Re: Collector’s dilemma...Do you wear ‘em all?

Part of the problem for many of us to answer this is that many of your watches are vintage pieces. Thus many of us won't have a "feel" for how you view these for daily wearing considerations, don't know the financial impact of selling them or won't be aware of any personal association you have with ...

I emailed to specifically ask about other colours in 40mm
Thanks, and good news for many people I think that 40mm colours will increase.

I’ve also managed to source a speedmaster from my date of birth
20 July 1969? :D
Now that would be a birth date !

I'd never be able to find 1 from my DOB - the only Rocket around then was the Stephensons :D

Re: Nearly New watches onsite

The C65 Blue GMT is tempting with 30% off. Go wan, go wan, go wan* - you know that you want to. :lol: * Mrs Doyle, Father Ted Love that saying, so funny. I'm in no rush to buy anything presently and somehow the Trident MkII GMT fills the dial more thus reducing the impact of the name at 9o'clock, p...

Re: Trouble with the GMT hand on my Trident GMT

Serial numbers don't mean anything regarding age. From what you've written it would seem that you bought it pre-owned without any accompanying paperwork? I can only judged the age of your GMT by my own standard ceramic bezel Trident MkII which I bought very soon after the MkII was released and it's ...

C65 blue automatic for me :)
Hmm, we may have placed an order for the same watch :problem:
Well it's no longer on there so congratulations to whoever got it - hope there was at least 2 available so you both got 1.

Re: What would you like to see next?

How about something no manufacturer has ever done. A whole dept comitted to building a fully customizable watch. Would have to be done at a premium price, but the possibilities are endless. We probably dont want to think of wait times. You might come 'Undone' with that concept. :wink: Guy Sent from...

I'm not actually after an MK2, I have one and I'm happy with it.

I was mostly curious as to what the common practices were.
That might have been better placed on the original post as an explanation.

If only ..... lovely looking watches and I'd love to have a blue version but the extra costs for a UK purchase and then the return to USA if any problems arise put me off buying one.

Re: What happens now with any remaining MK2 stock ?

I'm not sure if massive numbers of MkIIs should be expected to be available in any forthcoming sale. CW had plenty of time to run down the stocks. The GMT models disappeared from the CW website weeks or maybe months before the MkIII release, the 38mm size of the standard version likewise and several...
