Everybody is a critic...

We can all do it smarter, better faster and cheaper until we own our own business and see the grand picture of the the operating costs involved that the consumers never see.

FLE #8 - Poll #3

Lets decide on the dial print first. Then the Photoshop crew can produce (please) the samples from Summary #4 showing the voted on print. We can then put forth a final model vote.I will let this run for 3 days.

You get 1 vote and you may change it if desired

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

If there are any more suggestions regarding the dial print, let's get them in now as I will be putting up the vote on Sunday.

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

The case back will state "FORUM LIMITED EDITION 2020".

Before you ask about the date it is unlikely that this will arrive prior to year end.

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Time to settle on the dial print as well. If no more then we need to vote so we can get it placed on the dial/hand options for a final vote. This is CW's standard. AUTOMATIC - GMT 600m/2000ft We have as proposals 1. TRIDENT 600m/2000ft 2. AUTOMATIC - GMT 600m/2000ft 3. (My personal favorite) AUTOMAT...

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

Love the watch. Tough sell at that price point though, I'd like to see these limited edition at around £1500-2000. Still less that the big names but more than your standard Chris Ward. I assume most like myself like a quality watch, but also value proposition. Unfortunately at this price you could ...

The new CWArchive

Many years ago, as a collector, I found it difficult, in many instances, to find historical information on watches I was interested in or had purchased. Whilst it is true that one can locate information on the larger brands, it is usually scattered about the internet and in books, it is rarely compl...

Re: Decent Service From CW

While I do believe the personal touch is much appreciated and CW's communication/tracking software can certainly be improved, from a business standpoint, it is extremely difficult/time consuming to be answering calls to be constantly answering phone calls and to tell someone that there repair is sti...

Kip, I will address this to you as you are closest to the supply chain. If we were to decide tomorrow, how long till actual delivery and subsequent payment?
My best guess would be year end.

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Do we need a poll to determine which model from page 32 will be the final with/without an exhibition case back as well as glass type for case back?

I ask as it would seem that any subsequent suggestions have gained little or no traction.
