NWA: C65 Chronograph

Post by RichM »

I find that I have a slowburn on watches and overtime become obsessed with certain models that, when first released, I paid no attention to. The C65 SH21 LE was one and I managed to pick one up in a clearance sale. I love it but it's very blue and doesn't have a screw down crown.

Just this week I was idly browsing on eBay and there was a C65 Chronograph that I've been salivating over!

It arrived today and looks great!

Great catch.

It’s a watch I would love to add to my collection.

Thank you both, and Thunder1, that GIF made me laugh out loud!

I wasn't looking to buy but it was a serendipitous moment where, unusually, I had the funds to take the plunge and do it when it popped up in eBay.

It will be my 'summer' watch!

Top notch pick up, Rich. Great watch. :clap: :clap:

I've had one, but let it go to another forum member. :(

Shortly after, I replaced it with a black dial prototype which, again, I've let go to another forum member; but replaced it with a C60 Chronograph #BumbleBeast. :D

Congrats, it's a lovely watch. I've got one as the blue chronograph in my collection. It's nice (and rare) to have a 7750-based chronograph that wears relatively slim. Most 7750 watches are real chunky monkeys.
