Is this a good price

Post by Gasman » Fri Aug 30, 2019 3:28 pm

I am new to CW so don’t really know the prices. I have been offered a C11 with a full set for £325, is this a reasonable price? I know somebody is going to say if you like it then just buy it, but I don’t want to spend money if I don’t need to. :?

Yes, agree with Laird - there is not enough info there to give you a decent answer. The C11 range was vast and wide, ranging from a Titanium diver at original price of £1150ish, down to the C11 Quartz Chrono that I believe was £299 when it was released.

Love to help here, just need the exact model details.

.... and a strange beast - originally sort of Aviation, then morphed into a Diver !

I assume you're talking about the standard C11 MSL Automatic but as long at it is in excellent condition, it's a decent price regardless of model. Perhaps a steal if they are offering you the C11 makaira, elite, or extreme.

Mk I. Stainless steel auto with white hands and numerals on black face? If so that's an ok price of it is in really nice condition and complete.
Cheers now

Sold my C11 MK1 too quickly back in the day.....with the outstanding AR on that watch and the clean look I'm having some feelings of regret. Cannot comment on if the pre-owned price is ballpark, but can tell you its a great watch!

There has been A LOT of work put into updating that archive. I applaud those who spent the effort doing it. :clap:
