GMT hand far too dominant for my taste

I was thinking exactly the same. A smaller GMT hand wouldn't hurt this at all.

The whole watch comes over as a total mishmash to me.

That's a decent looking watch in my book. Styling cues from the Explorer 1655?
I'd have preferred a thinner GMT hand and was hoping for a blue dial, but can't please all.

I wonder why CW hasn't added any 24 hour numerals to the dial. The rotating 24-hr bezel would have allowed the tracking of a 3rd timezone.

like it apart from the H/M hands and the walmart logo and logo placement.

I am loving it!
The overall look is stunning and the GMT hand is perfect for me, bold and striking with an aviation feel (also wont need my reading glasses to see it :thumbup: )

I like it. I imagine I'd like it even more with regular lume, rather than vintage lume.

Not sure about the GMT hand but the fact that you can now get the bracelet for the c65 diver is absolutely superb.

I will now almost certainly buy this. I was a bit iffy before the bracelet. Well done CW!

I love it, and had there been a blue dial my cart would have an addition. Not wanting a black one as I have the C60 GMT in black dial. Maybe see if a blue one comes out at some point.

So close, but for me the GMT hand utterly ruins the vintage look. Everything else is great. What a shame.
I'll never buy another watch. Not until the next one.

I just can't get past the GMT hand, which looks incongruent to the rest of the watch. I'd also rather that there was regular lume, but I guess that may come in the future.

Otherwise, it's a very nice watch. But not for me in its current form.
