C65 AM GT LE on Worn & Wound

While this reads almost like an extended CW press release, I still think it’s worth sharing.

Some great examples in this thread! Here's an example that's definitely dual time rather than GMT!ImageImage
I love that! Truly dual time.

Re: Dual Time vs GMT

I’m a little late to this but I have a small collection of travellers watches & they are my most used variety because I travel a lot for work, or at least I used to. When I hear “dual time watch”, I think of a watch with a rotating 12-hour bezel or a chapter ring, which is offset so the main hour h...

Re: Dual Time vs GMT

When I was travelling for work, the watch that always appealed tome was the JLC Master Hometime... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200714/08f7df0848c55ed12339631622ad6e33.plist The blue second hour hand shows ‘hometime’ on a 12 hr scale, while the main hour shows local. Hometime is also shown on...

Re: I Am Not A Number I Am A Free Man

Congratulations on your retirement. Forty-four years with one company is impressive. I think “cradle-to-crave” jobs are becoming increasingly rare.

Enjoy your well-earned retirement.

Bet you wish you hadn't woken me up now.... :lol:
Not at all! I think all those examples serve to validate my question.

And I really wish that Anthropocene came in a non-LE version. That’s a beautiful watch.

Re: Dual Time vs GMT

On a serious note, I was wondering if perhaps GMT implied an 24 hour central hand with an adjustable bezel, while a dual time suggested a sundial with either a 24 hour hand or 12 hour hand? As in, “What’s the current time in Byzantium, Publius?” :lol: STUPID AUTOCORRECT! :lol: :lol: :lol: I literal...

Re: Dual Time vs GMT

I take the view that a watch described as a GMT would typically have the time in the 2nd time zone indicated by a hand pointing to a 24 hour scale, depicted on either an external bezel, or an internal rehaut. I.e. designs that are a nod to the original Rolex GMT Master that was designed for Pan Am ...

Re: Dual Time vs GMT

I have often wondered about this too, Andrew. I think that in a lot of people’s minds the differences are shrouded in mystery, especially when we add in the world timer description. My basic understanding (and forgive me if I am wrong here) is that a dual time might be something as simple as an adj...

Dual Time vs GMT

Are these terms synonyms or is there a difference between a dual time watch vs. a GMT complication? Perhaps there was a difference at one point but they’re now used interchangeably? Or are they NOT used interchangeably? Or maybe the difference in terms reflects how the second time is presented? The ...

Re: First Christopher Ward

I recently got into watch collecting, and heard about Christopher Ward. This was last Wednesday, the day before the sale started. I ended up getting this one for half-off and couldn’t be happier. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200713/26240f2114c1350b82a174a9fadf3b53.jpg Sent from my iPhone usin...

Re: Digging For Info

Strikes me that ‘waterproof’ and ‘stainless steel back’ might more likely be seen on a cheaper watch.... Unless of course you’ve uncovered the 1967 (March) prototype version of that Rolex..... you know the one, the one with the red writing on it? The prototype was lost from the factory under unusua...
