That is a superb looking collection, especially with the silver bezel.

They seemed to have stopped the GMT however? I was hoping to see that with a silver bezel.

yep. lovely watches.

At the moment I think I'd struggle with the size but will see if any are around in some local shopping mall/sites to try on a blue dialled version.
I'd like a GMT so shame it's not in that version also.

I have the older model in the GMT, so they may come out in due course. I do hope so, as I love that silver bezel, and there is always room for another GMT! :lol:

Good lookers but I'm not buying another 44mm watch... this would be killer at 40-41mm
I'll never buy another watch. Not until the next one.

The 3-hander with silver bezel was introduced last year. They just added bracelet versions for the black and blue dials and a new black with red version.

Really enjoy mine, hardly have been wearing any other watches in the last couple of weeks.

I must say Nordwulf, your Alpina on the brown strap is the business, looks better than the promo photos and at $799 in the US a great deal for you Yanks. No doubt a bit pricier on these shores.

Anyway too large for me too I fear :(

The GMT version I had (briefly) wore smaller than expected due to the bezel and lugs shape and the quality was superb so well worth a try on

Tyke/Nordwulf, would either of you be able to confirm the lug-to-lug on these? The black dial is on offer on Amazon.com for $640 and as long as they come in no bigger than a C60 I think I'll bite...thanks!

47 mm at the spring bars
52 mm outside of lugs

It wears pretty much the same as a C60 but it looks a bit bigger because of +1 mm and the thinner bezel.

Great, thanks for the quick reply Nordwulf, much appreciated. Will think a bot longer before pulling the trigger.
