It's different, that's for sure - but nothing wrong with that as a celebratory piece.

The aesthetic however doesn't appeal to me so it's a no.

I'd really like to see some real world pictures. Not sure why they'd use 2 different lumes (above picture shows a green date wheel), plus the numbers on the dial being printed seems an odd choice - like they were an after thought after deciding they couldn't go without numbers...

The rest is fabulous though.

I agree with Bob. Impressive, but not my cuppa.

Whilst this is not a style of watch I'd choose, I do think it's been executed very well, and for a halo piece I think it has all the right ingredients. :thumbup:

As a lume freak i love blue circle/halo. Rest of the watch not so much but then this is after meant to celebrate the movement so people who really appreciate that im sure they will like the package.

Hopefully this gives them opportunity to add extra features to their not so limited designs in the future

Not for me, but I do appreciate it for what it is - a celebration of the movement, and it does look to have been executed well.

Wow, love the design and construction of this watch.
I would love one.
But begs the question, would/could CW towers design an more affordable option to the masses.
Can someone ask the question?

Can't comment on the quality of the execution but the design is a bit fashion watch.

Not my cuppa tea, but then we can’t all like the same thing.
A bit storm like I think?

Payment in progress after a small conversion with a charming lady of the customer service (in English, the poor woman was very patient!).

It is a business which runs: photo of my wrist in October on the forum...

I've actually come around to the design of this watch and my one complaint is that they've not been bold enough. The numbers around the dial just look too timid. It seems to me they have gone bold first and foremost but then found themselves worrying what to put around the outside and wimped out with wishy washy numbers. They should have been bold with markers, numbers, whatever, but chose dull instead.

Still, a good effort.

As an aside, I found the video bloody irritating! Shame.

I’ve been fortunate to have handled one of these, IMHO it’s an exhibition piece showcasing the innovation, design and engineering quality that CW is able to deliver. However, it’s not for me as I know I wouldn’t enjoy wearing it but I’ve no doubt that there are plenty who will and with a limited edition of only 50, the watch will sellout fast.

Looks like ol CW is moving towards a skeleton watch!
