They have indeed decided to milk it :(
I don't know why they wouldn't. They are after all in the watch selling business.

10000 BCs would hardly be market saturation.

So one year+ onwards and these are still the only 4 colours available for the Bel Canto on the CW website. I have been increasingly tempted to buy one, which leads me to two questions.

1. For people that have bought one of the 4 colours available, what colour did you pick and why? I know a “favourite colour” is highly personal, but am open minded to hear people’s reasoning

2. Has there been any mention of a further colour refresh happening any time soon?

I went with the Rosa, kind of a nice, muted color
I thought then and continue to feel the purple is the most amazing, but was a bit too much for old guy me
I would rather see CW catch up on the work they have instead of keep burping out additional iterations they are behind on delivering to customers.

A fair point but it seems that CW have improved their position.

They are currently quoting 'pre-order for End November 2024' i.e. eight months hence; as opposed to 12+ months that they were running at for a most part of 2023.

I do love the purple. I’m just not sure I can “pull it off”.

You can.

I think the purple colour has a similar tonal depth to the original blue and green, and suits the contrast with the large amount of steel on view.

The bright orange special edition did that as well, which is it why it worked so well I think.

That's just my thoughts. I would take the purple from the four active options available.
