Incoming! C63 GMT on ocean tide strap

Post by 5oclockhero »

Really looking forwards to this...
Had been looking at the new C63 range both the Auto and GMT since the day of the launch. My largely unworn Glycine airman 24 sold for a decent price on eBay so...
I'd been trying to decide if 39mm was big enough for my 7" wrist as the smallest I currently own is 41mm... I decided having read everyone's thoughts and comments about the C63 size to take the plunge, despite initially thinking I'd maybe wait (forever possibly?) for a green auto, I decided it had to be the GMT. I've got a white C60 so black for this one, and I'm a strap junkie all day every day but which strap? I went for the orange stripe ocean tide (a Hirsch performance gold brown leather/ rubber is also on order!). I ordered yesterday after reading that the bracelets had all sold out, I thought I better get my skates on as I don't want to wait until October if they sell out of everything ! DPD are bringing it all the way to the South West tomorrow.... there's been almost no pics of black GMT's on straps here since launch so that will change before the weekend !!

Congratulations :clap:
Look forward to seeing the pics :D

If think that you'll find that it will wear very similar to, may be slightly smaller than, your SC.

I’m excited to see pics. I’m really impressed by the look of the Tide straps and have been tempted to by one. Just to clarify - they’re two piece straps correct, not a pass through like a NATO?

Yes I pretty certain its a two piece with the usual CW quick release spring bars. I think these two new colourways (one white stripe version and my choice of orange stripe) were designed for the new C63 range, but of course they will fit any 20mm lugs. I've not tried the ocean tide nylon straps although I have several NATO styles, so I'll post up pics in the next couple of days and let you know if the quality is up to usual CW strap high standards. I reckon it will be.

Its arrived and its superb! The strap is lovely... double thickness and beautifully woven. Quite stiff but feels study and strong and a great match for the watch. The sizing is great on my 7" / 18cm wrist. Really pleased....

I've included a pic with my SC for comparison
