That's as maybe BUT it doesn't mean that you've bought it new from CW, you might just as well have bought in the Sales Corner or off eBay. :lol:

Notwithstanding, I'll take a punt on it being a C65 SH21 LE, to partner the C65 SH21 Bronze you were wearing this morning. :D :D

Bought second-hand from eBay, listed as used albeit nearly new and has arrived in, frankly, mint condition on a Blue Tiber strap.

Switched onto a WatchGecko BoR bracelet to give it that vintage retro vibe :D

Interestingly enough it seems to wear larger than the 41mm would suggest but that may be down to the bracelet.
Anyway, very pleased with it and can see this being my 1 watch, Holiday watch with a couple of quick release rubber tropic straps.

I’ve been saying the BoR bracelet is the perfect compliment to the SC ever since Ian (@Tortoise) first posted a pic of his SC on one. It’s perfect! Congrats.

Brilliant watch. I bought the black sand on our forums and love it. The blue looks really nice as well :-)

How about a watch strap!?
Let me know what lug width and colour preference and I'll see what I have :wink:
