Apologies if I've missed it amongst all these pages but has anybody tried a white dial C63 on a blue or blue/orange strap?

The mock-up of the C63 white dial with blue bezel on the CWE thread has grabbed my attention and in my eyes has made the non-GMT Sealander look a little bland (admittedly without seeing 1 in real life which could alter my opinion).

Another white GMT, this time on a Hirsch Robby strap. I'm saving the bracelet for now! :)

Really impressive watch in a great size (7.25" wrists). The winding on this new movement is unbelievably smooth.

Corrr, that looks absolutely fantastic Steve. Really like the way the curve of the strap follows the angle of the lugs.

I'm seriously starting to think about consolidating my SC and 9F GS into a black GMT.
Could be seen as a backwards step, but I think they've got the GMT spot on. Well, if it was 38mm ... :wink:

Mixed emotions today: bad news, frustrating news, and good news.

Hit a deer on my way to the gym this morning, all okay except for the deer and my bank account.

On the phone with local cable company for 85 minutes, no resolution to problem, they said they will call back in 24 to 48 hours.

CW emailed me to notified me that my back ordered (6 wks) C63 has shipped!

This converts to about US$ 795 and hoped it would go through customs without any import charges. And it did so saved $25 from the US price and no $75 duty/DLH fee charge. So saved about $100 total.

But the GPB vs USD is increasing almost daily so soon this may not work anymore for watches with a value close to $800. Some credit card companies charge foreign transaction fees so these savings in ordering in GBP may be less as well.
Did you have to end up paying any import fees or no? I'm tempted to try this myself since it looks like it would still convert to under the threshold. Thanks!

hunter_jones, I didn't have to pay any import fees at all. So definitely worth to try to save some money. It converts to about $782 now so should work .

Thanks to you, i just placed my order. It says it's backordered until early July, so let's hope the conversion rate stays in my favor.

Would you mind posting more pictures, please? Considering the white GMT on rubber combo and cant find any real life pictures on the net, thanks

I'm very impressed with the quality, and it looks so much better in flesh than through a photo, such a pretty watch

It does seem bit small as I'm a good 7.5inch wrist (and not wishing to stoke the size debate) but as a daily wearer I think that's no bad thing

I'll be ordering alternative straps this evening!

After a few years of not owning a CW, I am about to be in possession of one again as I've just got the despatch notification of my white dial Sealander as above ^^ with the black/white tide strap :D

In my opinion all the model/colour variations in the Sealander model range look fantasic, CW have excelled with this collection :clap:

Now just got to wait for end of Oct for a bracelet :(

It arrived today, so far I'm very happy :D . I usually wear watches on bracelet, but seeing as the C63 bracelet isn't available until October, I'm going to have to experiment, and the Sealander does seem like its going to be very versatile regarding straps :)

These are my two favorite options at the moment:

Settled on this for the time being:
