I just received my Skagen GMT in the mail and I want to correct the previous post. This watch is a dual time zone watch. The thin hand with the red tip indicates the second time zone in 24 hour format. The second time zone can be set independantly of the hour and minute hand. Pilots, for example will set the 24 hour hand to Grenwich Mean Time(GMT) and set the regular hour hand to local time. The large red hand with the arrow at the end indicates when the alarm will go off. The small dial indicates seconds. The instructions that came with the watch do not cover all these details and you must go to the Skagen website to find the full instructions.
The watch is beautiful, and has a sturdy, high quality feel. It is a bit larger and thicker than I expected which is fine. I didn't want a thin delicate watch. The pictures on Amazon make the face look white but the color is actually slightly metallic, like aluminum.
I have only had the watch for a day so I can not attest to the durability or accuracy but so far I am very pleased with it.
