Post by Greggy99 »

Does anyone know if there are any reviews of this one, I am hoping to buy one of these or a diver watch in the next couple of weeks?

The C11 is a great looking watch, but then so is the blue C600 .... tough choice. Buy both!

I have both. The crystal on C11 is amazing. I like the watch a lot. I recently got the C600 with the blue face. It is truly amazing, the PVD coating, tritium tubes, the blue face. Now I don't have the heart not to wear the diver. :) My vote for the c600 then.

I really like the C11. Think it would be very nice with C8 vintage strap. Does anyone know if the strap of the C8 also has the easy removable strap system?

Not all CW's - the c7/C70/c60 and c40 that I have are all standard straps without quick release springbars, I use a Bergeon tool (to change the straps)! :oops:

Hi,

As above I would recommend Kips take on it, very balanced review.

I owned one briefly and it was amazing, well built, heavy, the crystal is invisible, the only thing I would say is that if you have a smaller wrist it might not be suitable, my wrists are 6.5inch and this is what it looked like,

Hope it helps :-)

Yes

Hi Jag, color of strap seems to be similar, but stainless steel is not PVD coated.
