Chances of a C65 charcoal/ black Ombré?

Post by Kansas City Milkman »

In anticipation of the sale, I started to think which watch I would want to buy if it became available. Probably something unique, perhaps a C65 prototype. There are some fab watches in the sale and a few are ‘possibles’ but nothing so far which is an absolute must.

In the meantime I’ve stumbled upon a picture of a charcoal C60 and it triggered a desire for a watch which doesn’t yet exist. The charcoal C60, along with the Scooter, are two back catalogue C60s which I’ve always thought are amongst the best colourways.

The C65 case is still my favourite and that in some kind of charcoal or black ombré style (which looks more of a shade of grey) would be (in my head at least) a great combo.

Has anyone heard any rumours of a black ombré or charcoal C65? Does that combination appeal to anyone else or am I completely and utterly alone in thinking this would be a great idea?

There's an attractive c65 black and gold on eBay at the moment. I thought I saw one early on, but the buy now was greyed out. I looked at so many I'm not 100%

Thanks Jafo, the black/ gold is quite striking but not for me. I still like the idea of a black Ombré/ charcoal C65.

In fact, if any photoshop clever forumites fancies knocking up a version or two, that would be much appreciated :D

That looks great and I do find myself tempted by more C65s. I’d love to see this with the black ombré dial
