Momentum Announces the Vortech GMT (with an Alarm!)

Aviation Momentum Watch News

Here is an announcement we can really get excited about. Canada’s Momentum Watches has announced a very cool looking titanium aviator that features both GMT and alarm complications. This new model is called the Vortech GMT and, given its feature set, should make for a very practical and easy-to-wear watch. This new model will be available soon and sports a 44mm titanium case with a lug to lug distance of 53mm and is powered by a Swiss ISA8176/1990 quartz movement.

We love the Vortech GMT’s simple aviator style, the subdued case design, and the additional contrast provided by the red and yellow hands for the Alarm and GMT settings, respectively. Momentum is claiming the alarm is quite loud and that pricing will start at a very reasonable $285 with a yet-to-be-priced option for a sapphire crystal (the base model uses mineral glass). Even among other quartz competition, that is a strong feature set, clean styling and a wearable size, all for under $300! We are going to do the right thing and kindly beg to get one in for review, because after all, if you’re going to go quartz, it should have an alarm (and a GMT).

  1. Looking forward to the review.  It’s good to hear that a sapphire crystal is optional; I can’t see myself buying a watch like this without one.  This seems to be what I’ve been looking for so now I’m already wondering when it’ll be released!

  2. This is an amazing watch for the price. Yes, sapphire crystal is a must have, along with titanium band so it’s all titanium. The only thing better than this would be to make it solar powered, so the battery never needs to be replaced…., awesome !
