    Watch with 2nd time zone

    Hi,

    I am looking for a watch with a 2nd time zone.
    up to 42mm size (not too bulky)
    sapphire
    mechanical (auto/manual i dont care)
    at least 100m WR (ideal with screw down crown)
    good lume
    around 1000 GBP (up to 1200 if i really like it)

    til now i am looking at the Ball Engineer Master GMT2 and Glycine Airman 18 or the new Base 22

    Thanks for the tips :)

    How about a Sinn 857? Tegimented steel, anti-magnetic, 200m WR, 43mm diameter, and it looks good on the bracelet, Sinn rubber, or leather.

    How useful is a second time zone really? When I'm working with with our office in Tokyo or London, it's pretty automatic in my head what it is there nearly instantly.

    It always seemed like a not that useful complication to me and I'm terrible at head math but come on, adding or subtracting a few hours in your head should be near instant.

    I could see a second time zone being really useful when traveling a lot. Imagine if you were in a different time zone every few days - I know I'd have a hard time keeping track of what time it was back home without a dual time zone watch.

    Actually, if I ever get back to flying (or before, figure it'll be cheaper to buy the watch that it will be to buy the plane ) I'd want a GMT watch that handles three time zones. The normal 12 hour hand keeps track of home time, the 24 hour/GMT had keeps track of zulu time and the bezel keeps track of the current time zone I'm in.

    But yeah, if I'm just keeping track of one other time zone without moving around, I don't need such a watch - probably why I don't have one yet...

    If I'm traveling, it's not the difficulty in knowing the time where I am-but the ease of setting the time with a GMT watch.
    As for candidates; you might look at a good, used Omega 300 SMP GMT. That and a GMT ll are my favorites.

    GMTIIc is my favorite, too.

    But in the budget mentioned above, how about considering a Hamilton GMT watch? It's an excellent watch for the money, and you'd have a chunk left over to celebrate!
