Photo request.

Post by dnr4me »

I have two photo request, one I would like to see a C11 on someone with a size 7 wrist or smaller. Also I was wondering, if it is not to personel I would like to see what some of the CW engraving looks like, to see if it is worth the extra $40. Thanks in advance.

I have no C11, but here's an example of the engraving on the back of my C60 trident :

Thanks Tartine, I have ordered the C11 as I am a Aviation fan and love the Altimeter look. But if I buy a second CW watch it will be the C60.

Nobody out there with a C11 and a small wrist? Hope it is not to large for my wrist.

Thanks Soon2b, so I guess you returned it. If you don't mind me asking, did you find another CW watch that fit you better. I have a 7 wrist and my be able to get away with it. But your photo's don't give me great hope. Tough to buy a watch without trying it on.

Its a tricky one I guess, I have spent a lot time looking through the all of the photos on here to determine how each model might look on my wrist, I have also bought and returned one or two.

I like the discontinued C1(40mm)

and my personal favorite C5 (38mm, silver two piece face)

Yea, if I feel the C11 is to large then I think a C5 aviation is in my future.

You know, I have a 6.75 wrist and from the pics, I have to say that personally it looks ok to me. Obviously not seen it in person but I'd happily go with it. Its all a matter of personal preference of course. I wore a Timex Ironman for a couple of years (forgive me) and at 42mm that looked fine.
Hopefully you'll be happy with it and most important, comfortable.

I like the look of the C11 so much in the photos that even if it a little big I may live with it.

I'd be interested in the same photo. I have a 6 3/4" wrist. An email from Chris,ref the same sizing problem,advised me the strap may be too big.
I like too many of these watches,can't make up my mind...

Again 8)

When I got mine I email Wera about the strap she advised as its a rectangular hole it would be best done at CW.
BUT that was her interim solution as the suggested that they were sourcing smaller straps for the C11.

Hope this helps :-)
