I’m thinking I would like something different in my collection, to shake it up a bit. Would like something Square/oblong, reaching out to the group for any suggestions CW or otherwise. I keep hanging my nose over the retro style RADO NCC 101.
Any suggestions? Sensibly price as is the CW range🤗

Almost, a c15 came on eBay but I wasn’t passionate enough for the white.

The rado Manhattan 1965 would be my go to choice but out of my price range for new and nothing on the second hand market.

But I’ve just gone and bought myself c11 makaira 500 pro, I’ve always liked them and one came up and I got a bit stupid and bought it.

Well it’s kind of square 😂

There's always a C20 Lido or C15 Henley from the discontinued CW range that fit the bill.

Another option is to hunt down a C11 MSL

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

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

I ended up buying a c11 blue hands awaiting its arrival
