Link doesn't appear to open for me, but I've seen that those who registered are now getting emails with four colour options (see image) :thumbup:

Still prefer my blue, but great to see there will be a chance for everyone to buy one :clap:

I'm both relieved and gutted. I don't like any of them. For me it was the original that blue me away and none of the others cut the mustard. So I'm disappointed that I don't have to try and work out how to come up with £3k but delighted that I don't have to try and work out how to come up with £3k!

With these colour options in the pipeline, anyone would be foolish to buy a Azzurro and the subsequent Verde above their retail price. IMHO, as more come on stream they will have lost value.

The Cielo and Rosa are gorgeous! Not gorgeous enough for me to part with $3500 but gorgeous none the less

The Secure your Bel Canto button on my email takes me to the US site and asks me if I want to change to GBP then the link doesn't work when it takes me to the GBP site?

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

Deposit down for the Light Blue, should have pressed the button when the dark was in my basket! Doh! Any how looks like the C60 Concept will be up for sale to fund it unless I can persuade the better half I need both🤣

I’ve had the email but I think the Bel Canto will be one of those watches I admire from afar rather than owning one. Great watches but not for me and I think the two LE colours are the best of the lot.
Iain’s Law: Any discussion on the Christopher Ward forum, irrespective of the thread title or subject matter, will eventually lead to someone mentioning the Bel Canto if the thread continues for long enough.

I like the purple and the pink best. You have to click a lot to get large size images, which you need I think. It would have been helpful to be able to copy a high res image as well. I note the blue and the pick don't have the red beak, which surprises me for the pink one in particular.

I will show my wife on her return later this evening, anyway.

Nice one :clap:

However, I would urge you to reconsider selling the Concept if at all possible... I have both and although similar in price and both have there own great attributes, it's the Concept which I would keep in a straight choice... it's more unique (210), and SH21, skeletonised etc... plus it's likely you could pickup a Bel Canto anytime over the next few years if you wanted, but less likely you'd find another Concept easily if you change your mind :problem:

Exactly... unless someone wants one of the (relatively) few out there now and needs it right now, this will likely kill the recent high prices we've seen on a couple :shock:

Same... although it's only interest for me, as I already have the original blue... good luck getting through :problem:

Bel Canto has definitely lost value, but nevertheless the blue and green are still the only two that are limited.

Not that it matters, as I hope most of us bought them to wear and keep.
