    Dual time zone watch means that the watch is able to display two different time zones at the same time. It allows the user to quickly and easily keep track of the time in their local time zone and another time zone of their choice at the same time. The dual time zone feature is especially useful for travelers, who can easily determine the time back home while being in a different part of the world.

    To better understand the functionality of a dual time watch, let’s take an example of a popular watch dual time – the “mens dual time watch“. This watch has two separate time displays, one on the main dial and the other on a smaller sub-dial. The main dial usually displays the local time, while the sub-dial is dedicated to the time in the second time zone. This synchronized setup allows users to easily read the time in both time zones at a glance.

How to set dual time watch

      Setting up a dual time zone watch is relatively simple and the exact process may vary depending on the specific watch model. Here we will outline the general steps for setting a dual time watch, using this watch as an example:

  1. Pull out the crown to adjust the hands to the time you want.
  2. Button A is to adjust the second time zone, meaning that by pressing button A, the 12 hour sub dial will rotate by one frame, for example, if you are on daylight saving time and it is now 10:00 Beijing time, and the second time zone is London time which is 7 hours slower than Beijing, then the London time is 3:00. then press button A and the hour hand will point to 3:00 on the 12 hours Button A points to 3 o’clock on 12 hours.

Dual time vs GMT

    While dual time zone watches and GMT watch have in common the display of multiple time zones, there are subtle differences between the two. GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) watches typically have a 24-hour hand that can be independently set to display a second time zone. Watch dual time, on the other hand, utilize a sub dial or additional display the second time zone.

     The advantage of a GMT watch is its ability to track time in three different time zones: local time, GMT and a second time zone. For this reason, GMT watches are popular with frequent flyers and those who are in constant contact with people on different continents. Dual time zone watch, while only displaying the time in two time zones, are favored for their simplicity and ease of use.
