Just don’t be too hasty! Sell in haste, regret at leisure. :shock:

:lol: i'll be careful! prob best to buy the vintage first and see how it is on, then make decisions about other watches after that. i think the vintage would get permanent one-watch status given that it's 38mm.. my C11 is such a glorious watch but i don't wear it that often nnow because it's 42mm, and i'm skinnier than when i bought it... best to try and keep things real! :D

For what its worth I think this would be a good swap for you. The only cw that I keep toying with, very understated and a little unusual and probably a much better size for you.
Go for it

Don't do it Lindsey, your C11 is a most memorable watch for you and besides being a large watch on a slim wrist is fashionable these days.

Isn't it?

ah well, so opinion is divided! i have my rational, nonsentimental head on today so will have some more thought..... :thumbup:


(Edit, and update) -- i think that i just can't afford to hold on to the C11 and wear it so rarely, just because it was very meaningful to me when i bought it. i have always loved the idea of having just one watch (excluding beaters say), and selling my 'collection' to get back to that place feels good to me at the moment. will obviously give such a big purchase some more thought...... :)

That's one of the few CW's I'm attracted to - especially on the green strap. Swapping a rarely-worn watch for an everyday wearer makes lots of sense to me.

:thumbup: the 38mm is a nice size and would proably suite you more. Agree with Downer the swap makes sense, on paper. Try storeing the C11 away from the rest of your collection and see if you miss it after a week or two.

I initially thought 'No', as it's a special watch for you.
However if it's not being worn that often then it could be time to go.
That C65 Vintage on the green, I could really see that on your wrist Lindsey.
