^^^ I can’t comment on the automatic as I haven’t seen or handled one. But I have been wearing the GMT exclusively for the last three weeks or so and I have been incredibly impressed. It’s a beautiful watch and does the job brilliantly.

The green was announced the day I received my blue GMT. I've been looking for a green dial watch (I bought and returned that new Hodinkee Oris watch), so when this was announced I had to purchase it and wait to decide which to keep/return.

I was waiting for a picture of either one... and you post both! :lol:

The green is tops for that GMT. Look at that gorgeous thing! Ombré print gives it some depth too. Now, the blue does indeed seem to pop more but leaves me a bit cold as I'm not the biggest fan of that shade. Between the blue and black models I would go black.

Thanks Steve for your input on the Sealander GMT model. It helps to hear from someone that has bought & been wearing a Sealander. And, it has been good to see some real life pictures of the watches besides the company photos. I really am impressed with the looks of the green version on the camel strap. Another thing in the favor of GMT Sealander is the 56 hour power reserve. I am leaning towards going with the GMT rather than the Automatic at this point. Probably can't go wrong with either. :)

Ahhh...is this the first sighting of the forest green model out in the wilds?? You're teasing us, we need more of a reveal. Those little beauties need to de-robe from their celophane wrappers, it's hard to see the details of their dials. Both look very good on the camel leather straps. Let's see some more pictures. :D

Here are some close ups of the hunter green dial. Sorry the pics are rotated; not sure how to adjust that. Dial looks awesome! My first GMT and also now my largest watch (most of mine are 34-36mm range, except for my other CWard). I'll likely be ordering the bracelet in the future as well as looking at some other straps.

I will say that if this wasn't announced, I would have been 100% happy with the blue GMT. A pretty dark blue that looks black in some light. Not planning to unwrap that one as it will likely be making it's way back for a return.

One or two people have found that quite difficult recently. I started a thread on it on Sunday.

Good pictures of a nice looking watch, by the way. :thumbup:

Those show off the green far better than CW’s pics! The green actually looks appealing to me now. I’d be curious to see it on a darker brown strap.

Those pictures are great. Like a few others I don't know if I'd go Auto or GMT? I do like the green canvas with the GMT better though... makes it look like a field watch. :shock:

I would prefer it on a dark brown strap as well. It is definitely lighter or more orange than the website makes it seem. All of my other straps are 18mm so that will have to wait until I pick one out!

In the absence of my Ginza Seiko that seems to be getting pushed back like a cinema release , I have just placed an order for Hunter green auto on a green canvas and a bracelet.... with the £100 voucher it brings it down to £660 :thumbup:

Anyone noticed there’s no more metal bracelet as second option? I can’t find it - although I do have order in. No idea about lead time

^^^ The steel bracelets were available for a while as a stand-alone item. Now just the titanium ones are available. I suspect they have had a run on them and they will be back in stock at some point.
