It came up heads, it was the Elite, I felt a pang of regret, I’ve bought the GMT! In the end I think it came down to the balance of black/white on the GMT which sat better to my eye than the Elite (and if I don’t like it in person I can always get the Elite on pre-order in the Black Friday sale, thanks to those who suggested that!)
It’s a nice watch you’ve bought. I have the same watch, albeit with a unidirectional bezel and a lower power reserve and I’m very happy with it.

I have the 40mm version and it’s knocking on 14mm thick, so fairly chunky on my 6.5 inch wrist, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I’ll be more happy with it when it returns from CW Towers with its misaligned bezel fixed.

Nice one. I think your decision has been made based on something that sits very well with you and is personal to you - none of us will have the same response to colour balance as you do. I think that bodes well for bonding well!

I know I’m late to the quick topic but I, too, opted for the GMT over the Elite when I took the leap earlier this year. The GMT hand is more useful to me than the day. I hope you’re happy with it when it arrives.

I ended up buying both the C60 Pro 600 and the GMT version in 42mm to be sure I made the right decision. The Pro 600 will be heading back to CW as I only needed to open the box to know the GMT was the right call. Bracelet resized and it’s a winner!

You really couldn’t go wrong either way. Perfect outcome, looks great!

Nice watch. I’m a bit biased as I have the 40mm version of this watch.

It has been sickly and has been at CW Towers for 2 months getting the bezel alignment corrected. Just had an email to say the warranty work is complete and it will be posted out to me shortly.

Certainly makes me wish I had bought one. Maybe the January sale....

I picked up the same but discontinued 40mm model in the last July sale for £633 (40% discount), so you never know.

The Black Friday code was extended in availability for another 24 hours so there may still be time!
