Looks great in blue. I do like a blue watch.

For me too thick at 16mm although decent layout and use of colours. Nice to see a red GMT hand.

It'd be interesting to see a white dialled version using the red accents.

That is a very purposeful looking dive/travel watch. Very much like the black/red.

Re. thickness, I assume it is just the exhibition caseback that gives this the additional height over the standard GMT?
If so, it'd be a decent idea to give people the option of steel/glass when purchasing to shave those mm off.

Yup.

With the 1,000m WR I expect the display case back will be several millimetres thick.

For comparison, the C60 Elite is 15.4mm thick compared to 16.0mm for the GMT version i.e. plus 0.6mm for the GMT movement.

Seems spot on to me.

The bezel would have been better without the 5, 10, 15. The smaller font just makes them look odd (to me anyway).

I like these a lot - both the blue and even more so the black. Thickness not a problem.

Probably the closest my CW trigger finger has come for a while, although regrettably the last thing my collection needs is a GMT diver.

These will fly off the shelves.

All things are relative of course, as Albert used to say.

But a titanium, 1000m, GMT diver with a proven Swiss movement and a very good fit and finish, and a five year warranty? £1495-£1715 looks like incredible value to me and the established 'fan boy' brands (I'll admit to being one of those!) would be charging two or three times that amount.

I must say I do like this a great deal. It has a bit of deep sea Rolex about it with the inner markings. Tough choice though between this and a used pelagos (two line) though.

What's your view Guy? Would you prefer to shave the thickness off, or prefer the glass back?

Personally, given the decoration (or lack of), I'd go with a standard caseback.

My Planet Ocean GMT is 17.25mm thick also with an exhibition casebook, so CW have done a nice job keeping the thickness to 16mm
