Re: 60|60 Watch Guarantee - Service Requirement

... I'm not sure why CW felt this was a road they would have wanted to go down, completely baffled by the decision? Possibly they’ve realised that their business model is screwed up. It’s all very well trumpeting a simplistic ‘3 x capital cost’ model but if you drastically under estimate your opera...

Re: 60|60 Watch Guarantee - Service Requirement

This is a change of position since the Trident Mk3 I believe? If you’re the owner of an earlier model in possession of the paper handbook that states a 60 month warranty then I’d guess you’re in a strong position to expect the 60 months to be honoured. I’m not a lawyer but I’d hazard a guess that an...

Re: 60|60 Watch Guarantee - Service Requirement

To follow up on the car analogy; to maintain your warranty you are expected to have it serviced in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines. However, legally you are not required to have it serviced by one of the manufacturers main dealers, you can use any ‘suitable’ garage of your choosing. I’v...

Re: Oris Sixty-five Diver LE Honey X Revolution

Good to see you back Gary, doing what you do best - posting pictures from the beach. Oris is one of my favourite brands, and the 65 has become their signature in my opinion. The bronze-edged bezel has been a simple change but one that’s transformed the character of the watch from a tool watch almos...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Two new ones for me: IMG_1754.jpegIMG_1753.jpeg Sizing the bracelets today. Thanks to Tim (timor54) for kindly answering my questions regarding the Oris! John, glad to be of some small assistance. I never tire of that green dial! I’d be interested in your views on the Ocean 39. It looks a very good...

A little off piste for this thread but an interesting copper dial, and surprisingly affordable for Ming

Compare and contrast - a different implementation of the CW moonphase movement.

Bronze for the ...

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

Thank you for that information. That Oris model (if it is the one on the stainless and bronze bracelet), looks interesting, though I’d need to see it in the flesh I think, to decide whether or not I would like it.

Re: Introducing Seiko Presage Prestige Line Enamel Dial, now with Spring Drive

I saw this and had the same reaction. Seiko are blurring the lines between their Prospex/Presage/GS lines. You used to have a fairly good idea what the price ranges were likely to be for any given model in one of those ranges; but no longer. They’re pushing all their prices up whilst putting their p...

Re: Can the forum format be changed?

This could be contentious... I’d agree that the forum can sometimes feel like a dark and cold place. There are periods, and occasionally topics, that provoke a lot of dialog, but in general it can feel like not a lot is happening. Personally, whilst I have Facebook account I choose not to use it as ...

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

^^ my understanding, and please correct me if I’m wrong, is that Tudor use an aluminium bronze alloy (CuAl*) as opposed to phosphor bronze alloy (CuSn*) which is the more common alloy used by most watch manufacturers including CW. Aluminium bronze tarnishes less and does not develop the green verdig...
