Re: Happy Birthday Bahnstormer_vRS

Happy birthday Guy!! Hope you had a great day! But... Gym on your birthday? I'd at least take my birthday off! (But then I also take the other 364 days off the year off from the gym too, so obviously that's a pointless statement)

Re: The Bargain Hunters Thread

Watch obsession also have 20% off a range of the straps they carry (including some Erika's Originals) but sadly none of the Forstners.

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

The old days of ten years ago aren't coming back. They are not coming back. Please face that fact. Wow - I wasn't expecting a small comment in my post to give this reaction. I didn't mean to wind anyone up! If anything, I'd say we probably feel the same thing... I also don't want the old days of te...

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

I may not have worded that very well! But as BobMunro mentioned above, for most people who would normally spend no more than £100 on a watch, those who spend significantly more would seem strange. I guess my point was, for most people that's a big leap out of impulse purchase territory which when it...

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

I....... disagree. I can think back to my first (nearly) new CW (admittedly over 10 years ago) which cost £120 if I remember right. Couldn't do that today. Granted there are many many reasons why this is the case - inflation, lack of quartz movements, higher quality, etc. etc. There is no argument f...

Re: Is there a C60 Trident with Guilloche Wave Dial Still in Production??

The C60 Tide is as much wave as you'll currently get in the C60 range. The Elite 1000 in black and red is probably the closest to what you're after. You can order one with a wave dial if you ask nicely, but you'll have to order a minimum of 50 (or some number like that - I can't remember what the mi...

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

Coming at this from an engineering point of view (enough has been said about the 60/60 stuff and the overall goings-on that I have nothing to add) I'm rather surprised CW aren't more interested on cracking the movement open to see what has happened. Given it is an in-house movement that failed withi...

Re: Quartz

From memory they were about 1mm thinner, but it depended on which model of auto and quartz and what complications they had.
It may be worth you picking a couple of models out in the Archive (for which I've linked you directly to a C60 search) to compare.

Re: Quartz

Oh - I prefer mechanical too. But I have stints where I'm often in a place at work where a watch will be affected by magnetism. Also, you can't beat the get-up-and-go nature of quartz for a daily watch compared to a mechanical.

Re: Quartz

No, unfortunately they have ended their quartz line and for the C60 dive range it was some time ago (as far as I recall there's not been a Mk3 quartz, and it is even some time since the last new Mk2 C60 quartz model). They announced they weren't doing quartz watches anymore around the time they rele...

Re: Ferg - MiniMpi is a legend!

Congratulations Ferg!
Not sure how this makes me feel - having joined a full year before you and yet written 1% the number of posts you have! :lol:

I agree with all the above though - your photographic contributions are brilliant!

Re: RZE Fortitude - New release

Given the founder of the company - Travis - is a commercial pilot, I wouldn't be surprised if it is a flieger of some sort. I was expecting one much sooner!
