Do you want auto or manual?
Do you want 24 hr dial or 12 hr dial?....to me this is what makes the Pam 233 dot series the most elegant execution of the GMT function. The Pam 12 hr igmt dial is not only easy to read, it has the least cluttered dial for gmt....

Good luck!

What makes me leave Rolex gmt is the dome crystal on the 233.. I know I will bump it on things and I feel like the dome crystal will protect the watch. I like the 12 hour with the am pm.. Then I see a pic of the Rolex and it looks so sharp.. I keep bouncing back and forth. Wish I could get two but I can only get one.. I don't mind a little clutter.. I have the 368 for a clean dial and I'm on the list to join the 372 club.. I'm just in need of a gmt. I just need to see that one pic or hear that one comment to make my mind up.. Thank-you

I travel often and my 233 is my travel partner. No crowns to unscrew, just flip open the crown lever and your ready to move the hour hand forward or backwards. One of the nice things about the 233 or 270 when traveling is that they don't draw the same attention that a Rolex does.

233 is a bit lower profile than a 270 and the dial is a bit cleaner.

I do like the GMTs but they were a bit too blingy for me.

Id say either 233 or white dial Exp 2.
