I have well and truly caught the bug! they really are beautiful pieces.

I'm now saving up for a Lido C20 and then a C60 Trident GMT. I'm hoping one or the other come up in the July sale and I actually have the funds at that time.

For the time being, I'm so chuffed with the C5. Its exactly what I originally wanted when I started looking for a 'proper' dress watch.

Nice!

BTW my NN C3 GWG has just arrived and, to keep SWMBO happy, I'm going to be selling my mint-condition C20 Lido in the very near future.
I'll be taking photos this weekend, so keep an eye on the CW For Sale section...

Thanks peeps. I am so so chuffed I managed to get it. Only a personal opinion of course, but I'm not at all keen on the new c5 face.
I've just done a little video of it actually... just in case any people new to CW want to see the second hand sweep or the size on the wrist etc. I know a video would have sold it to me so much quicker. I know there is a video thread so will post the link there also.
