First dual time True GMT watches from British Marloe Watch Company take flight

The Marloe GMT Night watch in a travel bag

British watchmaker Marloe has introduced its first GMT watch collection, a pair of limited edition £699 timepieces: the Marloe GMT Day and GMT Night.

Traditional Greenwich Meantime watches are designed to display two time zones simultaneously. They feature an additional hand that points to a 24-hour time scale on the bezel, allowing the wearer to quickly track time in a different zone. For this reason, GMT watches popular among travellers, pilots, and those who do business across different time zones.

The watches are being produced in a limited run of 500 each.

The Marloe GMT Day has a sky blue dial; the centre features a rugged texture that meets a smooth, chalky outer. The two textures are bridged by the applied hour indices. 

A mirror-polish finish is applied to the main and seconds hands, while the GMT hand features pillar-box red tip. 

The Marloe GMT Night features a contrasting twilight blue dial. White is used for the bezel and main minute marks, while bright orange is used for the seconds hand, and the tip of the GMT hand. Lume accents provide clarity in low-light conditions. 

GMT watches come in a variety of styles, from sporty and rugged to sleek and dressy. Some of the top GMT watch specialists include Rolex, Omega, Breitling, and Grand Seiko, among others.

Rolex’s GMT Master, for example, is one of the most iconic GMT watches in the world. It was originally designed in the 1950s for pilots, and has since become a popular choice for watch enthusiasts and collectors. Omega’s Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT, on the other hand, is a sporty and rugged option that’s popular with divers and adventurers.

GMT watches come in two variants: the so-called ‘office’ GMT and the ‘true’ GMT, the latter requires a far more complex movement. ‘True’ GMT movements are more complex to manufacture and are typically used by high-end Swiss brands.

The Marloe Watch Company has developed its own ‘true’ GMT watch built around a new movement, the Miyota 9075, which is an evolution of the Miyota 9039 movement used elsewhere in its range.

Both Marloe GMT watches feature a date window at 3 o’clock, a 40+ hour power reserve and the Miyota 9075 automatic mechanical movement that keeps the power reserve changed while worn.

Both Marloe GMT watches have a 42mm diameter case, and 50 meter water resistance.

The limited edition Marloe GMT models are available to buy from Marloe online.
