    Cool, as soon as I hear back will update the thread as to the status.

    Hopefully ZF is possible at the moment, only the guys (or girls) on the ground know, so will see what she replies.

      Well technically speaking all the complications such as date, local and home window, as well as the 12 hour GMT function work just like on then gen albeit slightly differently since the GMT hand is not adjusted by the pushers.

        Can the GMT hand be moved by a crown setting? If so, then this is going to itch my wallet

          Yes but its tricky, watch the video, you have to reverse to change the difference between gmt hand and hour hand

              I see it. Around the 2minute mark of the video, the hour hand is aligned with the GMT hand and afterwards they move together. I have to process this lolz

                It's gonna be one fiddly ass GMT. Hypothetically (since I haven't gone hands on with it) it would mean if you started out in say California with both hour hands aligned. Then flew to New York which is + 3 hours ahead. You'd move both hands forward 3 hours, then move your home time hand, which dosnt move the GMT hand, backward back 3 hours. That's pretty simple and easy to do. Now unfortunately when you fly back you couldn't do the same thing since the GMT hand only goes in one direction. You would have to reverse the home hand a full 24 hours (because of the day night indicator), align the two hands, THEN move both of the hands to the correct time, AND THEN finally adjust the date cus it's probably not gonna be correct at that point.

                  My QC came in. Honestly everything looks very nice for the most part but I might have to RL. The date indicator seems to be between the dot and the 9 rather than being centered on the dot.

                    good luck with finding a better one with your TD.

                      The marker is literally almost between the two dates. If that's not a reason to RL I don't know what is

                      Considering Puretime has examples of well aligned date alignment:


                      I'd say getting a better one shouldn't be tough.

                        so every month after the seventh you get to go back in time and after the 5th you can jump into the future ... The first rep time machine.

                          I have this issue with my date wheel on my PPF 5712 can it be easily fixed?
