C65 Vintage Diver on Hirsch heavy calf strap

Post by RichM »

The quick release bracelet on the C65 makes changing straps so easy. I've put some pics over on the gallery but I've switched the C65 to a Hirsch heavy calf strap for the winter and think it looks great.

First let me say that’s a beautiful strap! It suites the watch perfectly.

Now let me also say your photos illustrate perfectly my confusion with the blue CW uses for its vintage inspired watches. The blue as shown in the first pic doesn’t do it for me. But in that last pic...I love it! It looks darker and almost navy. And the middle pic appears to split the difference between the two.

I guess it’s simply impossible to fully capture this blue in a photo and that it has to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated.

^^^ Thank you.

The top photo is in direct sunlight and really lights up the blue.

It's definitely more of a navy when out of the sun like this...

... but for me the change in shade is the most appealing part. I'm assuming the black dial has less variation in the light.

I'm going to keep it on the Hirsch strap for a long while I think.

^^^ Now that dial sparkles more than mine! It looks great and just shows how it changes according to the light.
