Like boomerangs, they're back... VEV's

Post by alanrolfe01 »

Following in the footsteps of our old friends Birkin and Al Deere the C65 1VEV and 2VEV are back on the CW website. :lol: :lol:

There must be a slow drip feed of supply coming from Switzerland - I don't care I've already got mine :D

I don't think it's a case of 'following in the footsteps of..'
More likely that CW had supply issues as mentioned above. The Birkin & Al Deere, they just couldn't shift, for whatever reason.

I just checked the website and it seems only the 1 Vev is available. It may look too much like the original AM GT to stir interest among those of us who already bought the "last" quartz watch to ever be issued by CW.

At £495 on leather, it looks like you could go for a bracelet, (£600) and then use the loupe voucher to get it back down to £500.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I have no idea what we are discussing here: I went the website and searched on "C65", "VEV" and "Limited Editions" and I'm no further forward...

They are still listed under Limited Editions today.
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Reappear just after the £100 voucher off expired :thumbdown:

So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said "Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."

I'm not sure that is the case. They were alive and well when the voucher was in full force as well.
