I usually have launch around midday....
:escape:

As for Dune time I haven’t heard anything. I’m sure that anyone on the forum who spots it will flag it up here - I’d keep checking in :thumbup:

Some outlets have gone early, and already Google indexed. I'm sadly underwhelmed!

The prices are a bit mixed up on the GMT options, the canvas webbing straps are more expensive than the bracelet. :shock:

So once again, my post, which was a screenshot of the actual CW website has been deleted (and yet again, no message from the mods). I give up.

You can literally go onto the CW site and buy these watches, but apparently the forum mods don't want you knowing that?

If this is the case then this is getting plain daft. The watches are up for sale on the website!

The applied logo is absolutely spot on. All these little touches/updates from CW are adding up to a much more luxurious look and feel.
They appear to be listening more than ever.

By my definition, this isn't a field watch, but as an all-round daily watch, it is up there. Like it.

The 38mm case is just a winner for watches like these
I also totally rate the applied logo.

For me, I love the white sand auto on canvas. Such a perfect day to day watch. So classy! Everything I wanted from CW - is here. More muted palette, texture, white dial but not *quite* white :thumbup:

The GMT? Deserves to be the star. CW doing CW and finding different ways of doing things. A GMT field watch . Internal bezel. I’m not overly fussed about owning a GMT. But I think a lot of people will stop to take a look at this one.

Bronze COSC? It could be the (patinaed) bling I’m looking for- in blue or green.

I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do with my money when this went live this morning. But I need to think a bit more about all these options! :D

I’ve had a look at these on the website and I can’t work out the case details.

Dial and hands aside, are these pretty much the same case design as the Sealander but with a different crown and crystal? Im aware these are 38mm compared to 36/39mm but the overall shape looks remarkably similar in the photos on the website. At least to my eyes.

The Aquitaine wasn't for me so no surprises an Aquitaine without a bezel wouldn't be either. I imagine they'll have no shortage of takers though.

This made me laugh/die a little inside, classic nonsense:

It's essentially a Sandhurst with the Aquitaine dial. :thumbup:

The cases are from the Mk2 Sandhurst and Cranwell series.

Amazing applied logo, and the blue on bracelet is very nice, so is that blue version of the bronze COSC.

Unfortunately, and I know Im in the minority on this, I just wished there were another movement in it. Perhaps I've grown to appreciate other things in watches than just design and strict value for money (CW is doing a good job on this, no question), but I think at this point I'm going to wait until either Sellita up their game, or CW rework their SH21 movement to fit it in a smaller offering.

Im pretty sure they have been trying but unfortunately failing at this for years, its just too chunky
