Thought I would offer a bit of a follow up on my C65 Aquitaine.

Having now had this wonderful watch for 6 weeks and worn it almost exclusively, I am happy to report that the watch is near flawless. It hasn't stopped when left for a day so I presume that the power reserve is working correctly. The bracelet is the only part that shows that the watch has been worn with a few minor scratches and swirlies as one would expect. Being a brushed bracelet these are easily sorted.

It has taken a couple of knocks but the sapphire bezel and crystal remain perfect. I really do love the depth appearance of the sapphire bezel and it continues to shine!

Maybe because it was a very thoughtful gift, but I cannot remember when I have last enjoyed wearing a watch so much or wearing the same watch for such a long stretch of time.

My only complaint is that it has lost 6 seconds total since I first put it on. :shock:

Thanks again to the Admin Team for this beauty. :D
