Part of me wishes I hadn't read this post :lol:

The other part is happy to have been able to order one... I thought they'd sold out already... thanks for the heads up :thumbup:

Thanks for the post and ordered in a flash! :thumbup:

I honestly was gutted that I hesitated the first time around

I do wonder though if they didn’t realise the full amount for sale last time as it still says it’s limited to 150 pieces?

What do you think about these being relisted? I assume they’re returns under the 60/60 since these are limited to 150 pieces

It’s very possible they didn’t release all the stock first time around :?

Didn’t this also happen with the C65 AM VEVs earlier this year too ?

They generally get batches of watches in so this is probably the last of two batches.

Yes, this is typical. But when these sold out the first time, CW made a big deal of it by posting on Facebook that they sold out in record time and pretty much said you missed your chance. Make of it what you will :D

Pretty sure that returned watches that are still in new condition are sold again as new.

Ok, unless they messed up, that’s a little bit disingenuous :shock:

I shall certainly be checking mine is in mint and new condition, but if not then it simply goes back… I’m sure it will be fine though :thumbup:

I should have bought one last night, so if it doesn't meet your expectations, I'll be glad to take it off your hands :)

Wow has the second lot already sold out then :shock:

Absolutely, although it likely will be fine, if for any reason I have second thoughts once I have it in hand, I'll let you know :thumbup:

One of those early Mido's are up for auction.

Beyond the Dial had a favorable review of the CW. An interesting thought at the end was that he would like to see a Super Compressor with that dial. That would be very interesting. :thumbup:
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Nice watch :D

Now a C65 with this dial would indeed be really lovely :thumbup:
