Why the date is 8th on a lot of brands ?
I think it's because the figure 8 is the single large figure on its own , also in respect of the way digital numbers are constructed 8 uses all the bars ? if that makes sense :thumbup:

Re: Mystery of website watches all showing same times?

I'm led to understand that 10 past 10 for the hands is used as it shows off the whole watch face better. I doubt the watches used for advertising have movements inside hence the crown seated.

CW Advert in this months Dockyard Dandy.

A rather nice full page advert appeared in this months Navy News, concerning a Trident with HMS Prince of Wales ships crest and silhouette of the carrier. A little Google search came up with an article in the Portsmouth News of the collaboration (link included) which is dated from Monday 13 August 2...

Citizen have the Red Arrows & Royal Marines Commando editions.
Yes Chris, I forgot about those. I wonder if that is the Official fifth then. I seem to remember during my service the navigating officer either had CWC or Seiko :thumbup:

New Recruits, CW Email today.

An interesting email arrived today from CW. Reading thru there is mention of M.O.D/HMAF approved versions arriving in the Autumn. I'm know this is not a new venture/association for CW as I am already the proud owner of the 'Submariner' "Kissing Kippers" and there are plenty of 'Junior Service' RAF a...

Re: CWL of the day

For lesson number 3 on the Alto Sax today was the C9 Harrison BDD. A classic combination I hope you'll agree :thumbup:
Unfortunately my playing is more akin to Eric Morcombe and Les Dawson, "all the right notes just not necessarily in the right order" :lol:

Re: Tigerchris Feb 2019

An excellent collection. I must admit I was drawn to the Alpha, looked like a good Copy/Homage (aka Shark trident) :thumbup:

CWL Finance option.

I really like tha last iteration of the Mk2 Trident 316L LE, as advertised on the web and the latest Loupe magazine. Looking at the interest free finance option it shows 'Close Bros' as the company, however, whilst my last purchase was thru the same company I have since received an email stating tha...

Re: Elliot Brown Holton Professional - new British Military Issue watch

As a veteran I understood why.... Whether you love or hate the look of these every aspect has been designed for a purpose. Even in the bits that you dont see. A defined standard set out at the beginning of the project. Unilaterally across our armed forces once a standard is set it is never dropped....

C60 Trident pro 600 blue/blue with a dash of Lume going on, considering its cloudy outside the luminosity is excellent :thumbup:
