    GMT watch recommendation with a non-independently set GMT hand

    Dear All

    I am trying to find a watch that has a GMT hand that is not independently set. Rather, the GMT time is set by a bezel, either internal or external.
    The other requirement that I have is that the movement be able to hack.

    Is there anything out there like this? Either modern or vintage?
    I know of Seikos with a 6117 movement.

    Thanks

    Christos

    Orient has this, but I doubt that it hacks.

    Does it have to be automatic? Miyota/Citizen/Bulova has a chronograph used in a lot of watches that has a subdial with a linked 24hr hand.

    Previous-generation Omega Seamaster GMT. Out of production, but pristine examples crop up on the 'Bay for about $1700. Bi-directional bezel with 24 hour indicators. Here's mine:

    Look at the various versions of the Seiko Perpetual Calendar watches using the 8F56 movement. Those watches typically have a model designation that begins with SLT... Many of those had rotatable bezels and the 24 hour hand was indeed not adjustable. The 12 hour hand was adjustable.

    Yup. I was going to recommend this one, but the hacking part killed that idea. I believe most of Orient GMTs are non-hacking.
