Re: What's in Name?

^^^^ You are absolutely right - as of this moment in time there are no CW watches that float my boat, but I will have a continued interest in the brand. If they produce something that I really like I will seriously consider buying again - we all struggle to resist new and shiny things! As long as th...

Re: Blue is the Colour - SOTBDWC nbg - January 2020

Seiko certainly do some interesting blue dials. This is my current favourite. https://i.postimg.cc/L4knM26b/1-E9-F53-C5-ED7-E-40-B6-B7-E5-625-EE796-D79-B.jpg WRT the comments concerning their size. Yes on paper their dimensions would seem large, however in my experience they wear well, in particula...

I don't like their current direction or their current design language thus I'm unlikely to buy again
You just condensed my 9 paragraphs into one sentence :lol:

Re: On stepping things up

I concur with a lot of what Soporsche has said - it is easy to spend quite a lot of money ( either individually or cumulatively) while not achieving the objective of having a watch that meets the technical criteria and the emotional ones. Equally, there is always the risk of ending up with something...

Re: What's in Name?

I'm curious. Do the members who stand by this assertion that they won't by CW now that Chris has left the company stand by this value with all purchases? In other words, do you only buy products from companies with the founder still at the helm? It must seriously limit your purchases. I think the o...

Re: Made in........

We get our beef and lamb from farmer friends who rear their animals within a couple of miles of us here in glorious North Devon - to paraphrase Gregg Wallace 'meat doesn't get better than that!'

What's in Name?

The recent departure of C Ward Esq. from the company has given me pause for thought as to whether this has any impact on future purchases and whether it devalues the brand. Clearly there are many products that we all buy that purport to be what they are clearly not: a new Tata F Pace? Suits you sir;...

Re: A Lasting Legacy - Important News from Christopher Ward

A turnover of £200 million in the future? - so somewhere in the region of 15- 20 times the current level of sales (if we take the oft quoted number of 20,000 pa and assume an average price of around £600 per watch).


This time next year Rodney we'll be millionaire's!! 8)

Re: A little British-American Humour

Paul, you've hit some of my countrymen dead straight on. Hell is where one goes to suffer, right? We won't say anything about old British drinking songs, but the noteworthy dates are correct, at least as I remember them being taught in my youth. Sad that. The irony is that when I see how some of my...

Re: A little British-American Humour

Just to develop the theme and add a little balance ... An American was telling one of his favorite jokes to a group of friends. "Hell is a place where the cooks are British, the waiters are French, the policemen are Germans, and the trains are run by Italians." The lone European in the group pondere...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

Unless I missed something, it's interesting to note that environmental issues don't feature in the decision making / consideration process - it is more about cost and performance. I guess that is just the reality of the drivers ( no pun intended ) that are needed to move people over to what is alleg...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

So....just to pull this back to the question posed in the title: The EQC is essentially a GLC with the internal combustion bits removed and some electric motors + battery put in their place combined with a cosmetic makeover. The EQC starts at £65k and the GLC starts at £40k £25k buys enough diesel t...
