Newspaper ad

Post by strapline »

Was a nice surprise seeing this ad as I leafed through the Times magazine yesterday. Funnily enough there was also an ad for a Tudor and a Patek; I thought this was the best looking of the three.

^^^ Put up a pic of the other Tudor and Patek Des, to help forumites decide whether they agree. :)

Good to see they are advertising in the Times. :thumbup:

Well Neil...one was a Tudor Ranger nestled on Beckham's heavily tattooed wrist. The other was a very feminine lady's Twenty-4 Automatic, rose gold with a diamond surround dial. :D

Image looks good and the words make sense.

Is Trusst a word though? Or is it a play on words.

I know what a truss is and what trust is. I'm easily confused though and assume there is a reason to use the heading as is.

^^^^ I would say it was a typo otherwise it could be mistaken for a bra engineered to support the weight of large cup sizes from underneath instead of through the straps.

I did think that factor for a small moment but discounted it very quickly thinking surely they would not go there. If they have, no matter the actual content the very nature they have would tell me instantly why the Tudor and PP ads are better even without seeing them.

I get why a truss would have a link for reliability and sturdiness etc but the copy content and reference could be more explicit if it was.

It can't be a spelling mistake surely?!

Given a previous advert with a line about ‘a world leader with small hands’, this is clearly not a mistake. They have form. :lol:

I'm sure the trusst is deliberate. It's not the first time they have attempted to be topical with a play on words.

I think it's also worth mentioning how generous the top brass at CW have been in crediting the forum for its input in to this series of watches. They seem genuinely delighted at the input the forum provided them with. If this watch proves to be a great success for CW, which I think it will, then this place needs to give itself a little pat on the back.

I subscribe to the Times digital-only package and the ad isn't in the online version of the magazine supp!ement. It's interesting that it seems there are different ads in print compared to online. The algorithm should show my interest in watches and show appropriate ads surely? 😂

CW used to (or maybe still do!) advertise in the 'top shelf' gentlemen's magazines. Can't remember how I that found that out 😇
