    Monta Atlas - 38mm GMT

    Looks very nice, but quite expensive.

    Yea I like the looks and size of many Monta watches but honestly I think they are crazy priced for a micro.
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    The day they solve that bent GMT hand by using a traveler's GMT movement will be the day I take interest. That would make this a nice, low-profile travel watch.

    Until then, it's just a mishmash of previous models and lesser than either one it takes cues from. At least the Skyquest could track three time zones at a glance.

    Love the size, not the price. Not that it is completely unreasonable, just out if my price range.

    How does a "traveler" GMT address the bent hand? What "traveler" GMT movements are available to small brands that need to source movements from an outside supplier?

    Alpina has a traveler GMT module added to the 2893.

    Alpina did a conversion to make the jumping hand a 12 hour hand and the non-jumping a 24 he hand. But, IIRC, their modified movement's date complication is still tied to the non-jumping hour hand. So if you travel someplace west of home, your date could be changing over well before midnight (local). That is, IMO, a far greater annoyance than having to adjust the GMT hand every time I adjust the local to keep the GMT on the same time zone.

    Additionally, is this feature available to any watch manufacturer and would it "fix" the bent hand?

    My only real criticism is that it's very similar to their current offerings.

    That said, it's still ten times better than anything Tudor have released this year.

    Especially after switching from the Eterna caliber 39 to a Sellita movement.
