Now here’s a watch with some smarts. The T2 by Boston’s LTHR supply is a mechanical GMT disk watch with a lot of style and few odd features that make it more endearing than fashion-y. The watch shows a second timezone in a central disk that rotates the face every 24 hours. Separate hands tell the current time.
The important thing about the T2 is that it runs a ETA 2893-2, a mechanical movement with a GMT hand. It’s nothing particularly special but it’s massively important if the T2 is to be considered a piece of horological art and not a fashion item.
Quoth the creators:
As Victor noted in our Slack room, the watch scratches a certain Bauhaus itch that is missing in modern horology and well worth reviving. Companies like Junghans have been capturing it in the high end but at $279 the T2 ticks off that box at an entry-level price. It’s a fun piece and quite and interesting departure from the regular Kickstarter quartz three-handers.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
