Off the Cuff: RZE Ascentus GMT

Watchmakers around the world must be anticipating a lot of travel in 2023, if the sudden proliferation of new and affordable GMTs is any indication. Seiko may well have gotten the ball rolling with their 5 Sports SSK line, but following hard upon we have seen GMTs from YEMA, Formex, Jack Mason, Nodus, Maen, Serica and Monta. Not to be outdone, RZE is the latest to throw its hat into the ring with the all-new Acsentus GMT, available for preorder today.
