FYI: CWA LE C60 Trident Pro 300 Solaris

Post by thomcat00 »

The CW Aficionados group has been busy crafting a limited edition design based on the newly available Pro 300 variant of the C60 Trident watch model.

Initial Design highlights:

- matte sunray dial
- black swish logo
- SOLARIS name in black accent color on the dial
- black lollipop seconds hand with tip in light blue accent color
- sun image in the center of the closed caseback
- CW AFICIONADOS and 2023 LIMITED EDITION on case back

Some design details remain subject to change with feedback from CW’s bespoke group.

The price for Solaris (GBP)

£705 on the Hybrid strap.

£850 on the wonderfully tapered bracelet.

£905 if you want both strap and bracelet.

Our CWA model is going to be the 42mm Light-Catcher case. Once again there must be a minimum order quantity of 50 to make the run and there will be a considerable delay in delivery dates (sometime next year), as the cases will need to be made so as to not disrupt planned production.

A wonderful bonus is that the owner's manual ( Cover and Contents) that will come with Solaris is CWA Solaris specific, and the outer sleeve of the watch box will also be adorned with CWA Solaris related text and image (depending on the embossing image we ultimately decide on)

As Solaris is very much a Limited Edition piece each watch will have a unique serial number and if you wish, there's the opportunity to select the number you want. This will be on a 1st come/ 1st served basis and we will provide a 'Go Live' date and time allowing for global timezones where possible.

Update as of 11 September, just before midnight: It's go time!

To reserve a spot for this bespoke CWA Solaris 42mm and your intent to buy, please send an email with the following information:

Email address: cwaficionados@gmail.com

• Your choice of strap (hybrid / leather), bracelet or both 1 strap and bracelet

• Your personalized engraving if desired

• Your choice of limited edition number if desired. We or CW will assign a random number after sign-up is closed if no selection is made or your preference is already claimed. You may want to provide a choice of LE numbers in case your preferred one is not available anymore or falls outside the range.

You can find a view-only spreadsheet with the numbers that have been reserved here:

Shaun's post:
I hope your weekend was relaxing and that you are all set for the coming week because we have reached the exciting closing stages of our glorious bespoke Solaris.

CW will make the minor changes to the issues of darkening the accent colour, and extending that very colour further up our replacement lollipop second hand.

We have taken on board the positive response to the member-suggested case back design, and how, as a diver, Solaris should have a water reference. As such CW will alter the case back design we revealed earlier.

These last points mean we now simply need to determine an accurate number of people wishing to go ahead with purchasing their very own limited edition Solaris.

Note: this LE is open to all. You do not have to join the CWA FB group.

Looks very good, but I already have this beastie… an LE of one. So I can confidently predict that it should be a lovely looking watch in real life too.
