Re: An interactive guide to how a mechanical watch works

Just had a quick look.

Re: In hindsight...was the Christopher Ward rebrand of 2016 a historic mistake?

I’ve just received an email from CW about bespoke watches.

The example shown is for The Royal Gurkha Rifles with the crossed kukris at 12.

I think that’s the best logo so far.

There is a brand, usually on Ideal World, Constantin Weisz that already use that logo.

Not sure they would want to align themselves with that brand, they’re pretty cheap.

Re: Recommend me a NATO type strap

Personally, I like the the 2-piece NATOs from Josh at WIAA. Quick Release pins too.

I have the Bond grey/black on my Bulova MoonWatch.

By the way! I’m not a big bronze fan, but C60 looks great on that strap. Congrats.

Your Watch Collection - A Song

On a similar theme to the movie thread, how about a song that sums up your watch collecting adventures?

Whenever I mention a new watch purchase to my wife, it’s usually:-

“Let It Be”

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

Moreover, the Aquitaine bracelet has an improved clasp, greater taper, screw pins for link adjustment and will retrofit onto the C65 Trident Diver.

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

Can somebody show a picture of the clasp?

I still think at 16.5mm, it will look too small for a man’s wrist.

Happy to be proved wrong tho!

It’s interesting that all pics are from the front.

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

Looking at the spec, and I think it’s been mentioned, but one of my concerns is the taper from 22mm to 16.5mm If someone removes 3 links on one side, because of small wrists or the way they like to have clasp in a particular position, would the remaining links still connect? If this seems a stupid q...

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

I like the green one, but it looks a little like a Kickstarter creation to me.

£100 off not enough, will wait for a sale if I’m to end up with one.

Click and nothing happens.

Sadly, the white dial looks as if it may have the same legibility problems as other white dial C60s.
