Hopefully there's something equally distinctive tomorrow!

I do have a problem though - there's no card stored on my account and I can't seem to add one without buying something. Is there anything cheaper than a £60 strap?! £10 watch pod purchased, problem solved :thumbup:
You can pay with PayPal. It's much easier when you are racing to be first through the checkout with that desirable timepiece metaphorically clutched in your hand.

Kip said he's not opening the pms at the moment so your pm won't move to the sent box til Kip opens it Alan ;)

Just scan-reviewing the prototypes in Jan, there seemed to be a number of C60 colour variations (42mm), a couple of Sapphire colour variations and a C65 or two. Personally, I’d like to see some C65 prototypes and I hold out hope of a slightly more legible Abyss Sapphire. Anyone else want to share what would make them open their wallet?
A green C60! Or just anything green really🤞

Welp, count me out. Hopefully I'll stop being so introverted and post enough for next time something like this comes along

Good luck. Maybe a green sapphire prototype!

Thanks, that would be option A but I'm starting new job with a temporary big paycut next week so this is likely to be the first time I use my credit card as the bank want me to. To make it work on PayPal I'd have to sign up to online credit card stuff to verify it and that involves stupid username restrictions, stupid password restrictions and a stupid memorable word - I just looked and it's unusable :problem:

An alternate colour C63 elite would be nice, or maybe a completely failed alternate 'sport' model that would have fitted in that range. Maybe a slightly bigger one :lol:

^^ Now something completely different would be interesting, especially in a case that didn't make it to production

Relative to all the concerns regarding purchases being made by resellers or for sale on Ebay..... I have been assured that the same security and limits are in place as for the last public CW sale. They will be watching and terminating any improper attempts to buy that they can catch.

That is all they can do.

I will also add that I have verified and entered all the names for password/url notification that have been submitted. I write this post the list is complete. This include all pm's and emails.

I will add more if submitted prior to the mailing. I am still expecting this to go off as scheduled on July 28 at about 12:00 GMT.
