That is absolutely stunning. I don't think I'd seen the black rotor before. Congratulations!

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

The case is a gunmetal DLC finish (like the abyss), with a polished bezel and the white indices / lume (like a normal C60). So it seems to be a hybrid of an abyss and normal C60. It reminds me a bit of my Mk2 titanium V2 C60, in terms of the contrast and readability. I wonder whether CW were lookin...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Is the main difference the handset? I have seen CW watches like this, but with the teardrop hands that I’m not particularly fond of.

Re: Confusion about SH21 COSC certification

^^^ The OP asked about cons of the watch. My next point is about COSC generally... ... It is only COSC when you first buy it and may not pass a chronometer test when it's time for its first service (and it's not tested for COSC standards again at that service.)... How very interesting! So COSC cert...

Re: Hybrid strap V2

So it turns out I had the V1 strap... I didn’t realise the version change was so recent 😬

It’s been sold and I’ve splashed out on a V2: I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s lightweight, good looking and very comfortable. Well done Christopher Ward.

Re: Hybrid strap V2

Reporting back in after another few days. The strap is getting more and more comfortable which is great because it just goes so well with the watch.

Patience and perseverance pays!

Re: eBay experience

I enjoy buying and selling on eBay. Never had a bad experience as a seller and only ever had in issue as a buyer.

PayPal’s pay after 14 days option work brilliantly for buyer peace of mind, and in this case eBay refunded me directly when the seller stopped communicating.

Re: Hybrid strap V2

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response.

I am wearing it fairly loose tbh, but it’s still leaving a mark (albeit much less pronounced than this time last week).

Re: Hybrid strap V2

Having been the proud ownder of a C60 GMT 600 on a hybrid for three weeks, I can confirm that the strap gets more comfortable as you wear it. I'm not sure if it's the rubber or my skin that's being broken in! My one comment is that the embossed two flags logo is the single most uncomfortable part of...
