Greenwich Meantime is the solar mean time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich England, which has served as a global time standard since it was instituted at the International Meridian Conference in 1884.
Generations have relied upon the Royal Observatory’s GMT clock for its time-keeping accuracy and as a reference time independent of location. Hence, most time zones throughout the globe are based on a reference as a number of hours ahead of or behind the GMT time.
For years, many prestigious watchmakers from Rolex and TAG Heuer, Breitling and Graham to Invicta and Luminox have designed GMT wristwatches to synchronize with the Royal Observatory’s clock, providing users the ability to have Greenwich Meantime at their fingertips.
A GMT timepiece features an independent hour hand which may be set to the Greenwich Meantime. The GMT mechanism also offers dual time zone functionality, which comes in handy today for world travelers and international businessmen. Both rely on dual time zone GMT accuracy to conduct global business matters and go about their daily lives when traveling to different continents.
