There's one in the Sales Corner?

Thanks for flagging. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise; based on the pics i am underwhelmed. Let's wait and see what else is in the CW product pipeline.
I think I understand where you're coming from. The 40mm case, the correspondingly "compact" bezel and even the dial colour in some light levels don't exactly shout out "look at me". But I've worn mine in the last three days when the ambient light was good and I shall be happy to keep my 1 of 49 and wear it in rotation. Man I had to get it off the tide strap though...

Yes, the strap does not do it any favours. Looking at the pics in detail to me it’s too much of a mix of different style elements. Never say never but giving it a pass for now.

Haha! Not sure whether to be upset that I ruined the watch for you, or not!? :lol: I think I too was underwhelmed. Putting it side by side with the Kingfisher I thought that the dial would look superb if it was that bit bigger (e.g. On the C60 300) but perhaps they tried that already. I felt the same about the sapphires earlier too.

It looked small in the box and still does when I look at my wrist, but I love it. Properly orange yet somehow not shouty is hard to do... The #tide strap is also surprisingly comfortable given how stiff it feels (I wear it tight) so I'm considering a full orange one for when I'm in a "you can never have too much orange" mood :lol:

I've had mine on leather since the day I got it and IMHO it looks great on honey brown leather and on the bracelet. I haven't put it back on the tide strap but to cycle it through a number of straps to see what might work best. I wouldn't say I'm deep in love with it overall, but I am enjoying the heck out of it.
