This. But stick it in the blue case and give it the blue bezel. Let’s do something interesting and original when we have the chance.

Not just you Chris. That's the way I see it too.

Comparison is the blue case version with plain dial, black bezel and black edge of bezel.

What we need to do is combine the two with;-

Blue case
Blue transparent dial with twin flag design
Blue edge of bezel
Black ceramic bezel insert

Anyone up to a Photoshop of this?

So, something like this, Steve? The "C60 Blue Everything"! :)

Thanks Steve.

Wondering if the 'Blue Everything' is a touch too much and we should have a black bezel.

Alternatively, how about a Blue Everything with some orange highlights (like an Elite 1000 or Apex).

Not forgetting a display case back is feasible.

Thanks, Steve, I like the Blue Everything! A little orange highlight maybe, but not too much.

I think that depends on which size is chosen. The display back offered for the GMT FLE was only available because the tooling had been already done for the Apex. I suspect if a trident of a different size is chosen, then a display back may be cost prohibitive.

As there is already orange highlights within the range maybe yellow would look good against the blue? Blue case, blue smoked dial, black bezel with blue edge. All with Yellow highlights. Wish I could do photoshop. Anyone wanna give me a crash course? :D

Here's the C60 Blue Everything except with a black bezel insert. Let's call it the C60 Midnight. :)

If you want yellow or orange highlights, tell me exactly which bits to turn yellow or orange.
