Loupe 27 - Winter '22

Post by Bahnstormer_vRS »

A copy of Loupe 27 was delivered by my Postie today.

For those who have yet to receive it, especially anyone not in UK, you may read and download a .pdf version on the CWArchive

There is a lot of information within about the design and inception of the C1 Bel Canto. :wink: :wink:

Too bad about the spelling mistake on page 3 - "Trusst"? Or is it supposed to be some irreverent mistake related to the trident on the end of the second hand in the picture adjacent to it on the same page?

Cheers,

I've got it in mind that it's a play on the double S in Swiss but there's probably a better reason I guess.

^^^^ You and the other forum members who have commented so far.

It's clearly a play on words though, given our forum ethos, not something we should debate. :D

As was my response. Obviously.

On page 11, a teaser about a new line coming - inspired by 1970s watch design and “There’s one genre of watch that our collection is missing.” Perhaps the return of a motorsport line?

First thing I thought was integrated bracelet steel sports watch. Admittedly that is taking quite a bit from the teaser image and the fact that it is a butterfly clasp on the bracelet.

Ooh, interesting speculation. They do make reference to Royal Oak and Nautilus in the write up, both of which have integrated bracelets, correct? I’m intrigued!

^^^ Well every man and his dog now does an integrated bracelet “sports” watch. No reason for CW not to do the same…

If they make it 39mm, with a height of 9mm-10mm and a non chunky correctly tapered bracelet and 100m WR that would be good.

Where's this one going forumites?

Missing genre could include

quartz watch,
chronograph,
daily alarm watch,
tuning fork hummer,
pocket watch,
"for smaller wrists formerly described as a ladies watch",
doubtless others. 100m WR doesn't point towards it being at all "diver-ish".

What would a "carbon neutral, wind or solar powered watch" look like? :oops:

Not sure about genres, but it’s been a while since we had squares... I almost bought a makaira the other day, but a seventies square would suit me down to the ground :D
