Re: New CW Sealander Chronograph

Please tell me there isn’t people out there that think the previous quartz CW would be something to hold onto in the future! :irre3: ](*,) Is anyone going to spend 500 quid on a quartz watch for speculation??? Sorry but missing your point here. Anyway, the C63 Valour could have easily been a new Ra...

Re: C65 Dune

That looks nice! Very "field-watchy." I thought I would fancy that with the sand dial but I played around with it on the CW website and probably would have it with a black dial also. It looks great on the "Bader" bracelet too. Without having seen it in person I probably would no...

Re: C63 Valour

I'm quite aware of that, but it does look look a lot like a motorsport watch, regardless of designation.

C63 Valour

I will be very surprised if CW doesn't release it as the new Rapide.

Re: “The Twelve” is live

Christopher Ward have stated their influences for this watch,

but whisper it....

I see strong hints of Seiko in the general shape and gradated dials in the blue and purple ones.

There I said it

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

The normal C63 Auto just looks.....dull.

Come on CW, where is the flair. At 599 I'd save 100 quid and get the quartz C65 AM 1 VEV Special Edition. There, one case where a quartz is hands down better than an auto.

Rapide revival

This is what a new Rapide should look like. Give it a quartz movement. I never thought I’d say this about a Breitling, but this is stunning.

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.

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.
