C63 SH21 Blue Marine

Post by maclink »

This baby has been quietly released. It's a limited edition. A beautiful piece, though out of my zone of preference in size and thickness. The SH21 calibre also sounds mighty interesting. It seems to need a bit of extra space considering the case thickness.

Wasn't this released at the same time as the C63 SH21 Snow Leopard a full year ago in March 2023 but was subsequently withdrawn due to a temporary shortage somewhere in the SH21 manufacture chain?

I can vouch for the C63 Snow Leopard as being a good watch in the SH21 line-up and yes it's 13.1mm deep.

Yup; the C63 Blue Marine was officially released in March 2023, as recorded in the CWArchive - C63 SH21 Blue Marine.

My understanding is that the LE of 150 pieces was Sold Out fairly swiftly but, as mentioned by @tikkathree, supply issues on components for the SH21 movement delayed delivery, for some buyers, until just recently.

I don't know how many pieces are currently available, nor whether they are original unsold inventory or cancelled orders.

That said, it's a great opportunity to grab an SH21 powered watch and support the Blue Marine Foundation.

PS> There are several threads here on the forum from March - May '23 about the C63 Blue Marine and Snow Leopard that are a quick search away. :wink: :wink:

I'm guessing these are the result of cancelled orders from the long delay in production. A great chance to buy a spectacular watch without a year long wait! Loving mine 8)

Sold out, it seems. They don't appear for long. Stocks are low and it's their in-house movement, so the demand is pretty high.

It was an LE from a year ago that’s had some pretty rough delay issues so any stock was most likely people who cancelled their orders.

I was able to snatch up one of each from canceled preorders! I’ve become rather bored with the Sellita offerings, but these SH21s have my attention.

I assume they've been running well? What's their accuracy like?

Blue a little fast, white a little slow. More than acceptable, especially during break-in.
