Yip all gone I'd say as it is no longer on the website and the home page has gone back to the Orange Sapphire.

Do you think it was the design or price that moved the inventory so quickly?

Because the design was sort of love or hate, I think the attractive price point was just low enough to get consumers to pull the trigger.

Confirmed on Instagram that they sold out in 22 hours. I’d imagine the price was a big factor. Did it instantly become CW’s cheapest non-quartz offering?

Wow! I’m already too late to pass comment! I think it’s a bit unfair to suggest that it was just the price that led to these selling so quickly. I think it’s a good heritage design adding to a line of previous well-met examples from other makers. Not sure I’d class it as a marmite watch.

Personally, i loved the design and immediately wanted it, saw the price and ordered straight away. If it had have been £1000 i wouldn't have ordered it. So take from that what you will.

I probably would've pulled the trigger, but they still haven't shipped my c63 yet. I'm trying not to buy my next watch until the previous one arrives.That way I can call it "expanding my collection" instead of a "watch buying spree"

Well played CW. Does nothing for me but they obviously know their audience.

I don't think it could just be the price, after all, how inexpensive would something you don't like have to be for you to buy it? But at under £500, it was a good buy for a genuinely limited edition. That has to be a factor - someone in design & marketing has really earned their wage this week!

LOL. Less than 600m WR. You'll have to take it off to wash the dishes.

Interesting looking watch. Kudos for CW for adding some variety to the C65 range, notwithstanding it's a nod to an oft used vintage design. That must be their fastest sold out LE ever. Probably not for me as I have the C65 well represented in my collection with the Dartmouth and Ombre. I'm also not massively keen on handwound watches (for the inconvenience of requiring regular winding) although I make an exception for my Panerai which at least has an 8 day PR.

Obviously a very popular choice at a great price! I would probably have been more interested if I had understood what the heck the dial was about! :lol:

Spotted earlier and duly ordered. Not on the bracelet alas, but that can follow later.
