It's a nice watch just too busy with all the places scattered around. I would hope whoever was wearing the watch would know where on the planet they currently were, and set the GMT hand accordingly

Isn’t the point that providing you set your current location at 12, you can effectively read any of those time zones without moving anything? I’m not overly gone on the design myself, but I think it’s functional.
Nice thanks for posting , hot.

Moving your current location to 12 wouldn’t do anything unless the hands move too. Unless I’m mistaken it just indicates how many hours difference to GMT each location is by the position on the bezel.:{

Yes you set your location and the time, then you can read time at any of those time zones directly off the wrist. You just treat the relevant city name as the 12 marker. I think that’s how it works. Here’s a nicer version for anyone with a few extra quid

I love citizen watches - have had my current one for 11 years now and it's still going strong and the build quality is really good for the price. That said, I don't care for the design of this one (too much going on around the face), but they make some really nice watches for not much money.
I need/want the citizen bn0150-28e in a deal.

I sold mine because the lack of lume made it useless at night.

£164 at watchshop that’s a good price
One thing to mention - the way the GMT hand works. It can stay still whilst you adjust the 'hour time' - the main hour hand can jump forward in hourly intervals which lets you keep the GMT hand on your home time (true GMT). The main hour hands wont jump backwards but you simply go forward to the correct time then adjust the date (quick change). If you pull the crown out fully both main hands and GMT move in synch.
They also have the black version (BJ7107-83E) at the same price.

Yeah good price, but I'm sure you can it cheaper than that.

Only place I’ve seen it cheaper is at Sawgrass Mills Miami

Huh? Ones an inner rotating bezel, the other is an outer rotating bezel. Not sure what you mean. You’re of course free to prefer whatever you like, my point all along had simply been that the city names provides a function.

Erm, they serve the exact same purpose, obviously the Patek at thousands of times the cost will be a superior execution. Again not really sure what you’re getting at. The bezel here serves a purpose.

There’s no such thing as an inner rotating bezel?!

I’m not sure how to answer this if you’re just going to blankly deny inner rotating bezels exist, despite me posting a bunch of examples. It’s a very well known feature of loads of watches, just because you’re not familiar with it doesn’t mean it’s not a real thing!

Can I suggest you google ‘inner rotating bezel’ and read one of the thousands of results from watch media, watch forums, manufacturer websites, watch dealers etc? Or if you want to see it in action, YouTube search the same term!

Clearly we’re not going to have a productive conversation. You seem more interested in point scoring than facts. Have a nice day

Guess I’m not blocked anymore then? Notice that message has disappeared

Seriously, what’s up? Relax! I can’t believe this is all over the use of the term ‘inner rotating bezel’, is there more to this?

As I explained previously: “I suggest you google ‘inner rotating bezel’ and read one of the thousands of results from watch media, watch forums, manufacturer websites, watch dealers etc.”

If you want to learn about it then I really can’t make it simpler than that. If you don’t want to, then I don’t get the point of the conversation.

Ah at last something we can agree on! Hodinkee is a reputable site, I also enjoy their articles.

Interestingly when I did a Google search for "Hodinkee internal bezel" I found these 7 articles referencing internal rotating bezels on the very first page of results;

hodinkee.com/art…-on
hodinkee.com/art…-on
hodinkee.com/art…-on
hodinkee.com/art…-on
hodinkee.com/art…ing
hodinkee.com/art…-on
hodinkee.com/art…-on

Perhaps we should leave it there.

Can you try to constrain yourself to one response at a time? Just take your time and put it all down at once, cheers.

You literally named ONE website as reputable, here’s your quote: “No watchmaker or reputable site such as hodinkee.com use that term.”

I’ve then quoted you 7 links from the very first page of search results in which hodinkee.com use that term, the specific website YOU quoted as a reputable source.

I don’t care if Patek doesn’t use that term in marketing materials. I never said everyone needs to use it, I just said it’s a well known term. It is, the point has been evidenced multiple times now.

You’re demonstratively wrong and at this point it’s embarrassing. I don’t understand the mindset of people who would rather argue than learn something new.

Are you for real?

This is YOUR quote, not mine!!

“No watchmaker or reputable site such as hodinkee.com use that term as it’s incorrect.”

YOU suggested it was a reputable source, I hadn’t even mentioned Hodinkee before that!
