Not sure about Zulu, but my watch does dual time, 12/24, stores phone numbers, stopwatch, various alarms, and it has a neat feature where it sets itself using the radio signal from the big Atomic Clock in the states. The dual Analogue/Digital dial is also quite nice.
Hard to find in Canada, though. Had to get this one through eBay:

A few Christmas's ago, I got a Seiko "Sports 150". The face is analog (which I keep on local time) and I set the small window at the bottom to UTC in a 24 hour format. Has all the usual features, rotating bezel, alarm, day/date calendar, etc. but baro altimeter, GPS, or other exotic stuff. I think they're about $225 new, but check around.

A classic, sold since about 1978 was the Seiko "Worldtimer" digital, sold then for some $100, had a square face, and world time zones with 3 letter code... These Seiko are no longer available, yet I saw one for sale not too long ago in a jewelry store in Rio de Janeiro... Probably was a "leftover"...
Was a nice one if somewhere you could find one new (a leftover) or old, even, they were extremely accurate... sadly they did not have the 30 minutes "add-on" for Newfoundland Time for Gander/CYQX...
Casio used to make a $40 worldtimer equivalent... some 15-20 years ago, the 3 letter city code was displayed next to the digital time shown...
I dont know if Breitling makes anything inexpensive timepieces, but I have seen equivalents that look like "pilot watches" with analog and digital display. for some $100 to $250 or so...
Look in pilot and aviation oriented magazines...
Good luck -

I've got an Omega Speedmaster - the worst watch I've ever owned. It's been in my dresser drawer for 10 years. The best "pilot's watch" that I've ever owned is a Citizen Navihawk. I've had mine for 3 or 4 years now and it keeps excellent time and has all of the wold time zones - easily accessable. It's kind of spendy, but if you check the sales you can find them as low as about $175 dollars.
