I guess the watch thing was bound to be a hot issue. I can only make the following recommendations: 1. The Seiko GMT is uglier than any Rolex, and I am a Seiko fan. 2. Try the Rolex GMT with black bezel. With the fixed bezel of the Explorer II, you lose the ability to time parking meters, etc. It sounds trite, but the bi-directional bezel is really useful, and a lot easier than monkeying with little buttons and modes on a G-shock. Invicta makes a great Explorer II homage for about $100. 3. If you also scuba dive, Omega has a Seamaster GMT that does everything a Rolex Submariner and GMT-Master can do, with a more rugged movement. Oh, and it's half the price. 4. Watches with slide rules on the bezel look cheesey, but they are quite useful in a pinch (if you lose your e6b or it's out in the airplane and your wrist is in ops). 5. Check out the Wenger Commando GMT. It features one of the most accurate quartz movements ever, with GMT functionality.
