So sorry, but once my entries are verified and input. I no longer save source information.

The information I have posted is for units sold (17) since the June 2010 introduction of the IPK model. Units, not sources.

I monitor about a dozen sources, as I have already mentioned, and trust my numbers. The figures you have mentioned fall within the boundaries of my numbers. My numbers are meant to be a guide. Individual sales are affected by many factors and prices will go up and down like the stock market. Note the red line on the chart below as it shows the long term trend.

If you're ever bored Kip, a run through of this data as a youtube video would be really interesting.

Alternatively, exporting the data to a database then presenting using a modern web UI would also be fairly straightforward. There are lots of free/low cost frameworks designed to do just what you're achieving with Excel and more!

One thing I can honestly say is that I am never bored.

Frankly I do not have any interest in making a video, but I am working, along with the Admin Team, on the best way to make this information available. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Well, it came through in the end. Hard to take a good picture of this one. Looks much better in the flesh - will try to take some daylight pics tomorrow.
Lume is pretty atrocious and bezel doesn’t feel tight but I like it.

Just wanted to say thanks to Kip for sharing his research. Incredibly useful for laymen with an interest in CW

"Lume pretty atrocious" in a CW watch isn't news sadly.
Personally I like the dished crystal on this watch.

I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

The Speedhawk was my very first CW (sniff!) and I like it lots on the stock butterfly bracelet; domed crystal, retro look, old skool logo, polished indices and hands, decent lume, steel bezel, exhibition caseback, the red highlights and super grippy crowns.

What I'm not so keen on is the 7750 as the rotor only winds one way so I usually end up having to set the time again after a day or two when it stops. I've actually been late a few times when I looked at the watch and didn't realise it had stopped.

Young man, you've clearly not developed the instinctive "wobbler flick" :lol: :lol: :lol: You should do it just to feel the wobble - that's the true origin of the famous film phrase as the director was/is a 7750 fan like myself.
