Re: CW then and now

Just to clarify Peter....you may think they are part of the establishment now, although I disagree, but just to clarify, CW works with the same margins now that they did when they started out. the costs, overhead, move to Switzerland etc have all had their effect on pricing over the years. As much ...

Re: Reduce desk diving damage

Or........if you have got one of these: ROLEX.jpg Wear one of these on your wrist :) Although as far as I can make out many Rolex owners are a bit apprehensive about wearing desirable models like that at all. Fortunately there are still many that just treat them as watches and wear them normally, r...

Re: How many CW watches do you own

Peaked at 8, now down to 7 with another halfway out the door. Not a reflection of the watches, more that I had a honeymoon period buying frenzy around 2015 shortly after getting my first Trident. Since then my needs have changed and my opportunities to wear a wide variety of watches has dimished. Ha...

Re: QC Issues C9 Chronometer - Excellent Resolution by Mike France

Excellent outcome - you were reasoned and logical in your approach to this issue and CW ( in the form of MF ) clearly reciprocated. Every one wins - you get a watch you want with the all important 'feel good factor' and CW demonstrate their commitment to customer service and satisfaction. :clap: Che...

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

Is no one going to mention the placement of the logo. :D Seems only fitting that since I have been so resolutely anti the placement at 9 that I should applaud the fact that the pills have finally started to work and the name has returned to its rightful position :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: And to w...

How Careful / Paranoid Are You About Wearing Your Best / Most Treasured?

DavecUK's post about selling his Rolex and AP (which, BTW is a decision that I can completely understand the rationale behind) prompted me to think about how often and for what activities ( keep it clean!) people wear their expensive and / most treasured watches. A few days ago I was in the garage d...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

Loving it, mate. Especially getting 60-65 mpg in normal traffic conditions for my 12 mile commute. And that’s without holding up the YMPWs or GKHWs any more than I’m being held up by the garden centre mob in pale blue Micras. The two wheeled Darth Vader lookalikes are a different matter of course, ...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

The sad thing is that future generations will never get to experience a proper engine with a proper gearbox. Just the soulless electric stuff 'Tis sad indeed - with overpopulation and ever increasing restrictions on our freedoms to do what we wish, championed by ill informed yoghurt knitting do-goo...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

I am not really complaining. We are very fortunate to have been able to move to such a beautiful part of the country and to be surrounded by our own land.
But I still harbour desires to get another bike and go off exploring like you and Downer!

Cheers

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

Yes, I would and did. However, it's not for everyone and certainly won't save most people money...not yet anyway. The initial purchase cost is so high and in the case of my car it's essentially an expensive throw away item at 8 years. If something major happens to it even past 3 years old it will b...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

Something else that will need to change is human behaviour when crossing roads, car parks, junctions etc You'd be surprised how many people look with their ears when it comes to vehicle awareness. The amount of oblivious pedestrians that walked in front of our moving Nissan Leaf, especially at park...
