Default Inexpensive GMT??

Hey everybody, my first post here! Do any of you have any ideas for an inexpensive automatic GMT? I currently have a Steinhart for traveling but I don't really like it. Guess it just kinda feels like a copy. I travel a lot and am often in places/countries I'm just not comfortable wearing my every day watch(Tudor BB) Would like to sell the Steinhart and buy something else, so I guess the $500 range is fine used. Must be waterproof/diver or something like that.

I love my Seiko SKX but they don't make a GMT.

I believe there's an Orient GMT worth checking out that may suit your price range

I don't think it has a real GMT hand. You move the bezel or something like that to change the time.



Edit: the Orient Star line looks like it might be what I'm looking for.

If you look hard enough, you may just stumble into a Longines Conquest GMT in that price range used.

If you can live with a quartz kinetic, Seiko makes two separate GMT's, that are both under $400.

Both have sapphire crystals, both have screw down crowns, both have true GMT function "jump" hour hands that operate the same way a Rolex GMT does.

Chazman can't spell and judging buy your handle you have serious carnal issues.
So we all have problems, what ya gonna do ?
At least I posted a GMT watch. Maybe the OP would consider a switch to quartz for the right price.

Yeah, but they're still quartz, cost alot more and are a pain to keep charged.
And you're coming down on me ???

The one you showed is quartz, so I gave a couple of more quartz options, so how is that coming down on you????

They aren't a pain to keep charged if you purchase a Phillips rechargeable candle set. Not only do you get some spiffy glass candles that last 20 hrs on a charge, but you get a kinetic watch recharger, can charge up to three kinetics a time, just like this.

I'd really like to find an automatic.


I really like the Seiko Marine Master GMT with the spring drive but their F-ing expensive, even used if you can find one.

Check out the Alpha GMT; it's an automatic and can be had for about $100 bucks brand new on eBay. I've got one myself and it's a great piece.

I think I made a decision. Think I'm guna order a Orient Star Seeker GMT. Under $500 new online, GMT hand, 100m water resistant, can hand wind, power reserve indicator, hacking, in house, no date cyclopes, never had a open case back before. While not the style I was looking for it has all the features I was looking for and looks nice.
