My first CW watch and still very much cherished……

I have worn a CW C8 Pilot MkII for seven straight days, and it’s been an absolute joy. To add to the enjoyment I have photographed the watch en-route. This was my first CW purchase, that was twelve years ago. Note the original logo, which was pencilled by Chris Ward. I am not surprised that the beautiful design led to the C8 Pilot Revival Special Edition issued in January of this year.

A very nice collage.

Although the CW Pilots were never my favorite, due to the 44mm size, I always thought it was a great looking watch.

I guess when it comes to watches, size matters. I would have added the revival to my collection if the case had been made smaller.

Isn't 44mm on the small side for a pilots watch. I thought they were often 48mm or even bigger?

Pilot watches come in all sizes, they certainly don’t follow any rules. The guys who fly the Polish Heritage Flight collection wear a 41mm TRIBUS, fulfils the function.
