Re: Clach77 - June 2019

Fantastic collection of CW's :clap:

I noticed you have no C11's, have they never appealed or did you own but move on?

Re: Father's Day

Got taken for a curry last night, first ever family meal out that the kids have paid for :shock:

No new watches but I've been on the Barton straps site, taking advantage of the DADSDAY discount code for $10 off orders of $50 or more :thumbup:

Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

My C60 MK1 is in for a service and I've been quoted £250 + return postage , battery change on another was £20. Have to admit to being surprised at the service cost because all the threads I'd searched mentioned £150! My C60 mk1 was serviced last summer for £99. I can't believe the price has gone up...

Re: New C65 Trident Vintage Mk II

I did own the C65 Vintage mk1 for a while until it fell victim to a consolidation exercise to part fund the Panerai. I think it is a nicely sized and very versatile watch which can be dressed up or down, on the bracelet or a variety of straps. The mk2 looks very similar on first glance and a subtle ...

Re: Review of Trident Elite 1000 LE by Fratello

Well balanced and positive review. The bit that reminded me of one of my previous errors was the reference to orange and how he wasn’t sure how he would think about it in 10 years time! :D I remember nearly buying a LV Kermit many years ago. Changed my mind because I thought the green bezel would b...

Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

Grand Seiko quartz service - 80 GBP CW C6 Quartz service - 150 GBP New Ronda 715 movement - 12 GBP Hmmm. I think the C6 service price quoted must be a mistake/error. My C60 Trident mk1 service within the past year was £99. iirc, CW charged about £15-20 for a battery change so not sure how all of a ...

Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

My wife has a fairy decent Raymond Weil watch. I was quoted about £105 for a battery change and pressure test from Ernest Jones and it must have been about £90 in Beaverbrooks. Totally stunned how much they wanted for a 10 minute job and a £1 battery. Of course virtually none of the high street jewe...
