Well there is that- I would be lying if I didn’t admit that the orange hand looks cool 😄

Hi all,

long time no see, but after seeing C63 Green GMT I just had to get it, and again after some time wear a CW.

It looks stunning on the photos, and like many, I've been emailed on Friday with news that bracelets will be on stock again on Monday, Nov 1st. Looking forward to see the item sent notification. :)

BTW, when considering GMT vs Automatic, it's worth mentioning that it's a lot of dial real estate on the auto, if you don't prefer larger watches. No matter if you don't need the GMT function.

Will share photos once it arrives.

I ordered a bracelet for my GMT on Saturday. I’ve got the confirmation but I’m still awaiting the dispatch email.

Think I would have chosen the auto, but a tough call. Either looks superb. Please get those picis up, very keen to see it in the flesh. Is that you in the avatar doing the dry suit diving? I did quite a bit in my time, wore a Northern Diver compressed neoprene.

Des :D

I will, I plan to compare it also on the macro level with my Explorer 2.

You are correct regarding the drysuit, this one is trilaminate one from Bare, X Mission model. :)

Have you seen this? I got an white gmt c63, and while other new colour variants looked cool, I still felt I chose correctly.
But this…freaking cool. Carbon injection/forging is no new thing and do trust me, this ought to be tough as nails. My wedding ring is made with procedure and while I mainly remember to remove for gym I always dont - still no markings.

Just received the black dial c63 on a bracelet and am really liking it; I much prefer the bracelet to the straps. Here it is next to the white dial. Something had been bugging me about the white dial, and I just realized it's the fact that the markers seem washed out to me. Would have preferred some black pvd on the hour markers for the white dial.

The C63 Sealander white dials have "top-brushed gunmetal indexes with diamond polished facets and brushed and polished gunmetal hands" to aid in visibility compared to unfinished steel.

Couldn't agree more. If not black, at least a couple of shades darker. In some photos (often bright lighting), the markers appear borderline steel.
I had the white GMT on pre-order, but cancelled because it was niggling away.
Doesn't help that it's exaggerated further by the black base of the GMT hand.

Your black GMT is lovely and is my preference of all 4 GMTs now.
