Re: CWL of the day

Back to work. Lympstone on new camo Nato with all the hardware on the underside.
It wears very comfortable.

Re: Happy Birthday magicman!

Good afternoon Having a lovely day, thanks to all for my Birthday wishes. Went for a forest walk, now home for family time and cake. Put the Lympstone on a new camo Nato and perused the Wristwatch Handbook. PXL_20210306_122352858~3.jpg PXL_20210306_144531415.jpg PXL_20210306_151632782.jpg All the be...

Re: CWL of the day

Time to relax and get ready for my birthday celebrations tomorrow, I usually go over the top, but it will be a weirdly subdued event this year.

Re: Omega Extract of the Archives has arrived!

Hello there

I got an email back from Omega, they will be issuing me with a refund and no archive extract.
I don't know how I missed this info, when filling out my order, but they only do watches made before 2010.
As mine was from around 2016/17 obviously, it's not available.

Re: Lockdown new year exercise

I'm truly struggling to motivate and get moving.
I'm going to buy a bicycle tomorrow and booked in to start back on the golf course on the 29th of March.
So fingers crossed, the weather is on my side.

Re: CW customer service vs Gnonom

I've had no problems with CWs customer service, but I have only needed to contact them once and it was excellent, so I can only rate it 100%.
I largely skim over the threads that bring them to task.

But always glad to see, happy customers.

Re: Hairline clasp marks

I use my wife's nail polishing pads. They are like superfine Emery and the buffer is similar feel to an Eraser.

Re: 2021 release wish list

I have a rubbish memory, but I'm pretty good knowing what date it is, so a no date C60 would be great.
Only trouble is, I've told the boss, I'm done buying watches, so perversely, I hope they don't bother.

This is certainly funky, but not sure, in a good way.

Re: Sellita SW200

My C9 had a serious spinning rotor. Set off by a half turn of the crown.

I've not had any problems before or since.
