HEMEL 24 Meca-Quartz Chronograph Watch with GMT Bezel and Sapphire Crystal #HFT20-VK2

This new HEMEL chronograph watch has a GMT bezel that allows you to track two 12-hour time zones. The flat sapphire crystal provides an elegant look while at the same time providing scratch resistance so your watch stays looking new. The watch features a 24-hour sub-dial at 3:00 and a 60-minute stopwatch function at 9:00 on the dial. The red seconds hand is engaged when you use the stopwatch function.

The 316L surgical grade stainless steel case is 42mm in diameter making it very wearable for just about anyone. Inside is a VK64 mecaquartz Quartz caliber that incorporates specific gear architecture that creates a smooth second hand sweep (like the motion of an automatic). C3 SuperLuminova is used on the hands and hour makers for reading time in the dark. C3 glows with a bright greenish hue when charged by a strong light. A heavy duty aviator strap is included that features metal rivets at the lugs and contrasting stitching. Lug width is 20mm. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet.

5 of 5 Great design and worth your hard earned bucks. February 3, 2020
Reviewer: Bruno from New York State USA  
First, I must confess that I did not purchase this watch from Marc (bought other brands from him in the past). I came across this watch on ebay in excellent pre-owned condition and immediately bought it because of its looks (and the price was too good not to). You get a lot of quality for your money. The fit and finish is fantastic. The bezel is precisely lined up. The only slight negative is the lack of a running second hand register. You get a 24 hour register instead.
Other than that, there's not much to fault. The contrast of the stainless bezel and black dial makes this watch. The onion crown and riveted strap (excellent strap by the way) will remind you of the WW2 Fliegers. The lume is really good and uses C3 Superluminova.
While it obviously won't replace my Sinn 104 or my Tag Carrera, it will definitely get much wrist time.
PS...I cannot find out where these Hemel's are manufactured. The lack of any country stampings on the case and dial point to China but who knows.
