Top notch purchase Lindsey. The Alex is a great watch. Enjoy it.

I remember a few popping up in one of CW's clearance sales some years ago, and I bought one as a present for my Secretary/Office Manager; although I can't these days recall the occasion it was bought to mark.

That's a really nice watch. The offset dials and big date, make it, I agree. Congrats on getting your hands on one, Lindsey! Enjoy it in good health.

You reminded me! When I asked Christopher Ward if he could find an Alex Sport down the back of Wera’s sofa he sent me one of these bracelets FOC! :D I don’t know where I put it but I remember putting it aside because I needed to take a couple of links out.... I think I’ve moved house twice since then so who knows where it might be now! :lol:

This watch somehow makes me feel totally old skool and nostalgic- it was in my mind a different era in the growth of CW, but it’s also the style of watch I’d have loved in my early years of looking for cool watches.
Similar sentiment here, MissF. This was a time when I was trying to get Mrs Milkman a nice watch. We did try the Alex but it wasn’t for her. She settled on a rather splendid Coral instead 8)

My wife and one of my daughters have white and black Corals respectively and the same daughter has a Matisse. Lovely watches both.
