Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Dial Marks (Update)

^^^^
no, that's not within tolerance, it's rubbish. Send it back and CW can decide whether they want to keep a customer or refund. No way I would live with it either.

Maybe it's nice to be flattered if it strokes the ego. But show me the money....

Re: Buying back your old watches

Interesting. For me once I have decided to move a watch on, that's it. I usually agonise over it for months before pulling the trigger. There is only one watch I miss - slightly, now and then - a Rolex which I wore for 25 years and decided that it no longer suited. Nowadays I'm not so sure but I wou...

I don't think I recommend it really. She peeped over my shoulder yesterday and gave me a very clear "oooh, that's expensive" noise whilst I was drooling over Heuer Autavia. Happily the Sinn book comes without a pricelist.
Same with my excuses...now that she has accepted insanity, it's ok.

That's a good excuse! Must try it some day and see how far that gets me with SWMBO....

Thank you all. The latest is that they have agreed to fix at no charge.
Seems like justice has been done. Do keep us up to date and I hope it all works out in timely manner.

Re: Professional, Executive, Luxury, Exclusive...

I suppose I ought to post this in the Curmudgeon’s Corner, but I must admit I hate the constant pressure from companies to review their products online. I do contribute to TripAdvisor of my own volition, but I no longer do reviews that I get email requests for. That includes Trust Pilot – sorry, CW...

Re: Professional, Executive, Luxury, Exclusive...

^^^ Sounds very much like me, and thank you for getting the thread back on topic. My pleasure, Steve. Just to bitch further, user reviews had the potential to be a real boon to us cynics, but these days they are hijacked more often than not, so worth little - with a few exceptions of course. The re...

Re: Trident gaining 10 to 12 seconds....

It might be an idea to wear the watch for a longer period (several days to a couple of weeks) and observe how the timekeeping is then. Also, experiment with leaving the watch in different positions overnight (dial up, dial down, crown up, crown down) to see if there's any difference. They do prefer...

Re: Professional, Executive, Luxury, Exclusive...

Whilst not claiming to be immune I have a phobia against gratuitous advertising and block it/cut it off wherever possible, nor do I watch TV. If I cannot escape the bombardment I resolutely ignore. I too prefer to gather my own facts, sift and compare.

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Bezel Rocking movement?

Does not sound right at all.

I have a C60 mk2 and two Seikos with rotating bezels - no play in any of them and certainly no possibility of rocking.

If it were me, back to base.

I have removed the first name from my post, could I ask the person who quoted my post to do the same (H0rati0)

Thanks
Done, that's fair enough.

As I remarked at the time, no malignment intended - we do not know the facts, so judgment not appropriate.

Re: repair info

Why do you keep buying CW watches that need so much fixing? Mine stopped after two months, and they are blaming me! It is not the general experience despite the flavour of the day on here. None of my CWs have given any problems and my C8PR gets as much wrist time as any of my other watches while co...
