Re: Coupons/discount codes?

The Code is only valid for One Transaction ... I'm trying to use 125CW19 to buy the new 40mm Trident in blue, but the code doesn't work as either a coupon or voucher, I keeping getting the message that it is invalid. Very odd considering I had used the same code to preorder the Dartmouth. LOL Post ...

Re: Expansion of the Trident 40mm range?

^Of which I am one. I knew the currrent 42 and old 43mm would be too big, and while quite comfortable, the 38mm was always an odd size for me given it's height and short lug to lug length. I ended up selling all of the 38mm Tridents I've owned and have bought the new 40mm in blue. I had preordered t...

Re: CW spin on the Patek tagline

Completely off topic from the pedantry of this thread, that "die on that hill" phrase has to rank as one of the most ridiculous expressions of the day, of which there are many. :thumbdown:

surely it just means that a date wheel has not been used on the movement.... right?
does this mean it will have a ghost position when its pulled out into position one?
Yes, I believe so. :problem:

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

Never been a big fan of military designs, but I kinda like the Dartmouth. But to get the right effect out of that dial design I think it needs the 3-6-9 numerals... ^^^What he said^^^ I have one of these on pre-order and the more I look at the real world pictures posted from this weekend, I am tend...

Re: QC Issues C9 Chronometer

OH! I do see that now, at first glance that wasn't apparent and I didn't make the connection that it was exhibition. And my apologies that you took offense.

Re: QC Issues C9 Chronometer

Hope it get sorted out for you. Not sure I understand cracking the case back and poking around in a watch that's still under warranty though. Seems like they'd have a reason to deny it if they were so inclined.

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

I value accuracy in my watches, not obsessively, but it's important to me; whether it's COSC out of the box or regulating to get pretty darn close, that's what I want. The bonus with CW offering these movements that are COSC along with their 60 month warranty, is that I assume if they lose that -4/+...

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

It's worth repeating, or stating if it hasn't already, but a COSC movement in this package at about $900 (when on the fantastic bracelet) is a heck of a bargain in my opinion.

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

Perhaps tomorrow at the GTG someone can ask a question about the name at 12 on these watches?

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

My thinking is location must be all about balance. Date on the right (3) = words on the left(9), flags at 12. No date on the right (or fairly large applied indices at both 3 and 9) = name at 12. Power reserve or other complication at 9 = name at 12.



And I preordered a Dartmouth!

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

It's been discussed before on here several times that the word mark varies based on the dial layout. When they have the space to put the name at 9, they do/will, such as the c60 and other versions of the C65. Along with the twin flags at 12. For those pictured here and others where the dial is not c...
