Disappointing tbh

Was really looking forward to this release, but not a fan of the way it has been opened up. Will stick to saving up for the logical 1

Makes sense, unless you wanted something specific.

I almost did the same a number of years ago. After a bit of back and forth and trying on several times I finally concluded it was too large for my wrist.

It is chunky for sure!

I feel I can barely pull it off and have a 7.25 inch wrist.

Some real pics

Looks great, right Mo?

Even better than expected in my opinion.

This is a very disappointing and poorly designed watch

And I am a fan of Gauthier's work. But this misses the mark in every way.

For me, the failing of the bracelet version is this lack of depth on the dial.

I loved the idea of the bracelet, and it was great on the wrist (for me). But once I had seen one in the metal, and knowing what these C looked like in the metal, I really needed some depth on the dial side.

The previous was a miss and this one tops that.

I like the verso though!

For example

Like the C1?

Yep.

I see. I understand👌👌

 
 By: immerschnell : July 4th, 2024-14:55

Yes, full grey dial.

Totally Agree. I like it.

Really disappointing. I thought C5 was great l, especially in real life.

 
 By: als1678 : July 2nd, 2024-16:24
The expectations for C6 were high. I thought - skeletonized dial, super light, maybe carbon. At the end - much larger edition, higher price, mediocre design.

You expected a carbon case? The entire C Freedom series is titanium .

 
 By: Jay (Eire) : July 2nd, 2024-16:48
It was never going to be any other metal. The C Heritage is platinum and gold. That said, I’m sure we will see an evolution now that this era of the C is over. Maybe as you say a carbon case, but as I understand it the next iterations with not be time onl... 

I am a very happy owner of C2. Clearly most pieces were going to be titanium.

 
 By: als1678 : July 2nd, 2024-18:25
But I see no reason to not break that rule for the final edition? It is not like the platinum one made much sense anyway. The previous pieces are not hard to find at both retailers and the secondary market. So I think 88 is very ambitious for a really laz... 

I can appreciate the difficulty of printing on the sapphire crystal but this looks like whiskers floating inside the movement

Probably too small to notice but still, it's a bit chaotic here. I like most of the rest, especially the fierce spear hands. Cazalea ...  

The typeface on the movement looks very generic...

 
 By: mdg : July 2nd, 2024-19:49
...for such a nice watch. Looks straight out of Microsoft Word...

Still too much needless text on the bridges

Otherwise, I feel as I did from the start of this series. Like Lang & Heyne's Hektor, this feels like a price point watch built with volume in mind. I almost think RG should have created a slightly downmarket sub-brand to market these. Almost like a S... 

You would know better I think, but yes, isn’t the whole point of this series to have more volume.

 
 By: Jay (Eire) : July 3rd, 2024-07:53
I don’t know if that’s been stated by RG explicitly but this was always my understanding of what these watches were. A downmarket brand like you suggest probably doesn’t help much. At least with these there is work for staff whom also employ their skills ... 

You are missing the point on this

 
 By: Mohannad (aka Riddler) : July 3rd, 2024-14:17
RG doesn’t really need a downmarket to get things going as he already have a very successful part manufacturing and supply to other major brands Top brands even and now is expanding with a new manufacturing building The C line purpose is to give access to... 

Not sure that line of thinking really works

 
 By: m2 : July 8th, 2024-15:16
I feel like it’s a totally different buyer or someone would just save for the one they want as all RG watches are varying levels of super expensive. I would agree if the price delta was larger.
