Your gateway to the world
the portal gmt
“The Portal is a gateway to the world, your world. This is the meaning behind the name.
My goal was to create a watch with the most beautiful world imaginable. Also, I liked the idea of being constantly reminded of the world every time I see it.
When I look at the Portal dial now, sometimes I forget to look at the time and am absorbed by the beauty of the world.
Like you, I care about the world and am thinking about it more than ever before.”
Matthew Cule, Founder
Inspired by the beauty of the world
The Portal GMT showcases a stunning and contemporary three-dimensional world map on a sunray moire dial. This unique 3D impression perfectly reveals the continents rising above the sea through a multi-layered process of micro printing.
The world dial is housed in a round 40mm case protected by sapphire glass, a push down crown inspired by the waves of the mediterranean sea, and complemented by two straps with quick change pins.
Reliability, precision, correct
An open caseback perfectly exhibits a top grade ETA 2893-2 automatic movement and is surrounded by an engraving of the continents and 24 destinations uniquely showing the correct world time zones in both GMT and BST.
The dual time functionality of the Swiss made movement displays local time via the hour and minute hands, and the GMT 24 hour hand can be set to your destination time.
Cule (small) details
You will discover over time a host of other Cule details, note the 3D reflections on the dial and the red tip of the Welsh dragon’s tail on the GMT hand, a clue to CuleM’s heritage.
These small details are evidence of the passion and story that has been thoughtfully built into every CuleM watch.
Complement your style with two straps
Every watch comes with two straps with quick release pins, which means that you can change your strap within just a few seconds to match your style.
Each watch comes with an Italian leather strap as standard and you can choose an additional Italian leather or Milanese strap for the stainless steel and black PVD watches.
The gold plated watch comes with a choice of two Italian straps.
We didn’t want to design just another watch box.
The design had to be something special and was inspired by trunks used by travellers embarking on long journeys in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Just imagine the places they had been and the stories they could tell.
So, we created a practical watch trunk with a watch compartment and drawer for additional straps for your stories.
The Portal GMT watch will be your gateway to the places you will go, the things you will do and the stories you will tell wearing the world on your wrist.
A CuleM watch shows your origin time as well as your destination time, ensuring that you are forever connected to the world.
