    Great choice! I bought the same one about a year ago. Built like a tank

    Hello!

    I'm another owner of the lovely Colt GMT and been having it since late 2008. I'll be extra careful using it as a beater if I were u.. mine just came back after a month stay at the service centre - had to replace the crown and midcase after a drop onto the floor :(

    Thanks guys! It's clear to me after having the watch in my hands that this is no beater. While the watch feels very robust, it's far too refined for beater treatment and I'll need something else for that.

    The crystal on this watch is absolutely invisible, the most magically disappearing crystal I've ever seen on a watch. It's not my first double AR crystal but they must have a special formula.

    I just picked this off the Bay, received it this week. Great Watch. Not planning to use it for a Beater though. I have other watches for that.
