Zelos is a manufacturer of the latest microbrand watches that’s joining the wave of launches of true GMT watches – Zelos Mako 300M GMT. In the past, GMT watches usually came with a high price tag. Zelos is introducing three new such watches in its Mako series. As we’ve come to expect from Zelos, these watches come with unique dials.
But what is a true GMT watch, and why is it so special? Any GMT watch is a watch that lets you track the time of 2 time zones at once. A true GMT watch allows you to keep track of time in two different time zones at once, with a separate 24-hour hand and a local hour hand that you can adjust independently in one-hour increments. This feature is particularly useful for frequent travelers or those who need to communicate with people in different parts of the world.
Zelos’ new GMT watches offer this functionality in a stylish and affordable package. They’re a great option for anyone looking for a reliable and versatile watch that can keep up with their busy lifestyle. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, a true GMT watch is a must-have accessory for any jetsetter.
