    They are. I understood your "or 59" quote to be in reference to this fact; playing off of Mark's "1 click" idea.

    Correct!

    Funny thing though I almost always rotate mine counterclockwise like any other watch. I actually did not realize it was bidirectional until my daughter (to my horror) twisted it the other way! and its 120 clicks (just tested)

    Look at the wealth of knowledge that IWL is. Admittedly there's a lot of drivvle to trawl through first, but we get there eventually.

    Thanks for the pics, Mikey!

    The GMT pepsi is one of my favorites. I chose the 17600 (cal. 3175) with the non-independent hour hand, because it's easier to set the date - despite the fact that I don't care much for the date complication

    My GMT came with box and papers, but the bezel was way too faded for this particular watch. It's now clear to me that there are some pieces for sale in the pre-owned market with "artificially" faded bezels. Because this trend became fashionable, the prices get higher and so does the profit...

    Mine went to the RSC for a complete maintenance and I gave express instructions to replace the bezel, which they did.

    And the pic:

    Ohhh man....these GMT photos are giving me a serious case of the regrets! When I bought my Explorer II, the shop also had two GMTs for sale: a GMT-Master from 1967 and a GMT-Master II, late 70/early 80s era.

    I chose the Explorer for several reasons, but every time I see GMT pics like the beautiful ones here, I kind of wish I'd have purchased the GMT instead....

    You can always get one later - they're not particularly difficult to find - and keep the Explorer.
