I don't have a GMT watch, not really got the need for one, but I nearly bought a blue Mk3 Trident in 38mm, just to be different to my normal 42mm or more, when they were first launched.

A 40mm is well on the cards, particularly if it has a white dial with charcoal / grey aluminium bezel. :wink:

40mm is the sweet spot for me, and my nearly 8 in wrist. My 44mm C8 PR is huge, but I'm able to pull it off mainly because of the black case and hand winding, which helps with the overall height. 43 mm ACAN is a beast, but IMHO a dive watch, if used for its intended purpose should be on the large size. 41 mm Datejust is "just" about perfect. 40mm Oris and 40mm Damasko really are so unobtrusive, and really do slip under the cuff of a shirt sleeve, or more importantly a jacket. Seems as I age this is a feature I give more importance to. So in a nutshell, the 40mm GMT would be something I would be very much interested in. Hopefully they are able to keep the the height in check.

So...back to the watch itself...who’s interested in a 40mm GMT in the general sense of the word?
In theory yes as I want a GMT preferably blue dialled and also because I found the 43mm Mk2 Tridents too big so my Tridents have been 38mm. But the case is different now on the MK3 so I have no idea until I'm able to compare the 2 sizes (40mm and 42mm) on my wrist.

Plus I need to see if the new design can get me past the 9o'clock logo as I do like the full GMT and lumed bezel.

The 40mm GMT is 13.65mm v 12.95mm for the non-GMT, so the increase in size is negligible.

I must admit that I was a bit anti for quite a while but the C65 diver just blew me away and I got used to it.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Same here, the C65 was the first model I bought with new logo and it's grown on me so much that I prefer it now to the previous logo versions.

Back to GMT talk, if the FLE #8 doesn't pan out i'd seriously consider a 40mm white dial GMT

I'd like a white-dial Pepsi C65 GMT. That'd be fun to wear. :D
