Re: Review Omega Seamaster Diver 300M with White Dial

I saw one at Watch Time NYC a few weeks ago. It's a lovely thing. I wish they had gone witht he blue bezel from the rest of the Seamaster line though. I already have a white dial black bezel watch (CW C60 SH21) and so it will be difficult for Omega to persuade me to buy one. Maybe if I see it under ...

Re: C60 Franken . . . Mk II.

That's very cool Gary. The dial looks great with the clean, modern bezel. Please keep giving us these ideas and inspirations.

Declan Strange (showroom manager) will do his best to get you the best discount on the day. They may have a 10% showroom discount which makes a difference.

I agree about the ruby. If you read the ablogtowatch review then you'll see that Ariel Adams is fond of itsince it was his idea. I prefer the negative space that omitting the ruby would have left.

Re: Is the red, ceramic bezel going away?

^^Squalus They didn't mention spares. We've been told that CW are much more aware of the need to keep a pile of spares available as their watches age (comment made at London GTG, I think). A ceramic bezel is a tough piece of kit. I suspect that anything that can destroy a ceramic bezel will probably...

Re: C65 Black and Gold

It's also black and red gold which doesn't work as a JPS inspired livery either. It's in the retro collection though. Does that count?

Re: C65 Black and Gold

The music for the C65 B&G video should have been used in a Bond film.

It suits the watch beautifully.

Thanks Steve. I'm not really into the red bezels but this might be a topic of interest for those who do want one.

Is the red, ceramic bezel going away?

I listened to the Bristol GTG via YouTube. During this GTG I am sure that Mike France said that the red, ceramic bezel was going to gently fade away. The reason given (I think) was that the bezel manufacturer claimed that it was too difficult to make. Mike said that CW had offered to buy the "chemic...

Re: Holiday watch decisions

Another vote for the C8 UTC. It has two time zones (but one hour isn't that difficult),is smart enough, sporty enough and different enough to work at the MotoGP. What a great holiday. I'm going to be very jealous of the weather and the MotoGP visit. Please post a pic or two gratuitously showing a wa...

Re: CW Retro Dive Watches

Oris split their dive watches into three sections: Aquis, Divers and ProDviers. Why shouldn't CW do something similar? It seems a logical split to me and pushes the notion that the C60 and C65 are separate ranges with different characters. It's good marketing.
