Re: Foggy dismay

FYI, in 🇬🇧 Watch Lab will probably do you a very basic pressure test for free.

Re: C60 Elite 1000 Accuracy

Make sure it has a gone through a couple of cycles of full wind and power down to nothing, while also wearing it…. That would mean perhaps winding fully on a Monday, wearing over a few days and then taking it off (e.g. for a weekend) and let it power down to nothing. If the watch is brand new, then ...

Re: CW and My Trip to Dallas

Last time I was in Dallas, I was sporting the original C5. I work in the company of well travelled people. If you ask any of us what our favourite city in the US is, the Big D is the usual reply. In spite of the blistering heat, freezing rain and tornados.

Re: Louis Vuitton Tambour Carpe Diem Minute Repeater

A nice reminder why I don’t like the term fashion watch. Love them or hate them, LV are not the same as the likes of Armani and Boss.

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

I’m dreaming of the Black Bay 58. I’m saving pennies. No idea why but, recently, the whole fauxtina thing has started to appeal. Will it disappoint against my 38mm Trident Pro 600 (that wonderful, lumed bezel always makes me smile), my current favourite?

Re: The Bargain Hunters Thread

Chisholm Hunter have a Black Friday sale on at the moment. I went looking for a Baby Alpinist and ended up with a Tissot PRX (with leather strap). Pay attention! The actual Black Friday sales invite you to provide a BB20 voucher on checkout, so a discount on top of a discount. My PRX ended up being ...

Hmmm… Do you need to apply for Loupe on an issue by issue basis? I’ve not seen mine (yet).

Re: C1 Bel Canto Preview

Very late to this one. Me and my Sealander GMT say hello from Lanzarote. First thoughts? Sod the limited edition/small numbers stuff. CW needs to become the company that very routinely sells a four grand watch (but please, keep the stuff I can afford).

Re: New Aquitaine Field Watch

Not really seeing a staggering difference between this would-be field drawing and the 36 Sealander on a strap or nato. Lets wait I guess. I just hope it's not too much of BB36 clone, and it would also be nice if it had smth other than a SW200 with 38hrs of power reserve, which to me is starting to ...

Re: The one-time buyer

Well, it was fifteen years between my first and second CW. This year I bought two, but that is probably anomalous. I do have a couple of itches to scratch though: The Japanese watch (good luck with that one, CW) The rectangular dress watch*. Probably novelties beyond the above two but I'm in no rush...

Just had Loupe pop through the letterbox - interesting

From a quick flick through during my tea break: They are working on a new field watch for later this year. There's a double page spread on Studio Underdog! For the new Trident there's "Sink Differently" campaign. I've long liked (but never pulled the trigger on) the Hamilton Field Khaki, s...

Re: Trident Pro 300 Preview

1) The 38 hour reserve is not long enough. I'd gladly pay more for something approaching 60 hours or weekend-proof. Improving the 38 hour power reserve seemed to be the most requested feature from forum members in the original thread. 2) No COSC version 1. I’m not fussed. The watches that have 60+ ...

Re: Trident Pro 300 Preview

My thoughts on this one? If I were buying a dive watch today, I'd go for one of these. However, current generation Trident 600 owners needn't cry into their beer (though die hard collectors will surely buy a 300 anyway). In terms of diving depth, has anyone here taken a CW watch close to 300, let a...
