Re: CWL of the day

Bit of colour for a grey miserable day at work 20201128_125050.jpg Great to see an older CW on what appears to be an original strap. Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk Thanks guy! Yeah totally origional. Picked it up a while ago on the bay of fleas for a very reasonable price, after a bit of ...

Re: Happy Birthday Bahnstormer_vRS

That Pinion is beautiful! And the Orange Crush is superb too! I remember being wowed by the issue of Loupe with it on the cover! The first departure, that of my Bashed up Bloxworth - V_2 was sorted last night, following a PM to me expressing interest from a forum member. That was the one I was think...

Re: CWL of the day

Had a milestone birthday over the weekend. My wife surprised me with a new watch that hasn't left my wrist since. I could not be happier with the Super Compressor. It is a really fun watch. I love the 60s/70s ascetic. 20201124_184137393_iOS (2).jpg 20201124_184755013_iOS (2).jpg 20201124_184555761_...

Re: C60 Sapphire Strap Choice

I've just remembered the Haveston straps too. I have an older version of the flight deck (completely different to the current ones) but this may go quite well with the Sapphire?

Re: The Bargain Hunters Thread

Well, it's that slightly odd time of year again... Unless you know something you're after a bargain for. :lol: The Time Bum have posted a very helpful list of offers available for Black Friday. They've not included CW but there's a separate thread for that. :) http://www.thetimebum.com/2020/11/2020-...

Re: C60 Sapphire Strap Choice

Welcome to the forum! Guy mentioned the Veryan from WatchGecko; I have one of those and although I don't have a blue dialled watch, it looks great on my orange dialled CW. I'll try to remember to fit it tonight and get a real life photo for you. It's probably my favourite of my NATO straps though, a...

Re: How do I upload a profile picture

I did it with my wife and kids During the holidays over three summers. We did the Finisterre Camino too the year before last. Fantastic! I’m not sure we’ve had another Peregrino on the form. I will send you a PM – it would be good to chat. :clap: My partner did the Camino a couple of years back - d...

Re: C40 SpeedHawk vs C60 Trident Chrono 300

It is definitely worth setting up a search alert on the auction site(s) so you get an email when a model matching your search terms comes up. Means you don't have to visit daily but also don't potentially miss out on a model you're after. I'd also buy on here before an Auction site, but neither of t...

Re: Deep Dive into CWArchive Contest Winner

Congratulations biggus_richus! Very well done! I'll admit to really keeping my fingers very tightly crossed as I'd really love to own a Mk3 C60, but I also really enjoyed looking through the archives for the answers. That was a fun competition - more so than most. Thanks to Kip and the moderating te...

Re: The Design DNA of Christopher Ward

Agreed that it's an interesting topic, and one which I too have been thinking about in light of the model longevity topic. Looking at Omega Seamasters as an example, you can see how the DNA has carried through for decades. For example: https://www.esquire.com/uk/watches/g22861582/the-iconic-omega-se...

Re: 18mm on a 19mm lug width

So, when I said cut... :lol: I drew the line that marked what I wanted to remove, cut inwards from outside the sides of the strap, then scraped off the bits I didn't want, using that cut inwards as my guide (would be easier to illustrate with a diagram...). I used one of the aforementioned straps as...

Re: 18mm on a 19mm lug width

I've shaved down the lug ends of a stiff rubber strap on a couple of straps (to make them fit protruding lugs nicely. Measure twice to ensure you're centered, use a sharp knife, and be careful with your fingers, but it's very easy. The Bartons are worth trying for every day straps though - especiall...

Re: How is the research going?

Yep, I too enjoyed this. I have previously browsed through the forum anyway, but it was fun seeing models I've previously missed - particularly from when I wasn't active at all on the forum. Like Shocolite, I too saw yet more watches I wished I could've owned! Phase 3 threw me a little, making it th...
