1970 GMT AUTOMATIC
1970 GMT Automatic was developed in collaboration with renowned watch specialist, Kristian Haagen. As a true feinschmecker, he has an uncompromising eye for quality and along with a lifelong passion for wristwatches, spotting and reviewing quality timepieces has become his livelihood.
1970 GMT Automatic is the result of a careful design process, where only the best could do. A Swiss automatic movement, a sophisticated green-gold bezel and a GMT function gives you a timepiece, unapologetic of its brilliance.
First created for pilots flying across time zones in a matter of hours, the GMT function kept track of both the local time and the time in the place from where they departed. No longer exclusive to the first great travellers of the world, the 1970 GMT Automatic is the perfect companion as you embark on your next adventurous travels.

The design of the 1970 GMT Automatic
As a fan of especially vintage watches and the way they patinate with time, I went for earthy tones for the turning bezels.
As a frequent flyer and hence traveling in different timezones, a watch with a GMT was the way to go when designing a timepiece for About Vintage.
Using an automatic Swiss movement was not a desire. It was a demand. The only way to go.
A NATO strap that matches the colour of the dial and/or the 24-hour GMT bezel is the way to wear this watch. However the mesh bracelet also looks amazing, reminding us of yesteryears traveling trends and exotic destinations pre-social media.

Very, very cool looking and nice watch
Great watch, good delevery, overall good experinece
The nato strap isn’t good quality. Watch is nice
Like the watch and the idea a lot, however I believe that the brand and what I thought was bigger aspirations for the brand (starting with the Haagen watch) got destroyed with massive Black Week/Friday, campaigns and discounts on other watches. I found this a bit sad.
I really like it, and the dial plays in different light from light green to all Black
