Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

I think you should discuss you writing a guest piece for the next episode of Loupe, when Mike France comes back to you, naturally. It should be centred around the point you broker in your OP: Call me crazy, but among watch enthusiasts isn’t it simply taken as a given that when one finally receives ...

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

It was all tongue in cheek, gentlemen. Every time I look at the watch, a big smile comes across my face, full stop. Anything else said was just for laughs. Andrew, clearly I read too much into your pos t. However, I still find it a fascinating post. That’s easy to do. Sarcasm and satire don’t alway...

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

On the subject of letting your wife know Andrew…. I’m just playing this up for dramatic effect. I’m not too legitimately worried. Cost is never a concern because we maintain separate finances, and she knows how responsible I am with money anyway. Now what will put me in the doghouse is simply the a...

Of course I am! At this point it’s just for dramatic effect. And I’m sure I’ll ride it just a bit too far because that’s what I always do.

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

I think that, in legalistic terms, the reach of your metaphysical claim under 60/60 should match the linguistic methods by which you were sold the watch. For example: Ever since Rolex took the Explorer back to its original size last year, 36mm has become the case size of the moment. And when you se...

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

Maybe Andrew is joking of course, and he really does love his new watch, and will never want or need another, (for a year or two) :D I am joking, of course, but if I can get serious for a moment, the new C63 is my third CW. In regards to my “collection,” mentally this watch has pushed me to now leg...

Very good, Andrew... this tickled me this morning . A worthy thread of the month I think. Excellent! Mission accomplished then. The joy of any treasured possession is not that it changes your life but that it fits in and becomes part of your life… …First put the watch away for a couple of months… …...

Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

So I’ve had the C63 for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love it. While it’s functioning perfectly well within spec and is everything I hoped it would be, there’s one thing I am concerned about. Um…my life seems to be relatively unchanged from before I had this watch?! I expected this watch to be t...

That’s actually a pretty creative idea!

The blue lume against the white dial is fantastic. This pic is untouched other than a modest crop.

Strap roll up

I had to figure something else out for storing my straps after purchasing all those NATOs…plus the couple of other straps I picked up for the C63. I just remembered I had this canvas storage roll that I wasn’t using for anything. It seemed the perfect solution for some straps. So now all the NATOs a...

Great little Antiques Roadshow clip

I just caught a great clip from the UK Antiques Roadshow. I woman presented a collection of letters from a great grandfather dating from the Great War. After a little conversation, the presenter asked if she had anything else, any physical items. She said yes and pulled up her sleeve to talk off her...
