The C900 single pusher blew me away when it came out. I think the style is timeless and am really disappointed to see it gone. I think CW had a great opportunity to build legacy around the styling.

Further derailing the main topic, looking at the Magalogue is like seeing an old friend you haven't spoken to in some time. That was the period that made me fall in love with CW and spoke to me the most. I own(ed) quite a few of those pieces and see several others I wish I would've purchased. The C900 and C20 were fantastic designs that I'm kicking myself for passing on.

It occurred to me today that maybe Covid-19 might be to blame for some of this. Obviously Covid-19 was a massive disruption. With 2020 announced as the year of the chronograph, maybe there was a new C7 line up in the works?

This is clearly speculative thinking, but it does make one wonder. The C65 case is ready to go in a chronograph guise. Maybe a dial inspired by the C65 AM GT LE fitted to all the innards of the C65 Chrono, marketed as a new C7 - called the C75 perhaps, to reflect its evolution along C65 lines?

One can dream...

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 enjoyed flicking through the Magalogue (why that name though?).

The C7 Bluebird was the model which first attracted me to CW and the back page may well have been the ad I saw way back when, in one of the charter airline in-flight magazines. Ahhh, nostalgia....

Part magazine, part catalogue.

Probably sounds a bit better than Catazine, which sounds like something you might find on the Reeperbahn.

Thanks for the explanation. All I could think of was the recent slogan for a political party....

It was interesting to see how much CW watches cost in those days.

^^^ Sometimes threads wander off the beaten track a little. It IS allowed on the forum.

I just thought the magalogue might interest a few people. No worries. :D
