Christopher Ward C2 Lido Forum Limited Edition Watch

Post by tikkathree »

Whilst listening to a Scottish Watches podcast this morning there was an interview with two senior managers from EBay Uk's operation talking about their 12-month old Authenticity Guarantee system.

Dragged in from gardening duties for a meagre bite to eat I quickly checked my emails which included an EBay new Christopher WArd listings email.

I didn't know that there was a black case & dial version of the C2 Lido FLE so you can imagine my surprise to find two identical listings for such a watch: same vendor, same watch, two different prices.

Two of you could be lucky buyers :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

More confusing for me I read your title as Christmas Ward Lido Forum Limited Edition....
I thought we were getting a revisited C2 lido LE as the 1st December collaboration new release. Or was that a new Forum LE appearing from out the blue???

I was reading quickly after that to see if it was going to be smaller than the original 42mm when it all started unraveling...

Where were we again??? :irre: :lol:

C2 IPK

A non-limited black version of the quartz C2 Lido.

It was the automatic C20 FLE version that led to the development of the automatic C20.

I bought one of these for my dad a few years ago when he mentioned he was sometimes struggling to remember the day.

His is on the bracelet but has a few marks in the PVD coating now. He loves it.

. . . ..and the seller needs reporting to eBay for Misdescription.

PS> Ironic considering the sellers eBay user name. :-k :-k

a) have you been on the sauce a bit early?

b) the Christmas Ward FLE: nope, don't know that one either :lol:

c) I wouldn't advise buying a case in a state of unravelment.

And finally

d) A morning's hard labour in the tree surgery department "leaves" me knackered. :oops:
