C65 Aquitane my want want vintage diver

Size looks perfect and I agree on the date - usually white under dark is an eyesore but it works here balancing the big white triangle at 12. I thought the wobbly looking hands is what makes it "vintage style" - if you want legibility get a modern watch. Like the C63 :lol: I think it’s mo...

Re: C65 Aquitane my want want vintage diver

16,5cm. So I’m out of almost anything going over 48 l2l.
Tbh thinking Aquitane is max but comparing this to other 41mm divers, it wears a lot smaller

C65 Aquitane my want want vintage diver

My journey with CW started with c63 gmt which I liked a lot…still do. After acquiring C63 I wanted a diver, vintage to be specific. Always liked Omega Seamaster heritage models but alas in all honesty those are too expensive for me and I dislike the longish lug-to-lug. More or less eyeing on differe...

CWL of the day

After DHL messing a lot up, I got this https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220510/b82f3b65d605c1a150c0e8a2cf2b0030.jpg I was hunting for vintage diver and lo and behold Aquitane was released. I had peeled on serica and baltic. Neither really did it. Serica had weird bezel and baltic was, imo, not eno...

Re: CW C65 Aquitaine at 2022 SF WindUp

I was watching how they made slight changes to hands, it’s even more apparent in these live pics. Minute hand is thicker in the middle and hour hand lost chamfer and became a bit duller

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

Each for their own I suppose. The design is right in my ballpark and I do love FF. It’s still Ward imo and they’ve done it well. Draw from iconic design and still adding something original. But I am a sucker of vintage divers (non-sun). Think the biggest gripe is that almost every microbrand has gon...

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

Pulls a ton from dictator friendly fyfty fathoms, but imo they nailed it.
I was looking for a blue watch, need a diver…found one. Almost ordered bronze but hate lack of versatility. Normal blue it was…

Now I’ll need to decide what I’ll do with my c63 gmt.

Re: Price increases

I’m surprised how low inflation has been. Work with industrial sensors and everything has kept rising. Is it made of plastic -> 10-20% increase, metal 10-25% increase and electrical parts have just insane lead times. Material costs are up by a lot so no wonder prices go up as well. Although a lot of...

C63 Sapphire GMT COSC LE

Only thing I dislike with current c63 gmt, is no lume on 24h markers and seconds hand.
Halfway there, but damn this is juicy looking combination

Re: C63 Colchester

Mine landed earlier today, pun intended... I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and got in before the pre order date was pushed back. It's a great looking watch, the lack of visible crown was a bit odd when I first put it on, but in the few hours Its been on my wrist It's really grown on me. The carb...

Re: C63 Colchester

How does the Colchester case material differ from those of Lumonox or Casio? I don't want to make any snap judgements witout being informed. Thank you, Leon I am certainly no engineer or chemist, but it appears to me, in super simple terms, that carbon fiber is carbon fiber. The differences, within...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

maybe the bezel shape or the dial surface (on the white and blue at least) lacks some sort of contrast That’s my only hesitation with the white. I love how it looks in pics that capture the hands in indices in such a way that they look almost black. In other photos however, where the angle does not...
