June 2022 is finally upon us, and with summer right around the corner our minds are turning towards jetting off to a faraway locale for fun in the sun. No serious traveler should be without a trusty GMT watch, however, and aBlogtoWatch is here to help with a rugged GMT pilot’s watch that combines athletic good looks with a classic piece of flight computer functionality. One member of our aBlogtoWatch community will receive this new Torgoen T21 Flight GMT watch, which sports a fully functional E6B analog flight computer on top of bulletproof quartz performance and a muscular take on the classic pilot watch form.
Measuring in at 44mm-wide, the 316L stainless steel case of the Torgoen T21 Flight GMT offers a bolder riff on the classic sports watch shape, with long tapering lugs, pointed crown guards, and a tough, functional fully brushed finish. With a durable sapphire crystal and an engraved caseback featuring a rendition of the classic P-47 Thunderbolt fighter plane, the T21 Flight GMT offers plenty of premium touches, but the rotating bezel is where this design truly sets itself apart. Torgoen tops this stainless steel bezel with an E6B flight computer scale. First developed for the U.S. Navy in the late 1930s, the E6B is a multipurpose circular slide rule which allows pilots to calculate crucial information such as fuel consumption, wind correction, time en route, and more quickly and effectively. With a wealth of information packed into a small area, this gives the T21 Flight GMT an impressive depth of functionality for pilots while adding a layer of purposeful style to the design. Torgoen rates the T21 Flight GMT for a solid 100 meters of water resistance.
Like the case, the Torgoen T21 Flight GMT’s dial presents a broad range of useful information in clean, athletic style. The overall colorway gives the design a warm, vintage character, with a matte cream dial surface accented by navy blue dial hardware and pops of vibrant orange. The sloping rehaut works in conjunction with the bezel to deliver a broad range of slide rule calculations, while Torgoen opts for a bold, clean mix of oversized printed Arabic numerals and applied indices for the hours scale. Torgoen maintains a classic, legible pilot’s watch feel with the T21 Flight GMT’s broad, boldly lumed Roman sword handset, while the shortened, arrow-tipped GMT hand meshes handsomely with the inner 24-hour scale and remains clear of the main timekeeping elements.
Torgoen powers the T21 Flight GMT with the Ronda 515.2.2401 Swiss quartz GMT movement. The 515.2.2401 is a tried-and-true quartz powerplant that offers both impressive durability and reliable performance, making this an ideal GMT companion for far-flung adventures. To complete the package, Torgoen fits the watch with a classic leather strap in medium brown. MSRP for the Torgoen T21 Flight GMT stands at $295.
