Pilot style GMT suggestions please.

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents

I’m looking for a pilot style watch with a GMT function for my next purchase.

I like the look & spec of the Timefactors Speedbird GMT (PRS-22 GMT) & wondered if there were any alternatives/variations out there that I should also be considering.

It has to be a manual/auto with a price up to £650/700, ideally 40mm & 20mm lugs, steel bracelet & date not essential but would be nice, with a clean understated, but classy look to it, new would be preferred (warranty). Also, I would like something from a respected & recommended non-mainstream manufacturer, (any chance Roy?).

All suggestions & recommendations would be most welcome.

TIA

Cheers

R

How about one of these unbranded Parnis GMT with ceramic bezel , sapphire crystal and Asian ETA clone GMT movement. Only £ 70 on EBay :partytime:

Thanks Gents

Some interesting alternative manufacturers suggested there guys.

I would prefer a plain ‘no numbers’ bezel like the Stowa/Steinhart flieger offerings.

Cheers

That s/s one is just stunning - those must be the best flieger hands ever!

Checked out the Fortis web-site, it doesn’t appear to be a current offering, ho hum :(

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Loving the Fortis Flieger, but prefer the other, more minimal watch face design (Type A vs Type B)

They're both Type A aren't they? Type B fliegers have the minutes/seconds as the main markers. The OP is after a GMT.

That’s my understanding as well.

Thanks for all the ideas & suggestions guys.

You want one of these :yes:

Easily within your budget when I bought mine S/H from this forum in 2006. It could still be now - if you are prepared to wait, and can find one.
