Well it’s one beautiful watch, why can’t CW make something like this?
A. They are phasing out quartz (or have)

B. They are not in the £10k market sector.
1. They can produce one much cheaper.
2. Not having a Rapide successor will drive some to Seiko’s 5 series watches.

Re: New Seiko 5 Sports bezel-less models

They’re on the website now, but probably still on pre order.

Re: Incoming - Teaser

You know what? I’m getting one too! I’m currently without a watch and have to resort to the cellphone. I just want a low-maintenance, reliable and accurate timepiece and this, with 100m water resistance, just fits the bill. I just find it so stylish.

Re: What did you do with your CD collection?

I know I should stop, but I keep buying new ones anyway... There's just too much good stuff being released, and I still enjoy holding something in my hand. I’m ripping my CDs, even new ones, which I then listen through USB on my system, but I still want the physical discs. And I know some of my CDs...

Quartz

I think a new quartz Rapide is needed. It won't need such an expensive casing but can return to its roots. The Mk1 was really elegant - they could refine this for the modern era.

Re: C7 Rapide Quartz

It's sad, I had the Mk1 which went bust (not worth the shipping costs to repair but might take to local jeweller), and I was also looking at buying the latest but it's off the website. And I suspect they won't be replacing it. Hope I'm wrong.

Re: What's Your Favorite Quartz CW Watch?

I have two CW quartz, and my favourite is my MkI Rapide C7 with a white dial - got it 10 years ago and still looks stunning. It can be worn with a t-shirt or a 3 piece suit with ease. I see the C7 quartz models are no longer on sale - is this just a clearance or is it permanent? My white one was exa...

Re: A Lasting Legacy - Important News from Christopher Ward

I don't think anyone is entitled to know the exact reasons for Chris leaving. As long as quality control and service is maintained, we're not entitled to anything really. Yes it's his name, but then again today what does the name Bowers & Wilkins mean on the company's speakers when said gentlemen ha...

Re: CW hints at what's new in 2020

A completely new Motorsport range with a simpler, lower cost, case than the previous C7’s. The current case is brilliant, it’s the dial of the mk3 that’s always been questionable. I had the mk1 Rapide quartz chronograph, white dial,and it was equally elegant and sporty. It looked more expensive tha...

C65 Trident request

I love the watches, but I just realised something has been gnawing at me since launch - the faux colonial khaki markers. Please offer updated watches (whenever that happens) with white markers/numerals. Also, and I admit this is personal preference, but offer the automatic with the Arabic numerals -...
