Without a shadow of doubt my favourite CW watch. I was completely out of my mind to sell this black sand model, especially as I knew it would be tough to replace.

I own 2 CWs at the moment, Sandhurst and C5, and while both fantastic watches, they can't hold a candle to the SC.

The detail and finishing on it is out of this world, especially when considering the price point.

Sold mine too. Biggest watch regret

I’ve owned a total of eleven CWs since 2014 and have enjoyed them all. However, I now only have three. What a trio though!

I’m not sure how I missed this thread back in March. It’s probably good that I did, as my reply is different now from what it would have been in March. I’ve currently got three CWs - a Mk1 C65 Trident Vintage, a C65 AMGT LE, and a 36mm C63 white Sealander.

Is everyone ready for a surprise? I know what some of you might be thinking, based on many posts from me before, but the C65 TV is not my best CW ever. It’s my most prized possession for sentimental reasons, but if I strip away the personal sentiment and think about just the watches, it’s the C63 that has to take the prize. It’s the slightly smaller size, the amazing blue lume, the added flexibility of the design (in that it can dress up or down with a strap change), and the fact that it’s a strap monster that seal the deal.

I’ll add this, I’ve been surprised to find that I enjoy both the C65 TV and the C63 Sealander more by having both of them to contrast with each other, if that makes sense. Now for some pics…

For me personally, it's my 765LT Owners Edition watch.

.....but only until I get my Bel Canto, as I can't see any CW beating that for some time.

Although I don't have one then the C65 Chronograph is one of my favorites.

Yep, and that's a +1 from me. I can even forgive it its 15mm thickness. :lol:

That's pretty cool, not ventured into that part of the forum, or missed the posts on it - Nice :thumbup:
