    Default Consensus on best Batman out of box

    So many newer ceramic versions and price points out there. Anyone think this is the best one right now?

    I don't think there's a good GMT out there as CHS movement is dodgy, the bi colour bezel is not exactly correct. The best I have seen is a 116710 green hand with a gen bezel and gen dial, i.e. Franken

    CHS = Correct hand stack
    ICHS = Incorrect hand stack

    Four digit GMTs have the GMT hand on the bottom of the hand stack. Five digit and six digit GMTs have the GMT hand above the hour hand.

    Rep GMTs with ETA clone movements have ICHS on 5 and 6 digit models. GMT hand is on the bottom. Asian super clone models have CHS but have been problematic in being able to function properly with the GMT complication. They require special care in setting, changing the dates, etc and can break if you aren't careful.

    I'll take ICHS any day and not have to worry about a minor misstep breaking my watch. Others have mastered the nuances and perform them without issue.

    Okay gotcha.. digesting this... looking at the ICHS reps now I see that factories should extend the coloring on the GMT hand so that it meets up to the base of the minute hand so that it looks like the colored part is always floating above the hour hand. Right now the coloring looks like it stops way before the base of any of the hands

    I see what you are saying. They would have to color the base of the GMT hand to make it LOOK kinda like it is above the hour hand since its base is a larger diameter than the hour hand base.

    Don't even get me started on the 6-digit black explorer hands OMG WTF Rolex

    Explorer II 42mm 216570 1:1 Noob Best Edition Black Dial A3187

    Since we're talking about GMTs and Explorers hehe, I just finished putting this baby together.
