Always good to see how your collection keeps changing and moving forward. :thumbup:

The changes since your last update include my three favourites in your collection - C65 Dartmouth, C65 SC and C9 SH21 SC. :)

First off, Ferg, if if there was the definition of a brand ambassador it's you! Shame there's a Rolex in there sullying an otherwise immaculate collection. :lol: :lol: My fav three: the C9 jumping hour; the C65 MK 1 LE and probably the C65 SH21 LE, so we share two the same. Your photos are always a treat, you should be employed on the CW website. I'm just curious , do you ever wonder what it must be like to be able to post in non CW of the day? :lol: :lol:

Seriously, really great stuff, a superb collection of well-loved timepieces.

Ferg, I've said it a few times before but you are a great CW ambassador (never mind James Bond or whoever on that other thread!).

I think you have improved your CW collection even more with these latest editions - the C65 LE is such a great summer watch to lift the mood, the C9 ss is a perfect dressy watch. The blue of that SC is so appealing too, if only I didn't have a few blue watches already I'd definitely be tempted to buy one.

Ferg, I've said it before that I think you have it right!! If you calculated how much money you have invested in your CW collection , and the diversity you have, compared against using that same money to buy "bigger brands" I believe you've won. Actually you've nailed it on the value for dollar spent equation IMO.

I also enjoy watching you fine tune your collection with a few additions and subtractions each year. My favourite additions this SOTC has been the C9 SS and the C65 Yellow LE!!

Enjoyed the post!

Fab collection Ferguson and, like others, it’s been great to see the collection to grow and change through the years.

A tough question..... if you could only keep 3, which would you choose? :shock:
Oh that's a very tricky one mate.....
If I literally had to choose three then probably the C65 SH21 LE. C9 SS and the C9 Jumping Hour Mk3.
I must apologise, my autocorrect always insists on calling you Ferguson :lol: I might have to change your name

Excellent stuff Ferg! I didn’t realise you’d picked up a C9SS - lovely watch mate, mind you, as are the rest of them. All looking to be in fabulous condition and a pretty good representation of CW’s finest.

Cheers mate.

You may not have a Constance but you certainly have constancy, Ferg.

I'm not sure I could ever amass a one-brand collection like that.

And...you have refined the watch and shirt photo into a true art form.

Very well done, my friend! :clap:
