    Longines VHP GMT

    Except for a short glance in a youtube video - I cannot find anything about this new model (which I guess has bluetooth built in because you can change time in an app).

    Anyone got any information on this new GMT?

    I've seen some info but can't remember where at the moment. The time setting is done by an app, but it flashes the phone screen and that is detected by a light sensor built into the '1' of the '12'. It's clearly visible in a photo of the dial. No Bluetooth.

    I believe that the two times - local and remote - can be set independently. Don't know if this can all be done manually as well. Pushing the crown in, which does nothing on the current 3-Hand model, is used to switch time zones.

    Otherwise it looks similar to the current 3-H. No idea whether the sizes are different but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a bit thicker, with the fourth hand.

    They will surely produce a user manual more promptly than they did for the 3-H; otherwise there's some useful but unusable functionality.

    Well this is interesting - it was in this video... and now has been edited out (as one of the comments notes):

    I think it was the Time+Tide video that I saw, and it has been (almost) eliminated. There's still a couple of unedited bits of text that refer to the GMT but no trace of anything else. Perhaps the clever flash time setting doesn't work

    Well, that's never stopped them before.
