Thanks - I'm very pleased with the C70s - also 'overflowed' is a C70 RAF Ad Astra in Silver/Blue, an older C70 BE & also the original non-COSC AM DBR
I was wondering when you were going to come along and chip in :mrgreen:

All good things come to those who wait ...... :P

To my mind they are lovely watches but they are not everyday wear. Very much in the category of fun watches for me. I tend to wear my two in the summer because they're nice and bright. Being quartz they are reasonably light and slim.

The bezel on the Ascari COSC is a bit more robust, as it's edged with steel, but the one on the DBR1 is a ding magnet.

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.

Wow! that's quite a collection. It was a C70 DBR1 that got me into the brand. Just started using it again after a couple of years in storage.
