I've been half looking out for a used C11 Makaira to replace an Extreme model I sold a couple of years ago, which I have always regretted letting go.

I've also been looking a the C7 Hornet on the CW website for quite a while as I really like the orange on black look.

So when I saw Guy's post about the FDU1 model I couldn't resist - effectively two watches for the price of one!

I asked if it could come on the orange/black hybrid. This is one of the older 'thicker' hybrids, but it hasn't bothered me on my Apex. I know someone was asking about the hybrids on another post, so it does look like CW are still using up the old stock.

Ordered Thursday lunchtime, delivered Saturday morning and couldn't be happier with it.

Thanks to Guy for your help on this!
What Guy posted looks good, but you’ve really hit a winner with the black and orange strap. Great looking watches. :thumbup:
Trying not to buy any more watches...

It's a good looking watch and I do like it - though not really a fan of the earlier branding.

But when and where could you wear it? Clearly linked, by the crest on the watch face to a specific military unit - unless I had served in, or been attached to that unit I just wouldn't be seen in public with this on my wrist.

I really liked it, but had just bought several other watches, so could not justify it. i would not be worried about the logo, how many people do you really look that closely at your wrist? it is a bit like buying a CWC watch or something.
