You mean chronograph, right? CW being a purchaser of third party movements, I'd also be curious to see how they could pull it off, and would be ready to pay the price for it. Their current chrono offering is way too large and bulky for my taste, however unless they go manual wound I dont know what the mvt offering could be without breaking the bank significantly. Zenith makes a lovely 38mm auto chrono, but the price aint that lovely for most.

As far as Im concerned, and I know it may be years from now if anything, Id like CW to hone in on aspects that are often overlooked: I'd like longer power reserves than what off-the-shelf Sellitas allow for, I'd like titanium options on some of their flagship watches, I'd like CW-designed (with therefore perfect fit) jubilee bracelets that could be retrofitted to sealanders/C60s.

You still can find a decent El Primero for only a few hundred quid more than than a new CW chrono. £1900 could get you a Prime 38mm handwinding El Primero or a Port Royale V. Many of the Zenith El Primero’s from the late 1990’s or early 00’s are still reasonable.

I'm pleased to see the new range of armed forces watches. The new Navy one looks interesting

As a long time fan of the CW brand, and now returning in spending my hard earned cash on a C60 300 , when looking at the current collection range, I was a little disappointed not see more variety as like in years gone bye.
It is heavy focused either on a diver or sport range of watches.
Were has the dress watch, aviation and indeed motor sport collection's gone.
Are there any plans for the above to return in the future?

No doubt I can't be the only person wondering where CW are heading.
I can't help wonder rhetorically whether the potential markets for non-diver types simply don't have any kind of balance sheet appeal for CW: too niche, not big enough?

Not being into dive/military, it leaves very little for people like me. I would have got worked up about that at one time, but…

If they did produce more of the styles I like, would I buy? Possibly not, I have plenty of watches and I am quite happy with them.
