Vive le difference!

I think CW knew exactly what they were doing.

They don't always get it right for me but they did with the Ombre.

It will be interesting to see a patinated bronze case against the black bezel. I'm not convinced that combo will work so well, but only time will tell.

CW has a patinated version and has pictures on the site.

More watches without the date window!
My eyes are going and I can look at the date on my phone! :lol:

Can just make out the date on my sub-date. :D

Can we have a mock up of the C65 Pepsi GMT? Red GMT hand, muted colour bezel aha Tudor GMT. White face and black face?

Still waiting for an oblong rectangular piece a la Cartier, but with sportier styling.

^^Thanks for doing the C65 GMT mock-up. I like the idea of the blue/red bezel but I've never been attracted to the black dial with split blue and red bezel from whichever brand - that's purely personal taste.
Maybe a white or silver dial would look better to me (leaving the name at 9 in white so it disappears!)

That’s nice. I’d be more likely to buy that than the silver bezel version.

One of the reasons that I like it so much, is that the colours, while bright, don’t dominate due to the narrow bezel. It “lifts” it without being the entire centrepiece.

^I like that. Always felt the GMT hand needs to be red. Orange is an acceptable alternative. Blue looks wrong, but I can’t explain why exactly - maybe it’s the shade of pale blue used on the C60 Bronze that doesn’t work for me. A darker blue might be better but may blend in too much on a black dial.
