Re: Spare Watch Slot

EB Whiteout received yesterday morning as promised. Including a free EB Beanie (£27.95 on their website) I thought it may have been because of delay, but they said when ordered it would be Spring. So just a nice touch. Disaster, clasp wouldn’t open whichever way I tried. Emailed EB, replacement brac...

Re: CWEC IS IN

Not a fan of these hands on a white dial, legibility issues for me. I’ve sold all my CWs with this combo.

However, I could make an exception for this one.

Re: The Christopher Ward of Pens

I have:-

Fountain Pen
Gel Pen
Ballpoint Pen
Propelling Pencil

All the same model (Calais Polished Chrome) by Cross, very happy with quality.

Dependable and reliable, not sure of their collectibility as a brand tho.

Re: Spare Watch Slot

One spare slot due to be filled.

Had notification that the Whiteouts are all at EB HQ undergoing QC.

Despatch/Receipt next week.

Ordered November ‘23 for a Spring ‘24 delivery. So pretty much bang on target :clap:

No nibbles yet on my 2 sales.

Re: Spare Watch Slot

I'm curious, what watch box do you have? I am on the hunt for an 8 or 10 watch capacity box. Mine is a 17 slot box. 4x2 winders 9 slots underneath If you wish, I can dig out the make later as I think they do smaller versions. Actually I now have 3 spare as I am selling another 2!! Update:- Watch wi...

That was my one regret, giving credence to anything concerning the BC. One of the most illegible watches in history!!

Emperor’s New Clothes springs to mind.

Re: What Are They Thinking?

I’m a big Tag fan, but these are horrendous, I’d rather wear a Bel Canto.

And that’s saying something, oops, hang on. No I wouldn’t wear either, even if free!!

Sadly I don't have the shelf space to display it at the moment, so it's tucked away in the loft :(
I know the feeling. I had to rearrange my extensive JD collection to accommodate the NASA models.

Re: One in one out

I don’t tend to operate like that.

Currently I’ve identified 2 for sale, waiting for the eBay offer. And only 1 incoming.

Does 1 in 2 out qualify for this thread :lol:

But I'd rather just ask the question.
Have you filled the empty slot yet ?

Regards Steve
Not yet, Steve

But ironically, I’ve just decided to sell one of my CWs. But as I mentioned in another thread, no eBay offer on this weekend.

So potentially 2 spare slots :shock: :shock:

Re: The Non-Curmudgeons Corner

Not sure whether here or Curmudgeon’s Corner.

Typical, decided to sell a watch and for the first weekend in ages I didn’t get the 80% off selling fees offer.

Fingers crossed for next weekend.

As Steve says, Cape Cod cloth.

I’ve used them with great success.

But, always work in the direction of the grain!!
