Re: What would you tell yourself?

Should have bought the two tone sub I wanted in 2003. In hindsight I could afford it (before kids), but at the time it seemed a lot if money at the time. Back then they were still sensible money, not 5 figures like they are now. Now, with 4 kids I can't justify one. Soon be buying cars for the kids...

Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

This forum is not the complaint department, nor customer service. The CW website has the contact information for CS as well as others. That is where people should be reaching out to for resolutions. They are free to comment on the process here as well as resolutions, but we cannot solve issues that...

Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

The forum is still valuable to CW, because it shows they are a 'real' company, not just a fancy website. I bought my first CW after reading the forum, which gave me the confidence to buy. The company does seem to have a disdainful attitude toward the forum. They appear to read it occasionaly, but wi...

Maybe, just maybe the “Dartmouth dial configuration” was the most popular for a reason... :silent:
Yep, I'd go for Dartmouth for that reason.
First new CW I've considered buying for a long time.

Re: How much should you spend on a watch?

Are you talking about a single watch, or annual spend? Either way, it depends on your circumstances. If you are single then you can spend as much as you like without starving or living on the street. If you have a wife and 4 kids, a relatively low percentage of your salary would be reasonable. Howev...

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Are there any other rewards associated with a purchase?
Like collection at a lunch in Maidenhead?
How about the letter will be signed by all three founders?
I like the look of it, but need something special to tip it over dropping a grand on one.

Purchased 37 & currently own 3 (waiting for 1 more to be released and one hopefully on used market).
Anyone got a higher purchased to current ratio?

Ironically, the only real damage on it is on the clasp from being worn at my desk!!!!
Just noticed the wear on my SMP clasp.
I wonder how much Omega charge for a new little gold Ω?
Still, it's 20 years old!

Yes
5, 2, 1, 3, 4 order of preference.

Why not link this with the CWE Facebook LE, more likely to get the required numbers?

Live langoustines used as a weapon?

I can see that being the next craze with teenage hoodies.
As stop and search ramps up, they will resort to carrying shell fish. It's my dinner officer. Here I also have the lemon butter sauce. Can't get nicked.

Re: Don't Mention The War........

In the interest of fairness to the moderators, I decided to find out if kitchen knives are purely weapons or can actually have a peaceful purpose. Of course I know we have regular table knives at home to eat with. They are always laid out on the table when I sit down to dinner. If there is no smalle...

I don’t know if I’m just moaning or it’s true feelings but has it changed too much from a mk1?
No more so than, for example, an early SMP to the new one.
