About a week ago I was alerted that there was a NIB C8 PILOT MK II - VINTAGE EDITION C8-SVKT-MK2 for sale on eBay. It had a reasonable "buy it now" price, and was one of the prized 'old logo' versions. How could I refuse.

It arrived today and is exactly as described. New in the box, just as it left the CW HQ. I think it looks especially good on the tan leather strap. But unfortunately, with the CW clasp, the strap is just a bit too large for my wrist. So, I removed the clasp and replaced it with a Crown & Buckle black PVD buckle I had on hand. Now it fits perfectly on my 184 mm wrist using the last hole provided on the strap.

This is my second C8, as I already have a C8 Pilot MK II with a beige dial. And as it is 44mm in diameter and only 9.7mm high I think it is just about the perfect fit for me.

That looks really good! I like that vintage look, and the strap suits it well. Decent movement in it - the Sellita. I know you just used it because you had it, but the buckle doesn't suit. It is a nice enough buckle, just the wrong colour. I'm sure you will use something else when available.
