This would also be worth considering - bit more expensive than the NN but it looks a good price as it a LE, COSC etc. (No connection to seller)

Alternatively, you may want to try calling or emailing CW. Given all of the NNs have gone this morning, it suggests that they’ve been withdrawn from sale rather than sold. You might just ask the question whether they would sell you it at the NN price. Nothing to lose!

Thanks Guys,

I plan to go for an NN as I love the deeper blue, however I'd take black too so whatever pops up it is going to have my name on it LOL

I saw it and was debating pulling the trigger but, it is the older paler blue, and, more important by banker (AKA my better half) thinks I should be patient and get the full buying experience. I waited this long. I will probably get one in the sale if not a NN one :-)

That's fair enough.

As far as I'm aware though, that is the only blue new logo C60, there isn't a darker one.
The older, brighter royal blue only came in old logo flavour which I owned up until recent times.

Someone will come along and correct me if I'm wrong.

No indeed you are quite correct, it is indeed the new one, and I need to do some soul searching, does anyone know if the guarantee transfer for the movement?

No problem to transfer the guarantee, best if you can get the original order number (invoice) but the CoA should be enough.

Yeh, the warranty card which is at the back of the manual will be sufficient.

That's all I had when returning my first C60 to be looked at by CW.

Thanks guys,

I have managed to get a C60 Pro 600 ceramic old logo from an anal retentive collector at a fantastic price and am overjoyed. I plan to sell a couple of other bits and pieces and push the blue one out to my birthday as nobody should only own one CW right????

Pics will follow at Christmas Ho Ho Hoooo,,,,

Well done Derek on getting your first CW.

And yes nobody should only own one, life's too short so don't deprive yourself :)

Top notch Derek.

Will we be able to see pictures of your C60 Trident Pro 600 before Christmas, or does it have to be put away?

For once in my life, it will be put away however I will put up a couple of advert pics before my own Wristie shot as I am really incredibly excited.

In fact here it is,,, and if you remember my use of description "anal retentive" I suspect this picture explains it all better than I can.
