    Dual time / Independent GMT hand watch?

    Are there any watches that have the ability to keep dual time? In other words, if Zone One is 3:30pm, Zone Two could be 1:13, 1:25, 1:47 (basically not limited to XX:30 like traditional GMTs).

    Looking for something below $15k, preferably relatively high(er) end.

    Thanks

    Don't know why you'd need a watch with that feature but I think a watch that does that probably needs to have 2 movements..

    The are a few time zones that don't synchronize with the world time zone system on the hour, but they are usually synched in on the half hour (India) or the 15 minute (Nepal, Iran). Nevertheless, I agree with H2KA. You need a dual-time watch. I am not sure what "high-end" means. Is that purely related to quality or does it imply some type of style? Ball sells a neat, in my opinion, dual time piece (Aviator dual time) but it is not at all dressy.Good luck, I really like dual time watches. I really like the Arnold and Son watches like the DBG equation of time. Unfortunately, I think it is over your (and my) budget.

    That piguet reminded me of Michel Jordi, who makes twin watches, and makes them beautifully.

    Well. There is a digital Casio for $19.00 that displays two timezones independently. And Skagen, Hamilton and Tissot have analog dual timezone watches that use two separate quartz movements.

    At a tiny 66mm, you can set up to four time zones to what ever time you want them!

    The Raymond Weil Don Giovanni Dual time has two independent movements and will perform the task, though I am not certain if it meets your luxury standards.
