W1 Tonneau Suisse after 14 years of heavy use

I gave my wife this watch for Christmas 2005, together with the C5 I had bought for myself. She had gone through an episode of bad health earlier. When I called CW to place my order, a very empathic lady on the phone (who may well have been Wera, I'm not sure) suggested I get her a nice serial numbe...

Re: what led you to Christopher Ward?

The year is 2005.

I see a picture of the original C5.

Hook, line and sinker.

Re: Never Again

I guess I'm lucky I got my watch from England before October 31.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Stand back and observe as I set fire to my watch cred right here. :mrgreen:   g-shock.jpg   Excuse: today we had to bring in and stockpile 100 cubic feet of firewood.   100-cubic-feet.jpg   I refuse to wear my C5 Mk1, or my Omega Genève, doing that. This G-Shock is an odd thing. I got it because I t...

Re: New acquisition. Now I can almost die in peace.

Watch has been received, and immediately reshipped to me, by my friends in Norfolk. Looking forward to re-strapping it, and making pretty pictures, next week. https://scontent.fams1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.15752-9/69768377_2534334373519597_6203943387054211072_n.png?_nc_cat=107&_nc_oc=AQkiXnotvjodrYttqe...

Btw does anyone know why the pictures get turned 90° counterclockwise when uploading? Does it have to do with the size?
Make sure they're landscape (width > height), and you're good, even on a PC or laptop.

Re: Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

That's a beauty! Yes, apart from the sentimental value, I find it really charming. I even have the original Omega strap it came on, but the strap on the picture is a generic Hirsch strap, as I want the original strap to remain as nice as it is. I have been looking at Omega Constellation Pie Pans fo...

The JCW Clubman is absolutely amazing, a stunning car and seriously QUICK !!
It is a bit shouty, though.

Re: Vintage watch of the day (30 years+)

Genève.jpg This used to be my grandad's. It's had a handful of services, a new mainspring, and a new crystal (which is definitely not sapphire crystal), and the second hand isn't standard issue either. Around 4 seconds a day fast, which is nothing to be sneezed at for a watch this old. I like it a ...
