@caller - I suppose what you might say is that the Bremont Supersonic is made for Concorde passengers, whereas the CW C8 M2.04 is made for the Captain, Co-pilot, Flight Engineer and ground crew.

You could, but I doubt that very much.

I like it. but its too expensive. Nice to see another example of the logo creeping back to a less disruptive position! :D

Now available to order: https://www.christopherward.com/c08-m2-04-le-1

$2,850 is a bit much for me but there is a $125 discount available.

Paid for mine yesterday. :grin:

Price is more than fair for what it is and where it sits in the hierarchy of CW watches.

Far more stylish and exclusive than an alternative 'Supersonic' offer. :wink:

It's good that we all have different opinions. Though to be fair, I'm not sure I like either of them.

I’ve just had the “ping” in my inbox with the promotional email. I’m hoping to get to the Maidenhead showroom in a few weeks, so I’ll hope to check it out then.

Well, a fool and his money are easily parted. It will certainly be a conversation piece, but otherwise, for me, and I am sure many others, it's looks awful, and no, I am not fan of the Bremont version either, but at least an official tie in with BA.

Call me what you will.

My money and I will spend it in whatever manner I see fit.

Wow! Don't sit on the fence pal!!!!

Whilst you are entitled to your opinion, I personally feel that was uncalled for.....

It would be extremely boring if we all liked the same things.

Touched a nerve I see. Is this your policy, or mod policy?

You're on a watch forum, you are expressing views and leaving little digs here and there, surely I am allowed my say as well, to express my opinion?

My policy, nothing to do with being a Moderator.

I don't appreciate being called a fool.

End of.

Strewth, that's a bit harsh. Just because you don't personally like it doesn't mean that anyone who does is a fool.

O e could say the same about many watches/collections on here, including large numbers of vintage, modern, etc etc when you can only wear one at a time and a five quid Casio will do just fine.

Just a bit personal in my humble opinion.

Well that is quite cheeky. Obviously you are entitled to your opinion but not to the point of insult.
