Logo centered at 12, SH21, 41mm - love it.

Too busy a dial for me to be honest.
I’ve got the regular C65 and it looks just perfect. No date too and, which has been said, wouldn’t have too many SH21 powered watches as not sure how future proof they are. Current CS/QC probs also.

And the logo? Well it doesn’t bother me. Not a deal breaker. Appreciate that it would please a few here which is good. Personally I wouldn’t care if it was at 12, 9, 6 or 8. :lol:

There is something about the C65 range that just doesn't do it for me and this continues the tradition I'm afraid - credit card safe again... :D

Sometimes the sensible approach as opposed to the disruptive one is just so...well right.

^^^^ But isn’t it only at 12 because it can’t go at 9 or 3?
Or am I missing something?
Think the twin flags are better there tbh.

Kip answered that one yesterday, Paul.

If I remember correctly the protocol was for the logo to be at 9 unless it did not work with the design/dial layout. The layout is determined by the chosen movement.

Forgive me for any misunderstanding.

My comment was a general one, not specific to this model.

Gotcha. :thumbup:
Dunno about disruptive though. Think it looks good at 9.
Just think Christopher is too long for a two line logo at the top. The old logos look fine at 12.

Hello

Christopher Ward London and their advertising agency claim the credit for the word 'disruptive' not me.

It was all a long time ago.

Usually the logo looks more balanced at 12, but with the sub dials only at 6 and 9 it doesn't help.

Bit of a mish mash of ideas and doesn't work at all.

The whole package(other than the price) appeals to me...but then, I collect Ebels.. :problem:
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a lowcut dress that zips up the side..neither gets the love that they deserve..

White numerals and markers throughout and a colour coded date window and it would have been near perfect. The date window in black looks an aberration.

The new C65 Military range throws this out of the window completely. Did the MoD override CW and tell them to “Put it back?”
