Re: Watchfinder

It depends if you’re buying outright, or trading a watch in part ex. There is the quick transaction side of the part ex which removes the hassle of trying to sell a valuable watch privately which does have some merit. However note that they tend to make low offers for your watch and price your purch...

Re: CWL of the day

Posted the blue trident GMT bought in the recent nearly new clearance back today. It was never going to be able to compete with the black dial on this.

Re: Non CW of the Day

This has been worn at some point during most days since it arrived in September. It’s only stopped once when I went away for a long weekend without it.

Re: Recommendations required please.......

..............So for me that means any alternative has to tick all of the following boxes: - Robust, conservatively designed with a well proportioned quality case that easily slips under a cuff. - High quality bracelet, with a range of adjustment. - Clear legible dial and hands with applied indices...

Re: Tag Heuer love?

My first mechanical watch was an Aquaracer I saved up for and bought as a gift to myself for reaching 40. Still have the watch but it doesn’t get that much wear compared to others I now own. I wouldn't sell it though and I still really like the watch.

Re: CWL of the day

It’s the small details that make a difference, I love how the prongs on the trident second hand match the shape of the hour hand.

Re: Favourite watch buy of 2019

I’ve had three watches arrive this year, the first was a Bremont S301 which I found at a great price via the bargain hunters thread. I wore it for about 6-7 months and then sold it for what I originally paid when I fell out of love with it. Second was the MK3 trident I won in the forum competition. ...

Zenith are another brand who extend the warranty when you register your watch with them. 2 years standard warranty, extended to three.

Re: CWL of the day

These mk3 tridents certainly do catch the light, and not just the light catcher case. These hands look to be about to catch fire.

Re: Admin Team meets at CW towers

Dave, have you tried bypassing the forum portal page and going straight to the forum index page? As noted by "Timor54" above, it seems it is probably the portal page that has the problem with remembering stuff... If you login and then always use ww w.christopherwardforum.com/index.php as the first ...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

If this concept is being resurrected, should we also include the original FLE GMT option? I know when it changed from a 2 tone ceramic to aluminium a lot of people were put off, myself included. However the possibility of having a single colour ceramic bezel with white face and black hands is quite ...

Re: Looks like we're getting a white dial trident gmt

There’s a higher resolution photo of this watch that has been posted on the CW enthusiasts Facebook page. Looks like the hands and markers are the usual polished finish, not blackened. The date wheel is also white text on a black background. Not sure if the ones photographed are pre production model...
