What is GMT?
GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time. GMT is sometimes called UTC, which stands for Coordinated Universal Time. It is the time that is correct for the longitude 0, which passes through Greenwich near London, independent of winter or summer. United Kingdom does not observe GMT during daylight saving time in the summer. Instead, in the UK, the time is one hour ahead of GMT. In aviation, pilots are required to speak with Air Traffic Control only in GMT, this eliminates confusion when airplanes from around the globe arrive at an international airport such as JFK, O’Hare, LAX, CDG (Paris), LHR (London) and more. This time zone is known by pilots as Zulu Time, Pilots are also required to talk in military format, that is, EAT 23:30 Zulu Time, which means 11:30 PM GMT, which in the winter is the same as in the UK but in the summer is one hour behind the UK.
Torgoen has several models with the GMT function, you can see these by clicking here. In a GMT watch the GMT hand makes one revolution every 24 hours rather than the normal 12 hours of a conventional hand. So a GMT hand pointing towards the digit 6, is actually showing the time at noon.

What should I do if I need a new battery?
You can change your battery at any reputable watch maker. We recommend that you do not change a battery where they cannot check for water resistance after opening the back of the watch. Some watch makers don’t have the right equipment and if they do not have the experience they may damage the movement. It is enough to touch the electric coil accidently with tweezers to cause the movement to stop. The coil is not repairable and in such a case the module unit will have to be replaced.
How can I get service my watch if my warranty has expired?
We, of course are committed to servicing your watch even after your warranty has expired. Please contact our Customer Service page here for a quote. Make sure to describe the problem in as much detail as possible and we will get back to you with instructions of what to do and where to send your watch for repair, based on your location.
Setting chronograph hands to 0
When using your chronograph function you will notice that the hands do not re-set to 0 when you press the re-set button. This is common after replacing the batteries. To calibrate the sub-dials, we recommend the following videos for T16 and T18: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVQFjeLYfpI
