That's how I see it. If you travel a lot, I can see the benefit of the Rolex GMT movement. Otherwise I think the ETA works great.JBZ wrote: ↑Sat Sep 21, 2019 4:25 amI can see it being useful if you’re an attorney, banker, etc that engages in cross border transactions where you’re not traveling, but need to stay in contact with someone in another time zone. Or I guess for anyone who needs to contact people in other time zones for work.
So if I’m in the US and dealing with someone in Europe, I’d want to keep the standard hour hand on my local time zone but easily adjust the 24 hour hand to remind myself of my counterpart’s time zone (for phone calls mostly).
For travel, the Rolex style independent hour hand makes a lot more sense.
Great point.Ryeguy wrote: ↑Sat Sep 21, 2019 4:59 am
I’ve traveled quite a bit with a 2893-2 and it works. On the plus side, every example I’ve owned has been very accurate. It requires more fiddling to set the dual times, but it isn’t like you have much else to do while sitting in on the airplane. I just use my phone to monitor the correct time while I reset the watch.
