Agreed. I have found it to be a non-issue personally.
As for the blue GMT, I would echo those who are wanting to see this one in person before passing full judgment.
I thought the initial photos out of Basel indicated more of "navy" blue....perhaps not the best word for it, but basically deeper, darker as compared to the picture that bawlin posted above.
That's probably still not a baby
blue to my eyes, but something about the lighting or reflection in that particular image does make it appear more ....royal. And that would probably be fine if Rolex can ever pull off the red ceramic, and give us the full Pepsi. But with the black....I just don't know.
I do like a little blue in my watches (individually), and also in my collection, generally speaking.
