Thanks anyway :thumbup:
The white/black C65 caught my interest too. Not enough to buy though. I didn’t even see the orange Sapphire!

Thanks for the opportunity on some unique variations, just missed out on a couple of choices. Oh well... hope all are worn well and enjoyed! 8)

The orange sapphire was the only thing really ‘whacky’ in my view. I was expecting maybe a few more wild options like that.

Nevertheless, well done to CW and to Kip. A great idea, well executed too.

I got delayed getting access to the Sale. :( :(

Several had already gone, 'add to bag' greyed out, but I found the C60 Bronze Mk3 with matt blue dial (not Ombre, which doesn't float my boat) still available and have plumped for that. :D :D

A minor niggle that it was RRP and not Nearly New but ho hum. :lol: :lol:

It will be a suitable replacement for my Mk2 C60 Bronze that I have recently sold back to its original owner. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Huge thanks to Kip and the team for creating a great opportunity for forum members. Didn't manage to get anything myself as they sold out super-quick, but it was interesting to see some of the prototype designs. Look forward to seeing some wrist shots over coming days/weeks!

Appreciate the efforts the admins did to get this thang going..for me, the bronze C65 manual wind Trident looked interesting, but was gone before I could do anything..hope some members of this forum got lucky.. :thumbup:

So I'm wondering what really was the point of a screenshot being posted in Facebook CWA?

Well I didn’t know what I was looking for until I found it... :D

I’m joining Lotus Cars next month but it’s always bothered me how the C65 Black Gold uses rose gold, so is rather different from the JPS Lotus it is inspired by!

And I was thinking the other day how I’d seen a prototype in the last sale with a yellow gold case and how I might seek out the person who bought it.

Well, if the CW Gods are with me, I might have just found it in this special sale! Sincerest thanks to Kip, other Admins, Mods and CW!

I’m only a Junior here, so apologies if anyone else desperately tried to buy it. :eek:

I guess non forum members, like a few members here, were not in the market, or were unable to join, but wanted to see what was available out of curiosity.

Somehow I failed to copy the password, and that knocked me out of speed mode. Looking at the pic seems I missed a paler orange sapphire - that would have been an insta buy. If the legitimate buyer decides it's too bright for them please consider me before returning it :silent:

Thanks Kip for organising and CW for the opportunity, maybe next time.

p.s. surprised the C65 GMT is still available!
