Does anyone think this bracelet would work colour wise? Can't see a graphite bracelet on the store.

It is a perfect match (I ordered the exact same one to go with my graphite ordered in the strap). Also pleasingly if you have both you basically got the strap free thanks to the sale.

Thank you. Have the watch coming Saturday from a kind member here so have ordered that bracelet to go with. Appreciate the confirmation.

So far so good. What i like best about watch is that it looks so different than other C60 but still doesnt venture into weird-different territory
That butter cream yellow strap is outstanding on your C60 Graphite!

Predicting the C60 Graphite will be similar to Panerai or the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch and wear extremely well with many colours and styles of straps!

Ward Hoard now has one of these for £915! :shock: That’s quite a premium he’s charging!

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.

Bit late to the party with this but I almost bought the graphite but I dithered & it sold out. Then I had an opportunity to buy it from a well respected member of this & the CWE forums but again turned it down. And you know why? Because I’ve always wanted an original 3 handed Abyss like yours. So, to make my mind up I put a post on here for some advice on the Abyss & have been offered one. Bottom line is I feel much more excited about finally getting the Abyss than the graphite & I also (like you) wouldn’t want both in my collection.

Quick pic of mine thanks to jtc here. The strap isn't really me but the bracelet comes in a separate delivery later on.

This is my first Christopher Ward watch as I've always been put off by the Maserati logo on the back of the seconds hand but it's a bit like the Prospex logo on newer Seikos, you don't really notice it unless you want to. Hopefully it goes at some point though...

Must say I'm really impressed at the quality. The bang for buck is massive. I'm used to watches at the other end of the scale but it doesn't feel like Poundland or Lidl on the wrist.

I haven’t heard that one before! Do you have a hard time watching royalty because of the Rolex logo on their head? Haha just kidding… congrats on the pickup, it looks great :thumbup:

Cheers. That one reason I've never had the Air King, just looks like the Morrisons logo. Can't un-see it.

Bracelet now here after some fun resizing. Think I'll try get some official CW straps as the changing system is such a dream Vs messing with the springbar tool.

Ordered it on a bracelet, but it also looks great on this strap:

Sorry but which person's strap are you referring to? A number of people have posted pictures of the watch on a strap.

Cheers,
