pretty disappointing. Certainly nothing much to catch my eye and not exactly cheap either.
Hopefully for Chris and co my view is in the minority!

Would agree to the above nothing about the designs or price point are appealing. Looks like a great tie up with LFC though.

For a start-up, albeit with lots of connections they are launching with a large collection of pieces.

I looked at this earlier, having tried very hard to keep an open mind while the pre-launch campaign was bamboozling everybody. I have to conclude that, for the moment, there is nothing that attracts me significantly.

i’m sure the football thing will find its audience. LFC fans are notoriously bonkers.

GMT. I had a lovely Trident, but had to move it on because of the sheer bulk. I rationalised that I really don’t need one, and if I did I think the current offerings from CW are both prettier and cheaper.

The chronometer has a nice movement as well as a discreet GMT subdial, but it’s all a bit too mean, moody and dark for my taste (black PVD model)

The “dress” watch is not especially inspiring.

Finally, the 303. I wanted to like this, and I’m sure it will appeal to those who have a passionate interest in the incredible history surrounding it. But not at that price for a SW200, even if it does have a sliver of aeroplane inside it.

I hope they do well, and I wish them well. Who knows, one day they might produce something that makes me sit up and take notice, but initial signs are to the contrary.

nothing to tempt me either, quite liked the look of the red dial one till I realised the LFC tie up, which I just don't get.

There has to be a diver to follow given the success of the C60. Chris will know the diver segment inside and out. Perhaps these watches will get the brand out there and when they have a reasonable base, launch a diver

There isn't much to get tbh. If it's like any other football club tie-ups, Spurs-IWC, Man U-TAG etc, the brand will get coverage on the official website, stadium hoardings, matchday programmes etc.
These will literally be viewed by billions of people. Whether it will generate significant sales for a newly established brand, who knows.
