Adventure-seeking world travelers appreciate a watch that tells the time in multiple places. Which is why Kobold created the Soarway GMT. It indicates the time in a second location via a hand that points to the 24-hour scale printed on the dial. Displaying the 24-hour scale on the dial, leaves the uni-directional rotating bezel uncluttered. Instead, the bezel features a single marker, filled with Superluminova luminous paint, allowing the wearer to mark a desired point in time and thereby either measure elapsed hours, minutes, or seconds, or use the bezel as a count-down timer.
A date aperture rounds off the Soarway GMT's spectrum of functions, the reliable operation of which is ensured by a secondary shock absorbtion system. In addition, a soft-iron core ensures that the automatic-winding movement is shielded from the adverse effects of increased levels of magnetism. Moreover, a domed and extra-thick sapphire crystal protects the watch dial-side, while a solid stainless steel screw-down caseback prevents moisture or dust particles from entering the case.
The Soarway GMT Avantgarde is limited to only twenty-five pieces. Each watch features a case made from surgical-grade stainless steel that has been polished to a high gloss and finished with black DLC coating, giving the watch an edgy, avantgarde look. This design queue is complemented by a stainless steel rotating bezel that features a circular brushed finish and polished knurled edges. Brushed steel screws on the strap attachment bars, as well as a brushed stainless steel case back and buckle furthermore underscore the look of the Soarway GMT Avantgarde. The dial of the Soarway GMT Avantgarde is finished in Deep Black (matte finish) and features brushed applique numerals that harmonize perfectly with the set of brushed steel hands.
The Soarway GMT is rated to a depth of 500 meters (1,650 feet). The watch comes on a custom-fitted Italian natural rubber strap (alligator strap optional) and arrives in a wooden collectors' box. The watch is covered by a 3-year warranty.
