My comment on the "Bespoke CW on Insta" thread ....

£100 over the price of a standard same spec Sealander Auto - I think that's pretty good for a relatively exclusive watch.

Could a FLE be achieved on a Sealander Auto or GMT with a unique colour dial ?

Auto @ £625 + £100 on a tide strap.
GMT @ £850 + £100 on a tide strap.

??

Edit - just seen they call it a Highlander - we could have a FLE-lander ? :D

I emailed to see if they had any left. My guess is I’m too late.

I do think a FLE could be feasible if things were kept simple. A change in color to something interesting could do it.

That’s just the kind of non-controversial colorway that will move hundreds of units

Man, I’d be curious to see a Sealander with a white wavy dial like on earlier Tridents

That SW bespoke watch is so tastefully done. It’s extraordinary.

Another one for the wish list: I’d love a Pepsi or coke bezel GMT. My friend picked up a nearly new Pepsi trident in the sale and I’m filled with white hot jealous rage.

^^^ A GMT with 24h pepsi would certainly be useful for when your feet get cold in the wintertime, the sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine, and it’s hard to tell the nighttime from the day.

Why don’t you come to your senses - FLE8 ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. :D

Just keep Wishin’ and Hopin’

By the way! Why isn’t there a watch related song thread. Just a thought.

When I joined Forum I was welcomed with many a Beatle song reference in the welcome posts.

Christopher Ward ever made a white dial with red bezel? That would look sharp!

If I get the details on this wrong someone please correct me.

It was announced in 2019 that the red ceramic bezels were to be discontinued because the pigment used for them was no longer available.

As regards the sapphire bezels now used for the Aquitaine, Mike France seemed to suggest that these could be made in any colour. So who knows what may become available in the future?

I don't think that will happen as, IIRC, CW announced some time ago that they were stopping production of the red ceramic bezels and they would not be released anymore.
