Thanks. We'll keep the actual purchase price between us LOL. Might not seem as classy if anyone saw what I paid for it :lol:

No matter if it looks that good. Geckota do a range of good quality mesh bracelets at great prices - i’m Not sure of the need to spend a fortune on mesh, though others may disagree...

I thought that might be the combination you'd go for Gareth. :wink:

Looks really good.

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.

Keep forgetting to showcase this - but its not that memorable really ...

C11 Chrono HRDC

CW C11 MSL HRDC 2013.jpg
I disagree, love the C11, alas probably a little too large for me.
Nuthin wrong with the C11 - preferably the Makaira or the original MSL - just dislike this rendition in Black & the HRDC logo ....

Thanks Laird :thumbup:
Yeah took a chance on this one as it looked in excellent condition - so many are beaten up especially the bezel.
Checked the CW Archive pricing information and then decided on a figure that I was prepared to pay (last one sold went for c£750 and wasn't in as good a condition).
Banged in a last minute bid and won.
Turned up yesterday and it's in mint condition - doesn't look as if it's been "worn 10 times" as mentioned in the ad.
I'm not keen on the brown and red strap on it so, I've temporarily put a black/blue dot/white stitch C70 strap on and have ordered a special custom made strap - all will be revealed when it arrives in a couple of weeks time.

Overall though, I'm VERY pleased :D

Yeah I was very tempted by the AM100 that's currently on eBay (was a backup if I hadn't won this one), however, after reflection, I'm not really one for bits in the back of cases and then paying a premium for it. Besides the DBR1 came up/finished first.
I reckon someone will get a bargain on that AM100 based on the fact that it's RRP was £1950 new and it does look like New.
It'll be interesting to see how much it does go for.
