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...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Not sure if this more appropriate for the non CW of the day thread, or the what are you listening to thread. A quiet Friday in with some vinyl for company.

Re: Staring into the C60 Abyss

I’m not too bothered about the watch, but the strap looks like an interesting move into additional colours for the hybrid straps. That read and black combination looks very appealing.

Trying this on a red rock canvas strap. I think it looks good.

Re: Do I want an Omega?

Every time I have a new watch, my father always notices it and comments on how good it looks. He then goes on to ask what make it is. Whenever I reply, he always looks a little disappointed and says “Your uncle always wore an Omega” the uncle in question being his older brother he always looked up t...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Ok, now that we have the original C60 design suggestions on a white background I have re-created the 8 main options we have discussed so far. These are really 4 pairs, where in each pair there is a blue bezel version and a black bezel version. Excellent job with all your photoshop efforts so far, w...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Also to remind, as its not been mentioned recently, that the option of a display case back, with 300m WR , is available to us; again my preference. Guy Are we sure that this is the case? The reason I ask is because when this was suggested for the GMT FLE which didn’t get the support, it was implied...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

A question regarding the Dartmouth mock up with the steel case and bronze bezel. Is the inner ring between the bezel insert and the crystal, part of the case or part of the bezel? If it is the case, as I suspect by looking at the close up photos in the CW website, then the bi-metallic option might l...

Re: Latest arrival

IWC petit prince chronograph.
Clue 1, not a CW
Clue 2, a bit of blue
Clue 3, someone was close, after Qubo posted about the MK XVIII and a reference to the sky
Clue 4, 43mm SS case.
And you already have a blue IWC so are partial to the brand.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Just a word of caution remembering the way the first draft of this FLE went. Shall we wait to see which model is chosen before running away with designs for only one model. I’m not photoshop wizard, but shall we look at a few Dartmouth design to balance this out a little? Would the smoked dial and/o...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Not forgetting a display case back is feasible. Guy I think that depends on which size is chosen. The display back offered for the GMT FLE was only available because the tooling had been already done for the Apex. I suspect if a trident of a different size is chosen, then a display back may be cost...
