C3 SKK Malvern Chrono...

Post by f1colin »

My first one! Classic watch, great looking piece, robust, sporty and elegant. One of the earlier Swiss Made versions, this watch gets lots of attention and has served as a good advert for CW quality and style in my workplace, coupled as a catalyst for disbelief at the low price. Ayrton Senna's 1986 F1 steering wheel cost a bit more!

Well, the forum name makes perfect sense now!
Nice pictures Colin. I think that the C3 is THE watch to convince auto-only enthusiasts that quartz doesn't have to be a four letter word. I'd love a C30 auto though, as long as it wasn't thicker than the C3.

I totally agree - A c30 would be superb and has been raised as a future FLE idea....

I don't have a block on Quartz - expecting to have coming this very week - a pre-owned CW C7 champagne dial chrono. Had never seen it before but it appears to overcome a design issue that has always worried about the C7 / C70 getting knocked on the bezel where the markings / colour was applied (the reason I never wore and in fact sold my C70 IT), but this one is s/s with tachymter markings only.

How many steering wheels does one man need? :?:
(Nice watches by the way - and good to see that you are giving the camera a work-out) :thumbup:

Nothing wrong with collecting them - as long as they fit you ?!? :-k
Pictures or it never happened (where's the glove-slap smiley when you need it?)

In all seriousness... I can imagine a racesuit, with all the sponsor-patches, making a fine background to a watch photo.

Colin, I wasn't suggesting that you were anti-quartz, rather that of all my quartz, this is the one that would most likely sway someone in the anti-quartz camp. Someone close to Scooter should lend him one for a week. It is really a fantastic watch Scooter, and everyone should have one quartz for a grab-and-go watch.

This would be the type of watch I'd buy for myself as I think it has a classy feel about it plus it would nice on my wrist.

I have a quartz, a Seiko Macchina Sportiva which I have been trying to sell since December 2010:

http://www.christopherwardforum.com/vie ... ilit=+seik

Yes, It looks good but it's boring as f*ck. It always tells the right time. For timekeeping I may as well look at my mobile which I would guess 95% of youngsters do.

There's nothing mechanical to look at, no cogs or wheels. It doesn't tick and has no 'soul'.

If anyone wants this they can have it for £190 plus £7.95 RMSD.

Apologies for this post if I have upset anyone.
