Re: Oris Big Crown Pointer date or the Propilot?

But never say never as I’m very taken with the new Reno Air Race GMT version... I can certainly understand being captivated by that one, it's very appealing: https://hodinkee.imgix.net/uploads/images/1601755137544-1q6nmio1rjb-aae6bc18216c759aa2054a79a5da9e1e/01_798_7768_4284-Set_-_Oris_57th_Reno_Ai...

Re: Pilot watches

Seeing as this thread has evolved over the last three months into a general Pilot Watch thread, as opposed to recommendations for the OP, I thoought I'd post up my 47mm handwound Parnis 'sterile' B-Uhr Flieger on classic Flieger strap being worn as intended for the design of the strap. https://uplo...

Re: That super compressor

I strongly considered getting one of the closeout SCs, but there were a few issues I couldn't get past. First was the appearance of the white inner bezel which to me makes the watch look cheap, so the dark blue was the only option I thought really had a top class look. Second was that it seems kind ...

Re: 2021 release wish list

C60 42mm white dial, black bezel, with bright orange GMT hand, and a COSC option would be nice.

'Check an Order' accesses the same page as when I view the order status details under My Account, with no tracking info specified.

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

As a side note that C65 Trident Auto with the white face and black indexes and hands is awesome. Whoever snagged that is a happy camper I bet! I recall seeing a very disappointed post from the buyer of that one, finding the dial to be silver rather than white and that it was going to be returned. S...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

I received my elite prototype today, which was a pleasant surprise. Interesting on the warranty card it says 'nearly new' which is good as it shows that it would have been discounted. I will upload images shortly, but I am really struggling to see what is different about it other than having a seri...

This is listed as a prototype as well:

I guess there's not much interest as it's similar to existing models.
That example has the 'ghost logo' in white, making it somewhat unique.

Re: Just One More Watch: Upcoming Microbrand Releases Jan 21

Really interesting to see a micro doing a HAQ. It seems to me that the HAQ market is rather niche for a micro. Hopefully it is successful, as I'd like to see more of them released. Sorry for asking, but what is a HAQ? High Accuracy Quartz movements, like Longines VHP, PreciDrive, etc. typically 10 ...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Im soo suprised that they are putting Supercomplesow with such heavy discount on sale. I mean from 1000 to almost 600 for a brand new model? The sale models look to be the ones with the misaligned text. Neil Also only the black sand (brown) dial is being sold at the discounted price and is being di...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Man, looks like they can’t even give away the SCs in black sand! I’ve been tempted but can’t see past the offset wording. I’m not OCD but can’t unsee it. I also think that they will be harder to sell on in the future. If I did go for it it would definitely be because it’s a bargain rather than a wa...

Re: CW January 21 sale reboot

Brown C65 SCs: are they hanging around? The brown (black sand) dial SCs are being discontinued, and the ones being sold off at discounted prices are the original dials with the orange "Super Compressor" text slightly shifted left of center. This has been confirmed by CW's customer service, explaini...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Apparently there's a large number available since they're discontinuing that color dial. Also the pics show those dials with the off center (left shifted) Super Compressor text which has been corrected on current versions of the other dial colors. Haven't seen confirmation whether the pics are accu...
