    on second thought, it's looking better and better.

    but that is not from a trusted TD, is it?

    If all functions are gen-like including world timer, second time zone, date and power reserve, the $400 is worthwhile. You can't get a decent new world timer for that price!

    I saw the video. Looks like all features working except the second timer...at 6oclock...

    Out of curiosity... how does one use this?

    Sorry we're a little late to the party people We haven't had easy access to everything of late...



    @dj3381 is right, it is about 4mm off from the gen thickness wise, owing to the asian 23J inside, though it actually wears OK as seen in pics

    The movement is the standard Dual time asian movement found in similar models, though because this model is actually 42mm, it isn't far off from the gen, unlike others where the gen is smaller...e.g. JLC Master Geographic which is about 39mm
    @ChromosomeYX That means the main time is set like a normal watch with the crown pulled out. When turning the crown counter clockwise, both sets of hands advance in time (on main dial and subdial), however when turning the hands clockwise, the main hands turn backward, but with the subdial at 6, only the hour hand turns back, allowing you to essentially set the second time zone

    The crown at 10 O'Clock when turned changes the disc with all the city names but it doesn't change the second time zone as per gen...that's probably a while off still The power reserve is fully functional however and so is the date, which is adjusted with the pusher at 2

    This is a different model than one that just came out from ZF, isn't it?

    The ZF dial texture is really crisp and subdial placement looks more accurate to gen. Great find. The blue tone is different to the previous model @chronomate (See TSwatch International - The Best Replica Watch Web Site)

    hehe yep, this was the TW one from a while ago The new ZF definitely has its perks as mentioned by @ChromosomeYX albeit a bit pricey IMHO.

    We speculated about ZF doing this a while ago, though here's a little more detailed look at the movement from the normal Master Geographic using this modded 9015 we took a few pics back a few months ago:

    What was the rep of the year for 2019?

    Unfortunately for me, the subdual spacing is still off and that bothers me. But, damn it’s a nice looking watch.

    I wouldn't say it is fixed, but the subdual spacing looks way better now. Also the price..
    Now let's see how they make it lose some thickness

    *I thought it was 15mm thick, but it's not, actually barely over 11mm

    What are the differences between the older version and this latest ZF?

    Check out our small mini comparison here --> What was the rep of the year for 2019?

    The biggest two things; the older version, using an asian 21J has a wider and thicker movement, and the subdial spacing is even further apart. The newer one by ZF uses a Miyota 9015 as a base, which is much thinner. The subdial spacing is much better, though as mentioned by @TheTarryStoolz is still a little bit off

    The A21J movement in this Polaris is actually not that bad, size wise. Though it makes a world of difference on the Master Geographic model.

    If the 6 subdial hour hand always moves in concert with the main hour hand (as described above), I don't see how that enables setting a 2nd time zone.

    It appears there are two independent perimeter rings. If the 24 hour ring moves with the watch, that would provide a 2nd time zone using the red triangle pointer at 6 o'clock. Then the city name ring would be set manually to correlate its current time. At least that's what it looks like to me.

    I have never liked city names on a GMT watch. It's way too much clutter and seldom indicative of anywhere I care about anyway. A slightly larger 24 scale that moves automatically and no names would be far more appealing to me. Then they wouldn't have to truncate the numeral 3 for the subdial. That's another design dislike of mine. Obviously these criticisms apply to the gen and are not faults of the rep alone.
    We are all related in time since time is relative to us all.

    Hey @KJ2020 , sorry for the late reply. We were probably not too clear with the description, when the crown is in the time setting position, winding counter clockwise advances the time on both the main hands and the subdial, while winding clockwise winds the main hands backwards, but the hour hand on the subdial remains stationary. Yes, not the most intuitive system but a second time zone can then in fact be set and displayed. Perhaps by first winding clockwise with an aim to setting the subdial time, then counterclockwise to set whatever is desired on the main hands.

    The crown at 10 changes the city ring to whatever one pleases, but the 24 hour ring is stationary
