Re: Parts for back catalogue watches

Well it seems my OP has created some lively debate/interest which is a good thing. Im hoping if the item was a movement part or core case element that CW would be able to address it. Thankfully that's not the case (excuse the pun), I haven't needed any operational repair and Im happily wearing a ful...

Re: C7 chronograph cosc LE - blue face/yellow accents

And as this is a thread about straps for blue faced watches, lastly a gratuitous shot of a few blue faces and straps:

Re: C7 chronograph cosc LE - blue face/yellow accents

Ok, enough faffing about... For the moment its going on one of these oiled or suede: Like both and happy with quality again from WG, especially the oiled which was a bit of a punt in clearance at less than £20! Thanks again for the discount codes guys, much appreciated :thumbup: IMG_20190321_094242....

Re: Dress watch - Help me decide

In a meeting with lawyer recently, he was wearing smart dress watch I was quite taken with. It was a Junghans Max Bill (do auto and quartz/black or white face/10mm ish) which can be had for CW type money especially nearly new.
Elegant but interesting... Sorry to suggest a non CW in this thread.

Re: Dress watch - Help me decide

Im afraid im not really adding, that C1 is such a perfect dress watch. I have managed both of my C9s under a double cuff.... the C1 would be 1st choice of your CW options, elegant, interesting, different. Choice of cufflinks makes a bit of a difference as does make of shirt. When i used to spend a l...

Re: Parts for back catalogue watches

Yes, the design is susceptible to nicks and i knew this when I purchased the watch as pre owned. No complaints. Hoped as much as expected that I may be able to restore. Kip, many thanks for your input and experience. Fully understand the commercials, having not been a CW customer for as long as many...

Re: Parts for back catalogue watches

Model is C7 Monte Carlo so an older model. That said I was only using these as loose examples to understand the wider position and members experience on older models. Im not complaining as its a relatively minor cosmetic only issue and just me being bit OCD 😊 Fully understand the strap and its not a...

Re: Watchgecko Sharkmesh on C60

Im liking that double weave, it would look really good on many vintage divers (nice watch bye the way)). Ido like a good mesh/Milanese though as my first serious watch (OK maybe not serious but 1st watch I'd ever had over £50) was one of the 1st Skagens and had a super comfy and smooth mesh strap.. ...

Parts for back catalogue watches

Before i start, im keen to say this is not going to be a CW customer service bashing post.. I just wandered what the general consensus was on this as over the past week Ive had 2 responses of its not a current model so we no longer stock spares. I appreciate that neither was movement or core chassis...

Re: C7 chronograph cosc LE - blue face/yellow accents

Thanks all for your input, having seen the pics of Borderman and MiniMpi I tried a few more looks (Photoshop) and i think it needs to be A) Matt and B) bit lighter in colour than the dark browns, blacks and blues, so, ive gone a bit leftfield and ordered a pale caramel nubuck/suede and a light brown...

Re: Watchgecko Sharkmesh on C60

Hi H0rati0, I generally prefer a branded buckle and did contemplate swapping on a CW bracelet clasp. After 6months I sort of forgot. 😊
On leather I nearly always swap buckles or bader if CW. Ive also been known to buy OEM buckles to fit new straps for my Heuers e.g. Corfam on Autavia.

:thumbup: Guy, I tried for years to get my mum out of a Golf and into a Yeti... very good at nearly everything and driving position/headroom that would really work for her dodgy back!

Re: C7 chronograph cosc LE - blue face/yellow accents

Nice suggestions, Im absolutely loving that Aqua Terra strap, almost perfect for the 'look'... Im not sure i can justify the £195 on this particular watch though 😊.. now to find a cheaper version of that strap maybe in a matt leather.

Re: F1 2019 Motorsport Thread

What-time-is-it, amazing difference! I was only looking at. Crystal Palace the other day but the other way round. Was once a GP/race circuit, many years ago and then reverted to park... I walked around it and was amazed that the 'paths' were ever a serious circuit.
