Damn! There's nothing for it to order both (and a titanium strap) and see which one I like best.
The free returns are almost encouraging me to do so...

Welcome to the forum ;)
A great watch whatever colour you decide to keep.
I saw them both at the showroom in February and it's very hard to decide which to go for.
Looking forward to hearing which one will stay and see some photos.

P.S: Thanks for liking my Instagram photo of my C60 TI V2 today.

So, I ordered both as I couldn't decide between colours. In the end, it was something else that put me off the blue version. Something pretty obvious in the last picture here...

If there wasn't a technical issue, which may have occurred in transit, with the Blue one, which would you choose?

Thanks for posting the comparison. Aside of the misalignment issue, the photos confirm to me that the black version is better. Good choice.
Enjoy the new watch

I think it would have been the black one anyway. While the blue version initially drew my eye to the model, the black version seems a little classier, a bit more in keeping with a £1500 watch. The blue colour is beautiful, but that ceramic bezel is just more shiny than I'm used to.
@Bahnstormer - I hope the damage didn't happen in transit, as they came together...

Sound decision making.

I'm considering the black/red of the Elite GMT for similar reasons, notwithstanding I already have the blue/orange in my Apex.

If the damage was in transit, it may merely to have served to exacerbate an initial fault, not picked up on QC.

Either way the blue/orange needs to get back to CW to be fixed.

Glad to hear the decision to order both worked out and you've chosen your favourite.

I have found that I love the idea of a brighty coloured watch, have bought a number of them only to then sell them on subsequently, and end up with mainy black dialled watches. It's possibly that the bright colours are just much harder to match to clothes, the work environment or maybe there is some other reason that I always seem to gravitate back towards a black dial.

That last photo... Jesus, it's way out!

Sounds like you you've got it sorted though.

Ohhh that's HARD

I'd personally go for the back/red color combination, however, of you already have a black diver maybe try for the Blue/orange

They're both great

I think the black/red one is more versatile but I have a soft spot for the blue one since blue and orange are the colors of my favorite hockey team.

Too many watches, too little time/ cash. That's my problem...

I think of those, I'd choose the black/ red. A bit more versatile. And the bracelet is a must!
