On a side note...since I'm way out here in Cali, I got one of the complimentary Loupe Magazine copies. Is there a way to subscribe. I may have missed it, but I can't find the link or order form.

There's a link at the foot of this page on the CW website.

Anyway, the letter refers to new releases:
C65 Super Compressor
C60 Lympstone - MOD licensed tribute to the Royal Marines and their training base in Devon
C60 Trident mk3 Bronze in "everyman" 40mm size
I'm really intrigued by the C65 Super Compressor. I'm inclined to assume this will be a very vintage inspired design. I wonder if it will be a true super compressor case, or if super compressor is just referring to a dual crown design with internal bezel.
A "true" version :thumbup:
A “Super Compressor case“ is IIRC a specific trademarked name for specific case designs made by one case manufacturer.

Be interesting to read how CW describes it.

Maybe the trademark has lapsed...

That’s exactly why I asked. It’s a C65 model, with C65 being a reference to the case design. So has it been modified into a super compressor style case? Or is is a whole new case design, and if it is, why call it a C65 then?

I have seen the Super Compressor and it is wonderful !!
I was lucky to see and hold a prototype in February at the Showroom.
Ferg, you’ve seen it. Can you enlighten us?

Those questions, by the way, reflect curiosity not criticism. I guess all we can do is wait with bated breath to find out!

It appears that because of a tech/communications glitch that some mailers/emails went out too soon so the cat is now out of the bag.

Yes there will be some new releases that will be up on the website on the 28th. The new Loupe should start landing on /about the 28th. The voucher code and further details/links will not be activated until then as well.

Cw is investigating why these mailers went out to soon.

Consider this topic a teaser for what is to come!! :D
Actually that's quite canny I think. The momentum has gone out of the last sale and what better way to communicate with us who might quietly refer to ourselves as fan boys / the core audience? Fancy trying to keep a cat in a bag :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well it should all be officially released this Friday and on the website per Kip so it will be good to see the new models.

Sneak peek at the Super compressor case.

It looks to be a new cushion style case design as opposed to a reworking of the C65.

Love the look of that Trident Mk 3 in bronze. A great size, and the ombre dial looks ace.
I'm a tool watch kinda guy; bezels and pushers for me. I used to dive, I used to climb mountains. I spend too much time looking at watches.

Arghhhhhhhh!!! That super compressor looks fantastic and even has the word mark at 12 - but no date so, unfortunately, not for me. It does look the business though in both colours.

Not sure if I should've actually posted those as they're a day early so mods can remove if needed.

They're in the 'new releases' section on the public website from what I can see anyway mate so can't see an issue.

It does look good but word mark at 9 so another no from me - both others, the Super Compressor and Lympstone, have it at 12. Seems its part of the CW design now - no date, word mark at 12; date, word mark at 9.
