Hi- As the title indicates, I want to get a quartz travel watch, preferably world time but GMT will work also. I prefer quartz because I want this to be a "grab & go" watch and quartz watches are normally less expensive. I am looking to spend less than $1000 for this watch. I know that many will suggest the Casio Worldtimer and it is a nice and very inexpensive watch but I prefer a more traditional analog dial. Two that I have found that are of interest are the Delma Cayman Worldtimer and Fromanteel Globetrotter GMT. Appreciate any suggestions you can provide. If this question has been addressed in another recent post, please let me know. Thank you!

Hi- Great suggestion. I have given this one hard thought. My reservations are the case size (43mm?), the dial is kinda busy, and questions regarding build quality. Maybe you can comment on these? However, spot-on suggestion. Thanks

if you're willing to put up with seiko kinetics, I use the kinetic landmaster as my travel watch

if you're not in need of a local jump hour GMT, the timex waterbury is pretty sweet looking and well under $1k

Citizen makes a very nice titanium GMT watch, BJ7111-86L blue dial, and BJ7110-89E, Glycine makes some nice GMT watches definitely worth a look. Seiko 5 new GMT might work you. Best of luck with your search!!!

I own this watch. It wears big and is pretty chunky but whatever the coating is on the bezel, I haven't been able to mark it and I'm not gentle with my watches (well the rugged ones at least). Sapphire glass, 44mm, 51mm lug to lug, 22mm lug width and it's solar. It's also got a decent clasp with a button controlled micro adjustment / dive extension.

The Longines V.H.P. GMT fits your needs perfectly. Jomashop has them for less than 1K. It has some interesting features not normally found on a GMT. The watch was recently discontinued, but it is really cool.

I managed to get mine on eBay for under $200 it was an open box item meaning it didn’t come with the original packaging. It does have a built in ratchet divers extension plus it has a useful feature where you can change the main hour hand while the gmt hand stays put. But keep in mind the date changes when you operate the crown in the opposite direction.
