Re: C65 Quick Release Bracelet.

Hmmm ... the wide centre-link makes it look much more modern than a standard oyster bracelet imo and not really in keeping with the C65s vintage aesthetic.

Maybe it looks better IRL :?

I recognise that little beauty :thumbup: looking good :thumbup: :thumbup:
Cheers :wink:

I reckon it would've looked better with a blue second hand, but unfortunately my first attempt to purchase one failed.
I'll keep looking though.

Re: Non CW of the Day

So much charm for so little money. One of my best decisions to date was to re-purchase the SARB.

Love it! :D

Re: C65 Vintage Discontinued?

For me, the 38mm C65 vintage case provided a great platform for a classic, waterproof sports watch and CW should have utilised it more, even if just for a couple of LE runs to test the water. I really hope they go along with this using the 38/40mm cases from the MK3 C60. IIRC, Mike has already menti...

Re: Fake/Homage CW watches

Point being: I don't think that "homages" affect the manufacturers for the originals at all. The buyers who acquire fakes cannot or will not ever pay for the real thing. Does that not contradict what you said in the first part of your post? :? Back in the 80s I had a colleague who acquired a fake R...

Re: Scratched Sapphire Crystal

thanks all - i don't think i could really get a decent photo of it as it's so small, it just catches the light occasionally to let me know its there. magrette told me a replacement crystal would be $60, so may have a gentle DIY go, knowing that the consequences shouldn't be too bad. Bear in mind th...

Re: Scratched Sapphire Crystal

Sapphire can be polished using different grades of diamond paste. Go for good quality stuff and not the hobby shop variety. Probably an idea to stay away from a Dremel and use a bit of elbow grease. Can't help on the specifics, but there are "tutorials" and a couple of threads on other forums on the...

Re: Trident Comparison - M3 vs C65 vs C60?

Above and beyond! Thank you very much kind Sir for your informative post :thumbup:
From the comparison picture of the 3, it gives me a good feeling that the 40mm would will be spot on :wink:

Now I just have to sit and wait for CW to serve up a GMT.

Re: CWL of the day

Trident C60 Pro M3 (40mm) Finally on a perfectly resized bracelet and feeling fantastic! 1E9583A2-22B8-4835-9655-B6BBD5C463B8.jpeg I think this angle really emphasises the depth of the hour markers on the dial. Blue tint on the crystal is the blue of the sky, not any anti-reflective coating etc. C ...
