You appear to have done it using the attachment feature. Thank you – the watch looks superb!
The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

That's looks great! So many different design elements on the dial. The lume on the moon paired with the smoked glass cutout are my favourite parts of it.

Thanks for sharing your photos of it.

It has some good looking aspects but unfortunately I can't get past being able to see the second moon so clearly. The smoked dial needs to be darker in my opinion, although of course this would lessen the impact of all that lume but I would see that as a good thing.

A rather marmite piece, I suspect. Not for me, personally, but I respect the intent.

Mine showed up yesterday and I absolutely love it! I think it looks even better in person.

Looks great. Congrats.
I'm deciding my first CW watch: Either C1 Moonglow or C60 Trident 316L Yellow LE.

I really like a lot of elements on this watch such as the date and the dial and it is certainly the best looking moon phase done to date by CW.

However, two things I don’t like. Firstly I don’t like seeing two moons. It’s confusing and the back...why have an exhibition back if you are putting in a vanilla movement with use a rotor change/decoration! It would just remind me that the movement was done cheaply in an expensive watch! CW can do so much better or make the corner cutting less obvious!
