Dual Time Zones

At the heart of the Hong Kong GMT is the ability to display two time zones on the dial. This is achieved using a GMT hand and 24 hour markers.

The GMT hand has been designed to blend in against the dial, but with a tip accented in white to denote/express the secondary time.

The outer GMT ring on the dial displays 24 hour markers to identify the hour for the second time zone.

DLC Coating

This special edition GMT features a DLC or "Diamond like carbon" coating that measures only a few micrometers thick.

The process involves the surface being vaporised with a diamond-like carbon layer to create an incomparable surface hardness and a deep black appearance.

This provides scratch resistance, high resistance to abrasion and wear, comfortable wearability, outstanding heat resistance, and matt black aesthetic.

British Design

Designed in Greenwich, London, this GMT showcases minimalist design cues, subtle colour pairings and contrasting elements to reflect the ethos and design principals of IOTA; functional but stylish.

316L Stainless Steel

Machined from 316L stainless steel for superior durability, with increased corrosion resistance and strength compared to softer alloys.  The London/New York/Sydney GMT casing and crown has a brushed metal finish with polished highlights for a contemporary look and feel.

Dial & Hands

The dial features traditional pad printed numerals and diagonals along with a de-bossed central GMT line. The hour markers are polished metal applied indices with 12 and 6 o'clock matt batons. All hands are diamond cut with a colourised GMT tip.

Swiss Made

With a battery life of 45 months and an accuracy of -10/ +20 sec/month. The GMT Collection is powered by the Swiss Made Ronda 515.24H movement and built by our Swiss partner in the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland.

Water Resistance

The screw down case back and gasket sealed crown are tested to be water resistant up to a depth of five atmospheres or 50 metres. The London/New York/ Sydney / Hong Kong GMT comes with a 2 year warranty.

Sapphire Crystal

Sapphire Crystal is one of the hardest substances on earth. All our watches are fitted with scratch resistant flat sapphire crystal with multilayer anti-reflective coating. Glass glare is reduced and dial legibility increased through coating the inside and outside surfaces of the crystal.

Waterproof Leather

Crafted in Germany from naturally shrunk French calfskin cowhide which is especially prepared to achieve a waterproof rating of 100m. These breathable strap features punched holes to the inside to aid airflow.

Quick Release

All straps for the GMT collection feature a quick release mechanism for a quick and easy installation and removal process without the need for watch tools or watch technician.
