Default Affordable GMT?

While im on a kick for buying watches that I haven't owned before.....
How about a GMT diver? (I only wear divers, even though i hate the water) any ideas?
My idea of "affordable" is $500.
I mean, if im going to restock my watch box, I might as well fill it with some different types of divers than i had before.

Define affordable. Because there’s a lot of GMT’s out there.

You make no mention of pre-owned so must assume new.

Some GMT's around the $500 mark (when I last looked) and perhaps not all divers:
- Seiko SUN065
- Glycine
- Orient Polaris
- Steinhart Ocean series
- Tauchmeister
- Citizen
- Marathon
... and


Good luck with the hunt

Well the Squale Tropic GMT is a favorite of mine, and of course Steinhart has some excellent models as well.

Around 2010 Orient made an “Excursionist” GMT. It has a screw down crown and has 200m of water resistance. Made in 3 colors. Hard to come by but mine was obtained NOS.
