Sounds like CW are moving forward with their plans to improve International Shipping etc. :thumbup:

@Markornot - I'm intrigued as to why you don't want to take up CW's offer that will expedite shipping. Seems like a no brainer to me.

Re: Bronze Magrette Waterman

Not sure it's right to seek deposits based on a prototype, when the website states: Note: These are images of the prototype. There maybe slight changes made to the production model. . . . . but it also states (on FORaSEC at least) " You can cancel the deposit during the waiting period and receive a...

Very nice. The case and dial look like a 6105 inspired design (a classic) - the version that predates the 6309 Turtle.

Would be interested to see how the patina develops with time.

Re: Spring 2019 promo codes

Given the concern about enironmentally friendly packaging expressed at the Edinburgh GTG, it is somewhat baffling and incongruous to post out these "individual" vouchers - I had an email notification of the code as well as the posted version.

- 8 secs is well out of COSC spec is it not (which is -4/+6 IIRC)?

Re: C8 M2.04 Limited Edition

Does absolutely nothing for me I'm afraid and it's not just because of the Rudder Metal or inflated price. I think the dial and hands are a mess - I get that they are inspired by Concordes instruments, but it's a 1 out of 10 from me. I know some on here have them on order, who I'm sure will love th...

Re: Wine advice

Rioja gets my vote on the red wine front and there is also a white version IIRC.

Re: Introducing The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M In Ceramic And Titanium

Not a fan of the skeleton hands or the scalloped bezel and I do prefer a date window as well....and at that price I'd expect a bracelet as well as a rubber strap... :thumbdown:

Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

^^ looks like Seiko hands with a slightly smaller hour hand to me. Not a fan at all and it looks like there aren't many other changes besides some small tweeks. I wish they would have gone for a more original design. https://cdn2.chrono24.com/images/uhren/images_88/s7/8516788_s210.jpg?v=15439836139...

Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

I hate to be that guy, but the twin flags motif was originally motorsport only. Then it was generally C7. Now it's on the dial of a flagship piece along with the serif text. Yet not on the art metal piece? Perhaps I need to catch up with the video to see if its use more widely on the range was disc...
