Foundational

With the original C65 range a few years ago, I personally liked the later variations more than the initial variants. That's why I have the C65 Chrono, C65 SH21 LE and the C65 Super-Compressor. I feel that the Aquitaine range may be the same. I like the case, crystal, bezel and bracelet - and think these will prove to be an excellent foundation on which to develop other variants in the future. I don't dislike the initial variants, but I feel there may be better things to come (I don't have any inside info on this, it's just a hunch based on what happened with the C65 Mk1). Indeed, the white sand & blue GMT version is still a possibility, but I will wait to see some more real world pictures and experiences first.

That’s a keen observation. It will be nice to see how the line develops.

Well, there’s been a real gallimaufry of words in this thread… maybe that suggests a rather nondescript offering?
