My Favourite Watch Collaboration

Not too long ago I shared my watch building story, warts and all, when I put together my orange Seiko SKX. I said at the time I might tackle something else at some point and I’d been thinking long and hard about what to do. A couple of forum watches have inspired my latest build. Bjorn has his rever...

The Inside Track

I’ve been thinking about this for a while and didn’t really know where best to post about it, but seeing as forum members can’t start threads in the inside track section of the forum I thought the off topic area might be the best. I’m going to start by quoting Kips introduction to the outside track ...

Re: With watches things have always got to feel right.

I’ve been lucky enough to have owned several watches from the well known brands and completely agree that a watch has to feel right. I’ve had a good number of watches that should have been perfect. Several Omegas, an Explorer, a JLC, and they all went for what could be argued to be trivial reasons. ...

You mean they started out as a budget brand and not everyone was a fan, however they’ve been upping their game steadily over the years and are now taken seriously by most people?

And Kia have changed their logo….

Re: Non CW of the Day

I’ve got the day off today. Having a lazy morning before my friend arrives and we head to Manchester for beers and Green Day at the cricket ground. Best to wear something suitable for the occasion.

Re: Which car brand is....

If Omega are Audi then surely all the VW owned car manufacturers should be Swatch owned brands.

Lamborghini could be Blancpain and Porsche must be Glasshutte Original.

VW would probably be Longines based on numbers sold within the group.

Re: Non CW of the Day

I just had to google that to learn more about it. Here’s a link to the Sinn website for anyone who is curious about this technology. I’d not heard about this before.

Re: New innovations from CW - your thoughts?

To me the Bel Canto and the Twelve represented new avenues for CW, new departures if you will, in the sense that they had never attempted a sonnerie or an integrated sports watch before. Are you forgetting about the old C20 Steve which was an early attempt at an integrated bracelet watch? Of course...

Re: New innovations from CW - your thoughts?

My question: what have CW not produced before that you would be keen to see? I’m not intending this as a sarcastic answer but I’d like to see CW produce a longer lasting range of watches and a fully functioning service and repair department. Picking up on some of the elements of Peteos post in whic...

Re: New Blue Ombré C60 Pro 300 Bronze

I like the matt finish to the dial and bezel on these bronze Pro300 watches. The stainless steel versions would look a great if they had these as well.
