New CW Sealander Chronograph

Post by kev017 »

Someone posted this on Reddit. A premature post on Instagram of an upcoming release. 11.55mm thick chronograph?!

Premature post or the start of a drip feed?

I'm sure it's both - deliberately :D
(As it's a chronograph, I'm sure it'll be very cool for people who like chronographs. It's not for me so I can just enjoy the reveal. If it's really 11.55mm thick then it's probably worth everyone taking a look)

That could be a killer holiday watch on rubber.

There was an observation by someone recently that there isn't a chronograph in the current lineup. This changes that. I like it, although it's too similar to one I already own so won't be looking to get this one.

It might be the angle of the photograph but those subdials look in a similar position to the older quartz motorsport chronographs. This might explain why it’s only 11.5mm thin.

Not sure what movement that will have. The position of the sub dials look to rule out an SW510M.

I will probably wait for the C12 annual calendar, moonphase, GMT, chronograph, chronometer.

That case thickness is seriously impressive. How on earth have they managed that!
Fair play and very good looking

A 39mm diameter with 11.5mm thickness would be special.

11.55mm is seriously svelte, so I wonder what the movement is. Hand wound, do you think? I prefer 40mm plus,but 39mm would surely be OK, with no bezel or tachymeter.

I have a C7 rapide chronograph which I find awkward to read, but maybe this will be better. I hope so.

It says chronometer as well, which is good.

It looks like the lower subdial is running seconds, and the left subdial is a 30,minute counter, but it's not clear what the right subdial counts. Maybe 10 hours in half hour increments. That would be more useful than just a 30 minute maximum. :D

Actually, I think that may well be correct. You normally see mechanical.chronographs with subdials at 3 and 9. Subdials higher in the dial are generally quartz (a la moonswatch). That would put dampen my interest.

100% quartz. CW would not release a chronograph in chronometer guise as their first and only Sealander chronograph. Plus, the subdial layout.

This looks like many of Tissot’s quartz chronographs on the market. A really disappointing release IMO if that is what it turns out to be.

Read my lips - “no more quartz models from CW”. :)

IIRC a chap at CW said as such a few years ago…

Be interesting to see the price of this, if it is quartz. I quite like it. Clean design. Applied markers. The flash of red. Good size.
