TGV naming the Bel Canto best watch 2022

Post by dsb18 »

Although I am not a huge fan of the "The Urban Gentry" TGV he surprisingly names the CW Bel Canto as the number one watch of 2022, as he very rarely talks about CW as watch manufacturer and sometimes comes over as a bit of a watch snob, it came as a shock he named this watch at no 1.
All bodes good for the future for CW.

Good heads-up!
Andrew Morgan (the talking hands of Watchfinder & Co) has also made the same call.
There will be more I think :)

TGV link. No 1 at about 16 minutes.

Wonderful news for the CW, on both counts.

(And for the record, I’ll take TGV over the Watchfinder guy any day of the week.)

I think that the view of AM carries far more weight than the TGV chap. :)

He certainly does for me but I’ll happily take the Urban Gentry’s praise too.

Great news for CW. These two channels will bring a huge audience to anyone not familiar with CW. The UG has over 500k subscribers; WF has 830k. I dip in and out of both of these guy's channels. Personalities aside, both know their stuff. They know a lot about the history and manufacturing of a huge amount of brands. They might irk many but I'd certainly take their opinions over some of the other fools that have set themselves up as reviewers.

Glad to see CW’s Bel Canto get such praise and recognition. I personally find Watch Finder much more appealing that Urban Gentry but these are channels with many supporters. Great exposure, and well deserved.
