Also, this Blue has a nice sunburst effect which isn't that noticeable in most photos (you can see it in the Youtube review, for example, around 8:30 mins)39867142-CZVG9.jpg

Very good watch for the price, I've got the full lume version and went diving with it in December. Held up well, heat.
Changed the images in my Deal post to some from this French review, as they're better
Stunning looking piece LouiseLouise, grabbed one, i was after an SKX but considering there are priced more than double this, this looks near enough

The reviews seem to suggest these are on par with the SKX and are discontinued or in the process of being discontinued, so may hold their value well
As soon as I saw this I bought it, I once owned the illuminous Dail version of this watch.
Imo blue is the nicest colour.
To be honest I wasn't aware that you could still get these. This watch has some real pedigree. Very well spotted OP and cheers.
Fantastic find - great price for a proper mechanical diver with real history. Heat.

That £19 price bump just stopped me spending £146 on something I don't need. It's gone from deal to average so my money stays in the bank.
D'oh, shame the price didn't last long. I'll do the Camels on this one, in case it dips again.39869129-wTTAu.jpg
I got the black bracelet version.
A very good tool watch

This watch has been out for years and years, maybe it depends which year it was manufactured There's threads about this on WUS:

Adman says here,
The NY0040's with the laser etched back are NOT copies or clones, they are simply the more recent versions of the watch. The older ones had the engraved backs and the newer ones have the laser etched ones. Both are genuine.

Also here, sgtlmj says,
I agree, and with the mirror finish on the back I can imagine that the engraving won't hold up over time especially if it's on a bracelet a lot. CWC started laser engraving their case backs a few years ago and it cheapens the watch.

Of particular note, the 12.00 marker looks like underpants. Once you see it, you can't unsee it. Enjoy

Yes, some say the 12 o'clock marker looks like "Y-Fronts" - I quite like its distinctive design. Divers can look a bit samey (to me).

Agreed. I've had the black ny040 for a while now. It does look special. Love the glossy black dial, looks a lot more expensive than it is.
ny0040 should be arriving today. Excited
have had the watch a few days now and really like. Also keeping very good time for an automatic.
