Something New from Isotope Watches - the Isotope GMT 0º

This is the latest offering from the folks at Isotope. It is currently on a pre-order status. There will be six (6) versions of  the Isotope GMT 0º in total, two (2) of which will be limited editions.

Let's start out with the stars of the show, the two limited editions -

Like it's ruby-red sibling, this one is also limited to 49 pieces total.

And if that wasn't enough, Isotope will be offering several non-limited versions, including:

And not-so-basic black.

The dial in and of itself is a departure from traditional GMT/dual time zone watches that typically depend on an independent hand to indicate the different timezone.

The GMT indicator is positioned in a small window under the 12 o'clock position.  The date is indicated by a traveling red dot.

My understanding is that the list price will be $973.59 USD, with attractive discounts for those who opt to pre-order.
