I was wondering this as well. Same for the C60 Sunrise.
Do Christopher Ward hide certain models away on their website for the few in the know (like a treasure hunt)?

Also, wasn’t the ‘Everywatch’ coined for the Sealander?

I thought the sunrise was released as a watch within the sale. Is that not correct? Was it just released as a limited edition. It seems curious to release it while everyone's attention was focused on the sale. The same with the shadow really.

There’s precedent for this, for introducing a model at a discounted price as part of the biannual sale. The C65 AMGT LE was introduced at the time of the July sale at a discounted price compared to earlier models with the same movement and specs.

Potentially it's using the ETA GMT movement as, seeing posts referring to it having been around for a while, it was conceived and movement supply secured, prior to CW's adoption / Sellita's release, of the SW330. :-k :-k

That’s a good looking watch. I like the rotating center disk quite a bit. I wonder what other things could be done with this.

And I'm curious now about Everywatch(™) and if CW intends to use it for something :-k
Ah that rings a bell#. :)

That is where I first found out about it. Equally sad. :lol:

Not necessarily 'the one' but there is one on eBay already;-

£600 for a Sealander GMT is pretty decent - opening bid though. :-k :-k.

Most dealers have a solid gold Roche Foucault. In Philadelphia it's worth 50 bucks. :D

My thoughts exactly, another down vote to match the BC.

Good price at 40% off tho, think of the mark up on eBay. Worth buying if you qualify.
2 now on eBay.

I like Everywatch rather more than GoDo, which doesn't flow as comfortably as GADA.

Right? The Atoll was mailed to everyone (but perhaps being 350 pieces makes more sense?) that Sunrise was what? 35/40 thats really low numbers and this one was? 500.. never saw it until sold out. Love the blue, like the inner disc, not a daytrader myself but as novelty for the right price always a spot in the box.
