? Thanks

    Does the date wheel change over on the standard hands or the GMT hand? The reason I'm asking is because this watch isn't really a true GMT as when you travel into your new time zone, you cannot change the hour hand in 1hr increments, but rather you have to change the GMT hand. Seems backwards that way since your GMT hand is now representing "local time".

    I really want a GMT in one of my next watches. I really like the look of this watch, but that might be a deal breaker for me, not sure yet.

    It all depends on your usage. It works for me.

    It changes over with the hour hand. It has a 2893-2 movement, so it is a true GMT movement with quickset GMT, but it does not have a jump hour set function like on Rolex's later GMT models.

    So what's the purpose of the quickset GMT? I guess you just ignore the date when you're traveling as it will be set to "home time"?

    I guess a solution to this is to just set your GMT hand to "GMT" and then move the bezel to the appropriate timezone when traveling?

    Also, is the bezel bidirectional or unidirectional?

I know for example Borealis is just a small brand looking to make affordable watches, Squale, their marketing irks me, rubs me the wrong way, feels like fake heritage, like it is an Invicta or Fossil but trying to hide it. And using standard Sellita/ETA movements doesn't help at all, seems if you got history, part of that should be in-house movement, which is very sad about Oris... Watch history should be about the movement and contributing to that history, not damn cases.

    Also when are they going to update that press fit clasp?

    The sizing is pretty good, it looks like a 40mm diver on steroids, since the dial is small and the bezel is quite large. I felt that the watch overall was great for the money and very unique in person, but it's extremely difficult to get an accurate picture to show the color of the fake patina on the dial, or the ceramic bezel. Regarding my complaints, the crown is a bit too large for the crown guards, the bezel teeth aren't deep enough and the clasp is rather cheap, but if you like the way the watch looks, buy it! It's quite a stunner in person.
    The larger crown is part of the look that I like personally..
