Re: C11 Titanium Elite Chronometer LE - DISASTER

Would that not be covered under the 5 year warranty if still in date?

Nothing to worried about. CW quality is impeccable. LOL. Posted this pic ini a friends store front in Texas. Not many were impressed.
I had this happen to a previous Omega Speedmaster I owned, stem & crown come adrift.

Re: Dreaded spinning rotor

I must admit I do manually wind all my automatic watches after they have run down as I find this is the easiest way of setting them (I like to have them spot on as I am obsessive). I am now concerned I may be damaging my other watches by doing this. Chill - absolutely no panic required :) There is ...

[quote="Essex Paul" post_id=774420 time=1558013999 user_id=51313 It all depends on who you talk to, some say there is a weakness others scoff, but it's out there and doesn't go away. Sometimes I wonder if watch guys just start these rumours so they can argue - but they wouldn't...surely not.... I c...

Re: Dreaded spinning rotor

Just had an update from Customer Services, my Trident is going to be another 3 weeks with them because of the backlog, I must say I am a little bit disappointed with this news, I was told in the middle of March it would be back on my wrist within 5-6 weeks. :(

Re: The Tudor Black Bay 41 Slayer

Serious question: Is the quality of the MK2 better or the same as the Tudor? I own both & as much as I admire the MK2 it is a fantastic watch for the price, the Tudor is in a different league when it comes to quality & finish. You really need to pop to a dealer & handle a Tudor to appreciate the in...

Re: CW c65 Automatic vs. Oris Sixty-Five (Movember)

I am sure I will be in the minority here, but I actually prefer the Oris. I think the minute markers on the bezel look good, I like the lume dot on the second hand, the date looks good at 6 o clock & it has the logo where it should be. I am sure whichever one you choose you will be very happy., good...

Re: Advice for someone with a 6.5 inch / 165 mm wrist

I think the C65 Trident would be fine for you, you can always buy it & assess it as you have a 60 day return policy. Here is a pic with my 42mm Tudor GMT on my 6.5" wrist (I know this is a CW forum, but my Trident is away for repair at the mo). Good luck with whatever you decide. https://i.imgur.com...

Re: Diver shortlist and some convincing needed

Hi Dave, I have a number of Dive watches as they are my type of watch & they range from Seiko to Rolex, but I can assure you that the Trident is a solid well made watch that I would actually put on par with my Tag Aquaracer 500m which cost quite a bit more. The fact that you get 60 days to assess it...

Re: Disappointed with Christopher Ward

I agree if you have wilfully damaged it, but a scratch would not really make it lose 5 mins so in that case it is not fit for purpose. We need a fully qualified solicitor to clarify this one. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :problem: Obviously! A scratch won’t make it lose 5mins and the time loss does rend...

Re: Disappointed with Christopher Ward

I was always under the impression that if the fault was within a certain time you could demand a replacement or refund as it was classed as not fit for purpose. Following on from my previous post I have just spoken to my son who is at University training to be a Lawyer & he directed me towards the ...

Re: Disappointed with Christopher Ward

Agreed. The watch is not fit for purpose. The did you, didn’t you wear, or scratch it is irrelevant. Neil But surely, if it transpires that the watch has a fault with the mechanism but is worn and subsequently scratched, all CW are obliged to do is offer a repair? I would agree that a replacement o...

Re: Disappointed with Christopher Ward

Just as an aside, why do peeps sell off watches they previously liked just because they have a spat with the maker? Surely that’s cutting off your snout to spite yer fizzog? ...is it meant to “teach ‘em a lesson?” I have always wondered this myself, you are just denying yourself the enjoyment of th...
