I’m keen to see some pictures of the white dial auto with the hybrid or tide strap (unless these ones are pre-order only) as think these will look and wear slightly smaller IMO
Fully agree. Good design is where it all starts. Indices, hand, brushing and materials all play together really well providing great legibility indoors and outdoors. Bracelet had 1/2 links as well so the C63 is all about functionality - doing what it is designed to do really well.

I agree! It's so crisp. They could have squeezed a 'sealander' on there without disrupting too much. And as you say, the other aspects of the watch - the indices, the orange highlights, the brushed case, all add together to create a good looking whole. The whole dial pops!

A blue Elite would interest me.

Thanks! And to those who admired my pics, all I can say is i don't think it's possible to take a bad pic of this watch!

Crisp is an overused word, especially by Gary Lineker and Kevin McCloud, but I think it is the word to describe the white C63. Congrats!

Me too! I’d love to see it in the Deep Blue of the C65 Compressor.

The white rolex Op39 was very well regarded and many including myself were very surprised when they dropped that model.
Well cw seems to have picked up that mantle very nicely
Cheers now, Paul

New here, but CW enthusiast for a while. Just picked up a C63 GMT black dial, cant wait to get it around the wrist. My C60 Lympstone gets the most wrist time these days, however this may be about to change.

The only unknown is the mvt regulation. Im used to COSC or similar (whether my C60 Lympstone, Tudor Pelagos, etc.) and reaaally value those tiny seconds off per day, and im hoping this one will not disappoint. Perhaps I'll have to get it to a watchmaker.

Anyhow, cannot wait for delivery.
