I really like these but not sure that $2k for a Sellita GMT really fits the previous CW value-for-money ethos.

Still on their website from their original concept, they claimed a markup of 3 times manufacturing price. Whether that still holds true...

– Sell directly to customers only through our own website
– Apply a maximum three times mark-up on the manufacturing price
– Avoid the costly celebrity endorsements to which the Swiss brands seem addicted"

I like that Dune collection.

The problem with having a collection of watches is that when you see a new one that looks cool, you then realize you've got one back home that looks very similar and then it's a coin flip moment to decide what to do. Sell the old and get the new or just go home and dust off the collection.

It's not a bad looking watch. I don't believe CW is controlled by it's founders anymore. In the beginning their prices were a fair bit lower than currently. The only CW I own is a Pilot C8 model purchased in 2009. With a 2824 this was right at $300. At that time, (favorable exchange rate) you could save a little by ordering from the UK site.
