    Question GMT Owners......

    What timezones do you track on your GMT's, and with which hands/dial? (Main dial or movable chapter ring).

    Just curious as when I set mine to wear a couple days ago, I switched up a bit. When I was overseas, it was an easy choice. Local time for the main hands, GMT for the GMT hand (main dial) and home time for the chapter ring (the blackened part helps remind one whether thay are AM or PM, after all, there was an 8 hour time difference there).

    Used to be at home it'd be local time on main hands, GMT on main dial, and either Pacific time (for eBay, and calls to businesses etc. on the West Coast) or local in 24 hour format for the chapter ring.

    My latest I am trying is local for main hands, GMT (as a pilot and world radio buff, it makes sense to me to have at least one always on GMT/UTC/Zulu time) on the movable chapter ring, with the 24/main dial set as local in 24 hour format. Finding this sort of counterintuitive (maybe I/'m just used to it being reversed) but maybe a bit easier to read the outer scale (every hour numbered instead of every other) without my reading glasses.

    So, I just wondered what the rest of you did .
    Regards, T Bone.

    Re: GMT Owners......

    Greetings,

    Main hands: Local time
    GMT/skeleton hands: GMT/UTC
    Chapter ring: Time zone where most of the family lives (14 hour difference). The black segment aids in determining day or night there (Don't want to call mom at 0300!).

    Re: GMT Owners......

    Main hands - local time
    GMT hand on dial - GMT time
    Rotating ring - whichever time zone I want to monitor (this is convenient since all timezones are described as "GMT +x" so I just adjust according to that)
    Lots of dive watches.
