Are you the type of guy or gal who wears a different watch depending on your outfit or mood? Or hell, if you’re loaded, maybe you even mix and match your timepiece with your car or motorcycle. If you consider yourself one of those people, then perhaps Seiko’s latest offering will catch your fancy.

Here we have a new collection of GMT pieces under the Seiko 5 Sports line. GMT, for those who aren’t aware, stands for Greenwich Mean Time, which is the timezone ±00:00 from which all others worldwide are based. A GMT watch allows you to view two timezones at once at any given time, and it’s function suits those who travel a lot and need to know what time it is in a different place with just a quick glance. Pretty frivolous in the age of smartphones, yes, but that long GMT hand and the hour numbers on the bezel create a timeless look that’s hard to beat.
The GMTs feature a 42.5mm stainless-steel case that’s 13.6mm thick. The crystal is made of hardlex, while the caseback is made of a see-through material. The stock bracelet is a jubilee design with a three-fold clasp and secure lock/push-button mechanism. In typical Seiko fashion, the crown sits at the 4 o’clock position. Water resistance is set at 100 meters, and color options include black/white, blue/black, and black/orange.
If the designs look familiar, that’s because these new GMTs are based on the iconic (and now-discontinued) Seiko SKX models. Based on watch groups we scoured online, these are already available in local shops. Will you be picking one up?
