Id love a "Proper" world timer. One where it has a 24 hour wheel so that you can tell the time at a glance all round the world :0)
Yes to this!

The other notable thing discussed by Mike France viewtopic.php?p=825904#p825904 was that they are investigating how to produce a GMT version of the SH21 movement.

They are using the functionality of the Rolex GMT Master as a benchmark so it’d potentially be a true GMT with an independent hour hand. This sounded very much an ‘ambition’ for the future and is no small undertaking, but would be interesting to see it come to fruition.
If this came to fruition, it might be a retirement gift to myself in a few years - a GMT just in time for when I start traveling...assuming Americans are allowed in anywhere! 😂😂😂

That would be good. Especially if it used the current C60 case with a bead blasted finish. An all metal bezel, but with the recessed numbers picked out in black. Slightly more refined hands of a similar design and a sunburst dial.
Trying not to buy any more watches...

Could it keep the original logo from the Kingfisher as a, sort of, heritage piece? Tudor did it with the rose instead of shield on the ETA Black Bay so CW could do maybe do it with the Kingfisher. Put my name on the waiting list if it happens, I’m in! :thumbup:

Put a sapphire caseback on the C60 and C65 series. Watch as the sales roll in.

A thought just came to me on this while I was playing with my pocket watches (not a euphemism). I have a lovely quarter repeater pocket watch which made me think that the clever Johannes Jahnke would not find it difficult to achieve this complication with a module on, say, a Unitas movement or the like. Repeating wristwatches are few and far between and mostly bonkers money. I'm sure there would be massive interest in a special like this from CW. Go on Christopher, I dare you!

I would love to see a C1 Moonphase with Roman numerals. I think that would be especially sharp on the blue dial.

Of course, JJ no longer works for CW, now has a senior position at Sellita.

So there's a new movement coming from Switzerland and they're looking for companies to adopt it. A new micro-rotor movement with decoration. I think this is right up CW's street and would look rather nice in a CW timepiece.

That's an interesting movement and marketing approach !
I agree with you .. it might just be the sort of thing CW would take on..

Perhaps you should email your idea to No.1 and see what they say..?

Now that looks like a nice piece of kit. And super thin. Auto 595 or similar??

I’d like to see a 36mm case, probably a C65 vintage MK3.

A more dressy version of the Sandhurst; no date but with the sunburst blue, green and purple dials from the old Slimline range - along with a classic white dial.
