Re: I Know, I Know...(Logo Opinion)

I actually love their current branding, it looks modern and unique to them. For me that 9 o’clock position of the “Christopher Ward” is fine and I like the fact that they are not afraid to move away from what is traditionally considered to be the so called “norm”. Have I opened the proverbial can o...

Re: I Know, I Know...(Logo Opinion)

I will say the changes do make CWs rather unique looking. You put a 20 different watches from various companies in a lineup and the CW stands out at first glance. :erschreckt: ...and some might say for the wrong reasons, ie it looks odd. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however and there are m...

Re: Crown and crystal swap?

I'm sure you could find a domed or box crystal to fit, but it might invalidate the warranty due to the watch needing to be opened.

Re: CS & 60/60 Test case.

Integrated? Noooooooo.

Lose the cabinet and put in a freestanding, I say. Far less hassle in such circumstances. Probably not much help now though.

On the watch front, stiff winding could be a pinched/misaligned wheel or bridge during re-assembly.

Being of modular design the SH21 can have various complications added, so affecting the number of jewels.

Re: CS & 60/60 Test case.

I would also add that my watch too, arrived today, after an email and message yesterday telling me of its imminent arrival. It comes complete with a small spec of something on the inside of the crystal, I could not honestly say if it was there before or not, but a sharp eyed QC inspector should have...

Re: Bezel Insert

CW will replace bezels on a like for like basis, unless there is no stock of your particular bezel. What happens if there is no stock I don't know, as some watches won't look great with a different bezel colour. I would imagine the price to be in the region of £40 (as a rough guess). In the case of ...

Re: Advice on my second C.W. purchase

Personally,I think you could do a lot worse than look for a clean and tidy used C60/C61 38mm Automatic.

For example, a tidy blue Mk2 C60 just sold on eBay for £360. That's a good ballpark price right there.

Expect to pay £300-£400 for tidy C60s, if you're lucky/patient, under £300.

I'd keep the C65, not on the rubber strap though, that looks wrong.

Re: My C65 Trident GMT isn't waterproof!

Just had a thought about this issue. There is a very good chance that if the watch isn't worn properly, the back of the watch and therefore the crown also, will be resting on the back of the hand and bending the hand back at the wrist will push against the crown and that is all it would take to dis...

Re: CS & 60/60 Test case.

This post was more about seeing how much interaction is required in order to get my watch fixed/serviced and back to me in a timely fashion with minimal interaction from me. Indeed. Just over 8 weeks so far with no input from me after the watch was receipted by CW... I am counting and I will update...
