    Yeah he's just saying the position should be the same distance from the 5 minute marker on both hour hands. They seem off.

    The GMT hand points to the 24 hour bezel, so it's 20.43 'there' and 11.43 'here'. This way you don't have to keep track of whether it's 8 o'clock AM or PM in the other time zone you're tracking, as you'd have to on a watch with a 12 hour GMT hand.

    Thanks Kap. I knew it was a simple sol. Comes in handy when traveling. I have to look up my manual on my T-Touch when I travel.

    Want to check with you guys but isnt the GMT hand still set incorrectly? I believe it should be pointed right before the 6. To reflect the time in a second zone, you rotate the bezel so that the GMT hand points to the 24 hour time in the second zone. This is done so that you don't have to rotate the GMT hand when you move to a different time zone. Am I correct?
