Es*** La Primera GMT Watch Review
You could also say that the hour indicators double as 24 hour scale indicators as well. This integration look neat, and ensures that the watch retains a traditional 60 minute diver's bezel as opposed to a GMT bezel. Such GMT watches with traditional dive bezels aren't that easy to find. The GMT hand is a classic red and white arrow, but I think Es*** would have been OK if they made the GMT hand a bit larger in size.For the most part the dial is uncluttered, but also undecorated. It isn't a "fancy looking" watch, but rather sober and tool-like. There are a few dial colors for each Es*** model. The La Primera GMT comes in black, silver, and an all lume and black version as well. Each is actually quite nice. The all lume version will actually come in an all DLC black case, and should be a winner for Es*** design wise, even though it is on the pricier side.The comfortable bracelet uses a extension style diver's deployment clasp that doubles as a micro-adjust to get the size of the watch right. This means that you might have the diver's extension open a bit most of the time for the watch to fit perfectly. This isn't exactly the most elegant solution to having a properly fitted bracelet, but it works. I have a feeling that Es*** will be re-evaluating the deployment clasp on the bracelet a bit in the future. Though right now it does secure easily and operates via push-button.Just a really elegant look. I did notice that the crown stem is a little bit wobbly when fully unscrewed to adjust the watch, but it shouldn't be in that position very often, and is totally secure when screwed down.Functionally, the watch makes use out of a Swiss ETA 2892-2 automatic movement. The watch has a GMT complication of course, which is not native to the 2892. So the watch must have some manner of GMT module over the movement as opposed to having opted for a 2893 movement that does have a GMT complication. The GMT function on the La Primera GMT watch will adjust in one hour increments, which is good. All the functions on the dial are laid out nicely, and in a logical manner. Hands are the right size, and the hour indicators are pretty huge. Each has a nice blue colored luminant that appears white during the day. The hour and minute hands are polish aside from the lume covered areas. They feel a bit flat in my opinion, but that is only because the dial itself is so deep. The hour indicators are applied, which help create more of a 3D look to the dial.In between the hour indicators is a scale for the 24 hour hand.
