If it was a 40.5 - 44mm case id be on that faster than Usain Bolt on cocaine and red bull.

Ive been trying to work out what that flash of blue reminds me of and why I like it so much. The penny dropped. Rolex Yachtmaster.

Its not anything like the Rolex obviously, but just that blue instantly takes my minds eye to the Roley!

Ordered....delivery for 10th of April, it's my birthday on the 4th of April so I took it as a sign from the watch gods that it was the right thing to do..

I think this is stunning, the pop of blue and then the blue lume too. A lovely looking watch.

If I hadn’t spent my ‘watch fund’ at the weekend I’d be very tempted by this.

Aren’t you saving for another big watch purchase that starts with “R”? Stay the course, man!

If it helps though, my C63 auto wears larger than my 40mm C60. I haven’t tried a C63 GMT on, but a thin bezel does generally help it to wear larger.

Fantastic watch. Call me a bluff old traditionalist, but I’m really glad that I have the version with the solid black dial. The sapphire dial is not my thing.

You are a bluff old traditionalist. :D

I’m not a fan of sapphire dials either. I don’t know why, but I’ve yet to see a watch with a sapphire dial that I want. Anyway, I bought a different CWL watch today…..

Already got four C63, is this my fifth?
I would be quick, I don't think these will be around for long.

Interesting. I do like the sapphire, but think the black bezel looks like a tool watch in the same style as the Lympstone or Colchester. Unfortunately neither floats my boat. Perhaps my view will change with some real world pics

The watch is OK.

I agree, they need to come out with these in perhaps a 41mm. I am hoping that happens this year.

Thanks for the nudge mate! I need reminding why ive moved on a few watches I loved and not get distracted by things that pop up!
FOCUS BOY, FOCUS!!!!

I appreciate the heads up on the case size though. I sold my Sapphire as it was just a bit too small, and I passed on something very special for the same reason...! so that gives me a benchmark :thumbup:

For me this is the best of the C63 range so far. The black bezel and blue highlights move it much further away from the watch that so clearly inspired the first watches in the range. Size wise it's not for me but looks wise... "Yeah baby"

Did anyone else notice that Omega copied the CW light blue for their Planet Ocean Ultra Deep?
