"GMT" stands for Greenwich Mean Time and is the "0" point on the 24 hour scale of international timezones. Greenwich is in England, and from there other time zones are plus (+) or minus (-) GMT.
GMT was established so that travelers would be able to quickly to know what time it is all over the world as long as they knew what the GMT time was and what to add or subtract from that time to get the local time on another place. GMT watches were developed mostly for aviation purposes and include both the "local" and "GMT" time. Though in reality GMT watches tend to be used in different ways than their original purpose of knowing the local time and GMT only. By the way, GMT is also know as "UTC" (especially in some German watches). It is also worth noting that there are watches with a GMT label that are not true GMT watches.True GMT watches must offer at least one time on a 24 hour scale. There are some watches with two time zones each in a 12 hour format. These, while useful, are not true GMT watches. Most GMT watches have two hands to display the time in a 12-hour format and an independently adjustable 24-hour hand. High quality Japan made self winding automatic movement. The caliber 8215 is a Japanese automatic wristwatch movement that is used by many top watch manufacturers across the world. It's a very robust and reliable automatic movement. The 8215 is a non-hacking twenty-one (21) jewel movement with a uni-directional winding system (left rotation) with an accuracy of -20 to +40 seconds per day, and a power reserve of over 42 hours. It beats at 21,600 BPH or 3 Hz (6 half-cycles per second). I had tried to make pics from all angles. I do have many watches, but you will get what is seen in the pictures. They are not stock photos. Please review the pictures carefully. They are part of the description. I try my best to provide accurate descriptions and pictures, but occasionally I miss something.
I will consider that you accepted my terms and description. Please don't hold me responsible for the carriers performance. A never-ending source of misunderstandings often caused by the irresponsible advertising of certain competitors, who are usually the ones to refuse any responsibility when damage by water occurs.Here are the facts in plain English: 1. Every known brand submits the watch to a 2-phase test in a chamber, where it has to withstand to pressure for the minimum length of time required by industrial standards. It may seem a paradox, but low pressure-resistance, say at 0.5 bar equivalent to 50 cm depth is more critical to achieve, because increasing pressure tends to compress the seals, thereby increasing the resistance; the second phase test conducted at 3 bar 30 m. Because of a solid case-construction, the known brands watches will resist to 10 bar 100 m. Or 300 ft and we could confidently call it a «diver's watch» 2. HOWEVER: The water resistance of a wristwatch is constantly challenged by mechanical wear caused by bumps, shocks etc. Rapid changes in temperature, caustic acids, chemicals, etc.
And can therefore not be guaranteed as a permanent condition. I renounces to using inflationary «theoretical» claims; the decision to wear your valuable timepiece for swimming, diving or in the Sauna is yours. On a side-note: only very few specially trained and equipped divers reach depths of 100 m and wear professional computers to indicate the life-saving compression- and decompression data; at such depths, normal watches will just not do.
