It's almost as if getting $1M in revenue in one day was a massive motivator to trying to see if lightning can strike twice.

From that pic alone, I think the green might look even better than the blue. I wonder if any takers of the blue might be rethinking their purchase in light of the green? :lol:

Oh I reckon that there will be. :silent:

Not because they prefer the green, but because the more colours that CW produce….

The less chance there is of the watch being sellable in the secondary market at a premium.

Perhaps some orders for the blue will be cancelled, in light of the new green variation. You may get lucky.

Is it just me that thinks this is a bit off? I feel cw should have given people the choice at launch.
Also…a six month wait for a CW!
Cheers now, Paul

I do wonder if the pics of the green model are just photoshopped over the blue pics.

Does anyone know if an actual prototype of the green platine exists already, ie that that shade of green is confirmed?

As for the long wait, of course CW have to complete their blue orders first. So the question is who is willing to sign up for the green model at this point in time.

I imagine there might be a few people annoyed that their purchase isn’t quite as exclusive as they thought it would be or that have bought the blue and would rather have the green.

I also think it’s a bit naughty to take three grand for a watch that’s going to be delivered in July.
