Just got notice that mine has shipped, but being overseas it isn't slated to get here until next Thursday.

Cheers,

No update on my watch, unfortunately. Fingers crossed they were just too slammed to get all 250 out in one day, and mine will be forthcoming in the second wave. Otherwise, I missed out on some good deals this morning for no reason.

Join the club. I was also hoping to get shipping info today but nothing of the sort so far. Well, tomorrow is another day :)

Hang in there— I just received my shipment notice this morning, so it should arrive next week (US).

I like it, and it is a bargain, but I don't think it's for me...

Hey @jtc,

Why do you say it isn't for you? I agree the Tudor has more "presence", but isn't that the purpose of a "stealth" watch to fly under the radar?

Cheers,

M

Oh— how lovely in the flesh! I have that same Pelagos, but I think the C60 is sufficiently different. There’s a brutishness to the Pelagos that really highlights the elegance of the C60. I’ll be interested to see how the C60 looks on a bracelet when mine comes, but I can see myself ordering one of those straps as well.

Thanks for sharing a pic. I look forward to seeing more as our friends in the UK start to receive them today.

I will reveal a little "secret" that I had been privately mulling over, but I will probably not take up, so someone else might well be interested, and can take advantage.

There is actually a great looking and somewhat similar C60 Abyss on sale in sales corner for less than the cost of the graphite. Even if you bought a full priced Gunmetal bracelet, it would still come out less than £640, including the existing hybrid strap. :D

I was going back and forth on whether to buy the graphite. It’s a great looking watch, and I still kind of want it, but I’d have to sell my Abyss to make room. I wasn’t willing to do that. The Abyss would be a great alternative for someone who wants something like the graphite, but with more stealth and a nice pop of color.

Mine arrived today! Very impressed and the grey is really nice.

Here is a comparison against the abyss, and the abyss prototype for those of interest. Now, can i justify having all 3 :-k

The case is gunmetal PVD, with a DLC caseback.
