Setting the GMT hand on the Aerospace GMT
« on: April 20, 2016, 02:59:08 AM »
Picked this GMT up recently and just arrived, but I have no idea on how to set the GMT hand. It moves with the Hour and minute hands when setting the time. Any tips would be appreciated.



Cheers

Have it sorted with help from a fellow Zodiaphile.   :sm3   

 "you don't actually set the GMT hand. The way these work is this. I will give you an example. Set the time in Sydney, now at 1810 local. This equates to 08Z, so if you rotate the outer bezel until the number 8 is next to the GMT hand, you read 08Z. At this point the number 2 is set above the 12 o'clock position. You now leave the outer bezel alone for the area you are in (Sydney) and you then read the correct GMT against local for 6 months until DST changes by one hour. Cheers, Buster"
