Very surprised to read Mike France saying that the Moonglow has "actually become our best-selling single watch”. I know there are a crazy number of versions of the C60 but still surprised. Perhaps he's talking specifically about a timeframe since it was released?
If he does mean that the moonglow is there outright best seller then i suggest its a bit of marketing guff for 'please buy this watch as we want you to think that everyone else thinks its amazing' same as when then put the slow selling 316 models in the best selling bit on the website even though they were limited in production numbers.
Agreed! Ridiculous.

That C60 Chrono does look awesome though! Hope its not just PVD.

Think he's hoping it will also be available in steel (non PVD).

I've just looked at the pic in my copy of Loupe and it looks steel case with ceramic bezel to me??

I know it's free, but given CW is a bit of a watch enthusiasts brand, does anybody else find the amount of non-watch related content slightly frustrating?
Not really. I have elective hyperopia. :D

That's exactly what I thought but I've not been too observant recently (I didn't see the doors or hinges on Downer's CD storage) hence my question.

However reading through Loupe yesterday in the article about the C65 GMT Worldtimer it states " The C65 Trident range riffs entertainingly on the watches of the period.....and, coming soon, a striking chronograph variation that can't help but make you smile"

So there will be a C65 Chrono as well as the C60 Chrono? That's how I read it.
