Received my NN c40 and c600 (all the way from GB to HK), the qualities are ridiculous, not near new condition, but definitively BRAND NEW :lol: :lol: :lol:

Again, very impressed, both watches IMO are insanely good value at the NN price 8)

Ok. Thanks. Doesn't appear to be on the website, though. Oh well, I'll look into it some time. I really like the rubber one, it's surprisingly comfy to wear. Also, considering those maratacs, too.

It's not. I emailed Wera. Rubber one was kinda stiff and long for me but a very nice strap.

That explains it.

Have to admit, it is rather stiff and long for my wiry wrists, but it still wears more nicely than the C11 does. I'm happy with it but as said, will consider a bracelet or a maratac at some point. For now just enjoying the fantastic piece. Best CW so far for me. :D

Eight days (including one national holiday) from London to Florida and I have a beautiful NN C5 Aviator. It is as new - there is no evidence that it has ever been out of the box. Plastic on both glasses etc. The cream dial and blue hands are really something. The whole package is very, very nice. I have it on a Hadley Roma 18/18 brown strap and it seems perfect (not counting the three other straps that will get a try-out). No wonder you folk love these things. I'd post a picture but the website does not seem to function as WUS and the others so I'm at a loss on that score.

I had a bit of a splurge with the NN C9s. I got a C90 (with wonky numerals) as I have mentioned before, a C9 with black dial that looks perfect and is on my wrist now. I also got a GMT also a lovely looking watch. Shame it doesn't actually work. Think it will be off for repair in the next day or so so get to see how the 360 is working. Will try and get a few pics of them all together done before the GMT and C90 go back.

It is indeed especially for the NN price. Would of liked it to have 22mm lugs bt apart from that excellant value
