Re: Tudor North Flag

Scooter nailed it I think. Plus, having a lot of individuality, it's not a me-too watch.

Re: Happy Birthday FloridaPhil

Thanks all. Not really a celebration this year, more an acknowledgement that I've successfully completed another orbit around the sun! Nearly forgot it was my birthday since I spent the day extracting myself from my business and packing in preparation for a trip to New York where my wife undergoes a...

Re: New arrival - I spy a Bremont

Terrific watch! But then I would say that since Bremont is my favorite brand!

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Again, that may be true for watches from manufacturers with their wide availability in store. Not so for online only retailers. Not laughable at all to assume that people will look online for review of an unknown product IMO.

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Sample of users here and people prepared to read online reviews is tiny compared to their total customer change in on-product doesn’t seem to have harmed their overall sales base and they appear to be growing and increasing their brand presence in the mainstream market (witness the fact that they c...

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

As small as the sample here is, it's what we have to work with so that's all we can comment on. Again, check just about any comment section on reviews and read the feedback on the branding. Even if we accept the figure of 'only' 1/3 being vociferously negative, that's not good in my book. You can ar...

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

No, not true Scott. The poll clearly shows that 34% of respondents won't buy the watch because of the logo.

As for being overly dramatic, it's a debate technique designed to contrast viewpoints and highlight differences. Relax, nobody is seriously comparing watches to brain surgery. 😊

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Only it isn't a 67% approval rating, is it? Interesting that you would choose to compare CW branding to what is historically the lowest rated 'profession' in the world. Let's aim a bit higher. Would I be keen to fly with an airline with a 67% safety record or be operated on by a surgeon that was 67%...

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Sorry for this ultra long post but this is a topic to which I've given probably too much consideration. Reader's Digest version: I dislike the 9 o'clock positioning intensely due to the way it totally unbalances the dial and I resist buying any CW watch with the placement. Although it's been done to...

Re: Modified C600 Tri-tech Elite

Thanks for posting. I think my Trident GMT might be making a trip to Detroit for the hi-light finish. It's always been just a little bit too dressy for my taste so this looks like the perfect answer.
