Re: Oris aquis vs new trident

Thanks both. I have been thinking that I may finally buy a new watch later this year (haven't actually bought a new watch since 2012) and if it's a CW, it's the Elite 1000 that has ticked all the boxes I've been wanting in a watch for a while. (I was never into the Mk2 handset) But the Aquis range k...

Re: Oris aquis vs new trident

This thread seems a bit old, so the 'new' trident isn't the newest Trident anymore...! :lol:
Does anyone have the latest Trident and an Oris Aquis to compare those too? Just wondering if the latest Trident brings build quality any closer to the Aquis.

Re: Interesting UK Kickstarter - Nardi

I'll admit, each time you keep bumping this thread I keep getting more tempted :lol:
They're based in the same city as me so it'd be nice to support them but the watch isn't quite 100% what I'd want - and I'm not supposed to be spending anything further on watches at present either! Arrgghh!! :lol:

Re: CW Hybrid Strap - Mk2

HS2 Now available in other colours too. Only one missing (at this point) is the black/orange variant Looks like they have it with the Steel clasp? https://www.christopherward.co.uk/webbing-strap-bf6910 It's not obvious but the wording there does say this is the new one... Our first 'hybrid' waterpr...

Re: Of your own watches. your favourite dial?

For me it has to be this: https://i.imgur.com/VmoA3Hx.jpg?1 I keep toying with the idea of selling this watch as it rarely gets wrist time these days; but then I look at that dial and feel I can't let it go. I love all the different layers to the dial and as you move it around in the light the highl...

Re: C6 Bezel removal and alignment

One of my C6s is going in to CW soon and this is something I've asked them to address, so if you haven't found an answer by the time I have it back, I'll let you know on here! (though they are suggesting they will have it for a while) I know what you mean about on-going love for the C6 though - I've...

Re: Music Streaming Services

Bungle-Ator, that’s one of the things I enjoy about streaming. With CDs/ own ripped music, I found that I was stuck in the same grooves. Great music, but I wasn’t refreshing my listening habits or picking up anything new. Streaming allows me to do that and i’ve Found a couple of new musical themes ...

Re: Music Streaming Services

I'm intrigued that whilst quite of few of us use the better quality 'premium' services, 320kbps, no-one has commented (that I can recall reading) on being a HiRes/CD quality user (apart from @Christam who's posted whilst I've been writing this) Maybe I can help then. ;) Before - no actually it hasn...

Re: A Trident in Thailand

Nice! Is that at the Serendipity resort? The Sunset resort was lovely for a couple of sunsets when we were there a couple of years back! (though Koh Lipe wasn't my favourite island)

Re: CWL of the day

Came in to work with one loved Kingfisher on and leaving with the one that arrived today from @Bahnstormer_vRS. Thanks again to Guy! This orange is as lovely in person as I'd always thought! Image
