Welcome. The Bluebird is lovely though not actually a C70.
That’s good to know. I’ve not seen many either :)

I will almost certainly get round to selling mine in the new year (along with three other C7’s that are rarely worn!).

I’ve owned an Ascari and a VW4 but the only one I’ve hung on to, so far anyway, is this one.

I think it’s the slightly less ‘cluttered’ dial that’s helped it hang around :)

A C7 IRR COSC went on Ebay on Dec 7th in apparent top condition for £280 via auction which i thought was a bit of a bargain and regret not throwing my hat in the ring :problem:

Sadly that Watch has a bit of history ... I bought it on Nov 6th for £240 & within a day the Seller cancelled the order telling me it was defective and was being returned to CWL for repairs ...

It reappeared for sale within 3 weeks - and made that price you quote - sad to see someones integrity being sold for a paltrey £40 ...

Ah - you have me Sir - I wasnt differentiating twixt the original GP watches and the re-issues as COSC et al ....

I dont count the Monte Carlo really as its style is quite different - nor of course the two Ad Astra C70s ...

I did try & buy the F1 Magazine watch recently on EBay ... and I cant locate a DBR1 AM 100 ...

I do have the 3527 Ferrari & a low # HRDC ... but only the C70 BE from the original run ...

So overall I have just 13 ... heres the best of them ....
Awesome :clap:
