If you’ve already made your summer travel plans, but haven’t yet decided on your travel watch, be sure to check out the Q Timex Three Time Zone Chronograph. While the name is a mouthful, you get exactly what’s advertised—a vintage-inspired chrono with a peculiar complication that isn’t quite a GMT, but functions like one.
Off the Cuff: YEMA Superman 500 GMT
Of course, the main talking point here is the YEMA3000 calibre at the heart of this piece. The in-house movement has made appearances in the Worldtimer and Hertiage GMT collections previously and allows the wearer—in conjunction with the 24-hour bezel insert—to track a total of three time zones. However, this caller-GMT has never been used in a 50BAR watch before. In fact, this combination of water resistance and GMT function place the Superman 500 GMT among small school of fish.
Off the Cuff: Lorier Hyperion
If you put design + built quality + specs-for-the-money together, you get a recipe for a great watch. Lorier created that recipe when they released their very first model, the Neptune, and they have been using that same recipe ever since. It works.
