A Message From Us To You

The lumed bezel remains for dive use but is now fully marked like that of a Mil-Sub (swoon). Moving on, we see the rehaut has been repurposed for a 24-hour GMT scale that corresponds to a matched orange GMT hand. No date is present in the render, but I wouldn't kick it out of bed. Functionality would be based on a version of the BB GMT's MT5612, with proper local jumping GMT support. In my mind, the key here is to protect the Pelagos' true use as a dive watch, but add a useful and vacation-friendly GMT feature.
Grand Seiko makes its share of chronographs, but a search of their website reveals all Spring Drive models, most with a decided bent toward the large and the sporty. While Spring Drive is in itself one of the reasons I love this Japanese watch company, my ideal Grand Seiko chronograph would feature a mechanical movement – Hi-Beat, if I can really dream – and it would land south of 40mm in diameter.
But as much as I love two-tone, there is no substitute for solid gold. Over the last year or so, I have fallen hard for gold watches – and my jealousy of Jack's Day-Date is also well noted. So when it came time for me to wish upon a horological star, I looked down at my wrist and thought, "This Explorer would look SICK in solid gold."
