Top notch Alex.

Looks great on the bracelet

I'm hopefully getting mine, also on bracelet, early next week and I have a rather special blue / orange strap ready for it too.

That's how I wear my C7 Apex. It makes the strap a bit uncomfortable but the HD widescreen view of the mechanism in action is just so hypnotically fascinating that I've lost several days to it already.

It's possible of course that I'm joking. :oops: :thumbup:

Guy, you'll have to tell me where to get the secret strap. Mine's coming on the bracelet and I've been hunting around for a strap that would suit the C60 Apex but haven't seen one yet. I could of course wait for the modified hybrid strap that's due to appear next year.

I wasn’t a massive fan of this on the blue strap and thought it looked a little gimmicky with this colour palate. I probably would like a more muted version with black, greys and white with brushed and polished surfaces.

However, on the bracelet it offers more balance and looks so much better and the 2 tone lume and date feature is excellent.

Enjoy the watch!
I wonder if it looks better on the bracelet because of the amount of silver in the dial? I’d like to try it on the blue and orange hybrid strap that I have, but for when I’d want to wear the Apex, it’s more use to me on a bracelet. And no one needs two. :lol:

It looks premium on the bracelet and befitting of the price. I guess different straps for different uses - But I doubt that you will be taking it diving though despite the 300m water resistance!

Guess it won't be a secret strap if I tell you. Image

It's an 'Oceanic' in genuine Ostrich Leg skin from Mans Area in Spain.

I bought it for my C60 Trident Elite 1000, but never got around to using it. Instead, I sold the Elite 1000 to part fund the Apex.

Beautiful , I love it. Well done and wear in good health.

To your point below ..it’s a titanium case is it not? It’s lighter than steel :)

Thank you Richard. I’m looking at it now and it feels lighter than my C60 MkII COSCs. Not a bad thing, but a surprise.

My apologies, You are right. I was thinking of the COSC diver and just presumed that this was the same

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 seem to be in a minority as I love the bracelet and bezel, but that dial is a turn off. Especially the huge amount of orange on the left hand side.

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

Great number though, congrats.
