Interesting in comparison with the CI PR - I think the CW looks more classy and worth a few extra £s

I like the dial indices and hands, particularly the champagne dial which wouldn't be a normal choice for me. The PR is IMO slightly less elegant than the CW but still very well done. My biggest gripe would be the case, the heavy shoulders with brushed finish look bulky and out of keeping with the elegance of the rest of the watch. The Hamilton face in a CW case would be a very nice marriage.

Dial colour reminds me of my 'champagne' coloured Fiesta 1.4 Gia.

I miss champagne coloured cars!! The Austin Princess was a particular fave.

That's a nice Hamilton, very tasteful apart from the red on the PR. RED? On a dress watch?
