Re: CWL of the day

Ooo this is coming back to my early engineering days. All bronze is an alloy of copper and tin. Sorry I'm being a bit geeky. My days of studying metallurgy are many many years ago. I'll grab my hat :D Not at all - I deliberately chose the word alloy as saying that it was actual bronze sounded a bit...

Is that the bronze PVD one?
No, it’s bronze alloy. There was a limited release C65 that was bronze PVD.

Early start (for me at least, on a Saturday) with the Marloe Solent and BBQ bacon detail at a local children’s football tournament

Re: Forum Upgrade - October 2021

Yes, I commented on that just prior to your posting .... Indeed you did, poor scan reading on my part. ^^^ That's a curious one. :-k Are we certain it hasn't been doing that all along and we just didn't notice? I’m certain it hasn’t. I log on far too frequently for my own good and the last post hea...

Re: Forum Upgrade - October 2021

I’ve noticed something a bit odd since the upgrade. When I look at the board index page, the last post column isn’t always displaying the correct post and time. I’ve mainly noticed it for sales corner, it’ll show the correct time stamp for the most recent post, but not the correct thread title. Exam...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

The unwritten "buy on a bracelet" rule might apply to OEMs where bracelets cost nearly as much as a CW watch, but have less import with bracelets priced as reasonably as CWs, I think. I don’t think it applies at all when buying a CW. The price difference between a C63 on strap or bracelet...

Re: Barton canvas straps questions.

I recently bought a couple of Barton straps, one of which was a canvas, direct from Barton. They were part of a 2-for-1 promotion, and my rough calculations indicated that even with import duty to the UK and admin fees, it would be cheaper than buying from Amazon. To my surprise (and joy) I didn’t h...

Re: A Watermelon Watch

I received my watermelon watch last week. It was a well run campaign and a fine achievement to deliver a Kickstarter to schedule when others are failing. My first watch had an issue whereby the chronograph would reset immediately upon stopping, but the watch was returned and replaced in three workin...
