Re: CWL of the day

April is going to be my CW month. I've already posted a couple of C7 Apex pictures. Now it's the turn of my C9 Moonphase. Here was a CW where no one could complain about the lume (there wasn't any) :lol: :lol: :lol: The angle the dial is presented at makes a huge difference to the look of the watch ...

Re: Wasn’t this a contender for the FLE?

I wonder if year of the chrono has become year of the GMT?

Re: CWL of the day

Thanks Gary and MiniMpi. The lumed chapter ring and date wheel aren't normally obvious so the lume shot shows aspects of the watch that might have passed a lot of people by. The lume on the C7 Apex isn't great and it shows that it was made before the CW "lume revolution" that came along with the C60...

Re: CWL of the day

My C7 Apex escaped from its box and has enjoyed a week on my wrist.

Re: C60 Elite GMT 1000

Well I like the black dialed one. It's the red text and red GMT hand that are winning me over. Is this enough to get over my dislike of the hour hand? Probably but I'll need the financial gods to align before I can buy one in the next few months.

Re: Great move from CW

It just goes to show that, these days, you can't do anything nice without receiving opprobrium. I am reminded of the adage "If you can't say something nice then say nothing." I kind of wish I hadn't highlighted this in the first place.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Thanks Guy. In the end I've been softening the strap through wear. When I wore the watch last year on holiday in York, the Bremont dealer I visited was surprised at how stiff the strap was. Given how often I wear this I can now live with the strap and I'll try your tip before I wear the watch again....

Re: Non CW of the Day

Bremont MB III. The more I wear it, the more I like it. It's a great watch with a horrid, very stiff strap.
