Received my Tudor Pepsi GMT back in late August, wore the watch a bit through rotation, and just notice my date jumped two days. Outside of this mentioned issue, the watch has been running fantastic. Reaching out for others that may have experienced any related issues with there GMT's.

I've seen a number of posts about it and IIRC it's a lubrication issue? In any event you should send it back in for service. I had one and I didn't experience the date wheel issue.

Personally, I would set the watch to the correct time and date. I would also give it 40 full winds. Then, I would see if it happens again. It’s not like you have to worry about the warranty period ending anytime soon. Of course send it in if it happens again. Maybe it was just a fluke.

I am coming up on my 5th week of ownership and it hasn't happened to me ::knock on wood:: But yes the issue is well-documented on TRF as well, and seems to come up between 1-6 weeks of ownership.

When I first received it, I did a full 30 day cycle of the date wheel before setting it to the correct one.

Is it the 28th? Well, the date wheel advanced again, now four days ahead after five days of run time. I will send the watch back for service in the near future, so do not despair on that note. But for now, I wish to see if there is a pattern of the jump cycle for a couple more days. After this cycle, I will reset the watch at a different GMT setting (...now on military), and make another observation. On a positive note, the watch is keeping fantastic time at +2 sec after five days (...or is it +345,602 seconds?).

I'm sorry to hear. Three months of daily wear, time zone change almost weekly, last week in China. Date has been flawless. Watch has been flawless. I haven't stopped the second hand once in the three months I've had it, and pretty consistently within one second of atomic clock. I do do a bit of positional regulation when off the wrist over night (worn +.7 spd, Crown Down -2.2 spd, Crown up +3.5 spd, Dial up -1.9 spd).

I could not be happier with my Tudor GMT.

Yeah sorry to hear it. Just as an aside, I monitor mine daily with a timegrapher and it has been a constant +1-2/day in the month I've owned it. No date issue as I mentioned above, but I am considering sending mine back due to some dust specks under the dial. But the watch is keeping such good time that I am hesitant to do it.

Despite some of the minor quality issues (that no brand really escapes), I am still in love with the watch.

I've had my GMT since late June and I've had zero issues with my watch. If what I heard was correct there was a small batch that were over lubricated and that is what causes the issue. I'm sure Tudor will take care of it promptly for you. Continue to enjoy it because it's one hell of a watch.

What is the wait time to get this issue fixed? Sucks that you have to wait to get the watch and then send back again.

I don't appreciate your rational response. This is the internet! He should storm into his AD and demand a new watch. Even if they accommodate his demand he must loudly shout how unexceptionable this is for a watch that costs nearly $4k! After receiving his repaired or replaced watch he should start a new thread about how the experience has ruined the watch for him.

I have been down this road before, mostly with my Omega's. It's ironic, that the cheaper (i.e. cost wise) my watches are, the less headaches and heartaches I have received. But, optimism most prevail, this is Tudor's new movement, and there will be bugs. I just hope it will not be as a bad experience with my Omega Broad Arrow fix, where that was also a new issued movement at the time.

Recycled the watch two days ago to London time for the GMT hand. Yesterday, perfect for the 25th day. Now, should be the 26th (...picture shows a mid- jump between the 26th to the 27th).

Thanks for the compliment.. Well, the watch is being sent in for service, where I was just at the dealer this afternoon. Looked around at the Rolex case, and no sport models to be seen. But the dealer's selection of Omegas was pretty intense; tried on the Speedmaster Racing dial, WOW!

Best of luck with the repair mate.
