GQ Watch Guide 2020 & 2021 - British GQ

I’ve had the watch for a month now and my wife pinched it off me for much of that time. At 40mm across, the watch definitely fits into the current fashion for gender-neutral timepieces, and she liked the easy combination of white and polished steel. It goes with everything.

One of the most head-turning pieces to date is the Portal GMT with 40mm stainless-steel case and ‘Mediterranean Sea Blue’ dial with a layered map of the world as seen from above, that reflects light and gives depth to the face.

The look is mesmerizing, and the color catches the eye from across the room.

Most big-brand watches at this price do not feature a top-grade ETA 2893 movement or a five-year guarantee, and none that I’m aware of has a dial with this level of detail. The CuleM will turn more heads and elicit more comments from observers than your typical similarly priced Hamilton or Tissot that one might cross-shop it with.

“The dial of the Portal edition features a remarkable world map executed in 3-D that can be had in grey, blue, black or champagne variations and with steel, black PVD or gold-plated cases. All feature good quality ETA movements.”

CuleM Portal GMT | 

The Prettiest Watch So Far in 2021?

Make your countdown to carbon neutral as stylish as possible

The shapes of the continents on The Portal are inspired by the mountains and level differences that you find when seeing the world from the sky. 

The dial is made from brass, with a sunray brush finishing, creating a “moiré” effect, which is inspired by the rising of the sun on the Earth. It is then plated using multiple layers of colour (one plating for each colour on the dial).

“SOLD ON GMT.

CuleM quite logically devotes its first collection ... exclusively to GMTs. The dial features a three-dimensional world map, while one the back are engraved 24 destinations in GMT and BST zones. The watch is powered by the inevitable automatic ETA2893-2 and encased beneath a sapphire crystal in an elegant and sober stainless steel case.”

“Though not obvious in daylight, a scattering of luminous material shows the approximate position of cities and other densely populated areas across the world map. This detail, combined with the slim hand design only seen on this model, made the Lights a personal favorite of the trio.”

“With a 28,800 vph and a 42-hour power reserve, the Culem watches are perfectly able to perform through the rigors of travel. But the real key success lies in the design."

"... arguably the perfect GMT for the avid-travelling, precision-loving watch collector. With an ability to accurately and correctly display the time differences in 24 of the world’s timezones... the World GMT is a marvel."

"His inaugural collection showcases a well-considered form and function allowing travellers to keep up with local time in style."

Women's timepieces and embracing history: the watch industry has come a long way in ten years.
