Beautiful, IMO. But £200 more than a C65 auto? Is that the price differential in the movement?

^^^ Yep, about that. A quick look at Cousins shows a standard Sellita SW200 @ £195 and the GMT SW330 @ £395.

Wow, I live and learn. Fair enough. I guess CW’s transparency policy really does hold up. Kudos.

My recollection is that it is complex and expensive to produce a two tone ceramic bezel, and none spring to mind other than Rolex latest GMT models. Aluminium of course much easier hence we have got the C65 Pepsi but I can’t see CW doing a ceramic C60 Pepsi. A coke C65 would be a good option I agree.

Yeah, good point Patrick re. the ceramic 2 tone bezel. Slipped my mind that C60s are ceramic :oops:
