Love the simplicity of the FLE. Great collection.

The photos of that Cibi glass haave had me scouring the internet all day, debating whether I should get myself a set or not... Such an iconic design!

I had to search for a while and finally found them for sale on the Arnolfo di Cambio website and they are indeed very expensive. Personally I'm not sure they improve the taste of any drink.

I got mine from Firebox.com. Very odd to drink from.

This is my little collection of C9s. We have a C9 a C9 FLE, a C9 GMT and a C90.

All in all I really like them all. If I could change anything it would be the lug width to 22mm. With a 20mm strap It makes the case seem a lot bigger than it is. And the C90s wonky digits. The GMT is going back to be repaired as the movement has died, so the pictures were taken before it left. The C90 I am pretty sure now is heading back to. Real pity as I do love it but can't live with it (maybe I should marry it).


Oh and a prize of a thumbs up smiley for anyone that can guess the film by the props used
The C9 FLE looks great. I want one!

Why are you sending the C90 back?

I sent it back as it was an impulse buy though I really like it the numbers were a bit wonky and its a lot to spend when you can't help noticing it each time you look at the dial. If I could get one for at least £100 less than I spent may reconsider

That was the essence of the debate. :)

If they weren't so GD expensive, I'd have gotten 4 without a second thought...
