Timex recently came out with a GMT watch with a black and blue bezel rotating unidirectional bezel. Clearly they designed this to piggyback aesthetically on the popularity of certain Rolex models (a Rolex “Batman” GMT in this case), such as they did with Timex Q and its blue and red Pepsi bezel.

The Allied Three GMT comes in a 43 mm diameter case that’s 13 mm in height and has a 22 mm interlug width. Currently, the Allied Three GMT comes with either a stainless steel bracelet or black leather strap.

Using the Lance-shaped luminescent center hour and minute hands, the orange arrow-tipped skeletonized GMT hand (which indicates the 24-hour time), and the 24-hour rotating day/night bezel, you can determine the time in three different timezones simultaneously.

Being that this is a Timex, in addition to the luminescent hands and hour dots, there’s an on-demand Indiglo light controlled by the pusher at 2 o’clock. The Allied Three GMT has a mineral crystal and is water-resistant to 100 meters. Retail is $179 on a leather strap and $199 on a stainless steel bracelet.
