Which is the most popular / desirable C70 ?

Post by Laird » Mon Jun 18, 2018 4:39 pm

One of the homage to early GP races in Britain, France, Italy etc models - or the Car specific C70s like the D-Type & Aston Martin ?

I rather like the greens, but there are seemingly endless variations on green in the range. For me it’s the yellow Ascari.

I would suspect that the C70 DBR1 is the most popular of the Grand Prix series. It has been released in three versions. The original C70 DBR1, a C70 DBR1 COSC model and the C70 DBR1-COSC - AM100.

The DBR and Ascari are my favourites and both on my list of watches I would like to own one day

The VW4 and BRG are both lovely as well.

Thanks for that Kip - somebody else I spoke to yesterday also suggested that the DBR was the popular seller ...

@Laird - Most popular / desirable C70?

The one you want to buy. :shock:

Which is never available when you want it. :problem: :silent:

Seriously, you've got a couple of crackers already. :thumbup:

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

I'd agree but then I'm quite partial to blue dials

I'll never buy another watch. Not until the next one.

I found an effectively brand-new Ascari on Bracelet - been stored since new along with Stablemates C70 FR & C70 IT (currently on EBaY @ £600 BiN)

My target now is the elusive C70 US 'Cunningham Stripe' ... rare as Rocking Horse poo it would seem !

So how many on here own a C70 US - 'Cunningham Stripe' ?

.... and would consider parting with it ? :shock:

I really like the D-Type, I used to drive a Mini Cooper in the same colour blue with white "go faster" pin stripes. The mini has since moved on but this watch is a keeper :thumbup:
