Following a great deal of anticipation amongst fans of microband designs, Baltic, a watchmaker located in France has just released its Aquascaphe GMT, which will be the very first model featuring dual timezones.
The GMT watch is featured under its vintage-inspired diver line and will maintain the majority of its mid-century designs, in addition to their traditional Aquascaphe lineup. The case is made of 316L stainless steel measuring at 39mm perfect for the average wrist and measuring at only 12mm thick. That along with the double-domed sapphire crystal included in the design. Underneath the glass is a glossy black dial featuring markings bearing a triangular symmetry at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock numbers with a window showcasing the date near the 6 o’clock number with a numeral index at the 12 o’clock number.
Additionally, there will also be a colored 4th hand that reads a 2nd time zone which provides a new level of functionality via its 24-hr 2 directional rotating bezel. This is also a change up from their previous single-timezone collection. The timepiece competes with the traditional “beads of rice” maintaining the retro aesthetic of the brand.
For those interested in buying the Aquascaphe GMT watch from Baltic, it’s currently available on the Baltic website retailing got €921 EUR, approximately $1,110 USD, featuring 3 two-toned colors: Navy & orange, navy & turquoise and navy & gray.
