You will see plenty of photos in a couple weeks. Release is due May 1, but may be some photos from GTG on the 27th.

Did the forum admin crew not get a pre-release version to check out and share pictures of early? I thought that was happening?

Think I can spot the quick release pin on bracelet.
Hopefully will be on the C65 bracelets too. :thumbup:

Case side profiles look more like a C65 than C60, lovely!

I still don't get why screws are not being used. I know that Chris said in the last GTG that the cost of development was too high, but I have a cheap cr@p Alpha that cost me less than £50 that has screws that work perfectly fine. Also, the refusal for half links in the bracelet to achieve a fit where you are in the middle of the ratchet in order to either tighten or loosen, is a mistake in my opinion. I'm a big fan of CW bracelets anyway, but I think these couple of things could have really took it to the next level.

I've always wondered what is the huge benefit with screws? The screws I had on the aftermarket bracelet for my SKX would occasionally loosen whereas I've never had issues with pin/collar. In addition to that the bracelets I've seen with screws in the used market always look stripped to some degree marring the new appearance. I understand they may not have used proper screwdrivers causing this but screws certainly don't seem to mitigate the risk of damage.

Ultimately don't you size one time and that's it?

Is it simply because other high end manufacturer's use screws so CW should follow suit?

I dont get it either. Nothing wrong with pin and collars imo.

Its just my personal preference that I prefer the look of screws thats all. The biggest improvement they could make is supplying a half link, but Mr Ward himself denies that it would be of any benefit

Think a half link would be very helpful, a step forward agree.
Not too worried about the pins/screws as long as the bracelet doesn’t fall apart. 👍

Does the ratchet adjustment not make the need for a half link redundant?
