Re: MK1 C60 forced patina bezel.

Shouldn't you knock the lume pip out for authenticity?

I do like the look of the 'monkey'! Never ridden a motor bike, suspect I'm too old to learn now!

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

Longest ride since the knee op. Actually that doesn't bother me at all now, it's just the fight against anno domini and reducing strength! So here's a pic of the flat bar 1X that I made up in front of one of my favourite views near Wychford. On days like this, I'm always grateful that I can still ri...

I got CW to do this one for my wife's birthday a few years ago.
It's made the watch worthless to anyone else, but she is very happy with it.

Re: Single-handed 24 hour watch

Although I do still have a cheap one hander, I think they're just a gimmick really. They don't even have to be particularly accurate, and that coupled with a difficulty in reading the time (I know you can, but it's not 'right') makes them just another mechanical bracelet for me.

Re: C60 Crown "cracking"

Well, it's not right, as the normal action is completely smooth. From your desciption, either there's grit in there or the crown release spring is caught up on something.
Send it in to CW - give them a ring to ask them what to do.

Re: The forum spirit is alive and well

That watch looks bloody lovely. I really think that some of CW's early stuff was very, very good.

A BIG :thumbup: to all concerned.
