Hello guys,

the GMT hand loses 1/2 hour every hour. Another way of saying, I set it three hours ahead and in six hours the GMT hand and the hour hand lineup

and then in another six hours the GMT hand is three hours behind. 

ok so two part question

boutht this Rolex GMT Master ll on another forum as a problem free well running watch. 

1/. Is this something that could have happened  during shipping

2/   any one know what the problem is and how to fix it

thx in advance for any info

Uhhhhmmmm... it's a 24 hour hand?  You don't read the hour on the dial, you use the bezel to read the GMT time.  Sounds to me like it's functioning just the way it should.

Doh, so it’s me that needs fixen  :frusty: Feel like an idiot

First GMT, I thought with a GMT you set  the xtra hand so many hour ahead or behind and it would maintain it.

Apparently not, so what is the  Forth hand for ?

Ok, from the picture...  The hour hand says that it's 1:41 in that picture.  The GMT hand is pointing just before the 23, so it's 22:41 (or 10:41 PM on a 24 hour clock.)

 

In six hours, the hour hand will be pointing at 6:41, and the GMT will have moved to 4:41 when read against the bezel, so it will be functioning correctly.  On a GMT that works like the gen, you should be able to pull the crown out once (date set position), moving the crown in one direction sets the date, in the other direction, it should set the GMT hand.  Or you can leave it like it is and rotate the bezel for the correct GMT time.

This is why I don’t have a GMT, that 4th hand just blurs with the other three.  Nasty business.
