Re: New purchase - should I buy the bracelet?

I concur with the above posts; the ratchet adjustment on these (I have it on the Mk2 C60 bracelet that I eventually got for the Kingfisher) is superb.

Re: New purchase - should I buy the bracelet?

I didn't get the bracelet for my Kingfisher 10 years ago because I wanted to save money. Also because I didn't want the weight of a bracelet. I recently decided I'd actually quite like a bracelet for it and it turned out they're rather difficult to find! Granted, the Mk3 C60 is more popular, but sti...

Re: The new CWArchive

Thanks from me too - it's amusing to flip back through some of the magazines and I just noticed you were mentioned in Spring 2014! :lol: One of the watches in the catalogues you have just uploaded is still my daily wearer, so it's far from forgotten! :) Looking back at that collection though makes m...

So I am now looking forward to semi retirement by going back to 4 days with a view to negotiating it down to 3 once proper normality returns.
I take it this means the kit car project has been on hold? ;)

I'm not saying you're wrong. ;)

Re: C7 Apex Ltd Edition...advice.

It's a tricky thing though; they need to create pre-production samples as any design/engineering firm does, just to check what is on paper/computer screen comes out the same in real life. It's the same with cars (even very limited editions). The difference is those are usually scrapped - which may b...

The tissot falls down on the two main criteria ... too big at 40mm ( the same size as the railmaster I am selling to move to a smaller watch and also no adjustment to the bracelet.
Both good points! Oops! Sorry...! I agree that the adjustable bracelet is something I've really come to love too.

Re: contemplations for a smaller watch

How about a Tissot Gentlemen Powermatic (not the best name ever)? https://www.tissotwatches.com/en-gb/t1274071104100.html https://www.tissotwatches.com/media/catalog/product/cache/aaadd316e453df5b08f7f4246fad1a9c/T/1/T127.407.11.041.00.png It's on my shortlist already and though not as nice as an OP...

Re: Dream Job?

Congratulations Steve - it does sound like a great result! Be careful Steve that you don't get asked to do 'just the occasional extra half day' or 'so and so is off sick, will you do a couple of days supply teaching' et al. It will be the slippery slope to being back working full time. Guy This is e...

Re: Strap Length Question

Hi John, On the C65 Trident GMT page you have the option to do a bracelet resize and they have sizes up to 25.5cm which is 10 inches, so you should be okay. It may be worth paying to get the bracelet resize done to ensure sufficient links are included. https://www.christopherward.com/retro-dive/c65-...
