Seems a strange omission for a "racing" chrono. The C7 IRR manual certainly went over it.
Per the CWArchives, it looks like the C7 IRR has a different movement, a Ronda 3540.D. Perhaps that explains it?

I agree though, one would expect split timing in a racing chrono. Maybe it’s there but just not documented in the manual.

I had the COSC version which had the ETA 251.233 and symmetrical sub dial layout.

Did you torch the dial first? And how long does it last?

The lug and endlink fitment is fantastic for a $600 watch. I can’t think of a better example of proper design and execution for even under $1000 except for $775 Halios, and this gives Halios a run for its money.

I don’t think CW is getting enough credit from the major critics. I know they give good reviews, but I don’t hear them paying attention to the details.

the light on my iphone for about 5-10 seconds I reckon. The initial glow soon fades as usual but that said I could clearly ready the time in darkness at 5.40 this morning which is a plus :thumbup:

My C65 AMGT 2VEV just arrived - surprised that I had to zeroise the Chronograph central Hands - the subdials were fine ...

Next job is to swap the Bracelet for the R&B Hybrid ...

My 1 VEV pointers were all spot on. Time is about 30 secs slow, will adjust later.

Adjusted bracelet according to number of links on my C65 diver. Didn’t work, had to make further changes. Half links would’ve been helpful.
Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night. Be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels - Frank Sinatra

Wow, that’s a lot better than I expected. It seems CW is picking up their lume game.

Same here, mine are sitting a couple of seconds off... will set them to zero later and also swap onto the hybrid :thumbup:

Looks lovely though :D
