Does look very impressive!

From CWs Concept page ....
Meanwhile, the orange triangle at 12 o’clock – here to aid readability – is made of Globolight XP©, a ground-breaking luminous ceramic material, created by Xenoprint.
If that's what this discussion was referring to.

The discussion was about the lume ring and how it compared to the C7 Apex. Globolite is an interesting material. I suspect it glows better in white as used on the Moser. Here's a lume shot of the C60.

Number 100.

Sorry for the v low quality phone pics.

is that lume shot a quick snap, or a 5 minute time exposure before you wound the watch?
It's pretty impressive! :D

It arrived wound and set, and despite me not wearing it, the watch still hasn't stopped :lol:

It was just a quick pic with my phone while the watch was moving, but the phone did take a long-ish exposure. Not too long though as I hand held the phone and watch.

Congratulations. It does look rather good in the pics posted by forumites. :thumbup:

Kind of wish that I had bit the bullet and gone for one.

Now the big question is - will you be wearing it at Christmas, or do you have something more sparkly to wear? :)

No, I think this is about as sparkly as it gets... certainly my Christmas watch :D

That bit about not wearing it can surely only be because both arms are in casts thicker than the watch bracelet allows...?

I'm actually waiting for it to stop, so I can photograph it properly :lol:

It's still running :(

Another hand-held lume shot today (using phone).

You could always unscrew the crown and pull it out a couple of clicks, as if you are setting the time.

This will stop (hack) the seconds hand. :wink: :wink:

It's entirely possible that there will be a review popping up around Christmas. The picture might, just might, be appearing.

I was lucky to have seen one of the C60 Concept watches before they went on general sale. Although I appreciate the smallest of details and the haute horlogerie work, I have not warmed to the design. It’s not a watch that I would enjoy wearing. Delighted for those who have bought.

I know, but the crown out just looks wrong in pics. It finally stopped today though :D
