Few minor scratches on the bracelet and marks on the dial/underside of the crystal.

I've been in touch with CW and they've asked for photos. I won't add pics here as I don't want to turn this into a negative thread as the watch itself deserves praise. I'll update once it's resolved.

The hands and bezel are spot on, so that's just angle and lighting.

@nbg - what were you seeing?

@stefs - not the best looking is it. Bent the nail back!

This morning I just realized #tide strap 20 mm. light blue orange that may well fit C60 Atoll at 30% off.

Yes; the 20mm #tide strap will fit the C60 Atoll but is it the right strap from a colourway perspective?

I'm not convinced as the colour highlights on the Atoll are black and red, not dark blue and orange as on the #tide strap.

There's only one true way to find out. Buy one. :wink: :wink:

I'm sure you'll be able to do that before me as my C60 Atoll won't be coming for a few weeks as it is in one of the later batches.

So far so good, no issues that I can see like Ryan has.

Definitely more a shorts and t-shirt wear than shirt and jacket :lol:

Gorgeous dial, and bit of a shame there's no lume on the bezel like the sapphire but happy all the same :thumbup:

I must say I think the Atoll was a very competitively priced offer. To me it bears comparison with the watches currently being offered in the sale.

Generate buzz?

The pricing strategy seems similar to when the C65 AMGT LE was first offered in that it was introduced around the time of the sale and the price was marketed as already reflecting a discount. And In comparing it to earlier models with the same movement, it was very competitively priced!

I was considering the exact same thing when it popped up on the sale page. But the more I looked at it the less I think it will work with the Atoll. Unless the blue dial is VERY close to the blue on the strap I don't think it will look right. And the orange line throws it off IMO.

The blue tide strap might work better I'm thinking. The light blue center stripe looks like it will work well with the dial. But I'm going to hold off on any strap purchases until I get a good look at this watch in the metal.

This is the strap I'm talking about
