CW C65 Sandhurst

Keeping it casual with this combo today.

Chronometer rated, 150m WR watch in a 38mm case….

I really like Christopher Ward ! I bought a watch 6 months ago (C60#tide) and I am 100% satisfied. Quality, look, design, bracelet, lume, dial, all how it was described on their internet site. Certified chronograph (with a test certificate), 60 months of warranty for the movement, 600 m water resistance, swiss made for less than CHF 1000 that is a great purchase in my eyes. How is your experience with your watch? The combiniation of watch and strap is amazing!! Really like it!

Hey @JaroWinti .Yes I am a fan of their watches. They make cool watches with great specs and offer great warranty. They have a designs for different consumers. Can’t ask for much more! Yours looks awesome — what made go for it over the others?

·

Basically the design of the dial and the bezel and its blue lume which is just fantastic. Even the dial has a kind of lume. Bracelet with very good quality and very nice buckle. Than certified chronograph (with a test certificate), 60 months of warranty for the movement, 600 m water resistance, swiss made for less than CHF 1000...

At the beginning I wanted to buy Longines hydroconquest ... But than I found this watch and the decision was clear !!

The adjustable clasp is very clever and not too big either. It’d be nice if CW offered a certified chronometer and non-certified version but I understand why they don’t. The blue lume on yours does give it a more modern look

I used to wish CW would release a Sandhurst with a  date, then they released the C63, which matches many of the specs, and has a date.

@KristianG yes the C63’s (Sealanders/Colchester) has 39-40-41mm sizes too. Although the C65 Sandstorm (Worn & Wound) edition does comes with a radial date. 

However they are all a significant design step away the military look of this one.

Indeed, though for me the size, thickness, and WR was more what I wanted from the Sandhurst. 

I have a C65 auto for the retro aesthetic, and now have a Marathon Navigator if I want a military look.

I'd want one of these. The CW Sandhurst and Cranwell are - IMO - some real spec monsters from CW, next to the C60 Lympstone

@MrBloke If I could choose again - I may well go with the Cranwell. Its a less common dial configuration and looks awesome. I don’t think you can really go far wrong with CW. I was lucky enough to visit their showroom and got to try on the Supercompressor; I really liked the dials and the technology behind it but always thought too big for me - I was wrong!

If only the Cranwell had a screwdown crown. I went with the Sandhurst ans absolutely was amazed by the quality. 

*edited to add that I see it now does have a screwdown crown. I almost wish I hadn't looked as now its on my shortlist.

Oh I love the Sandhurst. I wouldn't give it up. But I may have to get a Cranwell. I also have the Dartmouth and this would round out the collection.

That would sound like a very cool collection! Colchester too?
