GMT Appreciation
Tudor Black Bay GMT
The Tudor Black Bay GMT is one of the most talked about watch currently - No surprise here as the Pepsi Bezel catches one's attention at first look. Similar to other Black Bays, it is encased in a 41mm stainless steel. The Tudor Black Bay GMT features a bright red 24 hour hand which looks really good paired with the 'Pepsi' bezel. The movement is a COSC Certified, in-house Tudor MT5652 with a 70 hours power reserve.
Estimated Price
Stainless Steel Bracelet - S$5328
Leather Strap - S$4896
 
 
TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 GMT
 
TAG Heuer also dished out their own in-house GMT movement. The Carrera Heuer 02 is very much a watch that allows one to admire the intricacies of a movement. It features a 'Batman' bezel (a black top and navy blue bottom) which immediately stood out. The case is 45mm, suitable for individuals who prefer bigger watches. However, the readability of the watch isn't very high, naturally.
Estimated Price
S$8000
 
 
 Ball AeroGMT II
 
 
Two coloured bezel seems like the trend this year, as the AeroGMT II features a unidirectional 'Coke' bezel. Similar to the Heuer 02 GMT, the AeroGMT II has a 45mm case (with the bezel). And like the Tudor Black Bay GMT, it features a red GMT hand. However the visibility of the AeroGMT II is very high - a black dial with with words. Ball is known for its tritium gas tubes and the AeroGMT II consist of 43 tritium gas tubes. The gas tubes unlike Super-Luminova, do not need light from the ambient first to work. It also uses the Ball's proprietary crown guard system (press a button before access to the crown guard) that increases security greatly. When flipped to the back, the back case has a shows a GMT of 24 cities, a very nice touch. The movement is a COSC Certified Ball RR1201-C, ETA 2893-2 Base.
Estimated Price
S$4500
 
 
TAG Heuer Aquaracer Pepsi GMT
Not a new arrival to the scene, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Pepsi GMT uses a Calibre 7 movement in a 43mm case. A Black opalin dial, white Super-LumiNova indexes and hands with a unidirectional turning pepsi bezel. Simple, clean, and affordable.
RRP
S$3850
