Re: Jan sale

Appreciate your comments Michael. Looking at the details of the strap in the link you posted, it is described as "Premium quality canvas webbing strap with Christopher" . Whilst not the 'Vintage' strap I was thinking of nevertheless, being canvas, you should expect some wear / ageing over time. How...

Re: Jan sale

Hard to tell, from your photo, whether it is black or dark blue but there seems to be some texture to it so, from my recollection of the watches / straps offered, I'm thinking it is the blue canvass webbing strap. This, as described, is designed to wear for a vintage look. Guy I agree its probably ...

Re: Jan sale

C7 Rapide from 50% sale arrived. Strap has fade marks all over the place Not the best start... If you are unhappy with it, have you contacted CW at all to make them aware and discuss a remedy?

Re: Trident C60 600 vs ?

I have a Mk I Oris Aquis, a Mk 2.5 CW C60 (new logo), a previous generation (Ref 212 Blue), and a new generation (Ref 210) Seamaster 300. In terms of quality I would say that the Mk 2.5 C60 is on a par with the previous generation (Ref 212) Seamaster. I also don't see much difference in quality bet...

Re: Trident C60 600 vs ?

Having had/still own Oris and CW watches, I wouldn't consider Oris to be objectively better than CW, they are more expensive, but that's partly because of a dealer network that needs supporting. Try to not let price sway your thinking, the online business model allows CW to be extremely competitive...

Re: Trident C60 600 vs ?

have you been through the process of trying on the blue Omega in stores? are you trying to find it in display cases when you walk by etc? I am afraid that if you have gone through this process that is the watch you will want in the end and other substitutes, although great, may not fully satisfy yo...

I don't mean to be a bad influence here :D but I have to ask: have you been through the process of trying on the blue Omega in stores? are you trying to find it in display cases when you walk by etc? I am afraid that if you have gone through this process that is the watch you will want in the end a...

There's a black version on hybrid still there
Definitely looking at the blue one and that's only a 38mm too which is a bit small

Thanks though.

Can you get a voucher on line or is it only through with the magazine?
They are sent in the post but the code also gets posted on the forum for general use

Re: Trident C60 600 vs ?

I do really like the Oris, one of the reasons I didn't list it above was that it was quite a bit above the others in terms of price and also the colour.
The blue dial isn't really the blue that I'm looking for that the others have.

Re: Trident C60 600 vs ?

SPB053J1 Thanks - not a massive fan of the look of that. Plus at that price point I'd be looking for a ceramic especially given how clumsy I am Edit: I have double checked and a few of the watches I've linked don't have a ceramic bezel - I think depending on price I could live without it, but I do ...

Trident C60 600 vs ?

Hi All, Looking to buy something as a belated birthday treat after deciding that I couldn't justify pulling the trigger on a 2019 Seamaster just before Christmas. I have a few CW (C3 Malvern, C60 Trident 300 Red & C7 Rapide) a few seikos and a Steinhart Ocean 1 Vintage. I decided after the seamaster...
