C3 Grand Tourer

Post by JohnnyMac »

Does anyone know why my C3 Grand Tourer has 'Swiss Made' written on the dial (whereas currently, on the CW website, these words are noticably absent)?

The green dial and Morgan edition both say Swiss Made (flanking the date window) while the white dial does not. Very interesting!

I'm not sure whether they are photographed, or CAD rendered, but I assume it's just a mistake with the product pics.

If you Google the C3 GT, you'll find all the real-world pics of the white/blue dials feature "Swiss Made" on the dial :thumbup:

I assume so. The photo of the white one on the CW Archive is missing the wording. The ones we post on there are official CW photos.

As you say it's there in the Reference Gallery photos.
