If I ordered one color and didn't like it do you think they can exchange it to the other color? 8)

I've just had a blue elite and it's not as blue in the flesh as it looks in pictures.

Definitely not a bright blue which is what I was expecting. Maybe a little to subtle for me and it's never good to keep a watch if it doesn't get you excited when you first receive it so there's a good chance it may go back.

As I already have a blue GMT, it’s the black & red one for me.

Titanium is simply the icing on the cake for me; all else being equal I would usually go titanium in most cases. The C60 has a full titanium bracelet, unlike many titanium watches which simply come on rubber etc. The bracelet is the “all else being equal” gotcha in this in this instance... :)

It’s the orange with the blue I don’t like. Does that color combination have some history with watches, or is that just CW’s thing right now? I’ll take the black/red any day, all day.

When I ordered my black Elite a few months ago, CW sent the blue to me in error. The colours are nice but too glossy for my liking. I rang CW and made arrangements for the correct watch to be sent to me. I wasn't able to compare the two colours side by side, but when the black arrived it was the better of the two colours for me.

If the black and red accents had been glossy it may have been a different story for me - but I think CW did a good job with the two colour schemes as it sets them apart, the blue is more eye-catching but the black is a little more formal. However the red hybrid strap does bring a lot of life to the black watch and does make it more eye-catching. I find myself changing between the black and black/red hybrid strap depending on where I will be wearing my C60 Elite.

. . . . and CW's Titanium bracelet works pretty well on one of their steel case pieces.
