316 Limited vs C60 mk3

Post by crakkajakka15 » Fri Jun 28, 2019 3:18 am

Hey all I'm new to the forum but not to the watch game. I have a few Sinn/Omega/Tudors in the collection but I'm in the market for a new diver and I recently had a chance to check out a co workers Christoper Ward moonphase and I was impressed to say the least.

I'm between the new C60 MK3 and the 316 limited black and yellow.

My question is does anyone have any photos of the black and yellow that are not stock photos from their site? Im worried that the black dial isnt as inky black in real life as the stock photos make it out to be.

Also am I overlooking and new MK3 features that would make the C60 MK3 a better choice over the 316 Limited?

I'm sure a quick hunt around the forum will find some pics, but for the time being, here are a couple of pics of my Black and Yellow 316L

Here are some member photos of the 316L in the Reference Gallery. Unfortunately no black. You can do a search for "C60 316L Black" and some photos will come up.

Wish these were on the used market but they seem to be a new model?

It was released in January of this year. An LE of 316 pieces. Still available new.

Keep an eye on the clearance section on CW website. When it was ‘restocked’ last week there was one Nearly New at 30% off on soft touch leather strap, so another may pop up at some point. Great choice by the way :thumbup:

Hi
I just viewed the images of your new purchase, and your new watch looks superb!
I’ve got the limited edition yellow dial C60 with the brushed stainless bezel and I love it.
