C63 Sapphire GMT- 1.5 years old; +\- 1 second per day. (This watch was a “special” without COSC certificate and has a SW330-2 movement, I suspect regulated by CW before sale).
More likely, the correctly specified C63 Sapphire GMT COSC LE on which the COSC certificate had been lost and simply sold without it.

^^^ There is, presumably a regular serial number.

Is it ABC-123 format or S21-032 style? :-k. :-k

I'm away on holiday this week with 2 C65 handwinds. I'm keeping both wound.

The blue one is 14 seconds slow after 4 days (might be 5 actually), and the yellow LE just 2 seconds slow.

Which is indicative of it being a Prototype and thus 'Special'.

Have a look at the caseback photos on CW's website. This, plucked at random, is of a C60 Trident Pro 300.

Whilst the movement on your watch will be a Chronometer rated one, as per the spec for the watch, being a Prototype, it will not have been COSC tested and therefore will not have a Certificate.

Hope that makes sense.

Thank you Guy. Learning something new and filling in a blank very welcome.

Love the watch, it certainly feels unique and special.

Got a C60 pro 300 about a month ago. Was 8 seconds fast after 2 weeks, now around 5. Happy with that.

My titanium Elite 1000 doesn’t seem to have gained or lost since I changed to Winter time last Autumn. It’s a brilliant watch and I’m very happy with it. Wear it daily and no issues whatsoever. Timekeeping wise it’s the best watch I’ve ever owned. Have had a few positive remarks made about it. Easy on the wrist and it’s not as obvious as my Rolex Submariner which I rarely wear now. I went to a parents’ school function some years ago and I’d say more than 50% of the dads were wearing Subs or Sea Dwellers. Started wearing my Zenith Rainbow Chronograph as a daily until I bought my Elite 1000.

Fast is better than slow. To correct it you just pull out the crown to hack the movement and restart it when the time catches up. If it's slow you have to advance the minute hand and then synch it to the second again, which takes longer.

In War films they synch their watches instantly. How do they do that? .it must have actually taken a minute or so, and assumed they all had watches with hacking seconds. Did they actually set starting times to the second?
