Excellent photos, but wherever did you get the idea that we like them. :lol:

Enjoy!

Very nicely depicted / captured and this model is a slow grower on me - still those screw heads jar a bit, but it is a very cohesive look

I do not have OCD, but I do find the dial so striking that the screws really go unnoticed. :)

Unfortunately my OCD side must be coming out because the screw heads have been bothering me. BUT I'm also on the same wavelength as Kip the striking nature of the face tends to overrule everything else.

I really think that the screws would look somehow "false" if they all lined up perfectly.
It's a lovely watch (and nice photos) - I'm waiting for the mid-size version.

Did it come with the deployment buckle standard? I got my C11 Chrono last week, and it was the standard buckle strap ............. I'd much rather have the deployment. The strap was so big I actually ordered a new strap and deployment for it.

Excellent photos! :clap:
The only thing that bothers me about the screw-heads (from Day 1) is that they're there at all! :lol:

Unless something has changed, strap is equiped with a standard tang buckle. I also changed mine over to a deployant as I much prefer them.

No, it arrived on the standard brown strap but I prefer the deployment type buckles as well so whilst looking round the site I spotted this.

PILOT - BLACK/STEEL/NO RIVET WHITE-22MM
C8SXK3

And thought at £40 I'd take a punt on it.

I think it works quite nicely with the contrast white stitching.

I'd go further - the deployment is superior for comfort and minimises strap wear, whilst the white stitch really works well - better than the std c11 item IMHO

I agree, looks like it came straight from CW with that strap ..................... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, maybe they need to make a change :)

Just wondering what size wrist you have, was thinking of ordering the same watch/strap combo but I am worried that it will be to large for my wrist. Thanks.
