I own a white dial MK2 C60 with mirrored finishing to the hands and indices - under some lights it is hard to read, but small movement of the wrist is all that's needed to create contrast.

I did own a white dial C63 auto, and while I sold it on, the legibility was markedly better thanks to the gunmetal finishing.

Makes perfect sense. Tbh, I've found the comments in this thread about legibility being similar to the C60 a bit confusing.

agreed - it's a totally different experience on the wrist

I wish they had anodised hands because they would be so much easier to read, my dad is partially sighted and has an explorer 2 for this very reason. He would love a cw gmt as well but he cannot seethe hands easily.
