No I'll never be a convert, I'll never berate anyone for loving one but they just make me want to jump out a window

@ James, you have to hold a purple C5 or C5 slimline to apreciate its beauty. Fantastic colour unlike most CW blues ( not scooter blue :cuinlove: )


For me. Dislikes are all C70,s and C7,s of old.

That's probably fair comment...and the wide hands cover the chrono subdials making it very difficult to use that feature...but I still love it :D

I realize the purple is a big turn off for some, but my purple C3 chrono is one of my favorite watches. :thumbup:

This thread deserves a resurrection of that old adage: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Get it out with Optrex.

Apology: Really sorry everyone.

Next step: I'll go back to my corner and face the wall!

My worst 3 are the ones I just missed out on, in the sale.

Then I can console myself that I didn't really like them anyway.

I love that one, probably my favourite C11. Just shows we're all different :)

They are indeed. I own both the purple and the green C5 slimlines. Wish I'd bought a purple C3 before they sold out, but my daughter loves her green C3.

Agreed! I was surprised at the level of hate it received. Love mine.
