Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

This was ever so close. In 40mm I would still own it. C65LE.jpg It was seeing this watch come up on eBay that sparked my post! But I’ve had a 43mm C65 (mk2) and it’s just too big for me. Everyone else thought it looked ok but I’m a stickler for proportion. The new mk3 trident hands lend themselves ...

Re: C60 Elite 1000 / GMT owners, does it bother you that....

Have to agree, stopping at 15 looks better. Just one of those many CW design decisions that's like marmite! I think this is true of all watch brands and we only have ourselves to blame for being so nit picky. This reminds me of cyclops vs no cyclops, date at 3 or 6, land length and whether they hit...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

I guess this really depends on your definition of sports watch. Diving by definition is a sport, and Rolex certainly agrees that a diver is a sports watch. The C60 and C65 are sports watches. I especially think that, bezel or not, the C65 fits the "sports" watch asthetic. The C65 GMT (I know it's a...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

TADAA! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: 20200729_080733.jpg Its funny, I actually prefer the lightcatcher case of the CW mock up. But I will admit that this is what I had the AT in my head when starting this thread! Objectively the AT is a hands down better watch, but its out of my price range. If CW made a...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

Make this in a 40mm and I'll buy it. http://horologyworld.com/files/attachments/monthly_2020_07/Christopher-Ward-C60-sports-watch.jpg.f3d3d2fa93414a79776992aee584b55e.jpg http://horologyworld.com/files/attachments/monthly_2020_03/C60-fixed-bezel3.jpg.edf5336fdd5ad714f1eb5d9a7cd0b841.jpg [/quote] I w...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

C65-38ADA2-S00K0-B0_Picture_1.jpg I have considered the C65 vintage but to me it’s a bit more field watch and less sporty, I also am not a fan of faux aged lume. The 38mm case however is fantastic, although I prefer a flat or box crystal. I had the C65 classic mk2 with white dial. It’s was nice but...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

Then it crossed my mind to ask how we define sports watch - is it essentially a slim dive watch with a sterile bezel? Really good point, we all will have a different opinion, but for me the “3 hander sports watch” is the dress watch for those who don’t like dress watches. It’s a watch you can wear ...

Why no 3 hander sports watches

It seems like CW don’t currently have a classic 3 hander sports watch in their product line up. Anyone know if there is one planned? I was a big fan of the C65 classic, especially the guilloche dial one with old style hands. But at 43mm and 52mm l2l it was a monster and I just couldn’t pull it off. ...

Re: Richemont Reports Quarterly Sales Down 47% Due To Covid-19

I guess people don’t buy those brands online... You can buy most Richemont brands online. I know someone who has bought a couple of JLC and Panerai online from the Boutiques during lockdown. Neil Interesting point. I’ve never bought a watch from an AD, but I’d imagined that the AD experience was pa...

Re: Brand Recognition

I find the problem is as soon as you get known, say in the workplace, as a “watch guy” people always look at your wrist and since 99% aren’t watch people the assume the watch you have is cool and interesting (and expensive). When I change jobs I make a point not to mention it

Re: Richemont Reports Quarterly Sales Down 47% Due To Covid-19

I’d be interested to know CW figures being an online only seller. My guess is similar revenue reduction because of the high value products, but with the 60 60 guarantee and the fact half the population were at home on a laptop “working” I’m not sure

That’s a new one on me, maybe worth an email to service to check (if they’re operational yet?)
