When I asked CW about this, they said that the brown and black leather straps shipping with these are the new shorter length straps. 180mm total length vs. 206mm for the normal ones. I didn’t ask about the colored straps.

^^^ Well -

Bracelet + camel oak + yellow + blue + red + green, giving six looks for each watch.

24 combinations, assuming that these are the only straps.

No wait, extra options by mixing the colour of strap, between the 6 and 12 sides….. :)

Well done - think the red surprised me most in terms of colour/tone.

The complete set with matching numbers….impressive! That calls for a dedicated 4-watch watch box just for the LEs.

I can’t do better than echo that. Well done indeed, Paul, and I do hope you both enjoy them to the full. :thumbup:

I have it stuck in my head that the hands (and indices?) on the white dial are gun metal, but I can’t find that referenced anywhere on the CW website. Am I making this up? Did perhaps Mike France mention this during to forum sneak peak.
The Sealander GMT calls out gun metal specifically in the specs. I didn't see it in the 39mm. Just says top-brushed indexes. I'm not sure why there would be any difference.
There shouldn't be, but I'm still looking for confirmation. If they indeed aren't gun metal, I think it's a deal breaker for me.

That looks fantastic on the bracelet. Actually think I prefer it without the colour accents of the 39 version

Cheers
If you haven't already got your green version then I think you will be very pleased. My pictures have not captured it at all well but it is a really nice shade and a bit more sombre that the others
