Re: C60 Trident Pro 300 Compared to BB58

It's an interesting subject and I'm in a similar position at the moment. I'm looking at two well known homages to the Rolex sub, both are equal in terms of build quality from what I can glean, but they are not Rolexes. I'm also looking at second hand BB 58's, but these too are no better in terms of ...

Re: C60 Trident Pro 300 Compared to BB58

Don't be misguided by the price of the Tudor, take away Tudors deliberate price positioning, marketing and advertising costs etc and there is not really much difference. I can understand why people compare on price and review in price categories, but the CW is every bit as well made as the Tudor. Yo...

Re: What I would Like To See In A C60 600 MK4

I think with the latest sale afoot there are enough breadcrumbs floating about that there will be a C60 MK4 (presumable 600 meters) in the future. Out of the gate, I am an unapologetic tool watch lover. The more that a watch is built for purpose the more it gets my attention. The flip side of this ...

Re: The Twelve X (Ti) - Released

I actually really like the watch, but I don't have £4k to spend on one and if I did, it'd be a second hand Black Bay 58 and maybe a tidy SM 300 to go with it (£4k buys a lot of watch(es)!) ...then there's the size, 41mm is too big for me and for this style of watch, at 38mm, it'd be about perfect. S...

If they can fit a variant of the SH21 into a 36mm case, then I'm in.

Re: New sports watch preview

I would imagine this one to be in the same price ballpark as the C60 Apex.

Re: Thoughts on a new Aquitaine

For a vintage look, I really like another mock-up done by a forum member here https://www.christopherwardforum.com/general-discussion/c65-aquitaine-heritage-concept-t62159.html I'm not a fan of faux lime or patina, preferring a natural aging or clean look when new. The aquitaine in a slightly smalle...

Re: C65 Aquitaine - Graphite (concept)

:thumbup:

The Aquitaine has a lot of untapped potential, in my opinion. Have you seen the 'heritage' mock up posted by another member here?

Re: The Rolex Explorer

It's a bizarre world we live in. Most people drive cars worth more than the watch in question and when one buys and drives a new car (mostly on some sort of finance package) no-one bats an eyelid, yet spend half that on a watch and all of a sudden perceptions change. I suppose it is due to the fact ...

Agh, and another Sealander missed.

In fact, all of the new additions appear to have already sold.

Re: January 2024 Sale

If anyone sees another 'Foxglove' C63, I'd appreciate a heads up.; I just missed the one that came up earlier. One CWE facebook group member said he cancelled his foxglove order so there should be one very sooon - keep watching the site! Thanks, nothing yet thought, unless it's already gone.
