Re: Upcoming releases

In the interests of sharing could someone who has received their Loupe early post some pictures of all the upcoming new releases. It's still not on the website and I'm still waiting for my last one to arrive. Thanks. I'm sure we can get plenty of photos posted up for you Malcolm, once Loupe 19 has ...

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for . . . .. .

It looks good. Whilst I don’t mind a 30 minute counter on a more dress style Chronograph, I have always viewed a full 12 hour counter as far more useful on a tool watch Chronograph such as this. Neil Agreed - but pleased that the previous Micky-Mouse 'small seconds' aka 'Breather' has been abandone...

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for . . . .. .

Why no pics?! Not bad, not outstanding. Feels like a fairly "safe" play by CW, design-wise, but there's enough to like and, for me at least, the logo is relatively inoffensive on this model. However, the proportions seem slightly off to me - very stocky (and I say this as an owner of the 600 Pro Chr...

Re: Yet another new Speedmaster...

I think it is, on the whole, pretty cool. The colour scheme works. The movement is good. The rear complication is novel. The design (generally) hangs together and it is an attractive piece. Not an LE, which has been a recent complaint and means us mere mortals should have a chance to get one. On the...

Re: C65 Super Compressor

Yes, I just wasn't clear if he meant a personal email to Kip or a personal email to purchasers. (I assume the former but would hope for the latter.)

Re: C65 Super Compressor

Good on CW - did the email go to all purchasers or just those that have raised the issue? Regarding lack of feedback to CW, I guess it's probably not surprising. Clearly, quite a few people haven't noticed it and may never notice it. It's early days. Others may notice and not care, so won't give fee...

Re: Compressor in the wild!

Or there is an error in the design which has followed over into printing....

That could be an expensive mistake for CW!

Re: Thoughts on this Omega AT GMT?

Thanks for all the opinions! I've found a pretty decent deal on one in Japan so will go for it, I think. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk And if you're importing that back to GB you WILL have HMRC to contend with. Add 25% + handling fees. EDIT Oops - too late haha. I'm in Dubai, so not quite so...

Got it through Chrono24 from a Japanese seller called Ippuukishi. They're a fairly well-known brick and mo...

Re: Thoughts on this Omega AT GMT?

Thanks - yeah I quite like the quirkiness of the GMT numbers but appreciate they turn a lot of people off (probably one of the reasons this model was discontinued). My "rationale" (in the context of unnecessary luxury purchases) is a GADA watch good for the office, casual and travel. What to do. Sen...

Thoughts on this Omega AT GMT?

Hi, gang, Looking for opinions on the fit of this AT 43mm GMT (and my sexy, sexy Covid-chic gloves, if you want). I've had my eye on this for a while, but haven't been able to get hands-on with one until now (it's discontinued). Quick and dirty phone pics of it on my 7.25" wrist, though it was not t...
