Well, that鈥檚 a quick fix for that 24-click outer minute bezel, and not a bad idea. Now, you can track 2 additional time zones. Can鈥檛 imagine I鈥檇 ever need it, but it鈥檚 cool.

Nice job. Great looking watch.

Yes, with this modification the watch makes sense while keeping its good looks.
Do you have EU warehouses for EU-friendly shipping?

That鈥檚 a pretty good looking watch
Nice design!

I might be missing something, but how do the two 24 hr bezel rings adjust separately?
Very clever if they move independently.

Lookin' good SM!
I like it. Would be nice if the case were 43mm-44mm with 22mm lug width.

Not sure, but if it is just a bezel insert replacement from the earlier version which had the outer bezel with a 60-minute insert, the inner 24 hour bezel is fixed while the outer 24 hour bezel is bi-directional with 24 clicks.

I don鈥檛 understand why there are two 24-hour bezel rings. Is there a functional purpose or just done for aesthetics?

Gotcha! Be pretty cool if San Martin figured out a way to get the two rings to move independently - 4 time zones you can track simultaneously :D (Not that I really have a compelling need for that many :D

Like it, but would also like to understand how the bezel works in more detail please?
Agreed, more information on the bezel would be great thanks!

I like it a lot. But would like it even more if it had the new San Martin logo you presented us here last month.

The inner one is fixed, the other is a rotating bezel. You can track a second time zone by moving the GMT hand and setting it according to the fixed ring. Then, you can track a third time zone rotating the bezel.

How is this different from a GMT watch with only one 24-hour bezel?

Well, take for instance the picture, it鈥檚 10:10 as main time, 9:10 AM on the silver ring, 9:10 PM (21:10) on the black ring. The offset between silver and black ring is 12 hours but can be changed at will by rotating the bezel. If you have one less scale, you can visualize one less time zone.

I guess I do not see the substantial functional difference between this split bezel design and a single rotating bezel.

Seem to me the main difference is this split bezel has the 24-hour scale visible, whereas a user with a "standard" single bezel would need to know the standard 11'oclock marker corresponds to 2200 hours.
