    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I’m often in Europe to teach and consult and to be honest I’ve taken to wearing two watches at times. It is much easier in a packed schedule demanding of attention to just look down and instantly know New York or GMT facilitating two schedules without thought.

    I have never owned a GMT so I am looking for advice, recommendations, and experience on the most unique Heuer/TH GMTs or four hand models (Autavia, Link, other, etc.). I’m partial to more unique models with good contrast between hands and face.

    Any insight? Any history? Any models that have a challenged reputation? Any models outside of TH? I did a cursory forum search here and didn’t find anything on the general subject of GMTs…

    Thanks in advance for the valued contribution!

    M.

    Don't bother with a Grand Carrera GMT as it only shows a 12 hour GMT - completely useless!

    Didn’t even know the GC GMT existed but your point makes absolute sense.

    Does TH make a “Coke” GMT.

    2446C GMT or 1163 / 11630 GMT are the main GMT models in Heuer's history. They're quite colorful and a bit showy though so may not be super ideal for client-facing situations. They're also chronographs so if you're looking for a 3-hander (well, 4 in this case), it wouldn't quite work.

    I'm actually in a fairly similar situation as you as it happens; I've got a lot of business in Europe even though I'm based in California. For me, the ideal is the Tudor Black Bay GMT; I also found that the Yema Superman GMT had a nice low-profile style.

    You could also look to a watch with a rotating 12-hour bezel, which wouldn't be GMT but would handle the time difference between New York and the EU without trouble. I've personally pre-ordered a Halios Fairwind with a 12-hour bezel which I expect will become my new travel watch.
