I've just had a quick look and some of the topics are quite funny if you say them as Frankie Howerd.

"Taking apart transmission, my push behind"

"Allis Chalmers - Any good?"

"Lawn Boy dura force surge"

"Thanks for T-Man"

Oooh! No missus! Titter ye not!

Thanks for that....it was better than the joke of the day. :lol:

Well - I'm (sort of) glad I don't like the GMT as produced as much as the early mock ups. Having voted for the GMT as a forum special as well there was a danger that I would have to buy two GMTs this year :shock:

Well I do, I have no use for a diver really other than for robustness but with GMT the extra dial becomes useful and with 2 time zones great. When I'm travelling I like to have one for where I've been one for where I'm going and one for where I am during a layover.

I like how the 15 minute part of the bezel is gone but the non numbers need a dot or something for me.

Well, I want to like the GMT. Putting that into context I never wanted one because I couldn't see "the need"** because I can cope with holding two time zones in my head on those occasions that I need to do so. Now that I have family in America I know that they re nine hours behind but I don't need that on my wrist all the time, right?

** "the need": whenever did need rather than desire/lust drive our watch buying habits?

So I tried a Steiny GMT and it was a fine watch but I flipped it and my rationalisation was that I didn't bond with the overall style of the watch and it was similar in some respects to the C65. Pepsi bezels leave me cold.

I know where I stand with the C60 line so maybe dropping a GMT complication into a watch I know that I like sounds like it has a greater chance of success. Wait a minute, that's pushing me back towards the pre-Mk3 (Mk3 or MkIII?) models: oh heck!
C60 MKI COSC black, MKI black GMT,
C60 300 white,
C60 MKII Day Date LE, GMT White, LE SH21 x2, ACAN, Bronze Ombre LE,
C60 MKIII Ombre COSC, Elite 1000 GMT,
C6 Kingfisher x4,
C60 K'fisher
C600 Tritech x 3,
C65 Anthropocene. Blue h/w,

LOL. This thread was nearly 10 years old and referring to the FIRST GMT.
