The GMT is a popular complication which has received a lot of praise and rise in popularity over the last few years. Sadly, the terms ‘rise in popularity’ and ‘waitlists’ go hand in hand these days. Waitlists carry premiums, and suddenly the watch of your dreams costs double of what the official website tells you.
Today, we are going to look into 3 impressive GMT watches you can get under €3.500
Tudor has come a long way the last few years. A few decades ago, Tudor was considered the poor man’s Rolex. Today, Tudor is a strong and independent brand with their own DNA and their own vision.
The Black Bay GMT is a perfect example of Tudor’s quest for independence. Even though this Black Bay has the same color scheme as the Rolex GMT Pepsi, both watches feel fundamentally different. Other than that, you can get the Black Bay with comparable quality to the GMT-Master for about one seventh of the price of the Rolex. Quite the bargain if you ask me.
The Graham Silverstone GMT is a classic execution of the GMT complication. The watch has an even black bezel, giving it a less flashy perception than other watches with multi-colored bezels. The skeletonized GMT-hand gives the watch a unique touch.
The Bell& Ross BRV2-93 GMT is the most affordable option on the list, but certainly not the least. The watch has a classic GMT-bezel in black and grey, giving it a visible and clear view between AM and PM without the use of flashy colors. The orange GMT-hand provides a playful touch or color. Combine this with a screw down crown and steel bracelet, and you have yourself one hell of a sports watch.
