Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

If this concept is being resurrected, should we also include the original FLE GMT option? I know when it changed from a 2 tone ceramic to aluminium a lot of people were put off, myself included. However the possibility of having a single colour ceramic bezel with white face and black hands is quite...

Any idea on how many members actually voted?
Very good question! and an obvious starting point IMHO.

I asked it in one of the previous polls and got the answer that “they couldn’t tell” :-k

Re: Admin Team meets at CW towers

These ‘remember me’ login problems are clearly still impacting some people. A year or so ago there was a flurry of complaints about this and I did some digging. I came to the conclusion that it’s not a problem with the underlying phpBB software that the forum runs on. I was convinced then, and remai...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

I think there were too many choices in the end. Personally, I got to the point where I couldn’t tell them apart and lost interest!

I might be wrong but I thought the first iteration, the C60 GMT, seemed to get closer to the magic threshold for success?

CW Retro Dive Watches

Just went to the CW site the look at the clearance section, as one does... They have introduced a new top level category of Retro Dive Watches which consists of all the C65 variants including the military models. These have in turn been removed from the Dive Watch category which now only contains th...

Re: Non CW of the Day

I was happy to repossess this Damasko DA20 which has been on long-term loan to a member of my family. After 18 months of hard use, without any of the molly-coddling it would have received with me, it is great to see it is still in perfect condition. In return for getting this one back I gave away m...

Re: Bristol GTG / CW Event - Chat with Co-Founders - Saturday 2nd November 2019

Worst broadcast quality of any of them. Poor video and appalling sound. I also had over-ear noise cancelling headphones and could barely hear the dialog.

From what I could hear I probably wasn’t missing much, seemed to be a lot of long winded waffle...

Today’s purchase, Oris Aquis Date Relief.
I think that’s one of the nicest Aquis releases. Love the YM style bezel insert.

Re: Apple Watch Series 5

I’ve looked at them a couple of times in my local Apple store and I have to say I’m impressed. I think it’s a clever power saving feature to turn off colour and complications whilst you’re not looking and then restoring the full view when you lift your wrist. I also like the range of watch faces, in...
