    Need recommendations for white dial, dressy GMT or dual time watch

    I'm doing a fair amount of travel for work now, on average 1 trip per month. Most of the time, I'm in executive-level meetings but they're usually of the "retreat" or "summit" type (not a lot of boardroom time on these trips). I'm starting to look for a travel watch, something that ticks these boxen:

    White dial
    Stainless case
    Automatic movement
    Preferably, the fourth hand won't be obnoxious (like it is on the Explorer II for instance)
    I'll probably put it on a brown leather strap, but bracelet is good too
    40-42mm diameter

    As this won't see a ton of wrist time, I'd like to keep the price under $1000. $750 would be about ideal. What do you recommend?

    Must it be a fourth hand? How about an inner rotating bezel?

    Tag Carrera 8 GMT. Might be a little above your listed range used, but it's a beautiful piece

    ^ I've looked at that one for a long time, I like a lot of things about it but the dial is much too busy. I've also looked at the Orient Polaris GMT, which is on the short list.

    Personally I prefer a 12 hour scale for the second time zone (far easier to read), and this kind of functionality can be achieved without the need of a fourth hand simply by using a bezel for the second time zone.

    Magrette makes a very nice example of this type of travel watch, called the Dual-Time. At $575, it offers great bang for the buck.

    ^ I do like that, and it's at a good price. How does one use the inner bezel? Just rotate it to read the local hour?

    Not a lot of white dialed GMT's out there. The TAG Cartera twin time, the TAG Link GMT and the Fortis B42 triple time zone come to mind.

    Hamilton Traveler GMT 2 ref H32625555. 42mm, discrete GMT hand, added coolness being a super compressor design and comes in at 772.76 at Joma. Had the black on bracelet, nice watch.
