CW C1 Moonglow

Post by Czechia » Mon May 20, 2019 10:20 am

I'm surprised not to see a thread on this yet!
It's one of the first articles in the current CW Loupe magazine - link can be found here to the online version.

Page 6 - article called "Do the Bright Thing"

https://www.christopherward.co.uk/loupe13

CW are set to release a new model C1 Moonglow on July 20th - and it's caught my eye due to the fact I was planning to purchase the C1 Grand Malvern Moonphase later this year, once I completed my CIMA exams as a reward to myself. However, the introduction of the Moonglow throws up a few questions - will it replace the current C1 Grand Malvern Moonphase? Or will it compliment it?

What are the price points and more importantly, when can we see this new C1 Moonglow in all of it's glory? :)

The article in Loupe shows a glimpse of the new C1 Moonglow and I'm not wow-ed by it. The dial looks like new C65 VIntage range, I much prefer the more classic and elegant look of the current C1 Grand Malvern collection. But again it's difficult to judge based on the picture in Loupe.

At this stage, I'm still preferring the choice of the current C1 Moonphase over the Moonglow.

Thoughts?

Ha! I think that shows that CW business model is creating great value, if accountants are big fans of their brand ;)

Yes, true I guess no one appreciates vfm more than an accountant.

Back to the Moonglow, I recall reading that there may be one to view at the GTG in London on 31 August. I'm going to that myself so looking forward to seeing that plus a few other new models hopefully.

This is the one I will be looking most closely at.

It is seven months since I bought a watch, and I haven’t really felt any motivation to do so. I am still telling myself that possibly, maybe, perhaps, with a fair wind, all things being equal, circumstances notwithstanding, not to put too fine a point on it, I might eventually downsize the collection. Replacing my two Tridents with a blue C65GMT might be possible, but that would be a downsizing step, wouldn’t it? :)

I have thought about moon phases on quite a few occasions and have managed never to buy one yet. I have managed to convince myself that they are very pretty but largely irrelevant as far as I am concerned. This one, however, does leave me feeling quite intrigued.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

You being allowed south of the border Patrick?

Staying overnight on the Saturday, or going straight back after the GTG?

^^^^^ See you there then. I will be the relaxed, tanned person, whose watch will be out of sight under my cuff. :)

Look forward to meeting you then Neil (as well as some of the other guys from the forum whom I haven't met before) and finding out which one of your fine collection is hiding under the cuff. I can feel stress already deciding which watch to wear for the day.

As an aside I got an invite to a Rolex Baselworld 2019 event in Edinburgh in a week or two. If I do go to that, it will be an easier choice (from a selection of one) :lol:

I went to one last night. I think I was probably the only person there who wasn’t wearing a current 6 digit model Rolex. This pic and the time that I took it, reminds me that the wine was flowing. Not that I need reminding, as the the hangover is still telling me that.
