Thread slightly derailed.

Hear this ... I genuinely do sympathise with everyone having issues with their CWs, but do we not have enough threads running about watch/CS issues?
I've also experienced QC issues in the past, so I understand the frustrations.

But shall we try and get this back on track as we're being a little unfair on the new C65 Vintage.
Lets give it the limelight if only for a brief period and discuss some more :thumbup:

Give it a blue dial and I'm in.

Not sure what it is, probably the case shape — it looks a lot better than the previous version. Just wish they had more variety. A white dial option wouldn't hurt, either.

I'm wondering if this watch will also be part of the upcoming Field and Military lines. They recently modified this case. It seems like a lot of effort for just one model, considering that the founders have mentioned consolidating the number of cases.

Agree, would seem strange to talk about consolidating cases and not use this elsewhere.
Unless of course they are simply talking about X number of base designs, then be willing to tweak them slightly for different models.

I for one would like to see some continuity across the range moving forward and I could definitely see the "lightcatcher" case become something of a signature for CW, similar to Omega's bombe lugs, Rolex's Oyster case etc.
