Re: Today's Showroom Visit

I really love how the canvas webbing strap presents in these pictures! The C65 auto looks great on it.

Re: Pictures of where you live

My apologies, guys. I'm really sorry if I caused any offense. I was actually curious to see different places where forum members live, regardless if one considers them beautiful or glamorous, because our membership spans the globe which I think is great. Any place in the world, irrespective of its ...

Re: Pictures of where you live

Im always wary of post like these, its great to see where others live, but I always leave a little envious and disappointed. envy for others' homes, and disappointed my own lacks the glamour. I should know better than to look. My own hometown is essentially devoid of any real charm, its a new town ...

Re: Forum Survey Results

Here's my $.02... What do you dislike or would like less of on/about the forum? (346) 75% strongly dislike the moaning, bitching, back biting, bickering, passive aggressive behavior, self-indulgent opinions, the clique and, most notably, CW logo comments and discussions. While this sounds like an al...

Re: C65 Trident Automatic

The blue in nauf's photos looks darker than any other photos of this that I've seen before. Hopefully I'll see shortly after 1000 tomorrow from my Showroom visit. When you do, will you comment on how the blue in person compares with Nauf’s photos? If his photos are true to life, I’ll order blue ove...

Thanks.

These are few shots:
I think the blue dial just matches with the camel straps perfectly.
That blue looks gorgeous! Way darker than the photos on CW’s website. Is this just the nature of your photos, or is that how the blue looks under normal, non-studio conditions?

Re: Pictures of where you live

I live in a soulless suburb about 20 miles south of Washington, DC. It's dominated by strip malls, chain restaurants & stores, and traffic lights. It could be Anywhere, USA. Hidden in amongst all this, however, is a national park that provides an escape from the asphalt and traffic. I just got mysel...

Find it very useful for following ideas/brands/people/places visually without a lot of unnecessary words.
Exactly what I do with my @superfanstan1970 account. My private account (@jkbarnes) is for following and sharing with friends and family, without as you say, "a lot of unnecessary words."

Re: Whos on instagram?

Just an FYI - I started following a bunch of you with an account I use exclusively for following commercial, photography and specific content accounts. So if you see a random new follow, it’s me.
