    Sure......Haven't left America in 29 years but I got two GMT watches. The second zone just runs around.....The watch will still work.....
    It's like having a dive watch and never diving...Got those too.

    I have three. I have the second time zone set to the same time. Just use it as a "24 hour" hand. I just enjoy complications, even though I rarely use them.... OOO wait no. I used the timer on my Skyhawk today to make a frozen pizza. ;)

    Actually I like a GMT hand set to the same time zone I'm in. That way, when I'm setting it I know if it is AM or PM.

    PM on the left...AM on the right

    You don't need to travel to still have this be a useful complication. If you need to call someone overseas or your team is global, or just knowing if your watch is in AM or PM are all good reasons I think. I also like the look of a GMT hand. A second hour and minute hand? Not so much.

    Set it to a place you really want to visit...

    Other than timing steaks I don't use my chronograph either but I like having it. If you like the watch go for it.

    I don't travel, but I have a GMT (Montblanc GMT Star Chrono). I use the second hour hand for knowing AM or PM, but on the rare occasion I do travel out of my time zone, the GMT hand does come in quite handy.

    It's really just a novelty to me, just like my Engineer II Ohio Moonphase. It's set to the current time. I don't think I've even left the time zone since I got it.

    I have several. Sometimes the GMT hand is set for a place I will visit. Sometimes it is set where one of my children live and sometimes it is just set for my home time.

    The only 2nd timezone watches I own are my Ironmans, but I have them set to Rome time, it's where we went on our honeymoon and sometimes it's nice to check the time there and remember how much fun we had
