Sad to hear about your car! Although it never happened to me, sometimes repairs eventually appear to be cheaper than the first projection. Or is the repair already finished and paid?

A year later, and an easy MoT on the car, I finally got the watch! Encouraged by a discount code, my C65 arrived this week. I've put it on a nato strap for now until I've resized the bracelet.

It was well worth the wait.

^^ Thank you. I must remember to update my profile to 2 CW watches!

The quick release bracelet strap is brilliant. I can see myself changing straps as often as I change my mood (all the time in this lockdown!).

Great to hear the happy outcome. Sometimes the wait makes the outcome that bit sweeter! Enjoy.

Looks lovely! Every time I see one of these I keep thinking about getting one... Must behave!
Is that the WIAA strap? If so, the Kingfisher on my wrist says Snap! :)

Thanks! It is the WIAA one! It was inexpensive and has the quick release pins. I think it goes really well with the C65.
