The more I look at it, the more I like it. It's definitely a consideration. For me, the blue slightly edges the black model.

Both very nice, the business and for what you're getting here, very competitive pricing.

It is on the tall side, however a very good looking watch in either colour and undoubted vfm even at the 4 figure price.

Hmmmmm, it’s another ‘miss’ for me. Having heartily congratulated CW for the fabulous Anthropocene, Abyss and Elite, this plus the entire military range and C65 world timer leave me cold

Well I like the black dialed one. It's the red text and red GMT hand that are winning me over. Is this enough to get over my dislike of the hour hand? Probably but I'll need the financial gods to align before I can buy one in the next few months.

I do like it, it's unusual and different.
I'm not in the market for something like this but I see it's appeal and figure it will sell well.

One technical and valuable point I realised last night, when I was able to take a closer, more careful look at the details;-

It is a Chronometer with the SW330 being COSC specification.

I like it, but would have preferred a 24 hour bezel. That would have kept the dial cleaner.

This was pretty much my thought, too. I think the blue/orange version is extremely attractive, but the overall balance between bezel and dial doesn’t feel quite right to me; too much of the one, not quite enough of the other. I can see the need for the dive bezel as it is being marketed as a 1000 meter dive watch.

I have actually been questioning whether I need a GMT watch when I go abroad anyway. Actually just knowing the local time seems more than sufficient on practically every occasion.

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.

Fondly remembering the days when going abroad was an option...

But yes, agree with all of that. Other then that I still want a GMT :-)

I like the look of GMT watches.

I like the use of internal markings for the 24hr indicators.

I like most aspects of the design language of this one.

No interest in buying one though.

Not convinced they will sell very well in the current climate.
