Speedhawk?


Passed on a Speedhawk when they came up in the 'Archive' sale a while back. Could be said that I have my ration of 'wobbler' in my Trident Chrono (although Tikkathree will likely disagree). Maybe one day.

Accept the 'rise again' element of the suggestion but I've not owned one before, so it fails on the 'return' qualification.

For some reason the C4 has never quite had the attraction for me. My third CWL was a Speedhawk, which I kept for several years, and perhaps that spoilt me with the C4 seeming to be the poor relation.

A little birdie has whispered there might be one coming available, but it was the sale of a Sector that got me going on this reverse consolidation, so wrong tack. :thumbdown:

You are though on the right tack, Steve, for the genre of watch. :thumbup:

As I have absolutely no capacity for remembering what my fellow dolphins have flipped, I am completely clueless.

However, well done on the Animal, mine performed beautifully on holiday.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

My first CWL; well thought out and remembered (quite how I'm not sure), but not quite.

Correct genre and a 'big' watch too, but we're moving of into the realms of other brands.

. . . and its a fairly long list of flipped watches for me. :lol:

Thanks on the Animal. :clap:

It helps me creep, just, into the realm of Vintage watches but keeping to a style of knock about watch that I like. :thumbup:

Slightly off topic but now's the one in one out policy going? It must be a bit tricky for your other half to keep track of the revolving door at the moment :lol:

Agreed particularly when I did a 5-into-1 to get my C60 Trident Chrono P'type and a 1-into-4 with my Sector. Then I've done a couple of sales with a cheaper trade incoming.

The incoming Animal will be based on the sale of one of my current ones; in a week or two's time. :wink:

Starting to lose count and the plot myself, even. :problem: :silent:

Must be time for a SOTC Guy as there has been a lot of movement over the last few months, once the new ones arrive of course?

I'm not very good at doing SOTCs Kevin. My collection changes too quickly. :problem:

However, you have a point and, perhaps, with a period of stability, I ought to. :thumbup:

Thegreyman wrote:A CWC...same genre as a Sector...military??


Sorry Patrick. Wrong on two counts, IMHO. :problem:

The Sector is an Aviator, admittedly with a military theme, and I've not had a CWC before; I can't therefore have one returning.


I left a 'big' clue in an earlier post; in relation to a C11. :wink:
