    Looks lovely - but crazy price over the standard offering.

    Agreed. The specific features to make it more like the original take it to another level, but the price jump is a bit ambitious.

    A few changes. The version I have from a few years back has a sapphire crystal, but this new batch has mineral glass. Closer to the original, but I prefer sapphire. The new batch have a Ronda rather than an ETA movement. I couldn't find details on which Ronda but it may not have the redundant day/date function.

    Hard to justify the price increase if the components are not as good,
    Mineral to sapphire, ETA to Ronda have not been done for authenticity sakes have they?
    I love a CWC but itís proving hard to buy a new one at the moment.

    I hadnít spotted those subtle changes.

    I wonder if the movement changes are due to ETA supply issues.

    I find mineral is less reflective than sapphire, and maybe it is closer to the original, but thereís no denying which is the superior material.

    Agreed. With the exception of a GS with tritium dial, which was a custom order, I think used is the always the way to go with CWC

    Almost certainly true. The only think they have that is tempting is the custom automatic diver https://www.cwcwatch.com/collections...ver-auto-diver

    I like the dial and handset, but not enough to pay that money.
