Re: Punching an extra hole in straps

I have the same and it works perfectly as long as you’re not yet at the part of the strap where the padding kicks in. Remember to measure twice, punch once, and don’t forget if you measure mid-hole to mid-hole, that point is the middle of the punch, not the edge. Sounds obvious but the first time I ...

Re: Advice please

If it is a hoax, what on earth would be the point? I can’t see what the hoaxer would get out of it.

Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

^ Agree. Members of CW staff read but do not engage, which is absolutely correct. There have been incidents recently of complaints being posted here and worded as if addressing CW directly, and requests for the moderators to resolve issues. This forum isn’t a Customer Service portal. If CW were to e...

Re: 3 watch travel case

Hoang Dat sells handmade watch rolls and cases. Find him on Etsy - here’s an example. I haven’t bought anything from him but he’s highly rated on some of the FB groups.

Re: Advice please

Hi Jules, welcome to the forum. As others have said, you won’t see CW watches in any shop. Anywhere. Unless it’s used. Some of the reasons many of us are here are because CW offers great watches at reasonable prices, and, this is the key, they offer a 60 Day money back guarantee if you return it in ...

It’s not like Ireland to throw in the towel, so I can only imagine he didn’t hear the gong.

Nice Kara.... :D
Yes, I bought it from a poor chap who had lost his mind :lol: - only joking - still one of my favourites Neil.

It’s stopped because I’ve run out of winder spots and the no-date dial makes it one of the easier ones to reset when I decide I want to wear it.

Re: Some wizardry needed to get this kick started!!

is it more of a risk that it does get backed but your watch never gets made? Exactly this. As a backer, you are not a consumer, so you are not backed by consumer protection legislation. Your credit card is only charged if the project is fully funded, and once that happens, then you have to wait for...

Apologies - edited my post, ended up quoting myself, then found I’d posted twice. I’ve edited this again, to remove the text.

Re: Magrette Moana Pacific Waterman GMT

I just picked up a Bronze Waterman, which at 42mm diameter & 13mm thick* is 2mm smaller than the Kara in both measures, and it certainly wears smaller as you would expect. (* Magrette’s website puts both watches as 15.3mm think - that’s incorrect for the Bronze Waterman). https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...

Re: Magrette Moana Pacific Waterman GMT

I saw that yesterday too. I like it a lot - especially the bronze variant. Timing isn’t right for me, and I have too many GMTs to be able to justify another. But, like you Guy, I am a fan of the brand, and of the customer service for which Dion is well known. His is a micro-brand which I have no hes...

Young Kiwi referee Paul Williams, in his first World Cup game (England v Tonga), is impressing me, getting decisions right and clearly explaining his reasoning. More of this please.

Re: New CW owner confused

I have bought 5 CW watches since 2017, and my experience has been mostly good, in fact I’d say very good. 2 watches (my 1st & 3rd purchases) went back - 1 for replacement and 1 for refund, and both times the experience was perfect. I was very impressed by the way they were handled at the time by And...

Re: Wrist Size with a C7 Rapide Leather Strap

^^ On my 7inch wrist the red/black Piccari leather strap was just too large on the last hole. I haven’t been able to use it, and switched to a bracelet.
