Re: An Appreciation for "Old School"

Isn't a matter of what's appropriate for the moment ? My main watch is mechanical, hand wound, a design of over 50 years old and it's my favourite but last year (before I bought this main watch) I wore a "fitness" watch for the major part of the Summer and use it for the gym but I wouldn't use any o...

Re: Monta Oceanking arrived today

I don't think that making a consideration of value without actually handling something is irrational. It's neither more correct nor more wrong than any other way of somebody judging whether something is worth buying. If the Monta didn't attract 20% VAT, wasn't based in USA and had more years of warr...

^^^^ I would pick the Monta over the outgoing Seamaster any day of the week!

That's just a matter of personal choice by both of us.

Re: Monta Oceanking arrived today

... Yeah, I'm not sure how much UK sales tax and import charges would be, but it would suck if it adds a significant amount to the cost of the watch. 20% VAT (sales tax) plus a small amount for customs handling. So you’re looking at something in the order of an extra $400 :( Rough, ready reckoner w...

Re: C65 Trident GMT - Pepsi

I’ve just spent a bit more time viewing and pausing the video and examining the gallery images in CW site. I’m getting more and more attracted to the blue dial version. I love the pop of orange on the GMT hand against the blue dial, getting more used to the black date background as it did not sit r...

Re: Calling speedmaster moonwatch (hesalite) owners

Whatever version it's a great watch but I'm glad to got 1 you're happy with and it sounds like you got it at a decent price.

Incidentally last week I accidentally started the second hand running on my Hesalite version and the stop and reset placed the hand perfectly back to central.

Re: C65 Trident GMT - Pepsi

I keep looking at this and like it quite a bit, but am a little concerned that it will wear large with the big open face and thin bezel. I might get one to check out and send it back if I don't like it. I'm really looking forward to the 40mm Trident after all. When I saw this and the other C65s at ...

If I had tried to take a picture yesterday of Spring in Berkshire I would have drowned in the downpour of rain.

Re: C65 Trident GMT - Pepsi

I saw this on my visit to the Showroom on 12 Feb and was surprised that I quite liked it. Usually I don't like these split colour Pepsi bezels on any brand's version as I think that the bright-ish blue and red bezel doesn't co-ordinate well with the black dial, but as I said this one surprised me. I...

Re: GTGs - Mini Chats with Chris - 2019

Might be wrong but I can't see this being like the format of the GTGs. I can't imagine CW having a private room at Heathrow - would they have a guard on the door asking if you belonged to the Forum or Facebook group and only allow them in? Can't see that happening. I can understand the business reas...
