Is it definitely a C60 rather than a C65?

I did wonder too as the bezel looks more like the narrower C65 than C60.

The bezel looks narrow, the pointer appears solid and there looks like a smaller marker at 1 - like the C65 GMT.

But who knows what they’ve video’d :problem:

Edit:
The CW C65 GMT page states four face options whilst only illustrating three:

But again probably means nothing.

It looks like the C65, with silver markers and hands, rendering it a near hit.

It makes sence being a C65. 90% already there, just change the dial from black to white.
Looking forward to seeing the first images of it.

Same for the C60, just add a gmt hand a tiny bit of text to the white dial diver. Either way I’m excited to see it

It's a C65. I saw it today at WindUp. I'll add photos and a quick WindUp review in a bit. The C65 black and gold was another stunner.

It’s the C65 - I think it’s got explorer 2 polar vibes, definitely on my radar.

Thank you for the photo. So black hands and markers? VERY similar to the recent failed FLE so I guess it's a good thing that fell through. This does indeed give off a Rolex vibe, but far from a direct copy. May have to grab one later on! :D

Thanks for posting the pics. I’m not a fan of the C65 (or any of its variants).......but the white faced version looks really really good

Is that white text on a black background for the date wheel? :thumbdown:

There’s a higher resolution photo of this watch that has been posted on the CW enthusiasts Facebook page. Looks like the hands and markers are the usual polished finish, not blackened. The date wheel is also white text on a black background. Not sure if the ones photographed are pre production models though and whether the date wheel may change.

For me, the combination of white face, silver hands means this isn’t one I’m particularly interested in unfortunately.

It's the first C65 GMT with applied indices but I would've preferred if everything was blackened. Even in that picture it almost does look that way. I also agree the black date looks out of place. It's not bad but blackened features would've made it something special IMO.
