Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

My C60 MK1 is in for a service and I've been quoted £250 + return postage , battery change on another was £20. Have to admit to being surprised at the service cost because all the threads I'd searched mentioned £150! My C60 mk1 was serviced last summer for £99. I can't believe the price has gone up...

Re: CW assistance for C11 Extreme

Hope it gets sorted Yuri, you should be able to at least wash your hands with a 1000m diver!!!

Re: Have you guys come across Google Fi mobile network?

Not too bad, but still hard to beat some of the deals available in the UK. (About the only thing that the UK seem to be ok on)

At the moment, I get 40gb data, unlimited texts and calls for 25 quid!!

Re: Have you guys come across Google Fi mobile network?

Yep, I've been with Fi for 3+ years and love it (US based obviously). It switches (almost) seamlessly between 3 network providers to provide the best service based on signal strength and also routes calls over wifi when there is insufficient LTE signal. It does sometimes get stuck on a network but ...

Re: Scratched Sapphire Crystal

For the sake of 60 Bucks a new crystal is a no brainer. (Or leave it as it is.) Worst case scenario is that you get a bit over enthusiastic and break the crystal....... Then you not only need a new crystal but also a movement breakdown and clean to get all the **** out of it. Don't go cheap...... Se...

Re: Manchester GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 27th April 2019

A tad more subtle than the Monster as I recall, Nick! Having handled some of the new Tridents back in November, they are lovely watches and represent a step forward in many ways. But I don't see myself getting one for two reasons: 1. I already have a C60 600 GMT and a C65 Trident diver so any purch...

Re: Manchester GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 27th April 2019

Although the Elite has some similar colouring to a specific Planet Ocean model, the C60 still looks and feels like a C60, and has some common DNA with the C65. It's its own watch, not an homage. I really enjoyed the event today (yesterday now!), as I did the Edinburgh one. The Mk3s look excellent i...
