Re: On stepping things up

It really depends on how weighted you are towards the "quality" side of your equation. I have no personal experience of Stowa or Laco but the original pieces fetch high prices in both cases. I would suspect that Laco have lowered their game in their modern iteration while Stowa have remained true to...

Re: Please help - query on quoted run times and variable stopping

HI: OP here...Thanks all for the additional replies. CW still have the watch, so I'll talk to them tomorrow and ask them whether they've found it 'normal' etc and got a decent run time from it, and reiterate what I was finding etc. If they do say it's all looking normal and " ....you just weren't w...

Re: What's in Name?

Pertinent observations that give food for thought. I also have been vaguely discontented with direction, though I think to survive the company has to grow and most importantly work out what it should be. That may or may not fit with my plans - we'll see.

Re: Please help - query on quoted run times and variable stopping

When I was younger all my watches were hand wound (automatics were not so common) and you wound them daily. Me too and endorse completely. I even try to wind my C8PR every day when I wear it (I admit to sometimes forgetting for a night) partly ritual but partly sensible, better to keep the mainspri...

Re: Newbie CW Trident Pro 600 Owner - Did I Just Mess Up?

If anyone has a mint version - or preferably new Trident Pro 600 22mm stainless bracelet for a MKII they want to part with - please let me know! Thank-you all again. I had the same problem (I had a WTB up for a while with no joy) but finally managed to pick up an NOS on ebay. They do come up and al...

Re: Should I buy a watch winder ?

^^^^^^^^ I think you'd be looking at more like 8 hours for a full wind from stopped (1950 = 650 x 3) because the TPD is spread over 24 hours. But many winders have a " power wind" mode, ie run continuously taking into account the directional settings. I don't have a PR auto at the moment otherwise i...

Re: Should I buy a watch winder ?

I have the same aversion to manually winding an Automatic, but find that 10 - 15 minutes wear is enough to get most watches going, to then be able to set them and go. Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk I do the same, I think I can say I hardly ever hand wind an auto, but not the best way to m...

Re: C60 vs C65

So guys, when is a good time? I've missed recent sale, how often are they - is it worth cooling the heels or just go for it? Also I see there are FLE watches, what is the likelihood of an "interesting" version of the C65 showing its face in the near future? Chris FYI "Noush" rhymes with push. It's ...
