The bracelet for me, definitely. 39mm is too small for me though. I did buy a Phylida Aqua Terra homage. Similar green. That's 40mm, and I would have preferred 41-42mm, but it was only about £70.

WOW, I like that. Ombré with a slight fade to black around the edges. Very nice.

But I’m still waiting for more colors for the elite!

That shade of green but with a glossy dial like the blue or black versions, and I'd really be struggling with how to explain this to my wife! I can't get on with the ombre style dial, no offense intended to those who have and love their ombres.

No, I am with you! That is gorgeous. The green and orange mixed together is killer. Such an interesting color and texture. One of the their best for sure! I've had a green watch on my radar for years so this is on my must-have list now :lol:. Auto or GMT? I think I like the Auto more. :o

Ordinarily, I'd agree with you Andrew on the whys and wherefores of an Ombre dial, BUT the brushing on this green dial is so subtle it looks as if it is just texture, to whit I'd be prepared to forego my usual dislike for an Ombre.

I am usually wary about green dials, so this caught me completely by surprise with how lovely it looks. The blend of the colour, shading and ombre texture is a complete winner for me. I may have to get the Auto to complete my "one of each" C63 set. I'll sleep on it first though.

^^^^ The GMT would be my choice, Steve. The extra 'pop' of colour on the GMT hand works a treat.

All I need to do is convince myself that 39mm isn't too small. :wink: :wink:

My blue GMT just arrived this afternoon and now I see the green one. Not looking forward to this decision!

I’m in a similar position although I actually preordered the blue …and am now considering sending an email asking for a little swapsy to green!

what color is next?!

Date window aside.. anyone have thoughts on the Sealander Auto vs Rolex OP or Explorer?
Have seen smatterings of Sealander GMT compared to Rolex Explorer 2, just wanted to see what people thought about the simpler chapter ring/bezel.

I'm not really into green dials at all but I must admit that looks great! :thumbup:

The green dial is bloody nice! I've always been critical of the bronze ombre as it just seems to over the top to me. The blue dial is just too overdone, to the point of looking like it lost a fight with a sander. This one though: This one looks great. The ombre finish is more subtle. Just enough to give the dial a very interesting texture, without the "sanded to death" look.

It's a winner. I'll take mine in 36mm please.

I wonder if they will have a lot of this. I am not sure if there is a reason that they are releasing them in a staggered way (supply chain constraints?), but it must be an admin headache dealing with people who change their minds once something more to their taste is released. This is a loaded point as I’d like to them to confirm a larger sized model of the elite!
