Re: CWL of the day

Most pleased with my latest acquisition - a 2014 vintage CWL C9 Harrison GMT. The watch is virtually unmarked ... keeps excellent time & has that 'classic' CWL look !

Re: Confusion about SH21 COSC certification

My SH21 is in the C8 'Al Deere' - it runs just within the published spec - gaining 5-6 seconds per day ... .... in contrast to my aged C8 Pilot Mark 1 with its common or garden Sellita Movement, which is literally spot on after 24 hours ... and my C60 GMT is very close at +1 second per day ... also ...

looking for a suitable alternative strap for an early 2020 C7 Rapide Rosso Corsa (currently on plain vanilla black silicon) .....

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for . . . .. .

I believe Rolex also produced an Oyster BubbleBack back in the 40s. Designed to hid the thickness of the watch, again because of the movement by visually slimming down the watchcase with a protruding case back. It might be what CW have attempted to do this with this watch. Apologies, I did of cours...

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for . . . .. .

I’m disappointed, I was looking forward to getting my hands on this watch.

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for . . . .. .

It looks good. Whilst I don’t mind a 30 minute counter on a more dress style Chronograph, I have always viewed a full 12 hour counter as far more useful on a tool watch Chronograph such as this. Neil Agreed - but pleased that the previous Micky-Mouse 'small seconds' aka 'Breather' has been abandone...
