I wonder how many of these number 1's will end up on eBay?

It would be nice to think that they will find new homes in CW enthusiasts hands, but such is the world these days....
Ideal number of watches in your collection = current number of watches + 1...

I suspect none - I doubt very much there'd be any money to be made.

Quite right; not at the prices currently being offered.

A couple of 'slow starters' are now making headway and the C80 Sector is now up @ £1,000 :thumbup:

Indeed - power to the bidders! It will be interesting to see which (if any) make an appearance on the forum. :D

Do you think Mortis has crumbled ? :lol: . Good to see the much maligned C80 is currently leading the way :thumbup: .

Excellent news.

Chuffed to bits that the Sector was the star of the Auction by a country mile.

Looks like at least one of our Forum chums was successful too.

The Charity must be rather happy as well.
