Re: Clearance Returns

I returned a NN C60 middle of last week which was signed-for the next day. I've heard nothing from CW in terms of my refund though. I know there will be fewer people in the office but they're clearly in and selling! I just returned a NN C60 GMT and it should be arriving in their HQ tomorrow. I'm ho...

Re: What’s time doing for you now?

When I worked at home several years ago my working day was a full one and generally 1-2 hours more than a standard 8 hour day so no siesta for me then. Presently time seems to mean little. A consequence of COVID-19 is that I’ve worked (I’m a part-timer) just 1 day since Sunday 15th so Thursday 19th ...

Re: Where have you travelled to today?

Popped over to USA for a round of golf (President Trump said it'd be OK as I'll be outside)

Re: 15% off Tridents

9 seems to be the magic number as they've stopped now, thankfully.

As stated CW sent their COVID-19 notification previously and I'm getting plenty of other sales emails from other on-line companies so up to a point life goes on.

Re: Coronavirus

A friend of mine sent me a text of advice that has apparently been given to NHS staff. I leave it to you to believe it, follow it or ignore it as I can’t guarantee the origin prior to him or it’s accuracy. COVID-19 does not cause a cough or runny nose like the common cold symptoms but rather a dry a...

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 21

I had given up going to the Gym some weeks ago – staying away from enclosed air-con’d places where people were breathing heavily and sweating onto equipment (sorry about that) and possibly not being considerate enough to spray and clean after use. So I’m way off my usual fitness level but starting t...

My apologies folks. I should have searched with more keywords.

Thanks for all the responses. I’m going to take my Trident to do some intense sport and let’s hope the bezel doesn’t pop off.
No need to apologise. Everybody is happy to help.

Re: Modifying Your Watches

This is an often asked question probably as new members found it difficult to find the answer (Which for rieslingguru is a NO) on previous threads. Mods - Maybe it'd be worth adding this type of info on the "Open post to new Forum members" thread or maybe create an information thread about CW's hist...

Re: Help w/strap selection

I'm with the OP on this one.

The black/black C60 Trident Mk2 is a dressy diver and I had mine on a CW black strap with Bader deployant from new (2015) to Feb 2019. I think it was a leather with embossed alligator pattern.

Re: Best value watch brands under £500, £1.5k, £3k and £5k?

In response to a few comments, I appreciate my description was quite vague but to clarify I was thinking about new rather than used. I mentioned Omega sale prices specifically as they do come on sale fairly regularly...not long ago I saw a white dial speedy for £2.2k at goldsmiths and aqua terra fo...
