The general look is surely vintage-inspired, but similar to some of the new-vintage designs for the Reverso, these sector dial models stand by themselves along with the chronograph has a mass appeal that is difficult to contend with. The second timezone is selected using a city disc at six along with the crown at 10. In case you’ve ever used this complication you’ll know it is a sensible and easy-to-manage GMT function that borrows just enough from a planet timer to be more than your casual GMT.The dial design is more asymmetrical (using the offset am/pm indication), however I believe that is the coolest of the three models. The industry dial mixes nicely with the complication, and I feel the GMT is only the ideal functionality for a well-rounded everyday watch. The other plus with all the Geographic complication is that it works both when changing time zones for travel, or assessing other time zones when linking with coworkers or friends.Those that understand JLC’s offerings know that they have a lot of beautifully made watches under $10,000. Therefore, while the price point of these sector dial versions is appealing (especially against the background of SIHH), the real achievement here’s the available sizing as well as the designs which are both lovely and distinctive among their sisters. While I am sure that some will take umbrage with the lack of lume or the highly vintage-inspired hand choice, the design works so well when seen as a whole.
