I have seen a few posts elsewhere about people bagging a NN Dartmouth today. Seems they appeared and went a couple of times.

Looks like I might be 1 of those people, getting 1 on the bracelet. Just been notified that it's being delivered tomorrow.
I'm keeping an open mind on it at the moment whether it'll stay or not - I like it in the photos particularly as the name is at 12, I'm after a blue dial watch (but can't afford an Omega AT) but I'm not sure whether it looks a bit busy with all those lines on the dial and bezel.

I liked it when I tried one on at the London GTG. Thought it would be a reasonable buy as a NN.

Well, the Dartmouth was delivered today so a good turn-around by CW.

I've viewed it while still in the box with the clear plastic cover still on the dial. The case and bracelet look a lovely design and quality build. The size is great - Overall very nice. Unfortunately my thoughts re. the dial and bezel are what I wrote above. For my taste there's a bit too much going on, too many line markers that for me somehow mean the bezel doesn't gel with the dial. So I will be requesting a return package for a refund - shame as it was a great price and the C65 case is definitely an attractive item.

So I'm still on the look-out for a blue dialled watch. Maybe the 2020 CW chronos will provide something.

^^^^^ A shame it hasn’t worked out for you with the C65.

I sort of get where you are coming from with the bezel markings. I think I would get used to them, particularly as I have spent years looking at the classic Seamaster 300 models and thinking I need to buy one!

I agree with your comments about the case on the C65.

The NN Dartmouth I bought last week has been deposited at a PO this morning for return to CW today via their RM returns package so there may be a Dartmouth turning up on the NN soon. It looked to be in great condition although I didn't remove the plastic cover from the dial or check the whole bracelet. If you like the design then at £626.50 on the bracelet it'll be great value if/when it re-appears.

Got word yesterday that my NN Trident Mk3 will be here tomorrow. Was going to post a question as to shipping times folks have experienced but the tracking info beat me to it. Excited to have my first CW in hand.

Now I just need to stop looking at the website before I buy something else.

Quite a few 60% off appeared, and disappeared just as quickly :lol:

Disappeared so quickly, hard to keep track.

A couple of auto C7s and some bronze C60s, I think. And a couple of others I seriously considered too slowly.
