CW are not replacing the C7 range, 1 reason being that the case is too expensive to produce.Those that appear in the Daily Specials, NN, on the SC or on ebay will be your only opportunities to buy now.
I like this watch a lot, and if they are discontinuing the C7 range, I think I might pick up an extra one of these as a backup if it pops up again on the daily sale. :)

It's beautiful weather today in the UK, which has me looking forward to watching cricket again. I have tickets for England v Australia at T20 in July, although it is looking highly unlikely that will go ahead. I bought a selection of straps to wear, this one I thought would be good for a summer of cricket:

I have tickets for Headingley but no chance of it being on, unfortunately. I'm missing my live sport big time! :(

I'd got tickets for Headingley too. I'd bought tickets in the new stand as a treat for my wife's birthday. Trying to look on the bright side that I'll be getting a decent sum of money back (I could have bought 2 C7's in the sale if I'd known!).

The Emerald Stand looks fantastic when I’ve walked past it when at Headingley for the rugby. Should be a great view behind the bowlers arm too, much like Radcliffe Road End at Trent Bridge. I can do you a good deal on a C7 Auto Chrono! :D

Took some pictures with more of the new straps I ordered from CheapestNatoStraps. One is a ducati nato with black fittings, and the other is a paratrooper strap. I'd ordered these with the idea that I would be cycling to work wearing this watch, that seems a long way off.
Finding these better than the canvas webbing strap, which is a bit big for me to wear comfortably. With hindsight I should have gone for the leather strap option as that would have been thinner.
