    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?

    Re: Who is in? The new Squale 30 ATMOS Tropic Gmt Ceramic

    So I'm going to address the elephant in the room. I don't buy their heritage. It was probably some venture capitalist who bought the name after they went bankrupt who has no connection whatsoever with the former company. Now there is a certain youtuber who waxes poetically about the watches. That's suspect in itself but he's also said in his videos that he met with the owner of Squale. Why would the owner of a prestigious watch company want to meet with a youtuber with only 70,000 subscribers? Everything screams micro brand to me. I've heard of horror stories when it comes to getting Squale to service their watches. I mean, at the 600-1000 USD street price range their in, are they really worth it?

    What horror stories? If you can't find a decent watchmaker to service an ETA movement then I would be very surprised! It's not an in house movement...

    Someone just posted the link to a Hodinkee article on Squale. Go read it. Bottom line is this: the distributor for the Italian market, who knew and was friendly with the original owners, the Von Buren family, bought the company. There's no conspiracy theory here for you.

    Eh, that's boring :)

    I'm thinking that setting the quickset GMT hand to GMT time and then moving the bezel appropriately while traveling seems to be the best solution to my problem here.

    Either way, I'm really digging this watch now.

    Ya was kidding around man..I have the black Atmos 30 GMT over a year now and it's not going anywhere..The build quality is comparable to my seamaster especially considering the price difference! Scratches my Rolex itch to boot..

    That's good to hear. I wasn't looking for one. The Hodinkee article really eased my fears. Squale really makes great bang per buck watches.
