C65 sh21 bronze v c60 bronze

Post by willttqs » Sat Nov 02, 2019 1:35 pm

So I am waiting for c60 and have taken delivery of the c65.

One will go back, but which one?

I really like the c65 with the blue dial and looks a quality bit of kit. But it is over £700 more expensive than the c60 and I am struggling to justify this. I know it is a le and has a better watch movement but not sure these are that important.

I also think that with the c65 bronze, the sh21 struggles to be worth £400 than that too.

So I think I shall wait to both are in hand before one goes back.

IMO I would compare C65 Ombre’ Bronze vs C60 Bronze. Both are using the same standard automatic movements. The C65 SH21 LE is much more expensive for the second hand complication and in-house movement. TBH I have the C60 Bronze and I love it very much. The deep blue is so beautiful when combining with bronze minute, second and hour hands.

Its like many things especially watches - you pay more and more for marginal improvements over the cheaper option. Is it worth it? Only you can decide that. For some the CW quartz range gives them the 'same' watch at a lower price for others we see no value in the quartz. Similar applies for the SH21 I guess.
