I think having the gmt in two colours- the exact same watch but with different dials would be too much for me. But at the relatively low price they’re at having a gmt and an auto in different colours would be fine by me I think.

People have multiple speedmasters/subs from various eras and I’ve never understood that -but I’m not a collector in that way.

I may be letting mine go next week once the Tribus comes (mods- not sure if that comment is allowed by forum rules so apologies if not👍🏼)

Ah the days when multiple forumites were doing all they could to get all the different shades of C60 Kingfisher like Clach! Those were heady times. Absolutely no shame in getting all the colors of the rainbow, no matter the model!

I own 2 C6's (black and yellow dial) and 2 C60's (white dial / red bezel and a bronze). Why not but a green 3-hander to compliment your white GMT? You can justify it as they aren't the same watch.

I’ve done it, and some are keepers while others will be culled so that the best color wins. In addition to the C9s, I also have two C60 GMTs, one blue/blue and the other black/black. One of those will likely go; the C9 GMTs are definitely staying.

Trying really hard to imagine what those might be. :lol:

Looking at those two C9 Harrisons, they were lovely watches and would undoubtedly have proved very attractive to me had they been in a smaller case, say 40 mm.
