Yeah I'm not sure what the official shade of green Khaki is but the strap is very pale , almost washed out .
The wife's just come home and had a look and she absolutely loves it and thinks it's even better looking than the C65 Vintage Diver on Camel that she bought me for Christmas .

Might try and get some better outside shots tomorrow.

Thought I'd play around with strap combos and I think it just goes to show how versatile the C65 range is . The Vintage Diver really works on the webbing strap which I really wasn't expecting .

Sorry again for the orientation of the pictures . Im using a phone instead of a laptop and obviously it makes correcting this above my skill level .

Both combinations look great, I just wish they were available in their shorter (XS) sizes.

Agreed :thumbup:
So decided to have a play too albeit with my GMT and with the straps I have.
Up until now it's been on a bracelet

Definitely proves it a very versatile watch . I was intending at some point to buy a bracelet for it but this is now my least favourite option , i will probably buy a spare webbing strap while they are still available .
I have to say over the years I've had a dozen or more CW watches and this C65 GMT on the webbing is by far my favourite.
Glad my hunch on ordering the unfashionable option has really paid off .

So have been on the hunt for a Khaki strap and came up with this, which pretty much matches the vintage lume indices and hands :D
