Weeellll! :-k
I have, as mentioned in my Other SOTC, 2 Seiko's (which I know that Gary [gaf1958] will approve of) and a blue dial FORMEX Essence Automatic Chronometer (Kickstarter) on their way.
However, as this is my CW SOTC, I have to confess that I do have my eye on at least a couple of other CW's at the moment :erschreckt: #-o :D

I’ll be interested to see the Seikos, but the CW boxes are beauties Nigel. It’s nice to see a bit of colour - and I don’t just mean the obvious bright ones, there’s cream and dark blue, bronze etc in addition to all the usual suspects. :thumbup:

Thanks for everyone's kind words and appreciation :thumbup:

So, if you have been reading elsewhere, I was on the look out for 3 specific watches which were "missing" from my collection.
First up was hanging on for the January sale to see what there was - I was applying one of Downer's rules with regards to "would I pay full price for this watch" and the answer was Yes. However, If one came up in the sale I'd snap it up.
It did and it was the C65 Trident GMT:
ImageC60_Trident_GMT_002 by StrapMeister, on Flickr

Then I was on the look out for the others.
Next I spotted both of them on eBay.
One was waaay over priced and thus ignored.
The other, however, I worked out the maximum that I would be willing to pay for the watch and subsequently entered a bid.
I won and it is a C9 Moonphase:
ImageC9_Moonphase by StrapMeister, on Flickr

Finally, when the January sale went "public" I checked back again and, yep, there it was.
I thought, how the hell am I going to be able to afford this!
Well, with a bit of financial juggling, and the recent sale of the C60 Trident Pro 600 Vintage, I just about managed to scrape the money together to order it.
This arrived this morning (Yes, DPD working on a Sunday) and is the C9 Worldtimer:
ImageC9_Worldtimer by StrapMeister, on Flickr

So that's my 2019 watch budget blown :oops:
I'm going to have to see about balancing the books now :?
