There's just something about the red and blue...

 

The blue/red vintage GMT is a classic!  I had forgotten that Luca has worn one.  IIRC, now deceased clothing designer, Gianfranco Ferre also wore a vintage "Pepsi" GMT.

Titanium is a very cool for a watch!  I love the way it looks and feels.

I've owned each, and both are great.  My only issue with the current GMT, I just wish it had fewer polished surfaces.

Agreed.

There are advantages to both:

I love the 2254.50 but once I saw the 2231.50 I fell in love. It is so light, sometimes I have to check to make sure it is still on my wrist. happy.gif

2254.50. - the walnut Strand of Timezone.

I like your choice better, beowulf.

OR....MAYBE...hardcore TZers say that walnut Strands are the 2254.50 of Style Forvm?

On the wrist today.

Interesting, complex dial pattern....honestly don't recognize it, but maybe a Unitas 6497 base?

Like the large crown.

Solid guess on the 6497, but it's actually something much nicer (IMO) - a pristine vintage Hamilton cal. 917:

Not a wrist shot, but this is what I'm wearing today! New to me 145.012-67, all original except for the bracelet.



And an action shot...

Good guy, that Al! Not too many Canadian-made watches out there, either...
