Where are all the CW Henley's ?
Can't find a photo of my old one, but they are a very nice watch.

That's the one you want right there....pre-owned C15 Henley.

A "want to buy ad" will produce one in due time. Allows you to test out the square dial without the huge financial commitment and you know about CW quality already!

So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said "Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."

Vintage watches, e.g. from Longines, Hamilton or Gruen? There are quite a few "vertically long rectangle" styles that won't look too small on a men's wrist.

This is my Gruen Curvex (old pic) though it will look a little shorter on a male wrist. On mine, it stretches across the whole length of my wrist (and would be longer if it weren't a curved case).

If you could consider a previously loved wrist offering, I suggest you consider Ebel's LaCaree...fine examples can still be found on the 'bay...

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a lowcut dress that zips up the side..neither gets the love that they deserve..

Mildly fascinated is the phrase to use. I had my eye on a chronograph of theirs awhile ago, in part because it had a Monaco vibe to it. Very interesting watches.

Still no floated boats here. Waiting with interest to see if anything raises even a flicker of interest :lol:

Another option is to hunt down a C11 MSL

Image

Still revert to mine as my “daily” option. Love it.

Or the Diver-focussed C11 Makaira in one of the various colour / material options.

The C11 MSL is a great call....kind of a hybrid and more likely a timeless style

I’ve always liked the dial on the C11. So very...what’s the word?..

...ah, yes: circular. :D
