Globe Trotting with the Hager GMT Traveler

March 15, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

So, do you remember that Hager Commando that we reviewed a bit ago?  (If not, you can read up on it here).  Now that we’re up to speed, you will recall that I certainly did like what I saw with that watch.  What if, however, you could change out the Miyota 9015 for something Swiss,…

Double your pleasure and double your fun with good old Arnold & Son! The DBG Skeleton is a beautiful double balance GMT piece with a skeletonized body and a pair of symmetrical balance wheels.

Introducing the Eberhard Scafograph GMT

March 13, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

It really should be no surprise that I was drawn to the Eberhard Scafograph GMT that was just announced, should it?  Then again, why should the addition of a relatively simple complication elevate a basic sports watch so much in my book?  I have my reasons for it, most simply because it mixes up what…

February 24, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Ok, dear reader – it’s time for me to dive back into the world of GMT watch reviews.  As you can see from that article title, we’re diving back into the catalog of Christopher Ward.  It’s not my first time looking at their watches, nor the first time with their C60 Trident lineup.  The very…



Travelling around with the Ball Pilot GMT

February 6, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

Over the past few years, I’ve dipped into the Ball catalog more than a few times, and have sampled quite a variety of their offerings.  With my renewed focus on models with GMT complications, it was only natural I would return to that well.  Surprisingly (for me), the watch I was looking for is part…



Flying High with the Oris Big Crown ProPilot GMT

February 2, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

As you may have noticed, I have been working specifically to focus in on reviewing GMT watches lately.  This has been my favorite complication for some time now, and I am of course aware of some of the “big” models that are out there, the ones everyone thinks of from Switzerland.  That said, there are…



Getting busy with the Alpina GMT 4 Business Hours

January 17, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

It was not all that long ago (see here) that I fell pretty hard for the Alpina Alpiner 4. It was my first time going hands-on with the brand, and I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw there. Well, if you know me, you know I like GMT complications. I’ve been starting to focus in a little more closely on those watches lately, and I saw Alpina had a few in the mix. Put two and two together, and you’ve got our review today of the Alpina GMT 4 Business Hours.
