Having not posted in a while, this thread resonated with me. I’m not particularly taken with the newer models. They look impressive but give me a reissued C70 or C5 any day of the week. I can always live in hope that a cache of cases is found at CW headquarters at some point in the future.

They have issued a couple of limited revivals and I think they were received and sold fairly well. I wouldn't be surprised if more follow.

For me hunting down discontinued CW models is my favourite sporting activity!

I’m not overly taken my the most recent releases so I satisfy the “urge” by tracking down and trying out examples I do like the look of.

Incidentally I’ve just got myself a C65 vintage mkII which I’m having a wonderful honeymoon with.

I appreciate that if you’re outside of the US or U.K. the market is somewhat muted on CW, but if you’re okay with eBay I’d take advantage of the weak pound and see what’s available in my home country. I regularly post to US, CA and Australia via eBay.
