Looking for a Xmas present to myself, I quite like the Ball & Frederique Constant versions of this which are more complicated but waaaaay more expensive, so they are out. Just need to find one similar to the C8 that's priced somewhere between this and the Ball / FC.

It's a fantastic watch - I had one for a few days and only returned it for typographical matters of which we should not speak.

Thinking about trading out my C11 vintage for a Stowa Klassik 40. Thoughts?

I generally hate the 9 o'clock company name (i refuse to call it a logo) but the blank space at 12 created by the new branding is a far bigger sin in my opinion.
So this watch is a pleasant surprise as the big applied 12 fills the role an actual logo would normally perform and makes that watch looks fantastic. Now if they'd only make it in a version for "man child" wrists like mine.

Likewise, that's the only reason I've not ordered it (& for that matter a bronze C60) this afternoon.

TYKE:

This appeared in my inbox today from Alpina (not sure of their connection to frederique constant) but they are offering 20% discount on some models and a further 10% if you recommend 5 friends (i'm sure there are 5 people on here who would help out)

The link is fine, but try and buy an automatic and you'll get a message saying you can't buy. T&C's don't state UK as part of the campaign.

We have family in France, but too much hassle so I won't be bothering although the AL-525DBRNS5AQ6 with the blue dial is lovely and comes with an E-Strap (no idea).
Current collection incl Citizen, G-Shock, Rolex, Seiko, Sinn & Tag.

If you use gmail, you can append +alpina to your email address. That'll then show you who they sell your marketing info to (and let you block it in the future). For example johnsmith+alpina@gmail.com

My referral if anyone is signing up is http://upvir.al/ref/10430898

I admire your willpower to adhere to the one in, one out mantra. I tried to do that for a while, then thought sod it :lol:
Thanks Patrick.

Buy one / sell one remit is a long standing agreement I have with my darling wife; whom I have no wish to upset.

Can't you do a one off sneak in of 50 of these bad boys, then when you plan on getting a new toy, just hurl one of these in the bin- one in and one out :lol:
