That looks fantastic mate.
Not the best of photos but I'm sure you get the idea.
I've fancied a C700 Grand Rapide for a few years but, having got a C40 Speedhawk in my collection (at the time), I couldn't justify a second 7750 Sports Chrono. Plus the C700 is not a cheap watch. One of the features I like is the baton markers and I nearly bought your C7 a few weeks ago, as I prefer the baton version.
Well; I've not got my Speedhawk these days (scrogg is custodian of it now) and this C700 popped up as a late addition in the 'What Chris has got on his desk' forum exclusive sale last weekend at half the last RRP (£475 on bracelet) but I got beaten to it by Simon (scrogg) by a couple of hours!
However, as luck would have it Simon loves the Speedhawk but couldn't gel with the Grand Rapide so, being a true gent, he offered it to me for the price he'd paid. An offer I could not refuse.
It arrived this morning. It comes with a bracelet but, in agreement with Simon who'd taken the bracelet off to try a rubber strap, we agreed he would not try to refit the bracelet and I've popped it on a C11 HRDC strap for the time being, whilst I wait for something rather special to come from Watch Obsession.
I'm a happy chappie.
PS> Here's another couple of shots as we don't see many C700s on the forum these days.
