hello watch experts!
this is my first time so please be gentle. I fly a lot a need a watch that does two time zones. Namely local and UTC. I love the look of the SNDA57P1 and read somewhere that the alarm sub dial can be used to show a second time zone. Is this correct? Can anyone help me with this?
Ideally id like an automatic chronograph with a dedicated analogue GMT hand like the Longines Grande Vitesse, but i love the value of the $150 seikos! There seems to be much more cred in wearing a watch that looks and feels so great for so little money.
many thanks to you all in advance.

yes, the alarm sub dial on the Seikos (7T62 movement, and others) can be easily used to track a second time zone.
Here is another suggestion for a flight watch.

Hi,
I found a video review of the SNDA57P1 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-dIVL0dRCk
Unfortunately, it doesn't have a 24 hour hand. I would suggest you check a true GMT watch, Seiko has a number of them, quartz or automatic.
Cheers,

thanks for the replies. Minidriver, the citizen is a great looking watch but I'm wondering about the radio controlled thing. I'm in Australia and I think the watch will not receive the radio signals here, and there are no transmitting stations. So, how accurate is the watch without the radio updates, and will it work normally?
Again, thanks for your interest.

Citizen does sell radio controlled models in Australia, so that is indicative of reception ability from the Japanese atomic clock radio towers. You may want to check with other Citizen ownersin your neck of the woods to see what kind of radio reception they are able to get.

If you do travel frequently to north America, Europe or Asia having a radio controlled watch is convenient as the time will self correct itself and also take into account daylight summer savings time, etc.

The Skyhawk's and any other u600/680 caliber citizen is -/+ 15 secs pet month without radio controlled sync.

These watches have a permanent UTC sub dial time indication and a 2.5 or 3.5 year power reserve.

These are some of the best offerings in the market today.
