C60 GMT Mk3 exceeding all my expectations.

Post by Bounce »

I purchased my C60 GMT Mk3 in the CW sale last week, it turned up Friday & I immediately set it & put it on.

I have worn it everyday for the last week & I checked it this evening & it has gained a total of 18 seconds, to say I am astounded is an understatement.

I have owned about 10 CW watches in the years previous & only one of them has to my memory performed this well & that was my C11 Extreme.

My last C60 Mk2 GMT gained about 15 secs a day from memory, which for a non COSC watch wasn't too bad, but this one is on par with my Bremont S500 that I own & that was quite a lot more expensive & COSC certified.

I am also very impressed with the overall quality of the watch, it is I think a definite step up from the MK2 GMT, the case, the bezel, the lume etc.

The rubber strap that it came on is very comfortable, but I can see me getting a St/Steel bracelet for it in the future.

So all in all I am a very happy CW owner again & long may it continue. :D

That’s a wonderful little review! And great photos of a great watch. I think the current CW bracelet is a must, such fantastic quality.

Excellent, the Mk3 gmt is the watch that drew me to the brand in 2019. It’s a brilliant watch. Started with blue and like you picked up a red in the sale too👍

Well I finally bit the bullet & ordered a St/Steel bracelet.
The Hybrid strap is comfortable, but I just think the watch looks better on the Bracelet.
Hopefully it will turn up soon. :-)

Good call! Not sure if you’ve had a CW bracelet before, but if not then let me tell you they are great. The QR pins and adjustable clasp are really nice and the whole thing is very high quality. You won’t find much if anything out there comparable for the price.

Thanks for that.

Yes I have had a number of CW watches on Bracelets, the last being a Vintage C60 with adjustable clasp, but not the QR pins so looking forward to receiving it.

Nice one to add to the collection! I’ve a black/black GMT which I’ve enjoyed immensely since first wearing it. Fit, finish, the whole piece is top quality. And your red bezel is very appealing.

I find the mk3 C60’s to be the best CW’s, although I have around 25 watches my standard black black mk3 C60 is the easy go to everyday choice, comfortable and faultless.

Wow—sorry I missed that version on the clearance/sale section. It’s quite the looker. I think the bracelets are a better match for the case. Can’t wait to see a pic when you get it installed.

The red really does look a lot better on the wrist. Nice pick up. I really like it.

Looking great there especially on the bracelet. I resisted putting my black one on today and went for blue mk2 instead.

I'm now feeling remorse. I had the same model in my cart during this morning's forum sale and let it go. It would have stretched my budget just a little far. :(

Great pictures Bounce. Enjoy your GMT.

Looks fantastic! CW’s exceptional bracelet is a must-have addition to any C60 or C65. I wonder why I waited so long to get my first.
