I'm amazed how stiff the tide strap is

This is the watch I was hoping to grab. I ended up with the C65 Pepsi GMT instead. I think I'll enjoy the Pepsi.

C60 Abyss arrived today!
This is a watch that looks even better in person. I am thrilled with my new purchase.

I placed my order last Thursday afternoon & CW sent me the notice of despatch on Friday morning. The fact that it reached my doorstep in the middle of the United States by Tuesday morning is amazing. I anxiously traced the tracking as it left the UK, landed in New York, transferred to Cincinnati before DHL handed it off to the USPS in Wichita & was delivered to rural Kansas! What a beautiful watch at a bargain price! :D

That may explain the "Beep Beep" that I heard around the time of its arrival! :lol:

probably the ACME shipping company. It doesn't sound like DHL, does it, delivering on time.

It’s a really sharp watch! In person the orange is mush more subtle than photos, so I’m thinking the blue/orange strap may be a little orange overkill. Probably will just keep this blue strap serving duty, but it’s a little thick and stiff. I wonder if a hot water bath will loosen it up and help it form the wrist better.

Delivered today, swopped the strap for a hybrid.
Great looking watch, I've been over it with a loupe and apart from a tiny mark on one of the lugs its mint.
I was planning to buy this later this year so I have it earlier than planned, which means I am now in the unfamiliar position of not having my next watch in my sights.....

Decided it’s not for me. I’ll post it up later if anyone wants it at the sale price plus something towards the postage.

I’d rather it went here if possible.

If I hadn't already spent my January sale budget, I would have offered to take it off your wrists.

It's a fun looking piece so I imagine it won't last long on the Sales Corner.

My C60 Sapphire in black on the bracelet just got delivered. It really is a stunning piece in person. It has a very industrial look to it that I'm really enjoying. I've never had a bracelet with micro adjusts before and to be honest I'm not really a fan of bracelets in general. But after sizing this one up and getting it dialed in with the micro adjusts, it's starting to grow on me. CW really did do a good job with their bracelets I'll probably pick up a hybrid strap from CW since my C63 came with one and I really like those. Very happy with this purchase!

You post and purchase prompted me to read Al Deere's wiki page. He had quite the career. I don't know if I have it right but I think the aluminum disc on your watch came from his crashed Spitfire that was recovered from the farmers filed in 1973?
