I must admit I was one of the people moaning about the MK 2 bezel only rotating uni-directional & the mixed dive & GMT markings.
I actually parted company with my MK2 GMT because of this.
I love a GMT, I have 3 of them, CW, Tudor & Panerai.
The Panerai doesn’t have a bezel, but the Tudor does & it moves Bi-directional as does my CW MK3 & I am very happy about it. :D

Having said that, the new C60 GMT is a lovely watch.
I rotated the bezel on my C60 Apex last night.

That was to time a walk with the dogs*, so no water or diving involved. :D

* as part of forward planning to work out how much time I need to leave for walking them at a future date.

I will probably burn in hell because I use my iPhone to time my dog walks. Mind you there’s a few folk that would be happy with that outcome.

While I won’t object to the new bezel, its bidirectionality doesn’t change anything for me. The longer power reserve is definitely a plus. Nice to see the functional updates with the GMT.

So it should have the new movement then?
I have just answered my own question.

I fully wound the watch at 6pm Thursday eve & left it on the table, it stopped at 02.15 Sunday morning.
By my calculations that is 56 hrs & 15 mins, so it appears I have the new movement in my GMT. :D
