Changing the brand name to that would give everyone something to crow on about….
It's also Horrid Watches PR unfortunately.

Let’s see them put France on a brand that’s always prided itself on being British…

Hi,
I’ve just sent this email to Marketing and wondered if anyone else concurs:
“I have 11 of your watches and they display nearly as many different logos/fonts/symbols as there are watches. You’ll never be taken seriously as a watchmaker (and yes I have a C60 Concept) until you finally nail your name/logo. I note with interest that Rolex change their logo every other month (and their model range).
You’ve now reprised the twin flag logo (which I actually like); so are you now going to settle on this across the range and stick with it? Until you sort the name/logo and stop the stupid fire sales no one will ever take you seriously regardless of the horological quality of your timepieces.”
A bit OTT ??

So you have 11 CW watches (including a C60 Concept) and you're worried about them being taken seriously?

So what your saying is that you like CW watches but are still bummed that only the fan boys swoon and no one else?

I notice the Super Compressor has just been re-released with the new flag only logo. Must mean that's what they're settling on? I'm not sure it works on that particular dial as it's already busy enough!

They have said it often enough in the last few weeks.

I think it looks okay but still glad I have the older version (even with the off center text :lol: ). The only one I don't think looks quite right is the Moonglow. They had one at Wind Up and they are centering the twin flags below the handset. It is super white and looks off to me.

I don’t mind it on the SC.
I also don’t mind the text based.

If either come up in the next sale I dare say I’ll own one.

I too have a first edition model of the SC with the off center text!!! I decided to keep it as an oddball vs getting the dial replaced....

I love my SC. A brilliant piece.

Looking forward to the C60 Trident GMT getting the TF logo on it so I can visit the showroom and compare it against the Sealander GMT.

I think the moonglow might look good with no text whatsoever, not even the swiss made. Maybe have it as a completely sterile option. Something like that.
