C60 Mk 1 or 2 GMT: was a white dial version available?

Post by tikkathree » Tue Apr 30, 2019 3:02 pm

Itch scratching time here.
I'd like another mk1 or 2 C60 in white dial and preferably black bezel and I'm wondering; was there a GMT version in these colours or was the GMT a black dial only affair?

There were definitely white dial versions of mk2 including iirc green and red bezel options.

Funny how things go. I bought that in the logo change sale (big % off) Didn't gel with the 38mm so offered it back here for the same price. No takers, so made a profit on ebay with it. I loved the look, just prefer the bigger size. I still haven't got a GMT!

I have both 43 and 38mm White/red GMT + 38mm non GMT. My son has 43mm non GMT, and 38mm white/green non GMT. All just lovely.

That's fantastic, nicer in my opinion than the new MK3 by some distance.
Really prefer the white face.

It just makes you think and look back wondering why you didn't buy one.

Here’s my white dial GMT for you on its rubber strap. I thought that the MK3 would have a white dial option and that it would address the only minor issue that they have, which is legibility sometimes. This one is going nowhere.

Good man, keep it. I've only sold one watch in 40 years.

Thanks guys. Selling my white C60 (non-GMT) is one of those "flip too soon" decisions but sometimes the only way you know for sure is to just do it.

Yep. I own the white dial, black bezel non-GMT and I like it a lot. I wondered if they might do white dials on the mk3, but I suppose they discontinued them for a reason, way back when. The execution wasn't perfect but had its appeal.

Hopefully a white dial will come in the future. I love my blue ACAN, but hope the blue hasn't completely replaced the white. This new series in white with black bezel would be stunning. So classy, it always works with where ever you might be going or wearing. Although they do have white in the dress line.

I agree that the white dial makes for a snappy dress watch. There are times, probably in the better light of summer, when I fancy a white dial which is lower in value than either of this item which I'm lucky enough to enjoy and as I don't currently own a GMT it would tick two boxes.
