Anyone used Klarna to buy at all?

Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if Klarna are new to CW but I notice that's the finance option now to buy. I have my eye on the C65 LE and I'm tempted by the finance option. I've never used Klarna before and have read alot about them. I'm happy to use finance and know the risks involved if you fall on har...

C65 Vintage Trident Diver #235

Hi everyone, I've been playing around with my camera and taken these shots of my 4 month old C65. I love the different blues depending on the light.

Re: Is the SH21 in house movement a risky purchase?

Thanks for the replies both.

I'd assumed with an in house movement there would be a scarcity of parts that would be difficult to replace or source and make servicing expensive later on down the line.

I'm reassured that it ain't necessarily so.

Is the SH21 in house movement a risky purchase?

I love my C65 Trident diver I've had for a few months now and I've recently seen the LE version below which I really really like (and surprised it's actually still available). A limited edition, power reserve and in-house movement it seems like great value. One concern I have is the in house movemen...

Re: C65 Diver SH21 LE : Uneven bezel

But they have offered to take the watch back to try to improve the bezel. I would take that up and expect them to sort it out.

I'm very keen on this watch and hope the issue gets sorted out.

^^^ Well put (so long as they aren't delivering the beer as well).

Actually, he did well to get there at all, many drivers would have given up that collection and re-scheduled for another day.

Re: Not a Fan of DHL

3 hours is pretty late! I wonder if he's new to the role having lost his job elsewhere because of coronavirus. I've read airline pilots have been taking delivery jobs in lockdown. I did multi-drop parcel delivery once having been made redundant elsewhere and it was really hard work and high pressure...

Re: Opinions Please - C65 Trident - Bracelet or Strap

Definately the right decision to buy with a bracelet and the CW quick release straps make changing them around so much easier. In the hot weather I find a bracelet is much more comfortable especially with the micro adjustment than a leather or nato strap. I've only recently come to appreciate the be...

C65 vintage, couple of pics

Did a visit to a National Trust property today now they're open again. I'm really pleased with the watch, it's very comfortable, you forget you're wearing it (a good thing in my book) and looks great. And a few weeks in and the time keeping is spot on.

Re: What are you drinking right now....?

I've recently discovered these 'small' beers in an attempt to avoid hangovers in hot weather whilst being daddy-day-care to my 3 young boys. It's very tasty on a hot day!

Perhaps someone more technical than I can verify.....think you might also need a jewellers hammer to re-install pin/collar system as well
Hmmm, I didn't need one but maybe a different bracelet would?

The collar on my bracelet slotted in/out easily just using my fingers.

Re: Bracelet adjustment question

I'm generally not confident with this sort of thing but take great satisfation if I actually manage a job like this successfully. I wasn't sure how many links I would ask CW to take out as well. I recently bought a C65 vintage on a bracelet and decided to shorten it myself. With a pin pusher tool I ...

Re: Audi ruins C65 Trident Auto plan

Thanks! It is the WIAA one! It was inexpensive and has the quick release pins. I think it goes really well with the C65.

Re: Audi ruins C65 Trident Auto plan

^^ Thank you. I must remember to update my profile to 2 CW watches!

The quick release bracelet strap is brilliant. I can see myself changing straps as often as I change my mood (all the time in this lockdown!).
