I'm not sure I'm completely smitten with it and I'm trying to whittle down my collection to just those watches I really, really like. The 60 day return period will be up in a couple of weeks so need to decide whether to return it.

Alternatively, a new strap may transform my feelings for it. This is what happened with my C11 MSL and I now love that watch after a difficult start.

Will have to think. :-k

Is it the look you're not sure of, or the lightweight nature of it?

Can't really put my finger on it yet, so it's hard to say.

I'm thinking you just need a push to return the watch. I know this won't help but IMO it's a lovely watch. I hope the decision is not to painful.

It IS lovely. Perhaps a test might be whether or not you have another which creates the same mood or atmosphere? If not, keep it! You can always flog it in due course.
Good luck.

With a fresh new battery, my C70US. Even with the bezel dings and scratches, I still love this watch. (and yeah, I know the date is wrong. Maybe I'm refusing to acknowledge it's Valentine's Day. Or maybe I am just lazy)

I had the same dilemma with one a few weeks ago and sent it back, i have no regrets in doing so i just ended up hating that yellow.

If only it came with a grey face and green coated hands similar to a few of the Breitlings. :thumbup:
