I've heard about those, and they're supposed to be rather nice.
Your Pam looks great by the way.post #16897 of 482451/15/13 at 10:44amQuote:
Depends on budget and what you are looking for. The Pepi GMT is probably one of the easiest to use and most reasonably priced GMT/second timezone watches.
If you are looking for something more upscale, AP's Royal Oak Dual Time is a very handsome watch (one of the guys here on SF has one), Vacheron makes a similar watch (they both use the same JLC base) the Overseas Dual Time, and Patek makes an Aquanaut with a dual timezone function. There are also some JLCs that are a bit less expensive that will give you a second time zone. If you are looking for something much sportier and chunkier, Panerai has made some GMT watches in the past...although they would not be my first choice for a Panerai or a GMT watch.post #16898 of 482451/15/13 at 11:06amQuote:Watches are just as much about appeal to emotion as to reason. That makes perfect sense to me.Originally Posted by Cylon
What you said really rings true for me too. I currently am working through an ALS bug, but the watches that appeal to me from them are the simpler ones: 1815 or the Richard Lange. Don't get me wrong, the Lange 1 is beautiful, but i'd get the "vanilla" version here as well. Let's see how long this bug lasts. If I do in fact spring for an ALS, I'm thinking a 5 year anniversary present: the 1815 in the year 2015 seems fitting right?
I like a bit of poetry.post #16899 of 482451/15/13 at 11:06amQuote:Honestly, I don't think anyone does the GMT watch better than Rolex.
But if you want something to change it up, I'd take a good look at a Nomos Zurich Weltzeit. They're a company that's definitely worth supporting, and their design chops are in the same league as the big boys. In fact, I'd say that they put some of the better-known companies to shame when it comes to design competency and focus; they're just incredibly fluent in the language of watchmaking, and there's a clear love for it in what they do. On the other hand, I'm probably biased because of the nice Christmas card that they sent me, but could you imagine any other watch company doing that!?
Anyway, I think this would complement your GMT very well, and without redundancy.post #16900 of 482451/15/13 at 11:07amQuote:
I agree with Dino, the Rolex GMT is one of the easiest to use. If you have this, why get another? I'd rather swap out the bezels for versatility OR step it up and get a worldtimer like the PP.
Otherwise get a Reverso Duo which puts a diff spin on the whole dual time thing
what about JLC home time, or ALS dual time or NOMOS?
EDIT: Belligero beat me to the punch and its a good piece of advice but the pic above is of the prototype. The real thing is more beige with a hint of red and blue. I've had this watch on my short list before but I dont know how I feel about the whole "heimat" thingpost #16901 of 482451/15/13 at 11:16amhttp://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-SEA-GULL-M201S-Ultra-Thin-Automatic-Mechanical-Watch-/271102518951?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160
Newly-arrived business-trip sort of watch. Automatic, could be Swiss or German if you look away quickly enough, the perfect size to fit under a shirt cuff. And unlikely to attract too much attention or cause stress to the reticent wearer. About $400 with shipping. An elegant solution.post #16902 of 482451/15/13 at 11:31amQuote:
are you looking for a dressier watch or another sporty one?Quote:
