I think I need to see and feel these before I make my final decision on the range.

Not really a "blob" marker enthusiast so maybe that's preventing me liking these.

Now that’s a good looking watch! Definitely a color way I can get behind! I think they should have led with this.

Man, I might have just ordered that one instead of a blue one and a white Sealander GMT…

Does CW do this often? Release a new line then release new colors right after? I might have to hold fire for a month or so if they release something to make sure I get the one I want

Cancel the order that hasn’t shipped and send the other right back under 60/60 as soon as it arrives. Go ahead and order this one in the meantime. Use the money saved to get a 36mm Sealander Auto when they’re released later in the year.

Problem solved!

I think I still like the blue a lot after reviewing the product pages. If not - I assume CW doesn’t accept returns on engraved pieces?

I think there was a discussion post a short while ago about returns where it was stated that CW will accept a return on an engraved watch. Can somebody else remember and help out?

Or check the CW website as it might state on there under engraving or returns policy.

I didn’t see anything in particular on the site but I’ll search around the forums.

From support page, under FAQs for 60/60 guarantee -

“Does engraving affect my 60|60 Guarantee?
No, except that we will not refund you the engraving charge.”

Couldn‘t resist…pulled the trigger for this one.
Just 10 days after I bought the Black Sealander GMT..
Have to put their website on blacklist…

Looks good, I especially like the colour of the lume against that black.
Keep well,
