    | I use my Torgoen T5 watch. It gains four second a year. It has the
    | normal watch hands plus a separately settable 24 hour hand and a 24 hour
    | clock face. You can reset the 24 hour hand without affecting the setting
    | of the other hands, the watch keeps running while resetting the 24 hour
    | hand so doesn't lose its accuracy. I normally keep the watch set to zone
    | time and the 24 hour hand set to Zulu. If traveling for just a few days
    | I will leave the watch set to my home zone and set the 24 hour time to
    | the zone in which I am traveling. On my recent voyage across the
    | Atlantic, since I would be crossing many zones and doing celnav, I set
    | the watch to Zulu and then adjusted the 24 hour hand to the zone times
    | being kept on board since I could make these adjustments without losing
    | Zulu time on the other hands. Here is a picture of the watch:

    Thank you for that information, Gary. That seems a really sensible
    arrangement of hands, for the likes of us.
    
    Do you happen to know that same design exists in cheaper watches, for thise
    of us for whom the very-best is more than good enough?
