4 days with the Sapphire

It’s been 4 days and it hasn’t left my wrist.
In person, the dial, and whole watch for that matter, is excellent. The dial brings a superb depth and detail to the face.
It’s really hard to capture the lustre and detail in pic but here’s a few anyway
Cheers

Glad to see some real world pictures of this and it's looking really good.

I want one very much, but am quite a poor person

Thank you for sharing, the watch looks amazing. I'm secretly hoping CW is working on a blue PVD model of this watch, or a GMT function, or dare we dream for both.

Thank you for sharing. I am on the fence on this one. If I could justify it I would definitely purchase it. I am in the midst of purchasing a watch for my 50th birthday in June and this one is on the list. My hesitation is the 40mm size. I have 7.5 inch wrists and that size tends to look small on me. I prefer 41 or 43mm. How does it wear on your wrist? I try not to be overly critical of measurement on paper but pay more attention to how it wears...

Thanks

I do very much like the sapphire dial, as Toph said, adding depth and detail to the face.

I also really like the bezel. The three finishes on it makes it stand out. It would be great if CW did the same on some future models.

I too am wondering if CW will produce a 42mm variant.

My wrist is a fraction just under 7 and it wears well. I’m fortunate I can wear a variety of sizes. Anything above 7.25 it may start too look small, but again that depends on personal preference

Looks great. Great post. Call me a big fan. As it stands I feel I'd have to flip my C65 hand-winder to justify it and I like it so much it certainly doesn't need flipping. Wrist check "oh there it is!".
Perhaps with time and improved global circumstances I will be more comfortable with a pair of blue CW "sporty-divers". :)

Great to see some real world photos of the dial. For me it is a really good compromise between a regular dial and a full skeleton (which I have never really been sold on).

I just got this one in the other day, it’s a fantastic watch for my 6.75” wrists, and my first actual diver style watch.
The lume is ok, it’s bright initially but tends to fade out very quickly.
