Aerotec Ace X GMT Diver - Candy Apple Red
This is the red version of the 42mm Aerotec Ace X GMT Diver, which features a candy-apple red metallic dial with a 3D hammered effect that can play with the light as the watch moves. We are carrying all three colors of the Aerotec Ace X GMT Diver in our store.
Why We Love This Watch
Good Looks All-Around
The dial is undoubtedly one of the main attractions of this timepiece. However this watch looks equally interesting at any angle and at night too with the liberal use of two color lume, including lume on both crowns, with the clever and unique exhibition case-back with a 3D illustration of a diver's headgear, where there are two porthole windows where you'd see the lens in the diver's goggles, and with a great-looking (and very comfortable) finely brushed jubilee style bracelet that nicely tapers down to 18mm at the clasp, and sets off the watch with it's high domed sapphire crystal particularly well.
Attention to Detail
This is a very functional GMT, where clearly a lot of thought has gone into the design. You can track up to three time zones: One with the 12 hour hand, another with the 24 hour hand, and if you're used to reading that, the third by rotating the chapter ring. We also have a 60 minute diver watch timing bezel, which combined with the 200 meter water resistance and strong lume, loses none of the advantages of a dive watch. We love all the little touches throughout the design, from the orange mounts on both screw down crowns, to the practical adaption of the screw down tool grip holes on the back that mimic the window bolts you may see on a diving bell. Very nice indeed!

Please note that we mistakenly identified these watches as "travellers" GMTs in our August 2023 newsletter. To clarify here for you, these are "office" GMTS, and the time adjustment on these GMTs works in the same way as (for example) the Swiss Sellita SW330, with the second stop position on the crown adjusting the GMT 24 hour hand.
