Re: Just a place to put nice pictures you’ve taken

20240605_163756-COLLAGE.jpg Thorpeness. :thumbup: Regards Steve I didn't know there was a golf course in Thorpeness. It provides a nice view of the house in the clouds. So many lovely places to visit along that Suffolk coast, isn't there? :D A lovely area, although I mostly explored the Gorse bushe...

Re: What is your favourite CW series?

My favourite shape is the C65 Trident Diver range. I bought a few of them to try but returned every one to CW as these were in the era of the LH justified 9 o'clock brand name and my brain couldn't cope with it. From the existing portfolio it has to be the Sealander 39mm. I have a blue 3 hander and ...

Re: CWEC IS IN

Great looking Trident. It does remind me of the quite rare white dial blue ceramic bezel Trident mk2 colour combo that I owned at one time, that was a slightly too large 43mm though, the CWE a much better size imo. That Mk2 white/blue was also sold in a 38mm which I've been trying to find for ages ...

Re: I got the call!

What a lucky fellow. I would love to have 1 of those but have pretty much given up as I was told there was an 8 YEAR (!) wait list. So I'll have to be content with the Snoopy dials on my Apple Ultra :lol: I would find the money not matter what if I ever got the call about 1. I wonder if it had anyth...

Re: The Golf Topic

It's good to see more Forum members playing golf now that, in general, the weather has improved. I've been playing through the winter when conditions allowed, i.e. courses weren't closed due to waterlogged fairways and greens, and the season started in earnest for me in February/March with trial rou...

Re: CW Revival potential

Maybe I'm missing something here. If you change the bezel to ceramic or sapphire, change the bracelet centre links, have a new style case and then maybe change the hands also what of the original design would remain to call it a "revival" of the Kingfisher? It wouldn't make me consider par...

A colour combination that I would love to have and continue to hope that CW will release it again sometime.

Re: The Christopher Ward of Pens

Montblanc are a bit like the Rolex of the pen world. They are well known and are the typical aspiration for someone wanted a luxurious, top-of-the-range fountain pen. Like Rolex, their product is, indeed, very good, but also like Rolex, there are other companies out there with products which are as...

Re: One in one out

Is it simply a numbers question of 1 in/1 out or is it also, or more, a money question when considering purchasing another watch?
If another watch can be afforded without selling anything would 1 in/1 out still be followed?

Re: C65 Trident Colours

I'm sure there have been similar questions previously regarding shades of dial colours so maybe CW would be willing to provide the RAL or Pantone colour codes so this information could be added onto the CW Archives? I can understand that they might not want to do that for watches while they are in e...

Re: Suggestion for 2024 forum limited edition

Hello and welcome. :) I will be very surprised if there is a FLE for 2024. If you look at the FLE pages, you’ll see that there was a six year gap between the 2017 FLE and the 2023 FLE. Which for some people was the 2024 FLE. :shock: Given design and lead times, getting a watch out of he door by the...

Re: The Twelve X (Ti) - Released

Again, I agree that it's wrong to say "that the 12 X price isn't justified because I can get a Planet Ocean for less money." I didn't write that. Those were my words not yours and weren't meant to be attributed to you personally. Sorry about that. I would rather have a PO than the 12 X. S...

Re: The Twelve X (Ti) - Released

I don't think anybody is disagreeing with you re. how good the price is from CW for this type of watch when compared to similar watches from other brands like Oris (as you have shown) and other brands etc. But if this CW watch isn't what somebody likes then it's probably inevitable that the price w...
