Thanks for showing a multiple side by side of case sizes nicely :thumbup:

To my eyes the C63 GMT still does look relatively on the smaller side at a swift glance ... but the slim bezel certainly helps with the overall perception
Its one of those borderline conundrums for me still and i'm slightly veering towards a 41 mm variant again :D

Its only Pre-order end October if you want it on a bracelet.

All other variants (bar one) i.e. on a strap, are Pre-order early July. Only a 4 - 5 week wait.

Yeah I know, but I’d only want it on a bracelet, so I’ll stand my ground: October? No thanks! :D

I’ll start to feel excited if I hear something official with the words blue, Elite and bracelet.

Still lots of comments regarding the 39mm case size and much talk of case vs dial size, from those who are unsure whether to go ahead with a C63. I have tended to gravitate towards the 41-43 range of late, even though I reckon my 7"/18cm wrist size is pretty much a medium one. I shared everyone's worries, but went ahead. All I can say is I'm so pleased I did. Yes, out of the box it feels a little smaller than 40+ mm stuff, but once on the wrist you soon forget. It wears beautifully, and I think CW have obviously given the proportions a LOT of thought because the watch as a whole is wonderful. I'm not sure whether the concept translates across multiple sizes and that's why they've worked hard on getting one watch for that does everything for as many as possible. I think that unless you've got particularly large (or tiny) wrists then my advice is give it a try.

Yes. At the moment. But come October it might be a different story.

+1
The point should be well taken that size and design are inextricable. Any given design does not necessarily scale.

I too am a little weary of so much splitting hairs over 39 vs 40 vs 41mm etc when the watch in reality will make its own (in the C63's case formidable) impression.

I’ve been wearing my C63 auto continuously for a month now. No plan to do this - I’ve just found no cause to switch to anything else. It’s the white dial bracelet watch I’ve been searching for from the start, and it can definitely go everywhere with me and do everything. For me, it was time for CW to see further than the C60 and C65 ranges they seemed to be concentrating on. Dive watches aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. Bravo CW- My C63 auto white is a winner!

That looks great Lindsey. The gunmetal is a subtle change from black or silvered finishes.

Do you think you would have preferred, say 36mm, given the choice?

No. After a month on the wrist I’m really happy with the size. I’d say it has ‘presence’ on my 6.25” wrist but I love that, and is in no way (dial, L-L or height) too big by any stretch :thumbup:
