C60 Sapphire

Post by monty4legs »

Hi guys. I’ve just been introduced to this forum and the lovely CW watches and I fancy the looks of the C60 Sapphire but I’m torn which to buy. The Black one or the Blue one. I know it’s a personal choice but what do others like best? It’s hard to tell without actually holding one. Cheers! Dave.

I am not a fan of the watch itself but I think the blue looks best. I always do. What colour are sapphires?

I had the blue until recently Dave. Loved it.
Ive not seen the other 2 in the flesh, but they both look superb. The black is maybe a little more "understated" but very classy.

They wear a little small for my taste (i have a 7 1/2" wrist), but they feel comfy on. The bracelets are a must whatever choice you go got imo.

Why not set up a physical or virtual showroom visit? Excellent opportunity to have a look at both side by side

I have the blue and love it. I read some reviews of the black that say it’s more of an “industrial mechanical” type look, in a good way. You didn’t mention the orange, so I’m assuming it isn’t your style.

The virtual showroom visit suggested above is a good idea. Also, check out the reference gallery here for real life pics of them. I believe it has all the variants.

I agree about the bracelet being the best choice. I did put the photos side by side. Most of you going for the blue. I think I like the blue better too. I’m not interested in the orange as I have an orange faced watch already. Thanks for all the suggestions and your input guys. Dave.

We are speculating that there might be a white one issued this week. A new favourite?

@magicman mentioned this just above.

No problem, there is a virtual showroom option too. Not quite the handling you're looking for but it is a personal session and might help you make a choice. Backed by 60 day returns it helps minimise the risk of ending up with something you do not like. Good luck

I have the black with no regrets at all.

TBH, I would have chosen the blue as I think it looks better than the black. However, I already have enough blue watches and wanted to have the courage to try something different.

Having had it for about six weeks or so here are some opinions:

1) 40mm is perfect for my rather small 6.5 inch wrist.

2) It does wear a tad tall

3) The black is more translucent than I would like it to be.

4) To the above, it is definitely dependent on the brightness of the surrounding light and the angle at which it is perceived. In many conditions it can look dark as well. However, I have found that the darker the strap the

5) It does have an industrial look to it, which I like because I want to get away from traditional dive watches

6) Bracelet is a must

I'm posting some pics with a Barton Elite Silicone light grey strap. I think it works to bring-out the industrial look.
