TEN more LIMITED EDITION BEL CANTOS

Post by tikkathree »

You'll have this email from CW I guess.... Flippantly I'm going to suggest that if batch 2 of CWFLE2023 have not been shipped my the end of February, the names of the buyers go into the hat for one of these.

I really am bored by the whole BC pazzazz. :silent: But hear this: were I to win one of these I would donate it to charity.

They are not available to win, you have to buy them. That involves being there on the day and, I would imagine, beating the queue.

Going off the length of time some people have been waiting for theirs, I’d remember to take a packed lunch as it might be a very long day.

@iain I think that all ten watches will be there on the day to buy.

It has been known for months that there would be a special BWCM CW watch only available to buy on the day.

The smart money was always on it being another BC.

^^^^ I’m sure they will be available to take home. My post wasn’t intended to be taken seriously.

With the pushed back delivery dates for various BCs, perhaps it ought to be branded Bel Can’to


I’ll just get my coat and show myself out…

You say that in a way which implies a one time event :shock:

Also be prepared to give them a 3rd of the cash in the morning, be ignored when you ask what time you can collect it and to witness the launch of 3 other limited editions during the day before you leave with the watch at 5pm.

Also if you pay extra you might get the bonus of waiting a few weeks for a new case back when they get the engraving wrong. You will be the proud owner of a GPHG winner though :thumbup:!
