Congratulations on a beautiful watch. You really came out ahead with this one, as the gunmetal is much nicer than black DLC/PVD!

I still come back to a point I've made a few times about how CW decides which models make it to production. This plus the power glow are two fabulous looking and very well received watches that haven't, so far, made it to production

Yea that’s pretty great! I wonder if it was an option for what would become the Abyss?

It would be really cool if these prototypes came with a little blurb about their intent/purpose.

I guess they pin pics on a dartboard and those that get missed with three darts are reserved for the special fast fingered few, random bad luck is the only reason that makes sense for most of the 'rejects'.

That approach my explain why CW put the Oh Deere, Birkin’s Blower and the C3 square thing in to production :?

It would be really cool, I agree.

I have a trip to Park Street in mind later this year - I’ll ask them!
