I got my notification that my C60 BLUE LE is shipping from the UK today. I ordered the tide strap and the bracelet. It's supposed to be in my hands by Monday (gods of DHL willing).

Had me going there for a second or 2 :D

Is the "Ward" of the name logo off-centre though?

Mine arrived today - so far I'm really happy. The tide strap colours bang on match the light blue of the dial/bezel. The strap is quite stiff but I'm certain it will loosen up with wear.

I've been nearly 25 years in the Merchant Navy and it's the best watch I have seen so far that I feel suits my career! Plus the fact that CW are supporting BLUE Marine Foundation with this watch.

Only downside is that it is my Xmas present so it being being wrapped up till the 25th.......

DHL managed to deliver the watch to the wrong house. The neighbour who got an unexpected Christmas present contacted the wife via the neighbourhood facebook group... Ooops. It was a bad evening chez moi. I had previously denied buying a watch...

Got back home. See beautiful BLUE.
Fortunately 180/500. My birthday on 18th is coming.
I informed no one at CW about my BD. Such coincidence!

Just a quick size comparison between the Super compressor (41mm) and the C60 BLUE (40mm). The BLUE looks "tiny" in comparison but in isolation it looks like a proper watch.

Received mine at the end of the week (will upload first impressions, my opinion plus more photos this week).

Was a little surprised not to see any in the thread so thought I’d add a little teaser photo, one thing to notice is that the internals (specifically the date wheel) are visible under normal/natural light, but no where near as obvious as they are in the stock photography, I’m guessing the brightness of the studio lighting makes the sapphire dial appear more transparent than it actually is (you can still see it when really looking for it but it’s by no means obvious or in your face).

I did notice that you need really strong, bright light to bring out the blue on this watch. When you do, however, it looks good.
