When you set the reference time (home time) on your watch, the first thing you will want to do is line up all the hands, as synchronizing them now will help make the rest of the process easier. To do this, simply pull the winding crown all the way out to position 3 and then rotate the hands so that they line up with the 12 o’clock marker.
From here, you will need to keep rotating the hands until the 24-hour hand and the minute hand shows the reference time you need. Remember that this will always be in 24-hour format, with the 24-hour hands pointing to the corresponding values against the 24-hour scale on the external bezel.
When you set your Rolex Explorer II watch correctly as a GMT rolex replica watches, you can read the local time via the normal hour and minute hands on the dial, while the time at your home or reference location is shown by the 24-hour hand relative to the bezel, so you can see two different time zones at the same time, and because your reference time is always shown in 24-hour format, there is no confusion about the AM or PM time, even if you are on the other side of the world.
Another benefit of this style of GMT watch is that its jumping local hour hand is perfect for travel. For example, let’s say you’re flying from Los Angeles to Switzerland with a few hours’ layovers in New York. New York City is three hours ahead of Los Angeles, so when you land for a layover on the East Coast, simply unscrew the crown and jump the local time hand forward three hours so your watch will show the correct time for your current location.
When you land in Switzerland for your turnaround, simply jump the local hour hand forward again and your rolex swiss replica watches will reflect the time at your new location. The seconds and minutes hands remain moving while the local time hand is adjusted, so adjusting the time zone does not affect the watch’s timekeeping accuracy. In addition, the time in your home city (Los Angeles) will always be displayed by your 24-hour hand, so you won’t wake everyone up in the middle of the night when you accidentally call home by accidentally mixing up the morning and afternoon times.
