Hello and welcome.

They are no longer produced, but are in high demand! There are two types: a tangerine orange which is rather flat and a more metallic one which is usually referred to as burnt orange. The burnt orange was also produced as a C60.

As you can see, I'm one of the people looking for a burnt orange C6. :D

But he did not explain there were 2 types of orange C6. :D The C60 was a limited edition run of 200. Not sure how many of each C6 were made.

The C6 is quartz and the c60 is automatic.

NN value for still available blue or yellows is about £200, so I would think that is about market rate for an orange one which are no longer available new. This is just a guess as finding one is your problem. I have the tangerine one on a stainless & black pvd bracelet & can confirm it's really nice.

Stick a request in the Forum CW want to buy section & then anyone who might be willing to sell will know.
