Re: That super compressor

I have one of the black sand with the misaligned text. In real life, on the wrist, you can't tell that the text is misaligned at all. If you have better than 20/20 or human macro vision you might tell but for normal mortals it just looks like dial text.

Re: Two Seamasters and a C60

Omega have had the skeleton hands on the Seamaster 300M since 1993. The new Trident hands came in the 3rd generation in 2018(?). I've never been a fan of the the 3rd generation Trident hour hand as it seems like it was borrowed from a Seiko diver. It has great finishing but has never excited me as a...

This is a great idea. It does mean I have to read the paperwork though :oops:

Re: Simplified CAD models of watches to determine best size?

I suspect that you would have to create quite a lot of printed models and files. First you have to consider case size, then you have to consider lug tip - to -lug tip distance and possible even lug shape and curvature. Finally there is the bezel/no-bezel element. Physical dimensions are not the only...

Re: UK Lockdown causing delays at CW towers

Thank you Kip. It's not unexpected given the situation in the UK. Let's hope that all at CW continue to be safe and healthy this time too. And this goes for everyone, especially those in the UK who are going to have a hard time for the start of the year.

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

I shall be steering clear as these sales have a tendency to trick you into buying the deal not the watch and there isn’t a specific model I’m after currently. I’ve done it 3 times in the past and sold all 3. Don’t buy just because it’s cheap would be my best advice. Far better using vouchers/codes ...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

On a separate note the remaining C65 Super Compressor Black Sand will definitely feature in the sale. They should be there at 30% off. I had an email from CW that confirms this. Will these be from the original batch with the misaligned red text? I don't know. But, I suspect there's only been one ba...

Re: Is it possible to see C60 Sapphire or C65 Super Compressor in the Jan sale?

The remaining C65 Super Compressor Black Sand watches will be in the forthcoming sale. This is due to poor sales figures as Ferg has said. Those who bought one of these should have received an email from CW about this. DM me or check your junk folders if you bought a C65 Black Sand and haven't heard...

Review of the C65 Chrongraph

There doesn't seem to be a lot of love for the C65 Chronograph recently. I found a review from Fratello which might spark some interest.

I'm still not sure that it's a watch for me though.

If you want to put your Omega on a watch winder

Thanks to an article on Hodinkee I found a useful cheat sheet for the best watch winder settings for Omega watches. I'm not sure if anyone here actually keeps their Omega on a winder (there's a lot of manual wind Speedmasters on here...) but here is a link if you want to see it. https://www.omegawat...
