How do I adjust my TAG Heuer GMT?

When the crown is in position 2, you turn the crown anti-clockwise to change the date and clockwise to move the GMT hand forward- you can only move the date and GMT hand forward. The easiest way to set the GMT hand is on the hour, that is, when the minute hand is at 12 o’clock.

How does the tag GMT Work?

The GMT watch function is just a second hour hand on the same watch face that’s geared to rotate once every 24 hours — or exactly half as fast as the other hour hand. The second hour hand points to a second time scale that reads to 24 instead of 12, typically located on the innermost portion of the watch dial.

Why does my Tag Heuer run fast?
