I think that it is good news that such a sum can be passed onto a worthwhile cause.

I just emailed CS this past weekend. They said they are still on track for mid July.

I like the sentiment, but not the design. As others have mentioned, a “normal” dial with a blue and yellow bezel would be good.

Kind of an odd concept to me... people donating to get a watch. Shouldn't you want to donate to help people? LOL

Agree, I did think about it for a while, but I have donated also cash and have provided some assistance through work too. I was not looking to buy another watch, but for me I could get one and also take some comfort in the fact that it is not a money spinner for CW and that they are also doing their bit to help with passing on their margin.

I agree. The watch looks much better in real life than in photos. I feel sorry for those who missed this once in a lifetime buying opportunity just because they thought "the watch doesn't look that nice". It actually looks very nice. And to coledtran and other people who on purpose miss the point: I didn't donate to get a watch. I bought a watch to donate and to own a piece of history. I think there is nothing odd in that.

I received my watch on Friday 15th. It's a C63 Ukraine number 040/300 with a black leather strap. And no, it's not for sale at any price because You never actually own a C63 Ukraine Limited Edition. You merely look after it for the next generation.

Best regards, Mike from Finland

Seconded. I've been searching around and not found too many good shots. Would like to see what kind of straps you guys have gone for too? Assuming this will mainly work with black, white, blue and yellow?
