Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m sure I’ve seen adverts from CW in the past about buying their watches for life/passing down to the next generation....
Are you not getting confused with Patek Philippe :wink:
No I think your confusing it with Rolex:

“You never own a desirable in demand Rolex Professional model, you just pass your place on the waiting list to the next generation.....” :)

You're not wrong Richard.

The cynic in me says that this could be two years.

Well it seems my OP has created some lively debate/interest which is a good thing.
Im hoping if the item was a movement part or core case element that CW would be able to address it. Thankfully that's not the case (excuse the pun), I haven't needed any operational repair and Im happily wearing a fully functional watch albeit with a chipped bezel that I was aware of as a 'feature' of this model prior to purchase.
I may not be handing this one down but I will the 2 C9s, to my son who shares the Harrison name 😊. Unless something drastic happens, any watches of value I may have will be sold off long before then if the pension fund continues to perform as it has to date 🙄🙁😊
CW's: C30, C60 Orange bezel, C9 Harrison Chrono (big blue) LE, Harrison C9 date, C70 MC, C7 Chrono.
Gone: c7, c3.
Various other brands 😊
