C65 Dune

Post by Devil in the Detail »

Just received the above this morning, all in all a stunning timepiece that will compliment my collection nicely. Two things to note, one the accompanying leather strap sadly arrived with a small stained mark on it, I’ve contacted CS and I’m awaiting a reply. Secondly the packaging has changed slightly, no longer do you get the long bamboo box but a much shortened and far better version of said box.

Just lovely. Congratulations. I can’t have them all, but this is one I’ve looked at and thought I’d be happy owning.

Congratulations on your new arrival :D
I know from experience that I just don't wear black dial watches as much as white dials. But then I see people wearing black dials like this and it makes me want to jump and buy one! I guess at this point I take a look down at the Sandstorm that's on my wrist today, and realise how happy I am with what's currently in the box :thumbup:
I agree that the new stubby box looks more satisfactory - right balance of all sorts of things.

Enjoy your Dune!

That looks nice! Very "field-watchy."
I thought I would fancy that with the sand dial but I played around with it on the CW website and probably would have it with a black dial also.
It looks great on the "Bader" bracelet too.
Without having seen it in person I probably would not let the stain on the strap bother me. Probably just something in the animal's skin.

It's my only gripe, why does CW persist with the khaki markers on the dial?? Please CW, give it a rest now, and offer it with silver markers.

For a counter point, I have plenty of watches with normal lume, and would not be considering the new Dune GMT for my next watch had it “normal” markers

Faux lume for the sake pretend aging is a pet peeve of mine. However, if the tan makers are part of a cohesive design, they can be quite attractive on a watch.

A quick update on the stained strap. Christopher Ward has sent out a replacement and I can keep the old one as a spare. Great customer service yet again from CW.
