The C65 Aquitaine makes a powerful first impression on the wrist. The 41mm size and proportions of dial and bezel design are just perfect for my 7.5” wrist. I haven’t sized the bracelet yet (not really looking forward to that) but it looks and wears great on hybrid and leather straps.
I wasn’t sure what color to get and was considering White Sand/green, Marine Blue and this Seagrass green. Blue was the safer choice and really like the light dial of the White Sand as well. But I never had a green watch before (besides the green bezel C60) so went for this one. CW really got it right with this shade of green. It’s a darker green in regular light and pops when sun rays lights up the dial and bezel. The sunray dial is the perfect combination for the sapphire bezel.
The Nearly New price of 30% off was a nice bonus but these are incredible value even at full price without promo code. My first reaction to the Aquitaine when it was introduced was ‘nice watch but not sure it’s for me”. But this is really a watch you need to have in your hands and on your wrist to really appreciate all the design details and how it plays with any light.
