    I'm just hoping it doesn't carry an "Omega" price tag!

    I wait the price

    I bet it is more expensive than an original (£2500+)

    Yes the price will be the most decisive feature I suspect. I reckon around £1500.

    42mm case now, which is a shame, but it will be prohibitively expensive anyway. I reckon they'll try for £3k on this one.

    Iíll guess somewhere in the middle, £2250. Certainly more like it though.

    But, 39/40mm, hand wind and 13mm thick would be better!

    Loving this. Shame it isnít 38-40. Hoping the price isnít prohibitive. Sellita movement?

    That was the first reissue!

    No idea what this one will be yet.

    Did they sell any at that price?

    Yes that one is playing on the full ďnosĒ movement (only 100 of) and Tritium dial story, to somehow justify the price.

    I suspect this one will have a SW500 movement and will be priced accordingly.

    If you don't want to pay the high price tag, you could always try the cheap version from Baltany for a fraction of the price....I have four of their pieces and they are well made for the price point.

    Not on the CWC level at all but if you wanted a taster so to speak....

    100M water resistance is nice, but the 42mm diameter spoils it for me unfortunately.

    There were only 100 made so I presume they did but I have no idea who would have bought them at that price when an original can be had around half that.

    Now that's better! Way better!!!

    Shame about the increase in size but I suspect will likely be fine on the wrist. I wear my 42mm aquaterra on NATO most of the time and looks great even on my small wrist.

    Sadly I'm still selling rather than buying, including my original version, but if I was a buyer and not owning an original one I'd be tempted to try this as long as price isn't silly.

    Although sapphire is a shame as acrylic on a watch like this always gives a much nicer look imo.

    I'm predicting £2,499

    15mm thick too! Not to mention 49 lug-to-lug. That'll be a no from me.

    Well done

    I see that Chronomaster have a mint example of the original reissue, personally I would rather put my 2k into that. By the time you get a Nato under this new one it is going to be a little bit chunky.

    I was going to post the same. Iíd be sorely tempted if I had the coin to spare.

    I gotta say I think they priced that right, if I was on the market for a brand new watch in that style I struggle to think of a nicer looking watch for the money.

    They should do well with this one I think.

    Negatives for me, auto instead of manual but I guess more mainstream popular for anything that isn't a moon watch, sapphire in place of acrylic, but again same thing tbh. Size and thickness but I suspect it'll look amazing on the wrist anyway.

    I certainly won't be buying(can't see me ever buying another watch at this point) but I think they've got this spot on tbh.

    Makes the Hamilton equivalents look like particularly good value.

    Good point, not keen on the overdone faux like which they made look more lume also looks more radium than tritium. That aside though also a great watch and available at near half the price.

    Having said that between the two I much prefer the CWC overall.

    The Hamilton is too faux for me, aesthetically I prefer the CWC by a long way.

    This is a good shot. I am excited to see the white dial, too.

    The CWC does outclass the Hamilton. I might even choose it over a Longlines BigEye or Sinn 356, if looking at chronographs in this price range.

    Price is not rediculous. For me, automatic is a plus.

    Had convinced myself that I didn't need any more watches, but this is tempting...

    Love the dial but Iíd take the Big Eye with the column wheel chrono any day of the week.
