Re: Jan sale

There was a C60 Titanium 600 V1 on there briefly with 60% off at £385!! Had it in the basket but then it was gone. Hope that the bigger discount items go to those who will keep them rather than selling them on for a profit...A little while ago shortly after a sale I did ask an ebay seller if they h...

Re: How does the C8 Power Reserve wear?

I owned one a while back and was very surprised to find it got marked by wearing a nato strap (the case-back). I think because it is a sort of matt finish and not completely smooth it can get flat spots that notice. Was that a black or SS version? Not sure, but maybe even the SS Damaskos have a coa...

Re: How does the C8 Power Reserve wear?

Don't dismiss the DLC coating. Had mine since they first came out and not a nick on it. Check out wikipedia to see just how hard a DLC coating is. It's all just personal preference. It's a large watch and the black case is just a little less conspicuous with warmer tones. Possibly better in winter ...

Re: Crown and crystal swap?

Never bothered to look at his model but did because of your post.

Lovely looking thing IMO. Is the Lume any good?

Re: New C1 Moonglow

I’ve had my Moonglow for a couple of weeks , what I have noticed is that the smoke dial in bright light & at certain angles looks more like a mirror & therefore takes away the effect of the “second “ moon , which is disappointing- to this wearer! Also haven’t been able to see the luminous Moonglow ...

I Know, I Know...(Logo Opinion)

I know its been done to death but I bought a new trident the other day and found I couldn't live with the lack of anything noticeable on the upper half of the dial. Purely because of the unbalanced dial I won't be buying ANY of their watches that have the name at 9, which severely limits my choices ...

If the hands are also bronze, will they discolour too?

Sent an email to CW asking the question a couple of months ago but didn't get an answer...
The hands aren't bronze. Gold plated, allegedly.
That makes sense, thanks :0)

Re: Poor Service Provided by Christopher Ward

Russell, Congratulations on your first post, over 10 years after joining the forum! That must be some kind of record! :) I'm assuming that you haven't had your C6 serviced in the 10 years you've had it (I know it's quartz, not automatic, but they still need servicing occasionally), so it's probably...

Outbox

How come I have a couple of messages that seem to be stuck in my Outbox?

Do they stay there until they have been read by the recipient?

Re: Staring into the C60 Abyss

I've been told the Lume wasn't up to much on the first two titanium models. I wonder if this one will be better?
