Re: Great site..... Have a look!

I agree.... Not cheap but the watches look really well presented and authentic, so I guess when I have the spare dosh I would pay that little extra for a nice example..... Right.... Time to choose some irish lotto numbers for the weekend! :D

Re: My new C60 accuracy reading...

:) Thanks.... I can't help but be so impressed. Didn't expect it to be quite as accurate as this..... Think out of curiosity I will do the same test on my C5 Malvern and my Hamilton Jazzmaster...... Should be interesting!!

Wow ... What a lovely watch. Congratulations on your win. Love the style.... I like the older look... Almost Big Benesque if that makes any sense. Lovely!! :)

Misread entirely by Tyke, and a lover of a quality swiss made watch every time for me. Looking forward to my C60 watch next week! O:)

This is a forum to spark debate? My apologies to those of you offended by my comments... And thanks to those of you who ma...

Why buy a Rolex? ..... Simply because I can!

Thought I would write this to spark some interesting responses....not to upset any fellow watch lovers!! It would seem to be that the only reason for buying a Rolex or other high swiss name watch is only to do with wealth..... From my readings across the net and view points on a series of forums, th...

Re: Bracelet Adjustment

Thanks for the information, Ian. Not sure I understand what the difference is but I will inform them of this. They have a good reputation as a watch repairer I am told, so hope they will understand this. Slightly worried until I know it is sorted!

Re: Bracelet Adjustment

Yes Kip... I am inclined to agree. Why should they take the risk of marking the bracelet? Just expected it to be easy with the right tools though. Thanks for the response.... Fingers crossed it will be all sorted tomorrow.....

Bracelet Adjustment

My C60 arrived today and my wife allowed me to try it on to check the bracelet size before she hides it from me till the 29th January.... My 50th Birthday! Love the watch, though should have really had it sized by Chris Ward. Took it to a local jeweller who said he was too nervous to remove the link...

Re: Date/No Date Poll

I like a date window on a watch...... Wish the date was silty bigger on my C5. Awaiting my C60 anytime soon.....maybe this is better. This isn't a point of note only in Ward watches. Other brands design small date windows too..... Maybe it's just me!!!!!! 0:)
