    FC-350 GMT setting question

    Hi all,

    I just purchased a GMT Index classic with the FC-350 movement, and I was wondering how the second time zone setting works. When I try to adjust it, it's the hour hand that moves, not the GMT complication hand with the red triangle... Is this normal? If so what's the best way to set this for GMT time when I'm in PST time? Thanks

    The 24 hour hand is the home time, meaning where you live. The 12 hour hand is the local time, meaning where you are at that time. So, when you are home, both hour hands are set to the same time. When you travel, say to London, which is 8 hours ahead, you set the 12 hour hand back 8 hours. So, when you check the time, the 12 hour hand is set to local time (london), and the 24 hour hand remains on home time (PST).

    Perfect! Thank you!
    I did a little more reading on GMT movements and I'm actually quite happy with the way the FC-350 on works :)
