I went to an Omega event at my local AD last week. Of course I wore my C7 Apex. It attracted a lot of attention which is, of course, rather the point. The detail of the case and the back of the watch seemed to garner the most praise. One Omega regional manager muttered "How do they make a $10,000 watch for $3,500?" I think GPHG raised the profile of the watch and CW too. People knew what it is without me saying much except wear it. Kudos to CW for such a famous watch.

Quite simple. Less overheads.
Internet brand.
No 3rd party shops/ commissions to pay out.

Great to read that your Apex got such a reaction.
I must have missed it but "GPHG"?

Looks like it may be back in stock - at least, it seems that you can add it to the shopping basket.

More temptation...

I looked at the US site for CW. The C7 Apex is listed but then has a blue sold out bubble. I think if you add it to a shopping basket you'll be disappointed.
