Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

I have also been contemplating this issue as the prospect of changing one of our cars looms. My thoughts as follows: 1. Call me cynical, but ultimately EVs will have to generate as much tax as petrol and diesel vehicles so there is a small window to reap any financial gains, if there are any when ev...

A few Moon Watches about today so, in recognition of the impending anniversary, it seems appropriate to give my ( never went to the ) Moon Watches some wear over the next few days.

Cheers,

Re: C60 Trident COSC or C60 Trident Bronze

With 50 odd days to chose I would sit tight - sometimes these decisions are made by a process of a gradual, creeping verdict. If it were me I would put a note on the calender for late August, leave both watches open in their boxes on the dressing table and let time shape your decision. As the saying...

Re: Date Options

It is interesting to see peoples' different views on this. Looking at others' thinking I realise that there are a few further factors pushing me towards no date options: - Since stopping working in a formal a capacity ( I now just have the never ending job list from SWMBO :lol: ) it is far less sign...

Date Options

I have put this in General as it applies to all watches including CW......... It seems to me that the date window can be a very divisive thing: positioning, colour in relation to the face, font of numbers, window detail, impact in hour numbers / markers etc. So, given that our analogue watches incre...

Re: Summer Sale 2019

I bought a few straps and a Mk2 Trident - the straps arrived, but they forgot to post the watch... Don't worry - it is just that the new 3 stage QC process takes a bit longer: 1. Is it a watch? 2. Is it a CW watch? 3. Have we got a box to put it in? Tick all three and then it can be released :D Str...

Re: It's All About Me

Totally agree. I often get asked why I don't have photos/video of any of my scuba dives. Same reason. I want to be in the moment and truly enjoy the dive, wildlife and environment rather than faff around underwater with a camera. My wife and I have discussed often that so many want to be a 'rock st...

Re: Dapper Dan does it again!!

The blue is lovely and I have been tempted by other DH models, but as soon as I see the words "mineral glass" in the spec its all over.

I can't deal with the inevitable scratches that it will pick up, so please, please start using sapphire crystal glass and charge a few quid more!

Re: Not So Much The Rolex of the Internet, perhaps more....

Hi. Paul, I am selling because it is not being used. I have done a few jobs on it, improving it a bit, but still stuff to do. It is 1972 Lwb early S3. Drives well, Google engine etc. Perfect for your winter project😉 Okay, so now I am intrigued - what precisely is a Google engine - one that's always...

Re: Not So Much The Rolex of the Internet, perhaps more....

Hi Ian, thanks for your kind offer - I seem to recall you posting about the acquisition of a old ( 1972 ish? ) Landrover that needed a bit of work. There are the proper bits of kit IMO and great fun to own, drive and maintain. Funnily enough I am considering a looking for a old Landy restoration pro...

Not So Much The Rolex of the Internet, perhaps more....

The Landrover of the watch world! Bear with me while I explain my rationale: Greater than my interest in watches is my passion for 4WD vehicles, of which there are three in the family. Now, I don't mean your Mickey Mouse pseudo efforts that are just pumped up hatch backs that will send a bit of driv...

Re: Changing battery

If the Rapide Mkii has the same arrangements as the C4 be careful not to launch the little gold clip into orbit when you release the screw - the spring under the battery is strong enough to do this, as I found out recently!

Cheers,

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Bezel Rocking movement?

Despite the potential of what a quality value for money offering the new Trident may be it is only as good as the worst one they are prepared to let out of the door. Reputations fall as quickly as they rise, regardless of how many watches that are sent out to youtubers. To be clear I am not critici...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Bezel Rocking movement?

[/quote] I have to disagree. CW can make watches right up there with the biggest names and way beyond Tag. The C8PR for example is a masterpiece (and possibly other SH21 models, though I cannot speak for them). Granted it costs a lot more than £500 and rightly so, but the VFM is industry leading. [/...
