99.9% of all Le Mans related merchant has me by the gonads but this is sadly the 0.1% for me.

Whatever happened to these? Did they sell out? Absolutely love the look and was always secretly hoping CW would release a non-LE version without the metal at a lower price point (or that they didn't sell out and would be offered for cheaper as time passes). Any chance of that happening?

Sorry for all the questions. :)

Rather late to the Party but... :oops:
I like it!
I'm not a fan of the "new logo" because of the lop-sided balance on the dial, however, in this case, with "Automatic" being a 3, it is, imo, better balanced (albeit not perfect).

Love the Power Reserve indicator.

As for price, ouch!
...but, I can see the justification in price based on, generally speaking, the increase in CW products quality over the last year or so.

As for the name, oh dear!
Haven't they learned from the C90 "Becketts".
Also haven't CW already done a C70 D-type?
Why can't they call it the C70/C90 Vintage Rally (or similar)?
C60 FLE (Red JAG); C60 Trident 316L LE (Orange, Blue/Orange, Yellow, Black/Yellow)
C65 Trident Bronze SH21 LE; C65 Trident GMT.
C9 Moonphase; C9 Pulsometer LE; C8 MkII.

Very, very nice. But VERY expensive. This is approaching Omega, Tudor territory. It's asking a lot to compete with them.
