I keep looking at this and like it quite a bit, but am a little concerned that it will wear large with the big open face and thin bezel. I might get one to check out and send it back if I don't like it. I'm really looking forward to the 40mm Trident after all.

Especially the blue dial. :clap:

I think it's really nice as is the explorer ii steel bezel version. Personally I think the case design wipes the floor with the standard trident and the reduced WR matters not a jot. I could honestly see me owning one of these.
Explorer II Steel Bezel? Who makes this model please, sounds interesting?

I saw the blue in Edinburgh and I thought it looked great. It’s a little bit tempting. :lol:

Just saw this on CW’s Instagram feed. I want to know about that watch strap!

Ohhhhh I've been hoping so hard they could make a pepsi bezel with a WHITE dial.... This would have been a no brainer.

As I already have a Tudor GMT Pepsi, I think I'm unlikely to be a buyer for the GMT. If I were to plump for one, I think the black dial pepsi would be my choice. I tend to agree with Misterchrono that a white dial would have been a good option too, maybe one of those will follow?

Overall I think I'm still going to wait for the mk3 Trident for my next CW buy.

If you are thinking of buying the GMT, remember the £100 off voucher is still valid on any purchase over £500 (enter 100SPRING19 in the "promo code" box).

When I saw this and the other C65s at the CW showroom last month I thought that they all wore smaller than their size. I don't know if that was because I was comparing against a 42mm Omega Moonwatch but that has a thin bezel.

I am so glad I didn’t pull the trigger on a normal C65 GMT with the black face and khaki webbing strap with the 15% discount last week as I love both the blue dial on the camel strap and the Pepsi bezel on the camel strap.

Good thing the £100 offer is still on - going to be hard to resist.

I like it, but I was really hoping the twin flags would be applied to fill that space. I think I need to see it in real life to see if I can get past it.

I'm thinking maybe a first trip to CW Towers is due.
