Can’t hold a candle to the Black/White C60 Trident GMT, especially the date window.
Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night. Be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels - Frank Sinatra

I would have preferred the bezel in stainless rather than black.
Just saying.
Their still may be that option?🤞

It appears to be a mock-up. If you zoom in on the indexes, there appears to be cut-outs around them.

It is more noticeable at the five o'clock index. The cut-out edge isn't quite parallel to it.

There also appears to be an extra layer around the date window.

Actually, the cut outs are all like that on the C65 GMT dials. The date looks the same to me. It's probably the box crystal distortion you're seeing.

The handset does appear black here in this lighting... and CW stated that it’s a limited edition :thumbdown:

I'm going to be honest here and say it looks incredibly dull. Nothing to interest me whatsoever

Ohh, and it’s called the C65 Anthropocene :-k

Makes you wonder what they’re smoking in the CW marketing dept. Possibly they’re expecting them to end up in landfill... which will make it a very long-lived limited edition :shock:

The picture reminds me of the 2013 C10 FLE albeit with black, remodelled hands. The
Will be interesting to see if the hands are more boldthan the FLE

The picture Guy posted shows the hand/indices being steel. They're brighter than the GMT arm. The black is just shadows.

I think the difficulty is that the light at the WindUp is very bright and harsh. As a result it can easily play tricks with steel and reflections.

Perhaps we need input from Mark (@albionphoto) who has actually seen the watch in the flesh.

It’s safe to say it would be a huge surprise if it’s not... :)

I look forward to seeing or hearing the explanation behind that one.
