Welcome to The Asylum!

The Non COSC C70 DBR1 was a limited edition of 500 pieces. They have been sold out for quite some time. Right now your only option (new) is the COSC model. You can always put up a Want to Buy in the Sales Corner and see what happens. :)

Welcome to the forum. A most excellent watch in either guise! :thumbup:

The COSC is -15% on CW website until 29/2, if you're interested! 8)

I've pre warned her before she went to work (nurse). I said "well I wanted the cheaper one but it was sold out, plus I get 15% off at the minute and it's a very limited run so I need to strike before they sell out, plus I've quit smoking, what do you mean 'why do I need another watch?' why do you need so many handbags?"

I just got 'the look'. I'm home alone tonight though which is always dangerous, last time I was alone I ordered 3 uniform wares 200 'by accident'. I was alone when I bought the C 9 too funnily enough. I blame the hobgoblin and old golden hen.

Good man - you're recovering already thanks to Dr. Kip's meds!
The handbags were a good opening gambit - the next move is shoes! :clap: :clap:

I'm like a man possessed at the minute, I'm already the highest bidder on a 1976 'Pepsi' seiko to go with my 1991 Pepsi. I feel my CW C9 would be lonely if it didn't have a friend. Just one more ale, then I'll decide if I should buy it. Hell, I can always send it back (I was supposed to do that with the C9 but fell in love)

I won't tell fibs, I had a couple of ales to loosen the wallet, I'm now justifying the spend to my dog with the likes of "I've quit smoking, this is my treat" and "I walk you twice a day so I don't need to be a member of the gym anymore". So far so good, her wide eyed head tilt says I've done the right thing.

It's a no-brainer! your excuse is; you gotta have a COSC. Everybody's got to have a COSC, right? :lol:
