The sunburst blue dial is very readable with three oversized indexes that evoke three cardinal points: north, west and east. The hour, minute and second hands are “steel” while the one indicating the second time zone is red in order to stand out from the first glance.
All are of course covered with Superluminova (white) in order to be perfectly visible in the darkness of a cockpit or at night while exploring.
The date, essential on a GMT, appears in the classic way at 6 o’clock. Note that this GMT Neso from MATWatches is equipped with a 24-hour bidirectional rotating bezel in blue aluminum with silver numerals, which makes it possible to display, if necessary, a third time zone.
If the GMT function is commonly used by adventurers and explorers, this timepiece can also be used as a compass. In fact, in the northern hemisphere, the GMT (or 24h) hand indicates north when it is oriented towards the sun. In the southern hemisphere, it will point south.
On the engine side, this novelty features an automatic Swiss movement (Soprod) with around forty hours of power reserve.
As usual at MATWatches, these pieces are delivered in their recycled leather case with three straps (with reinforced pumps) and their tool to change them. Also available on a three-link steel bracelet.
A beautiful product (neat and successful design), very well finished and very well placed in price. In short, as usual, we recommend.
