The C1 Apex sounds like a winner to me... fingers crossed for more news during 2021

Looks like I’ve struck a chord with this subject. Let’s get the CW dress watch movement going!
I've banged on about this before on this forum, but what I think would go down a treat would be a sports/dress watch.
Suitable for the boardroom and the swimming pool.
In other words, a 38/40mm CW version of the Aqua Terra.

The idea has its merits and would certainly fill what appears to be a gap in the collection. Nice sort of size too. I should keep banging the drum if I were you. I think something like that would be very popular.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

I think it was Frank who did a mock up of what was essentially a Mk 3 Trident without a dive bezel. It fits the bill perfectly for what you describe.

Thanks.
Reading some posts I believe there is enough interest and a market for this kind of watch.
My money is waiting for them.

The C2/C20 was a nice design and surprised it was dropped from the range.

It was nice. C2 Quartz was retired in 2011 and the C20 Auto in 2012.

Did you know about CW back then or have you just seen them recently on the forum or the CW Archive pages?

You speak from good experience, then. What other CWs have you owned?
