    World Time Watches for my brother.

    What are some good world time watches?

    I will be meeting up with my brother in a few months and I wanted to get him a world time watch for his 30th. He's keeps saying he wants to start traveling again.. preferably something under 1,000. He's just a layman who wants something simple and clean with a OK brand atleast. So far...​ I was gonna get him what I use as my daily watch but in a different color . Any other suggestions? I don't think he would mind a quartz (if anything, he might prefer it) but he doesn't seem like a Seiko or Citizen kind of guy.

    If you travel, independent 12h hand is a must. If Semaster GMT, Rolex Explorer II and GMT II is out of your budget, you can always check Seiko kinetic GMT's, they can be had quite cheap.

    In the minds of forum-dwellers is the only place where that would be true.

    In the real world, a person could easily - and quickly - get used to the GMT hand showing local time, so there's no real need for independent hour hand.

    The Hamilton is a fine choice. An independently adjustable 12 hour hand would make changing time a little easier. Unfortunately Seiko was the last company to make a watch priced < $1k with that feature that I know of. Their 8F56 quartz movement has been out of production for several years.

    that's kind of what it seems like. I just wanted to make sure I wasnt overlooking another watch. thank you for the help.

    Which do you prefer? black, white, or silver?
