Those C65's are brilliant - the watch fund didn't allow them to join my collection when released - I've casually looked for them since. Any idea how many were released?
Thank you... I think it was 150 of each.

The C65 SH21 Bronze was a lovely watch, but I just didn't wear it enough... it's gone to a good home though :D

The C65 SH21 LE was my second SH21 and my most worn watch until the Concept arrived in Dec 2021, followed by the Omegas... I really don't wear it very much at all now, so it might finally go up for sale very soon :shock: I'm also "trying" to keep to a "one in, one out" policy :problem: I'll be having a think over the next few days and decide from there.

It’s a very rough and ready photo, but you’ll get the idea. :D

I feel like if I had that SH21 as a one-in it could help send at least 2 of my other c65's out... though I'm already lagging behind with that one-in-one-out policy myself, having added 2 in the recent sale and 2 in the past few months without shuttling any out... there's going to be a reckoning in the watch box soon lest my bank account stage a coup d'etat

Back in 2021, I had about eight C65s, but thinned it down to just the C65 Cranwell and the C65 SH21 LE, so yes it really is the "top tier" C65 :thumbup:

But, I just don't wear it very much and so it might be going... that may or may not be good for your bank account (or someone else) :lol:

Many of you know me from over at CWE and I post here occasionally when I have something particularly interesting to share. Today it's my own little curated SH21 collection. I've had the pleasure of also owning the C8 Power Reserve in stainless steel and the C1 Small Seconds, both of which I miss sometimes. But here is what I am calling "greyscale" or "grayscale" depending on your dialect, as my SH21s. Happy to see other groups of SH21s in others' collections :) Cheers all.

Hi Brian,
I saw your great video yesterday about the PowerGlow. Thanks a lot for that!

I envy you the Powerglow - the dream of my sleepless nights
Thanks for that! And your collection is insane :shock: :D I've seen most of it before, but thanks for sharing again.

Great trio of SH21's Brian :clap:

And also to the rest of you guy's with SH21 collections, particular note to Thomas, Alex & Gary :clap:

At one stage I owned quite a few SH21's.
I owned the C9 5 Day SH21, the C1 GM 5 day SH21, the C60 Abyss SH21 and the C9 Small Seconds SH21.
All gone now and my only SH21 left is the utterly fabulous C65 Trident Diver SH21 LE :
