It's not for me but it looks like a nice addition to the line.
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth


2 More CW's on the short list!

Curious if the price point will be inline with the C60 Elite....

Thanks for posting the links Scooter and Chris.

The C60 Sapphire looks quite appealing from that limited view, I will be interested to see more photos on the release tomorrow.

Price I'm assuming well into 4 figure territory although I would expect a voucher to accompany the Loupe issue.

The main concern would be the potential height of the watch with the display back, if it gets into Apex 15.5mm territory then that might be a bit too large for me on a 42mm case (which I'd assume this will be).

Interesting watch indeed. Would be good to appreciate it in person.

Cringe-worthy voice over though. If it is trying to offer some humor I am not sure it works at least for me anyway. If anything it detracts from taking the watch or brand seriously as we rightly should. You could still deliver that message in a clear way, even using the same dialogue without the need of turning up the accent.

Maybe others like what looks like the advertisement though?

I'll reserve judgement until i see the broadcast version, but I'd agree with you on the voice over from what i've seen. I do hope the final version is better than that shown in the links

I think it looks great, and it really didn't think I'd like it.

The voiceover is the very definition of naff though

Diameter: 40mm, Height: 12.95mm, Weight: 83g - £795 on strap, £895 on bracelet - Preorder for early May.

From CW: It takes 40 separate processes to make the see-through sapphire dial of the new C60 Sapphire. A procedure that delivers a material that’s not only beautiful and scratch-resistant but also incredibly thin (0.6mm thickness). Using lab-grown sapphire on the dial not only lets you see the workings of the movement but gives you a flash of colour every time you look at the watch.

I like the looks of it personally. The translucent blue makes it very unique, and very much unlike other CW offerings. I like that the front of the movement is mostly covered by plates. It doesn’t look gaudy at all. And it’s 40mm! Perfect size.

I like it, from the photos anyway, best size for me and a reasonable price. It's not been mentioned anyway here - is it an LE or a full addition to the CW portfolio?
Any idea of WR ?

It's a regular model so not an LE. Water resistance is 600m.

I think they've got me! That's something very different.
I could buy that at RRP and be happy (although voucher would be nice :D ).

40mm, sapphire dial differentiates it from other divers and I love the blue/teal colours with the splash of orange.
Similar colours to the Aquis Clean Ocean and the soon to be released 39.5 oceanic blue model.

I'm really excited about this one :clap:

Well that looks like my hurdles of price, case height and diameter have all been overcome....darn I need to find a good reason not to buy one now!
