I think the colours work and I am a bit of a fan of it. is it going to be £900? I wish the logo at the top was a bit more visible....

Presumably this is a screenshot from a video.

Clearly not showing it in the best light for definition and clarity.

I'll reserve judgement on it until better pictures and a full description are available; tomorrow (due release date).

I find the bezel confusing. Some cities have lines extending out to the right, some don't. Are they DST indicators?

It's busy and not for me, but there is something in the look that i like. Would be interesting to see how the complication works. From the image alone i can't see anything other than a GMT with a fancy, manually moved bezel

Like Guy, I will withhold judgment until I see something official.

I prefer a world timer to have a rotating 24 hour disc so All countries times can be seen at a glance. This is just a straight forward GMT to me. Disappointed...

It looks decent and the dial certainly appears smaller than the rest of the range which is a positive for me, but they've also increased the bezel diameter :problem:

Don't know whether it's a typo, but this one claims to have a screw-down crown.

I really wanted to like it from the teaser, but it just doesn't grab me. The yellow just isn't pulling me in. Maybe the strap needs some yellow?

And of course, like I whinge on every CW world-timer, I'd rather see Chicago than Mexico being Chicago-based. I know that is me just rooting for my adopted home-town, but with our financial markets and O'Hare I think a case can be made for it. Girard-Perregaux and Bremont use Chicago, but it is a huge jump to $6000+ USD for Bremont's ALT1-WT versus the CW 65! I'm thrifty at the end of the day! Maybe some watch will get me beyond that quirk, but this one isn't it.

41mm size is interesting.

Not my choice to purchase but looks best on solid black hybrid or camel straps IMO

Case is the same 41mm as other C65 Trident Diver watches, Lance.

The interesting bit is that the bezel is oversized at 42mm (rather like the C65 Dartmouth). Gives a bit more space for the names of the Cities.

As the screw down crown is mentioned in both the description and the features, I'm inclined to believe it is not a typo.

From the pictures on the CW website, the city names near the outer edge of the bezel appear to be etched but the city names near the inner edge appear to be embossed. That's a very nice feature. I like that the back case has a DLC finish. It's a nice contrast to the case. I do like the choice of indexes; very T3.

That's great then as it shows they're listening/learning.

It's one of only a few criticisms I've read and agreed with regarding the C65 range.
The crown is big, protrudes quite a bit and is more susceptible to being knocked or accidently pulled out (speaking from experience), so this change would eliminate that.

Wonder if the rest of the range will follow suit?
