Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

I’ve had chance to watch the video as I was unable to do so live. Very interesting discussion, thanks to everyone who organised and thanks to Guy for directly asking the question I posted in the questions thread.

Re: Your 2018 watch haul?

I bought two this year. In January with some inheritance from my mother I purchased this. B95F5C06-8490-4D46-AD29-37153AC74654.jpeg It has become my favourite and most worn watch. I then accidentally added one of these a few months later. B9F00BD3-AB7B-4DF8-8DF2-2A1D4420BB26.jpeg It had to go back u...

Re: Questions - Chat with Chris - Edinburgh GTG - January 2019

Without getting too personal with the three co-founders, I would be interested to know what their exit strategy is. Without being rude, the three are no spring chickens so it would be nice for us followers and collectors to have an insight into the longer term future of the brand. In this interview ...

Re: ETA 2894 and ETA 2000 movements. Who uses them?

Can I recommend watchbase.com

You can search by watch type https://watchbase.com/watches

Or by calibre https://watchbase.com/calibers

There is plenty of info on ETA movements as well https://watchbase.com/eta

Re: C65 Trident Bronze SH21 - Patinated Edition

I’m not sure if this a popular misconception or whether I’m misinterpreting something. I often read comments against the pre patina watch as though it is assumed that the patina has been finished off and there will be no further aging. I went for the pre patina version of the trident as I was not a ...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Hi Iain To be honest for a reasonably high end brand I would have expected the cost of the bracelet to be significantly higher. It is a really nice bracelet. Fit and finish is really up there with a good snug fit to the watch head. The screwed links are fairly slim and it wears very soft and comfor...

Re: Non CW of the Day

https://s33.postimg.cc/dxr0vf5kv/DSC_0736.jpg Paul, can I ask you for some thoughts on the quality of the bracelet you have on this watch please? The reason I ask is because I own the 42mm version of this watch and have been in touch with my local AD to enquire about the availability of a bracelet....

Re: Travel writers

Peter Moore has some good books - some of which are very funny. I was going to add Peter Moore myself before noticing someone had beat me to it. His early books as a backpacking Australian (The wrong way home, Swahili for the broken Hearted and the full Montezuma) are the full on lighthearted adven...

Re: Chat with Chris 2018 Questions

Has the loss of JJ affected timelines for further development of the SH21? New models in the pipeline? I think this question could be expanded to ask about future recruitment plans for a replacement for JJ, or if there aren’t any, what is CW going to do regarding future developments? Are they for e...
