Re: C65 Dartmouth QC Question

Absolutely. I can see it, you can see it, and it shouldn't be like that. As others have said, if it bothers you and CW are willing to listen, seek some kind of resolution with CW.

Re: C65 AM GT Limited Edition

Yes, I'm surprised to see another quartz after everything that's been said at the GTGs. But then again, what a quartz! COSC HAQ and more jewels than the majority of the three-hander mechanicals! Well cool!

Re: Protecting Stainless Bracelets

That looks great. How long do you think it might last before you have to replace it? Good question! I don't know! When applied to cars it's reckoned to last for years. I think the weak point will be the edges of the film with constant 'scuffing' will start to lift the edges over time. Once there's ...

Protecting Stainless Bracelets

OK, here's a topic which divides opinion- protecting bracelets from damage. In particular the clasp which attracts the brunt of desk diving damage. There seem to be two camps- those who feel that after spending their hard-earned on a new watch want to maintain it as good looking as they can and don'...

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

I agree Steve. I wonder if it's purely circumstantial or whether there are other market forces at play. Ball are a company which seems to have a far more robust following Stateside which is understandable given their branding USP. There are other US brands which are more popular elsewhere- Monta, Sh...

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

I finally picked up this pre-order Roadmaster last week after a wait of nearly a year. A few pictures for now-

Re: New arrival today (white SMP)

Congrats. I think a two piece collection of the black and the white SMP could most likely cater for just about all dress-up, dress-down occasions. Beautiful watches. I love the bracelet on those, but do agree the white looks especially good on black rubber.

Re: Non CW of the Day

^^ Thanks Mark. I can see how that would be a frustrating experience. Once is unfortunate but twice is just plan annoying. Glad the rubber strap is a good alternative.

[I'm still waiting for Omega to get the bits to repair the clasp on the bracelet (for the second time).
That's worrying Mark... what was the issue with the clasp if you don't mind me asking?
