I couldn’t get past the first couple of sentences. I guess his style didn’t click with me. That, and I couldn’t see the pics.

It's not really my style either (as a review). But he did like the watch and the pictures were good.

I’m seeing the pics now. They are really good and show the watch off quite well. If CW brings this out in a 36mm, I’ll have a hard time resisting.

Will Duncan certainly writes a rather different style of review to most other sites. He doesn’t hold back and tells it how it is.

All the interaction I’ve had with him via Facebook and messenger (we’ve traded watches in the past) has been just as honest. He’s an all round decent bloke and what you read in his reviews is what you get in conversation with him, he’s certainly not hiding behind a persona.

It’s a very positive review, for sure, and for the most part the writing is very good indeed: highly literate, expressive and well constructed. So it quite defeats me why, on five or six occasions, he needs to go plumbing the depths and using scatological words and phrases.

It’s within a piece of writing, so it’s clearly intentional. I just find it rather unnecessary.

That apart, a good review and some great photographs. Shame he has to spoil it.

That's exactly my thoughts too, Steve.
It completely put me off reading the article and ended up just looking at the pictures.

Same. The pics are absolutely worth taking a look at. In fact, they almost tempted me to go back and give the review another go….but I didn’t.

How likely do we think that is? I’m trying to hold off until January for my next purchase, but at the moment it’ll be a Sealander. A 36mm would be my preference and if they released one shortly after I’d bought a 38mm version I’d be quite peeved, as I’m sure lots of other customers would be!

Who knows? I think the size was brought up in another thread in reference to the original Rolex Explorer and what looks like a trend back towards smaller sizes.
