Re: Calling speedmaster moonwatch (hesalite) owners

Mine is mid-80's and the alignment is perfect. To be honest it's not even anything I'd looked at before because I always leave the second hand running because I like watching it, lol

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Interest? A large measure of derision if you trawl the watch forums - their most likely customers I would submit - offset by recognition of their products. They get panned mercilessly for their branding attempts while being recognised for their quality, complications and VFM. I have emphasized in e...

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Speaking as a marketing guy, I would not want my branding to actively put so many potential customers off my product to anything like the extent that CW's current branding does. Once again I reiterate I am not talking about forumites (who one would expect to have strong and probably conservative op...

Re: C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition - Black

First fail in the 316L range for me. I don’t really see the point in another black faced Trident. I’ve owned all of the others and thought the brightly coloured faces were an integral part of the design (although admittedly blue isn’t exactly a rare choice for a face). I loved the yellow and orange ...

Fuji. . . 56mm lens
I just love the Fuji 56mm f1.2 lens. Probably my favourite ever lens.

As it happens I’ve never tried it for any watch shots as I tend to use my 35mm f1.4 for any ‘product’ stuff.

Will definitely give it a go soon though!

Re: A Trio of Rapides

I’ve somehow amassed a collection of these as well now! Started with the white panda and blue LE COSC quartz and soon followed with the blue face auto. Then couldn’t resist the red/dlc prototype just before Xmas. After that I spotted others in the sale so bought a couple to compare - both black face...

Anyone else having problems with PM’s?

I’ve had a few issues recently when I’ve sent private messages to people and they’ve said they haven’t seen them.

I can see the message has left my outbox which would indicate they’ve been opened but the person I’ve sent them to says they haven’t received them.

Re: January Sale 2019

8 sale watches on eBay already with £150-£200 premiums.

4 from the same seller.

‘Smart’ tactic to get them listed immediately as it gives them 3 days before general public can see the true sale prices. . .

Only that it’s ‘officially’ called a January sale 😂

I’ve owned an Ascari and a VW4 but the only one I’ve hung on to, so far anyway, is this one.

I think it’s the slightly less ‘cluttered’ dial that’s helped it hang around :)

Re: Which is the most popular / desirable C70 ?

Speaking of C7's - its reminded me that the C7 IRR COSC is another rare beast ... only seen one for Sale this year ... Welcome. The Bluebird is lovely though not actually a C70. That’s good to know. I’ve not seen many either :) I will almost certainly get round to selling mine in the new year (alon...

Re: Clearance section

I couldn’t resist the red on red C7 auto. I like the Rosso Corsa when it came out but I’ve never liked day/date faces so the simpler version is just what I was looking for :)

Re: PINION Ex-Demo's

I've not been aware of Pinion before so had a good look through their site even though the ex-demos had all gone. Some nice looking dials and would like to see a TT with the shade of blue they've used on some of their other models. The area around Henley-on-Thames is getting to be the watch equival...
