I'll throw in a vote for the Tide straps in 22mm. I think they are missing out on an opportunity there!
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

A black with red stripe would look great with my C65 AM GT LE!

I just noticed that you can get the C60 Bronze COSC LE on a black with white stripe Tide strap. That watch is 42 mm with 22 mm lugs. You still can't get the 22 mm strap on its own but maybe this is some evidence that more will be coming in 22 mm?

Seriously, you would think they might consider a bigger range of colours and sizes of straps, to give buyers a wider choice. Many (most?) OEMs don't limit their strap ranges to just the standard straps they sell on the watches. CW straps aren't exactly overpriced compared with most manufacturers.

[HIJACK]This caught my eye as well and thought it interesting. A Certina with a #tide NATO. I tried looking around and it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else. [/HIJACK]

I totally agree. This would look great on my C7 Apex.

Anyone know what they are due back in stock? I want the bracelet rather than strap.

The C63 Sealander GMT on Bracelet is showing 'Pre-order for end Oct 2021'

You could always buy the watch now on a strap, and then buy a bracelet separately later.

Cheers mate, for some reason it doesn’t show the date on my mobile.

Do any bracelets available currently on the CW website fit the Sealander?

Unfortunately not. The C63 Sealander bracelets are specific to that model; due to the shaping of the fitted ends of the bracelet.

That, listed on its own, is also showing 'Pre-order for end Oct 2021'.

You could always get a straight end bracelet from the likes of Watchgecko to tide you over, perhaps.

Just picked one up on a tide strap. Wears a little smaller than I would have thought, but really liking the overall fit and finish.

Here it is next to the latest Explorer II. In pictures, they seem close in size, but on wrist, the feel is very different.

Really nice photo! I have always like the Rolex but can not get past the cyclops. The new CW is awesome and Mike France stated on a pod cast today the are making another size (I assume larger). The 39mm is too small for me. So my question, since you own a Rolex do you feel the CW is too much of copy? I do not see myself buying the Explorer but concerned I will always look at the CW as a copy. I really do not like we all compare everything to Rolex but it is what it is. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
