Re: Non CW of the Day

Running -5s over the first week. Not per day - the week. Pretty impressive.

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

Update received this morning from Newmark regarding the bezels. It would appear that the swap is not as easy as, say, an SKX or Turtle bezel that does not have the bearings. On balance, I think the degree of difficulty in swapping the bezels might have been made clearer at the time of ordering but I...

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

Ah, I didn't get an insert with mine. Okay, yes, that wording was used elsewhere and that's where the confusion arose. When I asked Ewan about it he said that the bezel must be mounted on the watch so that the bezel insert could be correctly aligned the first time it is installed into the bezel. Ap...

Outstanding Greg. Really lovely looking vintage piece with a great patina.

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

I emailed him last night for bezel removal instructions. I've done bezel swaps before so I'm confident I can do it but I'd just like his 'official' take on it. The bezel comes as an entire piece - not just the insert and the 12 hour bezel has a different retaining spring so it becomes bi-directional...

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

I ordered a spare bezel as these are a very small run (300 in total) and spare’s are limited, but the bezels can only be fitted once so unlike on a Rolex GMT master for instance you won’t be able to swap between bezels as you destroy the insert to get underneath it to be able to get the bezel off 😞...

I also bought the 12 hour bezel for mine so I can swap as desired. I am really tempted to go back for the silver version.

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

Mine arrived yesterday. This is my first experience backing a Kickstarter watch. I think the bracelet is absolutely fantastic, it's comfortable, flexible and looks appropriate to the watch so I guess it's horses for courses. I do agree on the lume - it kept up with my GS overnight which is high prai...

Re: Jan sale

A nice surprise to see a bracelet for the C3 Mk1. Just what my son needs for his C3, so that's one of his birthday presents sorted! I must have asked CW at least three times over the years if they had a back-of-the-sofa bracelet for the mk1 and was always told no, sold out. I was delighted therefor...

Re: Orient Small Seconds

I had one and really liked it other than the date window and I wished it was 39mm. But, for the money, it's a really lovely piece!

Re: I Know, I Know...(Logo Opinion)

I did a lot of searching. I could not find any dive watch below £1,000 that came even close to matching the features of the C60 Trident. Features including a Ceramic Bezel with lume, top quality bracelet with an easily adjustable dive extension, and quick release pins. My search included close look...

Re: I Know, I Know...(Logo Opinion)

I've been banging the drum on this topic ever since the logo at 9 was introduced and have basically now given up on them ever changing it, no matter how much it would appear to be bad for business given the objections in the comments on every.single.review. (Almost) stopped even mentioning it since ...

Re: Belated birthday / black Friday Bremont?

Argh, too late! I was going to tell you NOT to buy it under any circumstances.

Actually no. No, I wasn't!

Fabulous pieces. Your first Bremont Guy?
