Re: New Top Gear Hosts

I was a huge fan of the show for years but I felt like toward the end of the Clarkson era things became rather stale, unfortunately the staleness has carried over into The Grand Tour. The hostage episode almost put me off the show it was so bad. Rebooting the show with Chris Evans was a disaster, he...

Re: CW Clearance Section - September 2018

I've been wanting a C7, so I picked up the automatic just now. I would have preferred the rubber strap but went with the leather. At that price I thought it was my best opportunity to get a good deal on one.

Re: Feeling confused about luxury watches

I am enjoying reading everyone’s replies here, it gives me some much needed perspective on the watch collecting hobby. I am new to all this, having owned a number of Seiko quartz-type watches for years before purchasing my first automatic, also a Seiko several years ago, it quickly became my primary...

Re: F1 2018

Petulant Vettel costing himself points again. It wasn't too painful last season, but he's got a championship winning car this year and should be driving like a champion, not like Verstappen.... Agreed. In reality Seb has had the best car pretty much all season, the big difference between him and Le...

Re: How often do you see strangers wearing a CW?

I've never actually met anyone who owns one, from time to time I have to explain what my watch is but then again I like having something that needs a little explanation.

Re: Clearance section

I am enjoying seeing everyone's purchases, I didn't find anything that I couldn't live without this time, maybe next.

I thought it was interesting that the Facebook post regarding the sale just appeared on my feed this morning, well after most items were sold.

I noticed this as well. I am wondering if there will be another sale like the one last year, I didn't find anything I had to have last year.
