Clach77.....What are your thoughts/mini review after wearing it for three days straight?

Certainly must be a watch that you receive a lot of comments from folks who see it live....it's so striking.
I’ve not had a chance to wear it for one reason or another. I have not had a watch on all weekend, until now. I’ll post more when I can. :thumbup:

Touch of orange on second hand works together with the highlight in bezel, but that’s it.

Great number though, congrats.
Each to their own Brian and in not liking the "huge amount of orange on the left hand side" (or red on the C70 Apex) I guess you're missing out on part of the signature look of the Apex.

Congratulations Alex.

Whilst absolutely not for me, I can appreciate the attraction, particularly the illustrious tie in.

Wear it in rude health.

You’re right Guy, but both dials a little busy for my tastes. I much prefer the simple lines of the C60 600s

By the way!, you through me about the C70. I had to check and it’s the C7, or were you checking I was paying attention.

And of course you spotted the auto type error, should be “threw” not “through “

Thank you, it really is.

I’m starting to think that if I’m going to keep wearing it as much as I am, some of the collection will be heading out of the door. It’s not been off my wrist much at all.

Thanks for posting some really great pics :clap:

Seems like the blue lightens / darkens quite a bit depending on when it catches the light.

I had the chance to talk to an Armin Strom Master Watchmaker this weekend (WatchTime NYC). He had never seen a C60 Apex fully assembled. He recognised their work on the watch face immediately but was unaware of just how much of their input was also in the back of the watch. I think he liked it, but I would say that wouldn't I?

I set my Apex last week when the clocks changed. I’ve checked now at it’s 1.5 seconds out. I can live with that. :clap:

That's a great looking watch which initially I didn't warm to but the more I see "real" photos of it the more I'm liking. Congratulations on getting no 1!
