This is definitely a strap monster /1 watch multiple look.
It came on the blue turquoise Tiber leather strap.

Currently fitted with the BoR bracelet as can been seen in a previous post.
However, I've just ordered a couple of other quick release straps for this - they should turn up tomorrow so photos to follow.

Agreed Paul :thumbup:

I had my eye on and bought this with the specific intention of it being a Holiday watch (albeit it won't be reserved just for that purpose), that is, 1 watch, different quick release pin straps to change the look/colour combo very easily plus it has a 150M WR rating which is fine for swimming/snorkeling.
I haven't been this enthused about a watch for a while now - ticks all the boxes :D

I do have the CW Orange Tiber on the radar, however, as I'm looking at this being a Holiday watch (swimming, etc..), then I wanted to go down the rubber strap route.

1 one watch - many looks :D

Great pics. Out of interest what accuracy are you getting on your movement?

That is some great strap combinations :thumbup:
(albeit I not a big fan of NATOs but do appreciate the colour matches)

Thanks :thumbup:
To be honest I've not checked the accuracy.
(Note to self - would be useful to have a timegrapher)

Last time I measured mine I was getting about +2-3 a day. I will have to throw it on the timegrapher and have a look.

Thankyou for the reply :) I just got the same watch from CQW and altho its stated as up to 20 secs a day im getting approx +12. Ive put mine on the timegrapher and face up its all over the place. Im getting really random readings from +2 to about +18. with a beat error of +2.1.

Maybe I should wait for it to settle down as its new watch? The weird thing ive just put it back on the timegrapher and now its +0 to + 8. I only asked this as the I bought a blacksand SC from Iain from these forums and a C60 GMT from Ferg and both are superb and consistant accuracy but my new watches from CW are really poor in comparison. As i type this the timegrather is all over the place up to +17 now. All my other watches at least keep a steady figure

I know its within spec but I've never seen these random readings on a new watch like this before. I dont know if anyone has any comments?

At the end of the day ive handled the watch with cotton gloves so its in perfect unused condition and could take returning it if im not 100% happy with my purchase

Just to add I put my blacksand (from Iain) on the timegrapher again and its readings are great at +6 (face up) and a really small deviation to +4 after 5 mins of readings, Like I mentioned the new SC is fluctuating all over the place from +2 to +18 and back again all the time. Is this normal? Should I just accept it and stop fretting is what im kind of asking?

I just had a terrifying flashback when you mentioned +18spd (wiggles, anyone? :lol: )

The bottom line is all those values are within spec for that movement. Accuracy can vary depending on many variables, including but not limited to position and power reserve. Maybe even the timegrapher you’re using is causing some variation? I personally wouldn’t worry over what you’re describing. Maybe someone with more depth of knowledge horologically will chime in with more info.

Thanks Alex. I need to stop fretting and just enjoy the watch. If something is wrong there's the warranty as well 👍
