Poll completed.

Bit of a quandary as I like both the Blue case Pro 600 and the GMT, but let's see how the voting goes.

Looks like that one was missed. Unfortunately, It's not possible to add an option to a poll without losing all the current voting.

I suggest folk who are keen on the word mark embossing mention it in a post, and they can then be manually counted.

"Likes" voted on.

As suggested - work mark embossed please. Anybody else?

I'm not sure the single "like" for "2 tone GMT bezel" covers all options but let's see how it goes.

It has already, recently, been stated that the two tone ceramic bezel will be the grey/charcoal one only.

No probs, thanks Richard :thumbup:

Edit: ‘likes’ voted on. Would also like embossed logo (I appreciate there would be a cost to this). I’d also be interested in Black PVD case with black/blue bezel as shown in original #2, but there is no option for this on the survey.

Sorry I didn't explain myself well. What I meant was will the 2 tone bezel be the only option on the GMT? - 1 of the GMT mock-ups showed an all grey bezel I think. (Obviously we wouldn't want just an all black bezel as that'd be just like a standard C60).

and if it has to be 2 tone do the bezel numbers have to be 2 colours - I think 1 of the mock-ups showed white only bezel numbers.

Was it ever answered whether the bezel will be lumed if the numbers are black and white?

There hasn't been any official response but I've never seen black lume on a bezel before. Hope I'm wrong as the two tone numbers do look great.

I've added my options to the poll, interested in seeing which way this goes.

The answer to the 2 tone bezel number lume question is yes. If black numbers are used they can be lumed. Not certain how that would be done at 3 and 9 though.

The reality is that the black, although it will glow, is not very good to begin with and would severely pale next to the white.
