I think it does look better with a more pronounced twin flags at 12. One of the reasons I like the Ombre so much. The finish on the dial make the flags stand out a lot more adding balance.

Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 10 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

If Rolex wasn't a famous watch maker, and was just a chinese clone maker, Rolex would come in for loads of criticism. I don't mind the CW text. I think the font looks very modern, and goes very well with a well finished modern watch.
I read somewhere that the current CWL font is the same as used in the London Underground, I like details like that.

Writing "Christopher Ward" on the watch face is polarizing. While others don't mind it, this writing put me off buying the CW. If more watch faces only used the twin flags as per the C7 Rapide models, CW would have got my money!

And I agree with rkovars about the more pronounced twin flags at 12. It's the best CW logo I've seen :thumbup:
